Skip to comments.Epstein scandal explodes in Israel as ties to former prime minister under scrutiny
Posted on 07/14/2019 7:29:14 AM PDT by springwater13
Jeffrey Epsteins arrest is reverberating in Israel, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing Likud party are calling for a criminal probe into former prime minister Ehud Baraks personal and business ties with the accused sex trafficker, Israeli media is reporting.
Barak, 77, served as prime minister from 1999 to 2001. This month he formed a new party to run for prime minister against Netanyahu, who called for new elections in September. Once political allies, Barak and Netanyahu have been sparring on social media, with Netanyahu producing a video raising Baraks relationship to the multimillionaire New York financier, and Ohio billionaire Les Wexner, who has given money to Barak, the Times of Israel reported.
Barak was a close friend and business partner with Epstein for years. Now some of those business partnerships are being scrutinized amid questions about Baraks own source of wealth. The Times reported Saturday that Barak is exploring whether to sever business ties with Epstein, 66, who was charged last week with sex trafficking underage girls.
In 2015, Barak formed a limited partnership company in Israel to invest in a high-tech startup called Reporty, now named Carbyne., which develops video streaming and geolocation software for emergency services, the Times reported. A large part of the investment money was supplied by Epstein.
Barak also received $2.5 million from the Wexner Foundation in 2004 for research, which has never been fully explained, Haaretz reported. Epstein was a member of that foundation.
Speaking on Israel TVs Meet the Press, Saturday, Barak stated he had no idea that Epsteins charges related to molesting underage girls and defended his business relationship with Epstein.

“Barak also received $2.5 million from the Wexner Foundation in 2004 for research, which has never been fully explained”
Well, now’s the time to explain it, Barak...
Ehud Barack did not know Epstein was a sex offender?
I guess Netanyahu will win another election!
Don't underestimate President Trump. He knows things...
↓ YouTube is hiding this video and pushing everything it has that accuses Trump to the top! ↓
President Trump knows something bad about Bill Clinton.
It’s a big ocean.
Hush money as an enticement?
A large part of the investment money was supplied by sex predator Epstein.
Barak also received $2.5 million from the Wexner Foundation in 2004 for research, which has never been fully explained.
Epstein was a member of that foundation.
Good post, FRiend.
This short clip tells me that President Trump not only knew about the Clintons, but planned to do something about it. He says “got a lot of problems coming up, IMO, with Jeffrey Epstein and the little island.” At the time he said this, Epstein was not in the news. Then the scandal starts in New York. It will end up with the little island and the ranch in NM, and will take in a lot of evil people around the world.
"Hey, Epstein. It's an emergency. I need a video stream of a 14 year old blond virgin for my friends."
He's still not sure?? Geez...
The Joe Biden of Israel. Too old, too ineffective, and too poor a judge of character and everything else. And a leftard.
Well well well... now we know why they went after Benji so hard...
Barak and Barack.... Never trust a Bar-rock
Epstein was clearly running some kind of blackmail ring for somebody. I’m sure he has plenty of dirt on all kinds of influential people.
Epstein: Absolutely. It'll cost you though.
CIA: Money is no object. Carry on as if you were normal.
Epstein: You got it, baby!
That might touch on some Republican connections to this horror...
OANN off Roku is like $5 a month and lets you drop cable for Fox News.
We have a really good antenna that we get over 75 channels through, as well. We do pay for Amazon Prime, though, but we have everything we would need for so much less than the cable packages we once had.
Starve the beast (MSM)!
I’d sure like to know about your antenna setup. I have been trying to figure out how my Mom can watch TV in a rural area without the insane cable fees.
