New York Magazine releases a profile on Jeffrey Epstein, in which Donald Trump says he has known Epstein for 15 years (since 1987) and that he’s a terrific guy. 

Epstein likes to tell people that he’s a loner, a man who’s never touched alcohol or drugs, and one whose nightlife is far from energetic. And yet if you talk to Donald Trump, a different Epstein emerges. “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump booms from a speakerphone. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Some other tidbits from the feature piece that may not be mentioned elsewhere on Trump File:

  1. It’s rumored that Epstein manages money for the Rockefeller family; he used to be a board member of the Rockefeller Institute.
  2. He is a member of the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.
  3. He once called Bill Clinton “the world’s greatest politician.”
  4. Friends of Ghislaine Maxwell say that it’s as common to see Prince Andrew at her parties as it is to see Russian prostitutes. Note: Ghislaine’s father Robert Maxwell is known to have worked for the Russian mafia leader Semion Mogilevich, who operates an international sex trafficking ring.
  5. Epstein began his own firm and started getting billionaire clients out of thin air. No marketing or promotion at all.
  6. He “bought” his Manhattan residence from Leslie Wexner. He also has his Palm Beach house and a castle in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He had a house in New Albany, Ohio, but he sold it before 2002.

Also quoted in the article are Bill Clinton (through a spokesperson), Jeffrey T. Leeds, Dennis Block, Gerald Edelman, Stephen Kosslyn, Martin Nowak, and Danny Hillis.
