As part of the deluge of damaging stories published about Bill Gates following the announcement of his high profile divorce from Melinda Gates, a new report indicates Gates became friends with the now-deceased billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in a bid to win a Nobel Peace Prize.
As National File reported last year, Bill Gates remained friends with Epstein even after the pedophile was convicted in Florida, having met with the disgraced pedophile numerous times, and reported flying on Epstein’s infamous jet, dubbed The Lolita Express. Now, a report from The Daily Beast claims that Gates told board members at The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that his friendship with Epstein was just motivated by the hope that Epstein would facilitate a Nobel Peace Prize for the Microsoft founder.
“Gates hoped the well-connected pervert could help him secure the Nobel Peace Prize,” the outlet reported, attributing the information to a “former Gates Foundation employee”. The Daily Beast continues, “‘This person said members of the foundation’s communications team were alerted to Gates’ relationship with Epstein and were told it “was a maneuver to try to get himself a Nobel Peace Prize.’ They said the tech mogul had even kept some employees on call on prize day in years past just in case he was awarded the distinction.”
“He [Gates] thought that Jeffrey would be able to help him, that he would know the right people, or some kind of way to massage things, so he could get the Nobel Peace Prize, which is what Bill wants more than anything else in the world,” The Daily Beast reports, now identifying the former employee as a “staffer”.
Epstein was convicted and imprisoned in 2008, and these meetings – and Gates’ alleged flight on The Lolita Express – occurred in 2013, long after the public knew about Epstein’s conviction and love of underage girls. Previously, one of Gates’ representatives told the media that “Epstein never provided tax, estate or services of any kind to Bill Gates.” The Lolita Express flight reportedly boarded by Gates took off in New Jersey before landing in Palm Beach, Florida.
Gates is far from the first major public figure to admit to an inconvenient friendship with Epstein. Last year, Cindy McCain, the widow of deceased U.S. Sen. John McCain, claimed that “we all knew” what Epstein “was doing” with underage girls. “Epstein was hiding in plain sight. We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing. But we had no one that was, you know, um, uh, legal aspect that would go after him,” Cindy McCain stated.
