Virgin Islands attorney general fired after suing JPMorgan Chase for allegedly facilitating Epstein's sex trafficking

According to a spokesman for the governor, the decision was due to the lack of precision in the reports of the lawsuit.

Denise George, was relieved of her duties as attorney general of the Virgin Islands, just days after filing a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase alleging that the bank aided and abetted Jeffrey Epstein in his human trafficking ring.

Albert Bryan Jr., governor of the Virgin Islands, announced the dismissal in a statement but did not provide further details on the reasons behind the decision. However, Richard Motta Jr., spokesman for the governor, claimed that the relief was taken because the reports George filed in the lawsuit were "not entirely accurate."

The former attorney general spent four years in her role as a civil servant and had already led a case against Epstein's estate concerning sex trafficking. George was able to make a settlement with Epstein's heirs for more than $105 million on behalf of the government.

However, George was relieved of her duties after filing a 30-page lawsuit against the banking giant, in which she alleged that the bank "facilitated, sustained, and concealed" the human trafficking ring.

"JP Morgan turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s Islands'financial footprint, and because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank," the lawsuit reads.

The suit also highlights that the banking decisions were "defended and approved" by senior JP Morgan executives such as the former CEO of its asset management and investment banking division.

George further alleged that the bank concealed "wire and cash transactions that raised suspicion" of Epstein's criminal human trafficking network.

It is important to note that the suit also claims that human trafficking was the core business of the accounts held by the sexual predator at JPMorgan.

Biden traveled to the islands

After the news of the firing broke, some social media users have wondered if the fact that President Joe Biden traveled to the Virgin Islands and was there right at the time of the attorney general's firing was just a coincidence.

The president chose this destination to spend Christmas and New Year with his family. However, some people suggest that the head of state may have had another intention for choosing the islands for the vacation.
