(RepublicanDaily.org) – A recent report indicates that the late financier and convicted human trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein blackmailed Microsoft mogul Bill Gates, Daily Caller reported. The blackmail was reportedly over an alleged affair with the Russian bridge player Mila Antonova.
Jeffrey Epstein appeared poised to reveal an affair that Gates had with Antonova in 2010, The Wall Street Journal reported. Reportedly the financier was attempting to set up a philanthropic fund that he intended to solicit Gates for as a “primary donor.” Knowledge of the affair had appeared to be “weaponized” Business Insider reported on May 21. The “threatening email” Epstein sent to Gates was in 2017, two years before Epstein’s death on August 10, 2019.
Gates’ affair with Antonova reportedly occurred when the pair met through tournaments for the card game bridge, Business Insider reported.
At the time, Antonova was in her 20s. At the time, Gates was still married to his wife Melinda Gates, whom he divorced in 2021, Business Insider reported. Bill and Melinda Gates were married in 1994 and were married for 27 years before separating. Despite their failed marriage, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation they began together remained intact.
Antonova went on to meet Epstein in 2013, at the time when she was trying to secure funding for Bridge Planet, a business concept she’d created to teach people about her beloved bridge game, Business Insider reported. Antonova has since denounced Epstein, and reportedly told The Wall Street Journal that at the time she approached him for funding, she thought he was a “helpful businessman,” Business Insider reported.
Likewise, Gates’ spokesperson reportedly told The Wall Street Journal that Gates only met with Epstein for “philanthropic purposes” and that, when Epstein failed “repeatedly” to further engage Gates, he attempted to use his relationship with Antonova to threaten him.
Gates has had “inappropriate” affairs and a “checkered love life” since the early 2000s, and divorced his wife in 2021 amid reports of his alleged “ties to Epstein,” The Daily Mail UK wrote.
