#1 Notice if you will, the complete absence of the term "money laundering." Oh yes, and then there's the almost laughable "German banker lack of oversight" and attention to detail. If you have made some sort of mental connection between these foreign transactions and intelligence source operations, you are obviously a deranged conspiracy theorist.

All tidy and cleaned up now for a paltry $150. Financial 'damage control,' amazing, isn't it ?

USA Today - Deutsche Bank to pay $150 million for dealings with Jeffrey Epstein, foreign banks

New York regulators faulted Deutsche Bank for a lack of oversight, saying the bank ignored a wide variety of red flags after taking on Epstein's accounts in 2013 despite him previously pleading guilty to prostitution-related charges involving a minor.

Among the suspicious Deutsche Bank transactions, according to DFS:

  • Numerous payments to alleged Epstein co-conspirators who aided in his sexual abuse
  • Nearly $7 million in settlement cost, as well as $6 million in legal costs for Epstein and his co-conspirators
  • Various payments to Russian models and women with eastern European names, as well as rent and tuition payments
  • More than $800,000 in cash withdrawals over four years

    When Epstein was charged with sex trafficking in 2019, he was accused of systematically grooming and abusing young women, many of them minors. His close associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, was arrested last week on federal charges accusing her of rounding up young women for Epstein's sex-trafficking operation.

    One of his bank accounts, belonging to an Epstein trust known as "The Butterfly Trust," made regular payments to three co-conspirators and a number of women with eastern European names.

    When Deutsche Bank inquired about the payments, Epstein and his team said the payments were to employees and friends. The bank at the time was aware that payments were made to one person who was previously accused but never charged as a co-conspirator, but still approved the transactions, according to the settlement.

    The settlement, known as a "consent order," was signed by New York regulators and representatives of Deutsche Bank and its affiliates.

    "deranged conspiracy theorist." O.K. But recently, there have been far too many conspiracies theories proven to be actual conspiracies.

    $150 million. Epstein, a simple math teacher who became an investment genius was juggling large amounts of money. He had little St. James Island. He had the ranch in New Mexico where he was promoting eugenics and trying to breed super humans. He had the largest apartment in New York. All these were worth millions.

    But the kicker is that he only had one billionaire client in Ohio.

    #3 I'm a simpleton here but why is a bank expected to interrogate its depositors about where they get and send their money?

    #4 I know one thing, Ho, whenever you make a deposit of $10,000 or more, they have to notify the IRS.
