Why did Jeffrey Epstein's private jet fly to Riyadh on the eve of the 2016 election? (MBS & Bezos)

Why did Jeffrey Epsteinís private jet fly to Riyadh on the eve of the 2016 election?




Why did Jeffrey Epsteinís private jet fly to Riyadh on the eve of the 2016 election?


*Insider previously reported that Jeffrey Epstein's private jet flew from Paris to somewhere over the Arabian Peninsula on November 7, 2016. The jet returned to Paris 48 hours later.

*Newly located flight data, discovered by the journalist Eric Rosenwald, shows that Epstein's Gulfstream GV-SP landed in Riyadh at King Khalid International, the main airport of the Saudi Arabian capital.

*Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with whom Epstein has claimed to be close friends, was in Riyadh at the same time, holding meetings with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

*Bezos and MBS did not answer questions about whether they met the accused sex trafficker around the same time. Bezos attended at least two dinners with Epstein, in 2004 and 2011.

*The presence of Epstein's jet in Riyadh provides additional evidence of the financier's ties to the Saudi kingdom.

"For about six months, I got a notification every time that his plane was spotted in Plane Finder's system, and I knew it was in Riyadh on Election Day," Rosenwald told Insider. "I didn't know what to do with it."

Epstein's jet was in Riyadh at the same time as Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

There isn't enough information to precisely reconstruct the 48 hours Epstein's jet spent in Riyadh, and Rosenwald's data doesn't show whether Epstein was a passenger on either leg of the flight. Such information likely turned up in a recent subpoena issued to Epstein's pilots, but has not yet been made public. Still, it is reasonable to suppose that Epstein was flying aboard his own private jet.

Two people of note were in Riyadh at roughly the same time.

The first person is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, who at the time served as the kingdom's Minister of Defense and Second Deputy Prime Minister. On November 8, the state-owned Saudi Press Agency reported that bin Salman, also known as MBS, and his father, the Saudi king, bestowed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., with the Order of King Abdulaziz, a civilian award for distinguished service to Saudi Arabia.

The second person is Jeff Bezos, the billionaire co-founder and CEO of Amazon. On November 9, the day Epstein's jet returned to Paris, MBS held an unrelated meeting with Bezos, several Amazon executives, and two Saudi ministers. The Saudi Press Agency said they "discussed fields of cooperation and investment opportunities available according to the Kingdom's Vision 2030," the crown prince's signature economic initiative.

1. Hmmm.

Needs more attention.

48 hour stay for Epstein? Seems lengthy.

3. Making a "delivery" to the Kingdom ?

What do you get when you put a rich guy with a private plane who has a track record of trafficking young women with a country that has an mysoginistic world view and a reputation of abusing young women for pleasure.

Hmmmm

5. Or picking up something to bring back to the campaign?

Like good hard cash? Or maybe gold? Didn't Trump make a remark earlier this week about the Saudis paying in gold?

6. I don't think so

The prince can get anyone he wants in his country anyway, without fear of getting arrested. Perhaps it was the other way around, and the prince was offering a girl to Epstein.

9. This story sounds a lot like

The Michael Cohen Prague-Cell phone ping story that ended up not being true.
