On Saturday, Elon Musk took to Twitter to question why the “leaking” Department of Justice will not reveal the client list of Jeff Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
“Only thing more remarkable than DOJ not leaking the list is that no one in the media cares. Doesn’t that seem odd?,” he wrote. It’s a question that many online have been asking for ages ever since the disgraced financier was arrested.
Responding to himself, Musk wrote “Sometimes I think my list of enemies is too short, so…”
Underneath the tweet, a user named “Not Jerome Powell” replied to the billionaire with a picture of Musk beside Ghislaine Maxwell with the caption “I found one.” It was a reference to accusations that Musk himself had been associated with sordid crimes of Epstein and Maxwell.
Musk immediately responded saying, “Ah yes, Maxwell photobombing me at a @VanityFair Oscars party – you should [ask] them why they invited her.”
He continued, “The same people who push this photo say nothing about prominent people who actually went to his island a dozen times. Also very strange …”
Underneath the exchange, someone posted a screenshot of a Vanity Affair article from 2003.
“On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, home to some of the most expensive real estate on earth, exists the crown jewel of the city’s residential town houses. With its 15-foot-high oak door, huge arched windows, and nine floors, it sits on—or, rather, commands—the block of 71st Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues. Almost ludicrously out of proportion with its four- and five-story neighbors, it seems more like an institution than a house. This is perhaps not surprising—until 1989 it was the Birch Wathen private school. Now it is said to be Manhattan’s largest private residence,” wrote Vanity Affair about Epstein at the time.
Epstein traveled in the same circles as the rich and powerful and allegedly kept a “black book” of the names of people he had done business with.
During the Maxwell trial, one of Epstein’s pilots told the court that he flew several famous people on the “Lolita Express” including: Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Donald Trump, Kevin Spacey, and others.
Do you agree with Musk that investigators should release the Epstein client list if they have it? Let us know your thoughts below.
