Billionaire Aussie Trucking Magnate Hosted Maxwell & Epstein on Sydney Harbour

Update: survivor Virginia Roberts has shared with us what Jeffrey Epstein told her about his alleged Lindsay Fox visit to Australia:

The Lindsay Fox family behind the Australian trucking empire once hosted Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein during a visit to Australia, according to a news report.

It was claimed Epstein and Maxwell were treated to a Sydney harbour cruise on the Fox company’s 100ft yacht.

This was during a NSW leg of their December 1995 trip, according to The Sydney Morning Herald archive.
But when asked in 2020 about the report, Mr Lindsay Fox said he’d checked his diary and was in Hawaii.

In the article, the party was described as: “one of the most coveted Christmas invitations in Sydney. This may have something to do with the guests of honour.”

The two New Yorkers supposedly stopped off in Melbourne to spend more time with patriarch Lindsay Fox and his family at their home.

In the article, it describes “millionaire” Epstein as: “a property developer, who is given to zipping around Manhattan in a Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit.”

His then-girlfriend is “the beautiful, feisty daughter of the late disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell.”

Back on the 1995 trip to Australia, a source supposedly questioned the wisdom of taking Ghislaine on a cruise, as her father was found drowned near his yacht.

“You can’t visit Sydney and not go out on the harbour – it’s like going to Paris and avoiding the Eiffel Tower,” a source said.

The guest list included the disgraced financier Rodney Adler, billionaire James Packer and singer Demi Hines

Did Jeffrey Epstein visit Lindsay Fox?

Epstein’s Money: Assistant a Back Door for Secret Political Donations?

Epstein Money: Why would a personal assistant from a Republican foothold in Connecticut donate $2600 to a Democrat congresswoman who represents the US Virgin Islands?

Jeffrey Epstein’s assistant Lesley Taylor Groff did just that in 2014 when she handed over $2600 to Representative Stacey Plaskett. This is the politician who faced media heat about returning her Jeffrey Epstein donations.

Plaskett told CNBC last year; “My litmus test for accepting campaign contributions has been based on whether the donor’s money was made legally or by ill-gotten means and that the contributor will not ask of me or my Congressional office for any special favors. All my contributions have passed that test.

In this case however, I am uncomfortable having received money from someone who has been accused of these egregious actions multiple times,” said Plaskett, who represents the U.S. Virgin Islands in the House as a delegate.

By 2014, Epstein was toxic due to his jail stint and subsequent donations.

Epstein’s Money

Lesley Taylor Groff has been accused in civil court cases of playing a crucial role in Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.

She has also been listed as one of Epstein’s coconspirators on papers from the controversial immunity deal struck before Epstein went to jail in Florida.

In a statement sent to TheWrap, Groff’s attorney Michael Bachner denied she had engaged in any misconduct when she worked for Epstein.

“As an executive assistant to Epstein, Lesley worked as part of a professional staff that included in-house attorneys, accountants, an office manager and other office staff,” he said.

Epstein’s Money

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t the only one in his sphere who donated to politicians.

One thing we know about this case is it is also about politics – the politics of gender, the politics of income and the politicisation of the justice system.

Thanks to Open Secrets we found records of political donations made by:

Was the 2007 donation made while Lesley worked for Epstein?

These donations could mean nothing. They might lead to some insights. We don’t allege anything inappropriate here but this blog is a record of the Epstein case.

The donations could mean nothing or everything.

The Prince and the Pervert Podcast tells the story of a global criminal conspiracy, a prince, socialite, billionaire who may or may not have been murdered.

Welcome to the world of The Jeffrey Epstein – our podcast about one of America’s most infamous billionaires.

The Jeffrey Epstein case is one of the most fascinating, complex and disturbing criminal cases in recent memory.

The Dead Man’s Money

It involves a global criminal conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of power. But it’s also an story about friendship and betrayal.

What does it say about our society that one of the most powerful men in America, with friends in high places, could be murdered under mysterious circumstances while behind bars awaiting trial for sex trafficking minors? 

And what do his connections to foreign governments mean for American national security? 

These are just some of the questions we’ll attempt to answer on this podcast as we explore one man’s life through his death…and beyond.

We’ll tell you all about it every week on The Prince & The Pervert Podcast – available now wherever you listen to podcasts!

Epstein Video Shows Pedophile at New York Art Fundraiser

Epstein Video: The New York Academy of Art is so unapologetic about its relationship with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that it still showcases video of the dead sex trafficker.

A blonde female can be seen viewing the art with the now-dead pedophile at the academy’s 2014 star-studded Tribeca Ball.

According to the academy, Epstein also donated $30,000 to the school that same year.

We believe the other person in the video is Julia Stepanova, an Epstein Associate. Here she is pictured at the ball with a model also associated with the dead pedophile.

Epstein, who died last year in jail, was a long-term supporter of the academy and sat on its board from 1987 to 1994.

We believe this is some of the last public Epstein video of Epstein before his death.

Survivor Maria Farmer has made salacious claims about the academy’s chair , Eileen Guggenheim, who took art students to Epstein’s New Mexico ranch. They have been denied by the academic.

In a report issued in June, written by its lawyers, the academy attacked Ms Farmer’s claims.

The Daily Beast said the report stated, “Farmer as an unreliable narrator and uses discrepancies in her court testimonies to prove her “dubious credibility. It says that Mrs Guggenheim “played no role” in Farmer’s relationship to Epstein.

The document also backed Mrs Guggenheim’s denials & blamed Ms Farmer for her sister’s sexual assault.

At the time, it was condemned for victim shaming.

Jim Walden, a representative for the law firm that produced the report, issued a statement to The Daily Beast: “In a world where people’s lives and reputations can be forever ruined by untested allegations, it is not ‘victim blaming’ to hold people—even the victims of crime—accountable for their words,” Walden said.

“Here, without taking away from Ms. Farmer’s terrible experiences with Epstein, her allegations against the Academy and Ms. Guggenheim are false, and the record in this regard is quite clear.”

According to the academy back in January:

“Epstein served as a board member from 1987-1994. Both men left the board in 1994. When Epstein returned to New York after serving his prison sentence in Florida, he purchased tickets to one fundraising event in 2012 and two events in 2014.

He also made a donation of $30,000 in 2014.

There was no inappropriate contact or behavior during this time period that we know of. However with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight we wish we had barred him from the premises.”
