The president of MIT has finally admitted that he worked to cover up a massive $800,000 donation made by deceased billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. As The Daily Mail reports:
The president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology admitted concealing donations from Jeffrey Epstein and that he wrote him a thank you-letter in 2012, four years after the pedophile pleaded guilty to sex crimes.
President Leo Rafael Reif called the message to Epstein a ‘standard acknowledgment letter’ in a statement to the university community posted on its website.
‘I apparently signed this letter on August 16, 2012, about six weeks into my presidency. Although I do not recall it, it does bear my signature,’ he said.
The donation came four years after the well-connected Epstein, who committed suicide as he awaited trial on sex-trafficking charges, was convicted in Florida on one count of paying young girls for sexual massages at his Palm Beach mansion.
It is still unclear what exactly Epstein may have expected to get in return from the massive donation to the school.
