Former Israeli PM And Military Intelligence Ehud Barak Visited Jeffrey Epstein’s Apartment Monthly According To WSJ


Former Israeli Prime Minister and head of Israeli Military Intelligence Ehud Barak visited Jeffrey Epstein’s New York City apartment dozens of times between 2013 and 2017, documents obtained by the Wall Street Journal reveal. 

“After Epstein was arrested in 2019, photos were published in newspapers showing Mr. Barak, the Israeli politician, entering Epstein’s townhouse in 2016,” WSJ reported.

“The documents provide new details about his scheduled meetings,” WSJ continued. “They show that between 2013 and 2017, Epstein planned at least three dozen meetings with Mr. Barak. They had appointments every month for 11 consecutive months starting in December 2015, the documents show.”

 

Mr. Barak told the Journal he was introduced to Epstein in 2003 by Shimon Peres, another former prime minister of Israel, at a social event with U.S. dignitaries, and that he would regularly visit Epstein when he traveled to New York. “Quite often, I came to the townhouse with my wife,” Mr. Barak said. Mr. Peres died in 2016.

Mr. Barak also took flights on Epstein’s private jet, the documents show. In January 2014, he met Epstein at his Palm Beach mansion and then they flew together to Tampa, where Epstein dropped him off and continued on to New York.

“I flew only twice on his airplane, together with my wife and Israeli security detail,” Mr. Barak said. He said he remembers the trip in Florida was to visit a U.S. military installation in Tampa.

“I never participated in any party or any other improper event around [Epstein], and never met him with girls or minors, or even adult women in improper context or behavior,” Mr. Barak said.

Barek didn’t say he was with his wife after getting exposed by the Daily Mail but did claim that he “never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls.”

Epstein “entered a partnership worth millions” with Barak in 2015.

Pro-Israel billionaire Leon Black, who funded Epstein together with pro-Israel billionaire Les Wexner to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, “scheduled more than 100 meetings with Epstein from 2013 to 2017,” the WSJ reported.

Epstein also met with former US Secretary of the Treasury Larry Summers after his conviction for child solicitation:

Lawrence Summers needed $1 million to finance an online poetry project his wife was creating. The former Treasury secretary and onetime Harvard University president turned to Jeffrey Epstein.

“I need small scale philanthropy advice. My life will be better if i raise $1m for Lisa,” Mr. Summers said in an email to Epstein in April 2014, referring to his wife, Elisa New, a Harvard professor. “Mostly it will go to make it a pbs series and for teacher training. Ideas?” 

Epstein said that he was unable meet in Cambridge, Mass. Mr. Summers invited him to dinner, according to a collection of documents seen by The Wall Street Journal. Two days later they made plans to connect at The Fireplace, a cozy restaurant in nearby Brookline, one of several meetings the two men planned that year.
