Bill Gates Explains Why He Met With Sex Offender Jeffrey Epstein On Multiple Occasions

Chris White on September 11, 2019

Microsoft founder Bill Gates confirmed Tuesday that he had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein after the disgraced millionaire financier pleaded guilty for soliciting prostitution from an underage girl.

Gates denied having any business relationship with Epstein but did admit to meeting with him in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, which noted aspects of his connections to Epstein. He reportedly met with Epstein in 2013 when the billionaire philanthropist was still the chairman of Microsoft.

“I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him. I didn’t go to New Mexico or Florida or Palm Beach or any of that,” Gates said. “There were people around him who were saying, hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows a lot of rich people.”

Gates is worth $100 billion as of September, according to Forbes.

Epstein, an enigmatic figure who hobnobbed with academics and celebrities, pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting an underage prostitute and was listed in the national sex offender registry. Federal prosecutors in New York accused him of overseeing a sex-trafficking network before his death in August of an apparent suicide.

Gates noted that the meetings were not of a private nature.

“Every meeting where I was with him were meetings with men,” Gates said. “I was never at any parties or anything like that. He never donated any money to anything that I know about.”

Bill and his wife, Melinda, run the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a charity with assets in 2018 that were worth almost $48 billion, CNBC reported Tuesday, citing documents released by the charity.

Gates did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for further comment through the foundation’s press office.

  • Trump never went to meetings where Epstein was. He only caught a ride back to NY from Fla. He also banned him from Mara lar go for inappropriate behavior with the girls that worked there. So there you have their relationship.

  • You mean to tell me that Bill Gates doesn't know any rich people, and doesn't associates with people in that rareafide group, and had to depend on Epstien for introducitons? What a load of BS!!

  • That is the problem with common core, they gave money to states to further that agenda. That money is only going to what helps them, not the people who do need it. There would be no excuse for any schools doing so poorly by their standards, if this was to boost education. They are the ones that are keeping the schools in a mess. There is a reason, they want to keep every child the same, they do not want leaders.

  • Who says the Clintons aren't using that money? They're using the HELL out of it to support their LAVISH lifestyle! I know that Bill and Melinda Gates DO give billions to various charities, but the Clintons? Not so much! As for his meetings with Epstein, his excuse sounds plausible, but that doesn't mean it's true.

  • Has anyone asked Bill Gates why he keeps his building # 22 [a ritualistic number], hidden from outsiders; remember John F. Kennedy/Date of death
    11-22, 1963

  • Did Bill explain what the meetings were about? I don't think I heard that. He tried really hard to explain that the meetings had other pervs....I mean other men in attendace. There is no way he didn't know about Epstein. A man with that much money knows whatever he wants to know.

  • I wonder why a charity has 48 billions in assets. Why isn't that money used to help thousands of homeless veterans that in the streets of California and other states? Same with the Clinton Foundation that have billions in assets. What is the use of all that money if they aren't going to use it?
