Jeffrey Epstein, the financier arrested in July on charges of sex trafficking of underage girls, died by apparent suicide in a Manhattan jail on Saturday.
Throughout his life, he hobnobbed with world leaders and elite executives, including tech moguls.
The New York Times columnist James B. Stewart published an article on Monday about his August 2018 interview with Epstein. Stewart included Epstein’s thoughts on Silicon Valley and its tech moguls.
“Mr. Epstein then meandered into a discussion of other prominent names in technology circles,” Stewart wrote. “He said people in Silicon Valley had a reputation for being geeky workaholics, but that was far from the truth: They were hedonistic and regular users of recreational drugs. He said he’d witnessed prominent tech figures taking drugs and arranging for sex.”
Here are some of the tech moguls who have been connected to Epstein.
