‘It’s never been more clear — Epstein was an intelligence asset’: Jesse Watters connects dots to CIA

The full extent of Jeffrey Epstein’s client list remains undisclosed, but the latest report listing appointments on his private calendar left Fox News host Jesse Watters declaring one thing has “never been more clear” before teasing he could “name names.”

On Sunday, The Wall Street Journal reported on a “trove of documents” from the notorious sex offender that included scheduled meetings with the likes of Professor Noam Chomsky and Bard College President Leon Botstein. Those meetings, which were scheduled after Epstein’s conviction, were not nearly as telling as the ones planned with now-CIA director William Burns and Kathryn Ruemmler, former White House counsel for President Barack Obama.

“It’s never been more clear — Epstein was an intelligence asset. Not only was he working for the CIA — Israeli intelligence, maybe even Russia intelligence,” Watters suggested Monday on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”

“So was the American government allowing an asset to traffic and molest teenage girls all over the world for intelligence? Were we allowing Epstein to commit crimes against children for blackmail material?” he continued.

Watters had recapped the previously reported details of the calendar that included Burns, then Obama’s deputy secretary of state, and Ruemmler, now an attorney for Goldman Sachs, the latter whom he “even tried to set up…to work for Bill Gates.”

The documents further told how Burns had even visited Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse “where,” as Watters said, “Epstein had sex with underage girls and, you know, where he filmed other men having sex with underage girls. And William Burns went there and was then promoted to the director of the CIA.”

“Well, we asked the CIA director, William Burns, you know, why were you meeting with a convicted pedophile at his disgusting townhouse? And the CIA director said this: ‘The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector. They had no relationship,'” the Fox News host said, reading off the CIA’s statement to the Wall Street Journal.

“So Obama’s State Department official couldn’t have asked anybody else in the entire country for help with a job in finance? He could have called any CEO, any hedge fund manager, any banking director, but he meets with Jeffrey Epstein,” Watters wondered, “a guy that doesn’t even really have a real business, a guy that doesn’t even have a website, a guy that, as far as we know, only had one client, the CEO of Victoria’s Secret.”

He then went on to conclude that these connections clarified why details of Epstein’s client list have remained covered up as well as the mysterious circumstances of his reported suicide, and that the aforementioned sex tapes were potentially being used as blackmail against people in positions of power and influence.

“So when someone does something that doesn’t make any sense, maybe it’s because they don’t want to be doing what they’re doing. Maybe it’s because someone’s telling them what to do and threatening to release the tapes if they don’t,” the host offered. “I could think of a few people whose actions I can’t explain, but it wouldn’t be fair of me to name names.”

“Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested. So, why do we still know nothing about him? Well, we’re finding out tonight some answers,” Watters said.
