I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003

Epstein had caught the attention of the press when he had flown Bill Clinton on his jet to Africa. No one knew who he was or understood how he’d made his money.

It became obvious as I was reporting his story that you could essentially divide Jeffrey Epstein’s biography into two themes. One was the hidden source of his wealth—he claimed he’d fueled a lifestyle of vast homes, a private jet, and endless travel by managing the money of billionaires and taking a commission, a story that no one I spoke to believed

This story is getting weirder all the time. I had read many times that Epstein earned his wealth as a hedge fund manager which I presumed would be an easy thing to verify, but based on this article, it might not be so clear cut.
