How an elite university research center concealed its relationship with a sex offender—documents show MIT Media Lab accepted donations directed by Jeffrey Epstein far in excess of what the university has admitted to, and worked to cover it up:
New documents show that the M.I.T. Media Lab was aware of Epstein’s status as a convicted sex offender, and that Epstein directed contributions to the lab far exceeding the amounts M.I.T. has...

After Epstein was a convicted sex offender, listed as "disqualified" from donating in MIT's database, MIT Media Lab worked closely with Epstein, secretly taking donations from him or labeled as having been secured at his direction, from his contacts, including Bill Gates.

While MIT has maintained that it only accepted $800,000 from Epstein, documents and sources show that he was credited with direct involvement in at least $7.5 million of donations, and gave input about how to use the funds.

Internal emails and sources show lab leadership actively directed staff to conceal Epstein's role in the contributions. Epstein was listed only by his initials on the lab director's calendar. Staff took to calling Epstein "Voldemort" or "he who must not be named."

Epstein was secretly invited to meet with faculty and leadership. He was accompanied by two young women, and lab staff feared for their safety. Staff were told to avoid naming Epstein in emails about the meeting and to prevent a professor who objected from spotting Epstein.

Whistleblowers said they feared the lab helped Epstein shield himself with his relationships with prestigious institutions—and that they believed a cover-up was ongoing.

Is that the same lab that developed all the Chromebook data collecting technology used in schools? Gee, I wonder why Epstein would be interested in profiling data on children 🤔. Oh, and Chronebooks are mandatory in most schools now.

Bill Barr's dad gave him a job teaching at a college. Young girls when he was 21. Nope. No degree of any kind.

Name names or go back to sleep. No one cares about Epstein's money.
