Elon Musk learned an important lesson about staying relevant in America: never stop commenting on everything.
Over the weekend, the SpaceX founder took to Twitter to call out the federal government, writing: “Only thing more remarkable than DOJ not leaking the list is that no one in the media cares. Doesn’t that seem odd?”
In the tweet, he also attached a photo that read ‘Things I will never see in my life’, showing a dinosaur, dragon, unicorn and then a fourth image, which said, ‘The Epstein/Maxwell list’.
Shortly after posting the tweet, one person called the Tesla boss out, sharing a photo of Musk and Maxwell at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, writing: “Found one.”
To which Musk responded: “Ah yes, Maxwell photobombing me at a VanityFair Oscars party – you should (ask) them why they invited her.
“The same people who push this photo say nothing about prominent people who actually went to his island a dozen times. Also very strange…”
Daily Mail reports that a ‘black book’ of Epstein’s was first released in 2015 and published by new site Gawkers, which disclosed the names of influential and powerful figures who had a relationship with the paedophile.
Some of the names mentioned in the book include former Presidents Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, John Kerry and Woody Allen.
However, these people have not been charged or associated with the crimes of Epstein and Maxwell.
Last year, during Maxwell’s trial, in which she was found guilty of child sex trafficking, the address book filled with her and Epstein’s clients also revealed some of the names of their victims, according to the New York Times.
However, despite the verdict, the book was not made public after the defence and prosecution came to an agreement.
Uni Lad reports that Musk’s tweets come just before the former British socialite is set to appear in court to receive her sentencing on June 28.
In January 2022, Maxwell formally requested a new trial after it was revealed that one of the jurors had been molested as a child despite saying they hadn’t in a pretrial screening, according to ABC News.
However, in April, the judge denied Maxwell’s request, upholding her conviction but her lawyers still vowed to appeal against the verdict.
