Jeffrey Epstein, the well-known pedophile asked Bill Gates to join him in setting up a multi-billion dollar non-profit with JPMorgan Chase.
When Gates became reluctant, according to sources, Epstein threatened to expose the affair the Microsoft founder had with a twenty-something Russian bridge player, Mila Antonova.
Gates met the young lady in 2010 and Epstein met her three years later in 2013. Epstein paid for her to go into coding school and then asked Gates to reimburse him for the cost.

Wall Street Journal reported:
The Microsoft co-founder met the woman around 2010, when she was in her 20s. Epstein met her in 2013 and later paid for her to attend software coding school. In 2017, Epstein emailed Gates and asked to be reimbursed for the cost of the course, according to the people familiar with the matter.
The email came after the convicted sex offender had struggled and failed to convince Gates to participate in a multibillion-dollar charitable fund that Epstein tried to establish with JPMorgan Chase.
The implication behind the message, according to people who have viewed it, was that Epstein could reveal the affair if Gates didn’t keep up an association between the two men.
“Mr. Gates met with Epstein solely for philanthropic purposes. Having failed repeatedly to draw Mr. Gates beyond these matters, Epstein tried unsuccessfully to leverage a past relationship to threaten Mr. Gates,” said a spokeswoman for Gates.
You may remember how Melinda Gates said that Gates’ association with Epstein was the main reason for her divorce from Bill.
Melinda Gates said:
“I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffery Epstein. I made that clear to him. I also met Jeffery Epstein exactly one time. I wanted to see who this man was and I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.”
“He was abhorrent, evil personified. I had nightmares about it afterward. That’s why my heart breaks for these young women. That’s how I felt, and I am an older woman. He was awful.”
Bill’s decision to continue his friendship with Epstein is one of the main issues that prompted their divorce in May 2021, ending their 27-year marriage, Melinda claimed.
Earlier this year, Sarah Ferguson from ABC Australia confronted Bill Gates about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein during a live television interview.
Ferguson asked the billionaire and co-founder of Microsoft if he regretted the relationship that he “maintained” with Epstein “against Melinda’s advice and wishes.”
“You’re going way back in time, but yeah, I will say it for the over 100th time, yeah, I shouldn’t have had dinners with him,” Gates said.
“Epstein had a way of sexually compromising people. Is that what Melinda was warning you about?” asked Ferguson.
“No, I mean its…(pause) No, I had dinner with him, and that’s all,” Gates responded.
Bill Gates also dismissed any ties between the Gates Foundation and Epstein.
“[And that you regret] the relationship between the foundation and Epstein?” asked Ferguson.
“There never was any relationship of any kind,” Gates responded.
