JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon to be deposed over bank’s Jeffrey Epstein ties

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon will be forced to give sworn testimony over his bank’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein as part of two lawsuits filed against the Wall Street giant — one by the US Virgin Islands and another by an alleged victim of the dead pedophile.

Dimon will be deposed as part of a lawsuit alleging that JPMorgan profited from Epstein’s sex trafficking activities, according to Bloomberg News.

JPMorgan Chase has denied the allegations.

Epstein continued banking with JPMorgan Chase despite his 2008 conviction for procuring a child for prostitution in Florida.

Earlier this month, US District Judge Jed Rakoff ordered JPMorgan Chase to turn over documents linked to Dimon from 2015 to 2019 — the period after the bank dropped Epstein as a client.

Attorneys for the US Virgin Islands say Dimon is “a likely source of relevant and unique information” about why the bank kept servicing Epstein.

JPMorgan Chase has fought attempts by lawyers for the US Virgin Islands to force him to give sworn testimony about the bank's links to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The US Virgin Islands also wants information about Epstein’s alleged referrals of wealthy clients.

The US Virgin Islands is seeking damages from JPMorgan for allegedly aiding in Epstein’s sex trafficking by keeping him as a client, and missing red flags about his misconduct on Little St. James, a private island he owned.

Epstein had been a JPMorgan client from 2000 to 2013. He killed himself in a Manhattan jail cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges.

Jeffrey Epstein continued to be serviced by JPMorgan Chase despite his 2008 conviction for procuring a child for prostitution.

The Post has sought comment from JPMorgan.

Attorneys for the bank argued there was no need to have Dimon deposed.

Jes Staley, who worked as a senior banker for JPMorgan, was deposed for two days last week.

Staley, the disgraced ex-CEO of Barclays who also headed JPMorgan’s private banking division when Epstein was a client, has been sued by JPMorgan, which says he should be held liable for any damages awarded against the bank.

The US Virgin Islands, where Epstein kept a home, has filed suit against JPMorgan, alleging that it profited from his sex trafficking.

JPMorgan is seeking to claw back more than $80 million in wages that were paid to Staley during his tenure with the Wall Street giant.

Staley is alleged to have sexually assaulted one of Jeffrey Epstein’s purported victims, according to court papers.

An attorney for Staley has denied the allegations.
