Mark Epstein, the younger brother of the late Jeffrey Epstein, expressed skepticism regarding the existence of alleged blackmail sex tapes involving his brother and powerful individuals.
“This is just an opinion — I never really believed they existed,” Mark Epstein, aged 69, said in an interview with the New York Post.
“Jeffrey was buying islands in the Virgin Islands. He had his own private 727 [jet]. Do you think he needed to make money by extortion?” Mark said.
Mark Epstein described his brother’s financial prowess, noting his ability to navigate the complexities of Wall Street.
“He knew how to make money in the financial world. He knew all the dirty tricks. When he was on Wall Street he learned all the tricks before Wall Street was cleaned up.”
Jeffrey Epstein’s career in finance began at Bear Stearns in the late 1970s, eventually leading to the establishment of his own consulting firm in the early 1980s. This venture served as a springboard into the realm of major financial players and the establishment of influential connections.
Theories have emerged since Jeffrey Epstein’s 2019 arrest and subsequent death, suggesting he filmed influential men in compromising situations for extortion. These allegations include claims that Epstein’s associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, acknowledged the existence of tapes featuring Donald Trump and Bill Clinton during a 2016 conversation with former “60 Minutes” producer Ira Rosen.
However, Mark Epstein remains unconvinced by these allegations.
“I think you could argue that I knew Jeff better than anybody, and some of these stories seem so far fetched,” he said. He also refuted the presence of an extensive camera system in Jeffrey’s New York house, acknowledging only basic security cameras and denying knowledge of any hidden surveillance devices.
Despite the rumors, no evidence of such tapes has surfaced, and neither Clinton nor Trump has faced charges related to Epstein. Documents from Epstein-related lawsuits recently released mention Clinton at least 73 times and Trump four times. Both men are known to have associated with Epstein and flown on his private jet dubbed the Lolita Express.
Recalling his own experiences, Mark Epstein mentioned flying with Donald Trump and his brother, describing it as a normal flight without any inappropriate incidents. He also acknowledged his brother’s penchant for gossip, sharing amusing or interesting stories but emphasized his reluctance to divulge these anecdotes publicly.
Mark Epstein, who stated he received no inheritance from Jeffrey’s estate, also contested the official ruling of his brother’s death as a suicide.
“I’m not here to defend him. What he did was wrong. But that’s not my concern. My concern is that my brother was murdered,” he said.
