New documents, including a private calendar, belonging to convicted pedophile and child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein were obtained by the Wall Street Journal. The documents show plans for Epstein to meet with several prominent people after he was jailed on charges of solicitation in 2008.

People mentioned in the report include now-Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director William Burns, Bard College president Leon Botstein, Obama White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, and famed professor Noam Chomsky.

Burns, who has been the director of the CIA since 2021, had three meetings with Epstein in 2014 when he was the Deputy Secretary of State in the Obama administration.

Ruemmler was a White House counsel under President Obama and had dozens of meetings with Epstein after her time at the White House, with Epstein planning to have Ruemmler join him on a trip to Paris in 2015 and a trip to his private island in 2017.

The final two prominent people in Epstein’s private calendar were Bolstein and Chomsky. Botstein invited Epstein, who brought a group of young female guests, to the Bard College campus. Chomsky, a professor, author, and political activist, was scheduled to fly with Epstein to have dinner at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse in 2015.

Each of the meetings occurred after Epstein served an extraordinarily lax and lenient prison term in 2008 and 2009 in Florida for a sex crime involving a teenage girl after which he was registered as a sex offender.

The Wall Street Journal could not confirm that every scheduled meeting took place or the purpose for each meeting, but they were found in Epstein’s private calendar.


The WSJ reported that most of the people contacted because their names were in Epstein’s private calendar, “told the Journal they visited Epstein for reasons related to his wealth and connections. Several said they thought he had served his time and had rehabilitated himself. Botstein said he was trying to get Epstein to donate to his school. Chomsky said he and Epstein discussed political and academic topics.”

Arguably the most prominent name on the list is the man who has served as Biden’s “spy chief” since March 2021, William Burns. According to Epstein’s calendar, Burns met with the convicted sex offender on three different occasions in 2014. However, the CIA is now claiming that its head “did not know anything about” the convicted sex offender and well-known child trafficker with whom he met at least three times.

CIA spokeswoman Tammy Kupperman Thorp said in a comment to Fox News:

Director Burns recalls being introduced by a mutual friend in Washington, DC, and then met with him once briefly in New York City, about a decade ago as the Director was preparing to leave government service. The Director did not know anything about him, other than he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector. The Director does not recall any further contact, including receiving a ride to the airport. They had no relationship.

Epstein was charged and arrested again in 2019 on federal sex trafficking charges. Epstein allegedly hanged himself in his cell on August 19, 2019, and therefore cannot corroborate the meetings or anything else that happened between him and many prominent people tied to him.
