Every fall, the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, takes a gang of writers out on a retreat called Campfire. The retreat is incredibly secretive, but what we do know is that the writers love it. However, not all is perfect in writer paradise. Last year, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell attended the retreat. This raises interesting questions about connections between wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
2,000 pages of secret files pertaining to a 2015 lawsuit from one of Jeffrey Epstein’s “sex slaves” have been made public. Virginia Giuffre Roberts filed this lawsuit against Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, which settled in 2017. Maxwell was named by Epstein’s victims as his “procurer”. Files released were private until August. An appeals court ordered pages reflecting public interest should be public.
Though 2,000 have been released, there are around 10,000 files in total. Around 8,000 of the files remain secret from the public. Unreleased files are still under review for release or not.
On Aug. 10th, multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein allegedly committed suicide while in jail awaiting trial. Considering that guards fell asleep, the camera footage is unusable, and an autopsy found that Epstein had broken bones in his neck—something unusual for suicides—we may never truly know what happened in that cell in Manhattan.
