Bill Gates visited Jeffrey Epstein's NYC townhouse multiple times, new book claims


Billionaires Bill Gates and Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a brief history of meetings, according to a new book by Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie Brown.

The former Microsoft CEO joined the disgraced financier at his Manhattan townhouse at least three times in the early 2010s, including one time during which he stayed late into the night, according to an excerpt of Brown's new book, "Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story," which will be released on Tuesday. 

Epstein was trying to secure a deal with Gates through his charity, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in which Epstein would help the foundation secure funds, claiming he "had connections to trillions of dollars of his clients' money," and reap 0.3% of "whatever money he raised," Brown wrote, citing a 2019 New York Times report.

"Others who worked for Gates’s foundation also visited Epstein’s mansion several times, and Epstein spoke to both Bill and Melinda Gates about a proposed charitable fund that could generate sizable fees for Epstein," Brown wrote. "Epstein hoped to attract donations from some of his wealthy friends as part of the venture, seeded with Gates Foundation funds, that would be used for global health causes."

The financier and billionaire tech entrepreneur reportedly discussed a philanthropic partnership through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and JPMorgan, which, at the time, were creating the Global Health Investment Fund, the Times reported. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with an endowment of nearly $50 billion, donates about $5 billion annually to causes around the world.
