In 2002, Vicky Ward Wrote a Profile About Jeffery Epstein in Vanity Fair...

...But it didn't tell the whole story...

In 2002, I was assigned to write a profile of Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair. This was that piece. But what was published was far from the whole story.

The Talented Mr. Epstein
Lately, Jeffrey Epstein’s high-flying style has been drawing oohs and aahs: the bachelor financier lives in New York’s largest private residence, claims to take only billionaires as clients, and flie…

I uncovered many concrete, irrefutable examples of strange business practices and it soon became quite clear: Jeffrey Epstein was most certainly not who and what he claimed to be.

I was a little mystified at how benignly he responded to my questions about his suspicious business activities. The thing I noticed was that he was *much* more focused on another topic: He would ask me again and again, “What do you have on the girls?”

I did indeed have something “on the girls”—three remarkably brave first-person accounts from a mother and her two daughters about how Epstein had tried to seduce both daughters, the younger sister then only 16.

After I filed the piece, I was told that Graydon Carter was cutting the testimony of Maria Farmer, her mother, and her sister from the piece, erasing all mention of these brave women who had come forward with their stories of abuse.

I confronted Graydon, asking why he was doing something that seemed so clear to me to be so wrong.

“He’s sensitive about the young women” was his answer.


I have thought often about the fact that if my piece had been published in full—with the names and stories of these women—the FBI may have come after Epstein sooner and perhaps some of his victims would have been saved.

The thing about Jeffrey Epstein is that people KNEW this. See Trump’s comment back in 2002 about Epstein liking “beautiful women…many of them on the younger side.”

From Page Six in March 2016: “When the Russian girls arrive in the city, they already have Jeffrey’s phone number.”

For years, Jeffrey Epstein operated in plain sight. He was untouchable. His money and connections bought him the ability to evade justice.

Jeffrey Epstein’s friendships are not insignificant. They are a BIG part of this story. He has been insulated by those he could be capable of taking down. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article232385422.html
Epstein is connected to Bill Barr:

@JujuJudge
Bill Barr’s father, Donald Barr, was headmaster at the Dalton school in NYC. He hired Jeffrey Epstein, a two-time college dropout to teach physics and calculus to high school students.

Epstein is connected to Trump Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta:

Tea Pain
@TeaPainUSA
FUN FACT: Alexander Acosta, the U.S. Attorney in Miami that cut a secret deal to keep Jeffrey Epstein out of jail and seal all the evidence was Trump’s mysterious pick for Secretary of Labor.

Coincidences take a heap of plannin’.

I urge you to back and read @jkbjournalist’s 3-part series “Perversion of Justice” that started all of this. It is a stunning expose on this egregious miscarriage of justice: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/article220097825.html
If you thought #MeToo was powerful, just wait for the fallout from this. There is more yet to come. I promise you that.

I tried to expose Jeffrey Epstein for what he is and I was silenced. Everyone who knew about Epstein was—silenced by people with more money and power and influence. Now that silence is over. It’s time for the truth to see the light.

There are some injustices that maybe only time can right. And that time has now arrived.

1. "When the Russian girls arrive in the city, they already have Jeffrey's phone number."

And Epstein also claims that he introduced Donald and Melania. Interrrresting.

Among the details of the story are that Epstein has claimed, after Trump was elected president, that it was he who introduced the future president to his current wife, First Lady Melania Trump. However, per The Times, “neither of the Trumps has ever mentioned Mr. Epstein playing a role in their meeting.” Published accounts of the relationship between Donald and Melania have stated that the couple met at the Kit Kat Club during New York Fashion Week in 1998.

2. Graydon Carter, you've got some 'splainin to do

I guess it takes more to be a good guy than to just make fun of Donald Trump’s short fingers.
