Elon Musk took to Twitter Saturday to ask if anyone was bothered by how quiet the “leaking” Justice Department is when it comes to the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
Elon Musk said on Twitter, “Only thing more remarkable than DOJ not leaking the list is that no one in the media cares. Doesn’t that seem odd?”

Maxwell, Epstein’s former assistant and lover, was convicted on December 29, 2021, of recruiting and grooming teenage girls to be sexually abused by Epstein. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 28.
While Maxwell disputed the impartiality of a juror who failed to disclose he was a victim of sexual abuse, a federal judge denied her a retrial.
A journalist, named Adam Davidson, responded to Elon with a thread. He started by saying, “I wrote something provocative about how I know stuff about Jeffrey Epstein and can’t publish it. I’ll do my best to explain and reveal here. It provides, I think, a good lesson in why it is hard to publish stories about bad things done by the rich and powerful.”
I wrote something provocative about how I know stuff about Jeffrey Epstein and can't publish it.
I'll do my best to explain and reveal here. It provides, I think, a good lesson in why it is hard to publish stories about bad things done by the rich and powerful:

He then goes on to say, in the thread:
“1/ First: Just about everything I know has been published somewhere. It’s in books or articles or interviews with victims or revealed depositions.
And, I think, our podcast, Broken, adam.cc/broken went further than many revealing scumbaggery.
2/ But, yes, there are things I believe, with good evidence, to be true that I feel I cannot publish.
These fall into a few categories:
Category 1: Protecting the victims.
We spoke to dozens of Epstein’s victims and dozens of their lawyers.
3/ Many are, simply, terrified and don’t want to talk at all.
Others are willing to rush off the record and will confirm things others said, but beg us not to reveal their names/info.
Others are represented by lawyers who want to win settlements and don’t let them at all.
4/ We chose to respect any victim’s decision.
We had to rely on the very few victims who were willing to talk publicly. This is why @VRSVirginia is so brave. Pretty much every thing she told us was confirmed by others, off the record. But she is rare in being public.
5/ The biggest issue is the victims we never spoke with.
Epstein reportedly raped up to 3 girls a day for years. Most came once or just a few times. Their names are not known by anyone.
That’s thousands of victims who are invisible.
6/ The next circle of sources are the enablers. Over the decades of abuse, Epstein had hundreds of staffers-pilots, house staff, chefs, assistants- the vast majority will never speak or will offer weak denials or will only speak through lawyers.
7/ We covered one of those enablers, Adam Perry Lang, quite well, I thought: he was Epstein’s chef for years and has become a Hollywood celeb chef, best friend of Jimmy Kimmel.
A few of those enablers would confirm details off the record.
8/ Then there is the huge group of people-those who witnessed Epstein and fancy functions. they saw him with teenagers at scientific conferences or sitting on his knee at dinner parties.
There are countless people like this.
A few did talk to us-totally off the record.
9/ Lastly, there are the people who (allegedly) either had sex with children or were around when others were doing so.
They are all rich and powerful and simply deny and refer to their lawyers often with clear insistence that they will sue.
10/ The result of all of this is that for most of the claims, there is one witness willing to go on record. That witness, more often than not, is @VRSVirginia
I have full confidence in her recollections. We spent ~two years checking every thing she said and never found a lie.
11/ But courts and the public are not kind to single-source he-said/she-said cases.
Virginia has already faced down and won against some very powerful people.
But this is an absurd amount of weight to put on one person’s shoulders.
12/ So, I am not protecting Themen who (I feel fairly confident) rated children or watched as others did so. Fuck those guys.
I am honoring their victim’s requests.
Like all of you, I have hoped it would all come out by now. I’m shocked it hasn’t.
13/ But here is what I feel confident in saying:
If someone spent any amount of time with Jeffery Epstein, at a minimum they saw him physically touching girls in provocative ways and rather gleefully showing off his ability to do so.
14/ More than likely, they were offered sex with whatever their preference was (Epsteindid empty, abuse, and traffic women who weren’t underage). And many did have sex with girls or women.
15/ So, ALL the people who spent real time with Epstein were-at best!-witnesses to the almost certain race of children.
And had a high likelihood that they engaged in illegal sex acts.
Courts can presume innocence.
We should all presume guilt.
16/ Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Gates, and Richardson. Ehud Barak. George Mitchell. George Church, Ito-and a lot of others at MIT and Harvard.
There is an enormous likelihood that-at the very best-they spent a lot of time with a man they knew to be raping children.
17/ They saw him with those children. They saw naked photos on his walls and saw many naked children around his pool.
They knew. Yes, of course, many participated. But ALL knew.
I am not able to say the names of people I think participated without betraying the victims.
18/ But these men should not be invited into polite society.
They should not be celebrated on TV shows as experts on Covid or international relations or whatever.”
