“The nation’s spy chief, a longtime college president and top women in finance. The circle of people who associated with Jeffrey Epstein years after he was a convicted sex offender is wider than previously reported, according to a trove of documents that include his schedules.
“William Burns, director of the Central Intelligence Agency since 2021, had three meetings scheduled with Epstein in 2014, when he was deputy secretary of state, the documents show. They first met in Washington and then Mr. Burns visited Epstein’s townhouse in Manhattan.
“Kathryn Ruemmler, a White House counsel under President Barack Obama, had dozens of meetings with Epstein in the years after her White House service and before she became a top lawyer at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in 2020. He also planned for her to join a 2015 trip to Paris and a 2017 visit to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean.
“Leon Botstein, the president of Bard College, invited Epstein, who brought a group of young female guests, to the campus. Noam Chomsky, a professor, author and political activist, was scheduled to fly with Epstein to have dinner at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse in 2015.
“None of their names appear in Epstein’s now-public “black book” of contacts or in the public flight logs of passengers who traveled on his private jet. The documents show that Epstein arranged multiple meetings with each of them after he had served jail time in 2008 for a sex crime involving a teenage girl and was registered as a sex offender. The documents, which include thousands of pages of emails and schedules from 2013 to 2017, haven’t been previously reported.
“The documents don’t reveal the purpose of most of the meetings. The Wall Street Journal couldn’t verify whether every scheduled meeting took place.
“Most of those people told the Journal they visited Epstein for reasons related to his wealth and connections. Several said they thought he had served his time and had rehabilitated himself. Mr. Botstein said he was trying to get Epstein to donate to his school. Mr. Chomsky said he and Epstein discussed political and academic topics.

“Mr. Burns met with Epstein about a decade ago as he was preparing to leave government service, said CIA spokeswoman Tammy Kupperman Thorp. “The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector,” she said. “They had no relationship.”
“Ms. Ruemmler had a professional relationship with Epstein in connection with her role at law firm Latham & Watkins LLP and didn’t travel with him, a Goldman Sachs spokesman said. Epstein introduced her to potential legal clients, such as Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates, the spokesman said. “I regret ever knowing Jeffrey Epstein,” Ms. Ruemmler said.”

Tip of the iceberg. The stuff see eye A is allowing to be made public, I would guess. All the usual names we've long suspected of being linked together in these foul affairs. Thanks for reposting the full article.
Reposting my reply to Cindy Sheehan, who had a blurb on Chomsky-Epstein in Notes:
/ Now, why would an “academic” known more for criticism of the political ‘establishment’ be hobnobbing with the likes of a “sex offender” and sex trafficker - and to top it all, have dinner also with that “great artist,” Woody Allen (accompanied by his very young wife-stepdaughter)? Yes, nothing unusual about all this. /
What I read in excerpts from some of Kirby Sommers' work on Epstein appalled me. How the maids, for instance (some Filipino, natch), would have to clean up after them and their revolting habits in daily life and ... (doesn't bear repeating here). That's just their "normal lives." (I forget now her source for these stories.) What about all the sinful and criminal activities, too?
I still think Epstein was *the* (or *a*) key agent for creating what CA Fitts calls "control files" on people in DC and Hollywood, the better to keep them all on a tight leash. All H'wood A-Listers are likely linked. Everyone prominent who's been pushing the "COVID," CV Jab, Ukraine, WEF narratives.
I want to know every detail of what my government was up to with Epstein. After all they used our taxpayer money to do whatever it is they did (obviously not moral or likely legal). Every damn detail and I want it now.
