But who was he blackmailing for?
I think this is one of those things that goes much much deeper down a rabbit hole into darker things most will never be able to prove with 100 percent certainty, but it's definitely dark as fuck down there.
financial interest. Look at who gave him his first mansion for $10
By the time Epstein met Wexner, the latter was a retail legend who had built a $3 billion empire--one that now includes Victoria's Secret, Express, and Bath & Body Works--from $5,000 lent him by his aunt. "Wexner saw in Jeffrey the type of person who had the potential to realize his [Jeffrey's] dreams," says someone who has worked closely with both men. "He gave Jeffrey the ball, and Jeffrey hit it out of the park."
Wexner, through a trust, bought the town house in which Epstein now lives for a reported $13.2 million in 1989. In 1993, Wexner married Abigail Koppel, a 31-year-old lawyer, and the newlyweds relocated to Ohio; in 1996, Epstein moved into the town house. Public documents suggest that the house is still owned by the trust that bought it, but Epstein has said that he now owns the house.
Wexner trusts Epstein so completely that he has assigned him the power of fiduciary over all of his private trusts and foundations, says a source close to Wexner. In 1992, Epstein even persuaded Wexner to put him on the board of the Wexner Foundation in place of Wexner's ailing mother. Bella Wexner recovered and demanded to be reinstated. Epstein has said they settled by splitting the foundation in two.
Supposedly Epstein made his money in finance and left Bear Stearns after having ambitions greater than the firm could provide. However, it's not really clear how he made his money:
"Hoffenberg told me that he'd met Epstein shortly after Epstein had been kicked out of Bear Stearns in 1981 for "getting into trouble" and that Hoffenberg had seen charm and talent in him --"he has a way of getting under your skin"--and had hired him as a "consultant" to work with.
Luck did shine upon me that day. I opened the first box, and there was Epstein's deposition in a civil case explaining in his own testimony that he had indeed been guilty of a "reg d violation" while at Bear Stearns and that he'd been asked to leave the investment firm; it was the nail in the coffin I needed.
I had discovered many other concrete, irrefutable examples of strange business practices by Epstein, and while I still couldn't tell you exactly what he did do to subsidize his lifestyle, my piece would certainly show that he was definitely not what he claimed to be."
