Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn and the DNC megadonor who funded a defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, is facing some tough questions regarding his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Hoffman, who has donated millions to Democrat campaigns and initiatives, has reportedly been identified as a guest at Jeffery Epstein’s notorious island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Epstein died while in custody in 2019, awaiting trial for multiple sexual assault and trafficking of minors charges. His list of associates and clients is just now coming to light.
The Wall Street Journal was the first to publish Epstein’s list, which reportedly includes notables such as CIA Director William Burns, former MIT professor Noam Chomsky and an Obama-era official.
Hoffman denies inappropriate conduct and states he met with Epstein in an attempt to convince him to donate to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Hoffman did not immediately explain why Epstein’s records show he was also scheduled to sleep at Epstein’s townhouse in New York City in 2014.
Hoffman told the Journal that he regrets meeting with Epstein. “It gnaws at me that, by lending my association, I helped his reputation, and thus delayed justice for his survivors.”
Hoffman added: “While I relied on MIT’s endorsement, ultimately, I made the mistake, and I am sorry for my personal misjudgment.”
Former MIT Media Lab head Joi Ito reported that Hoffman went to Epstein’s famed island at his request “after he confirmed that Epstein had been an approved donor target for MIT in accordance with university rules and regulations.”
MIT acknowledged receiving donations from Epstein. The board now regrets that decision and reports the school has donated money to nonprofits helping women who have been sexually abused.
The Epoch Times reported that in addition to funding the in-process lawsuit against Trump by E. Jean Carroll, who is accusing Trump of raping her in a department store during business hours sometime in 1995 or 1996, “Hoffman has funded groups that created election disinformation, including a group that worked to suppress Republican voters.”
