NEWW YORK, NY – Never one to shy away from sharing his opinion from the public, billionaire tech tycoon Elon Musk questioned on Twitter recently why the U.S. Department of Justice has yet to “leak” the client list of deceased financier and pedophile sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
Musk, 50, recently tweeted a meme entitled “things I’ll never see in my life” along with a image depicting four elusive things: a fire-breathing dragon, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a unicorn, and “The Epstein/Maxwell client list.”
Along with the meme, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO tweeted, “Only thing more remarkable than DOJ not leaking the list is that no one in the media cares. Doesn’t that seem odd?”
Musk followed that up with a second tweet that read, “Sometimes I think my list of enemies is too short, so…”
Epstein, a disgraced U.S. financier and convicted sex offender who committed suicide in 2019 in a Manhattan jail – under circumstances that some found suspicious – while awaiting federal sex-trafficking charges involving minors, was alleged to have been extensively involved in the sexual exploitation of women and underage girls.
His partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, was recently sentenced to 20 years in prison for her connection to Epstein’s trafficking operation; she had originally been offered a lighter sentence in exchange for providing a list of Epstein’s illicit clients, but turned down the deal while maintaining her innocence. She was convicted in December and a subsequent attempt to appeal the decision was dismissed in May.
Now defunct news website Gawker had originally posted a “black book” that purportedly belonged to Epstein that listed numerous alleged individuals that he was associated with – including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, as well as Hollywood director Woody Allen – although no one in the book has yet to be accused of or charged with any crimes.
Musk was apparently referring to several high-profile leaks and numerous clandestine investigations performed by the Justice Department during the Trump Administration against reporters and adversaries who were critical of the President at the time.
