The US Virgin Islands Attorney General who filed a lawsuit against JP Morgan over the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking scandal has been fired.
Denise George last week filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase for alleging the bank profited from Epstein’s sex trafficking scheme.
The lawsuit also accused JPMorgan of “turning a blind eye” to suspicious activity that occurred from Epstein’s account.
In the lawsuit, U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George stated “Over more than a decade, JPMorgan (JPM) clearly knew it was not complying with federal regulations in regard to Epstein-related accounts as evidenced by its too-little too-late efforts after Epstein was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges.”
Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. has fired V.I. Attorney General Denise George, and appointed Carol Thomas-Jacobs to the role in an acting capacity, Government House Communications Director Richard Motta Jr. said Sunday.
