In a fascinating report The Sun disclosed that infamous & now deceased pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was initially bankrolled by controversial billionaire media tycoon Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine Maxwell’s father.
Frenchman Jean-Luc Brunel, a model scout pal of Epstein, is said to have disclosed Maxwell’s involvement to friends almost 20 years ago.
A former close associate of Brunel told The Sun: “He was having a conversation with some acquaintances in New York City around 2002.
“Jean-Luc was telling them how Ghislaine’s father Robert Maxwell was one of the reasons why Jeffrey Epstein had money.
“He said Maxwell had been one of Epstein’s early investment clients. I assumed that Maxwell had invested in Epstein, who then used that money to make his own”
US lawyers investigating Epstein’s crimes and those of his alleged co-conspirators have this information in the form of sworn testimony.
Maxwell swindled a pension fund before he was found dead in 1991.
Maxwell, an Orthodox Jew, escaped from Nazi occupation, joined the Czechoslovak Army in exile during World War II and was decorated after active service in the British Army. In subsequent years he worked in publishing, building up Pergamon Press to a major publishing house. After six years as a Labour MP during the 1960s, Maxwell again put all his energy into business, successively buying the British Printing Corporation, Mirror Group Newspapers and Macmillan Publishers, among other publishing companies.

In July 1984, Maxwell acquired Mirror Group Newspapers, the publisher of six British newspapers, including the Daily Mirror, He also owned a half-share of MTV in Europe and other European television interests, Maxwell Cable TV and Maxwell Entertainment, according to the NY Times
In 1991 his body was discovered floating in the Atlantic Ocean, after he toppled off yacht The Lady Ghislaine, named after his daughter.
His daughter Ghislaine fled to New York City after his death and soon began dating Epstein, The Sun reported.
Maxwell’s death triggered a flood of instability, with banks frantically calling in their massive loans. His sons Kevin and Ian struggled to hold the empire together but were unable to prevent its collapse. It emerged that, without adequate prior authorization, Maxwell had used hundreds of millions of pounds from his companies’ pension funds to shore up the shares of the Mirror Group to save his companies from bankruptcy, the NY Times explained.
