The former Prime Minister of Israel and head of Israeli Military Intelligence, Ehud Barak, was photographed “hiding his face” while entering Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion on the same day that a “bevy of young women” were seen going into the same home, the Daily Mail reports.
From The Daily Beast:
“The man who introduced me to Epstein about 17 years ago was Shimon Peres,” Barak said, uncertain if the event took place in New York or Washington, but recalling it was at an event where “there were many famous and important people, including, if I recall, both Clintons and hundreds of others.”
Since then, Barak says, he has met Epstein “more than 10 times and much less than a hundred times, but I can’t tell you exactly how many. I don’t keep count. Over the years, I’ve seen him on occasion.”
“I never attended a party with him,” Barak told The Daily Beast. “I never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls.”
Barak recalls having visited Epstein at two of his Manhattan residences and said he did visit Epstein’s private Caribbean island “once, for several hours—and years after the publications about sex parties or orgies there.” But, Barak says, “I’ve never been there at a party.”
Epstein also reportedly “entered a partnership worth millions” with Barak in 2015.
Barak’s information was also found in Epstein’s “little black book.”
Epstein’s madam was reportedly Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of media mogul and alleged Israeli Mossad agent Robert Maxwell.
In 2017, Ronan Farrow reported that Ehud Barak referred Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to a team ex-Mossad agents who allegedly used fake identities to spy on and track down his accusers as well as suppress news stories about his sexual improprieties.
CNN reported last week that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance’s office asked a judge to lower Jeffrey Epstein’s sex offender status in 2011. Judge Ruth Pickholz “said she had never seen the prosecutor’s office make a ‘downward argument’ like this,” CNN reported.
In 2015, D.A Cyrus Vance dropped model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez’s case against Harvey Weinstein even though police sources reportedly said, “We had the evidence.”
It came out Tuesday in court that Epstein had a foreign passport from Austria under a different name and his lawyers tried to justify it by saying that as “an affluent member of the Jewish faith” he needed it “for personal protection in the event of travel to dangerous areas” in the Middle East.
In a new filing, Epstein’s attorneys say the foreign passport recovered from his home was Austrian & that Epstein, “an affluent member of the Jewish faith,” intended to use it in case he was hijacked. They don’t explain why, according to prosecutors, it wasn’t issued in his name. pic.twitter.com/y5SzBrt7nu

Vicky Ward reported last week that Acosta told the Trump transition team that “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.”
Epstein allegedly wired his houses up with video cameras and microphones to surreptitiously record his high powered clients for possible blackmail purposes.
Ann Coulter said last week that she believes Epstein was running an obvious “blackmailing” operation and he may have a “state sponsor.”
I wonder who that “state sponsor” may be?
