'40 VISITS AND HIS OWN OFFICE': JEFFREY EPSTEIN'S LINKS TO HARVARD UNIVERSITY REVEALED IN NEW REPORT

SOURCE: YAHOO
Jeffrey Epstein had his own office at Harvard University and visited the college more than 40 times after he was released from prison on sex crimes charges in 2010, according to a new report.

An internal review by Harvard, published on Friday, laid bare deep, longstanding ties between Epstein and the university that were only cut after fresh allegations emerged against the disgraced late financier in 2018.

Harvard confirmed that Epstein, who died in a New York prison in August awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges, had made more than $9 million (£7m) in donations to them over the years.

His money funded the construction of at least one campus building.

The review found that no gifts were received from Epstein, who was not an alumni, following his conviction in 2008 for Florida state sex crimes, one of which involved soliciting sex for pay from an underage girl.

Lawrence Bacow, Harvard’s president, said the university has donated $210,000 of unspent donations to groups that support victims of sex trafficking and assault

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attempting to "buy respectability" is nothing new in American society; but where the hell was Harvard upper management, both academic and financial, to vet precisely why Epstein was attempting to buy it here, and what the underlying reasons for this "purchase" might be?

When an educational institution with the prestige of Harvard, will take "anybody's money", it begs the question of true transparency; unless, of course, that no longer matters to the institution in question.
