One of the enduring mysteries about Epstein is where his money came from in recent years, after his longtime benefactor, Les Wexner, cut ties.

Three sources tell @nytimes that Leon Black’s companies sent many millions of dollars to Epstein’s Virgin Islands company after 2013.
The money flows were identified by @DeutscheBank, which was Epstein’s banker for 5+ years. The bank shared the info with law enforcement.

Prosecutors are seeking records from Black's @apolloglobal, from companies that manage his fortune, and those that he used to buy artwork.
Black has spent the past year trying to distance himself from Epstein, but he has refused to provide basic details about the extent of their yearslong relationship. The subpoenas from the Virgin Islands' attorney general could be a big step in discovering what actually happened.
