After Epstein was arrested in 2019, Gates was scrutinized for his relationship with the sex offender, according to The Daily Beast.
A technology associate who attended some of the same events as Epstein commented on Gates’ ties with him.
“If you ask Bill Gates, he’ll say, ‘Oh I had absolutely no idea he wasn’t up to anything of the highest moral character.’ But I seriously doubted Epstein’s moral character,” the person, who asked to remain anonymous, said, according to The Daily Beast.
