Virgin Islands prosecutor who sued JP Morgan over Epstein ties is fired; the timing doesn’t go unnoticed

Talk about a coincidence, the top prosecutor in the U.S. Virgins Islands was fired just as President Biden and his family were set to return to Washington, D.C. after spending the Christmas holidays at a beachfront villa in St. Croix that belongs to a billionaire Democrat donor.

Attorney General Denise George lost her job days after suing JPMorgan Chase for allegedly turning a “blind eye to the sex trafficking operations that went on on Epstein’s private island in the USVI, Little St. James,” The Virgin Islands Consortium reported.

George filed the federal lawsuit in Manhattan last week, claiming the largest bank in the United States “facilitated convicted felon Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of women and girls, alleging that the bank should have known about Epstein’s illegal activity and as part of its anti-money laundering procedures, should have reported their client to authorities,” the newspaper further noted.

Governor Albert Bryan, a Democrat, announced the firing in a brief statement late Sunday.

“I relieved Denise George of her duties as attorney general this weekend. I thank her for her service to the people of the Territory during the past four years as Attorney General and wish her the best in her future endeavors. Assistant Attorney General Carol Thomas-Jacobs will serve as Acting Attorney General,” the island’s governor said in the release.

As for the tie-in to Epstein, Bryan mentioned no reason but The Consortium cited a source to say he was increasingly frustrated with George, in part for suing the major investment bank without making him aware — the paper said this “was the final straw.”

Independent journalist Breanna Morello took to Twitter to take note of not only the “facts” involved but the timing of the incident.

“Joe Biden spent the holiday weekend in the Virgin Islands & left today,” the reporter tweeted. “Soon after leaving, the Virgin Islands Attorney General was fired. She had just filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan for their alleged connection to Jeffrey Epstein. These are the facts, not a conspiracy.”

The story prompted plenty of “conspiracy theories” at a time when far too many conspiracies are proving to be true… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
