Elon Musk Subpoenaed by U.S. Virgin Islands in Jeffrey Epstein Lawsuit
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has been subpoenaed by the U.S. Virgin Islands in connection with a lawsuit involving Jeffrey Epstein. The lawsuit alleges that Epstein used his private island, Little St. James, as part of a sex trafficking ring.
What is the Epstein Lawsuit?
The lawsuit filed by the Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands accuses Jeffrey Epstein of running a sex trafficking ring from his private island, Little St. James. The lawsuit seeks to seize Epstein’s assets, including the island, to compensate his victims. The lawsuit also targets Epstein’s alleged accomplices, including Ghislaine Maxwell, who is still at large.
Why is Elon Musk Subpoenaed?
Elon Musk is one of the names that appeared on the flight logs of Epstein’s private jet. The logs show that Musk flew on the jet at least once in 2010, from New Jersey to California. The subpoena seeks to determine the nature of Musk’s relationship with Epstein and uncover any potential evidence related to the lawsuit.
What We Know About the Relationship Between Musk and Epstein
To date, there is little information available about the nature of the relationship between Musk and Epstein. Musk has stated in interviews that he had limited interaction with Epstein and terminated their relationship after learning of Epstein’s convictions for sex crimes. Nevertheless, the subpoenas raise questions about whether Musk may have information that is relevant to the lawsuit.
What Happens Next?
It is unclear how Musk will respond to the subpoena. The U.S. Virgin Islands is not the first entity to request information from Musk in connection to Epstein—last year, a lawyer for Epstein’s victims sent a letter to Musk asking him to preserve any relevant documents, but there is no indication that Musk provided any such documents.
