Last week, the public learned a few more names of the rich and famous who were known to hobnob with the late notorious sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
As New York magazine reported on Friday, new court records filed in a case in the U.S. Virgin Islands revealed that Epstein’s wealthy associates included people like Bill Gates, Google co-founder Seregy Brin, PayPal founder Peter Thiel, former Democratic Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers and left-wing author Noam Chomsky.
While there is still much the public does not know about Epstein’s secretive client list and shady dealings, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has pledged to bring it all to light.

According to the Florida Standard on Monday, the Republican presidential candidate promised that, if elected, he would declassify everything the federal government has about Epstein, whose base was once in Palm Beach County.
“I don’t know why they didn’t make all that stuff public,” DeSantis said during a campaign stop in Iowa. “You have a right to know what happened with all of that, and we will declassify or put out whatever we can on that.”
Epstein, whose front was operating as a financier for the ultra-wealthy, reportedly sex-trafficked dozens of underage girls from his South Florida mansion. He obtained them for unnamed clients, including ferrying them to a private island. He also molested several of the girls or paid them to have sex with him.
