Attorney General FIRED After Filing Lawsuit About Epstein’s Private Island

On Monday, the governor of the United States Virgin Islands confirmed he terminated his attorney general who, just days earlier, filed a lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase alleging it facilitated Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of girls and women.

The Virgin Islands Consortium reported that Attorney General Denise George was fired on Saturday, following four years in Governor Albert Bryan’s administration. Sources told the news outlet that Bryan had already been frustrated with George  — but the Epstein lawsuit was the catalyst for her firing.

Bloomberg News reported that George filed the lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase on December 27 without notifying Bryan. In the suit, she accused the banker of facilitating abuse by overlooking anti-money laundering protocol which would’ve detected Epstein’s illegal actions.

At the time of his death, the billionaire sex offender owned Little Saint Island, a 72-acre island in the Virgin Islands. The island reportedly had five buildings on it, including guest houses and cabanas.

According to The Virgin Islands Consortium, George’s lawsuit also asserted that JP Morgan Chase ignored sex trafficking operations that were transpiring on Epstein’s private island.

The Virgin Islands Daily News reported that George had filed a lawsuit against Epstein’s estate five months following his 2019 death in a New York correctional facility. She previously mentioned her intentions to assist Epstein’s victims in the Virgin Islands.

Government House Communications Director Richard Motta Jr. said Carol Thomas-Jacobs was appointed to fulfill George’s role. Bryan issued a statement regarding George’s termination, but it did not provide a reason.
