Bill Gates: I met with Jeffrey Epstein because 'he knows a lot of rich people'

Bill Gates, the billionaire founder of Microsoft, confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that he had meetings with convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein because the enigmatic financier had connections to wealthy people.

“I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him. I didn’t go to New Mexico or Florida or Palm Beach or any of that,” Gates told the newspaper in an interview published Tuesday. “There were people around him who were saying, hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows a lot of rich people.”

Gates’ meetings with Epstein, who died of an apparent suicide last month while awaiting a trial on new sex crimes charges, were first reported by CNBC. Gates met with Epstein more than once, including in 2013 while he was the chairman of Microsoft, people with direct knowledge of the matter said.

Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting an underage prostitute and was listed in the national sex offender registry. Before his death, federal prosecutors in New York accused him of overseeing sex trafficking networks of underage girls in Florida and New York.

In 2013, Gates was worth an estimated $67 billion, according to Forbes, making him the second wealthiest person in the world. His wealth has increased to over $100 billion as of September, according to the magazine’s tally.

In the interview with the Journal, Gates said he never had meetings with Epstein at which women were present.

“Every meeting where I was with him were meetings with men,” Gates said. “I was never at any parties or anything like that. He never donated any money to anything that I know about.”

Bill and his wife, Melinda, run the wealthiest charitable foundation in the world, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Its assets in 2018 were worth almost $48 billion, according to documents released by the charity. Its assets were worth more than $41 billion in 2013.

Gates did not immediately respond to questions, submitted through a foundation representative, about why he would need Epstein’s help connecting with wealthy people and whether it is typical for his business meetings to include no women.

Epstein’s meetings with Gates followed an extensive lobbying effort by Epstein, people close to Gates previously told CNBC.

Following the 2013 meeting between the two men, Epstein arranged for a $2 million donation from Gates to the MIT Media Lab, according to a report in The New Yorker. A spokesperson for Gates said in a statement provided to the Journal that “any claim that Epstein directed any programmatic or personal grantmaking for Bill Gates is completely false.”

The bug in Zoom that could've let hackers spy on video meetings tapped into people's deepest fears about tech

Passersby walk under a surveillance camera as part of face ID technology test at Berlin Suedkreuz station on Aug. 3, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.

This week, consumers learned about a flaw in the Zoom meeting app that could theoretically allow an attacker to gain access to a video chat or meeting if one of the participants is using a Mac computer.

Researcher Jonathan Leitschuh reported the flaw on July 8 in a Medium post. Zoom quickly fixed the problem with a patch, and said the problem had not affected any users. Apple later pushed a “silent update ” to Mac operating systems to prevent the exploit from being used on machines that hadn’t yet applied the Zoom fix.

It was the kind of interesting discovery that bug bounty hunters report every day. It’s the kind of bug companies find themselves fixing everyday.

But from a user perspective, the issue created a great deal more buzz than those everyday problems normally do.

Part of reason was because Zoom is one of the hottest business tech stories of the year, with a stock price that’s risen more than 150% since its April IPO. Zoom’s stock saw virtually no impact after the flaw revelations.

But the flap also comes after months of revelations on how home assistant products from Amazon and Google use employees to monitor conversations in your home, and years of reports of hackers accessing video cameras on laptops and other computers. Even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg tapes over his laptop camera, according to an Instagram photo he posted in 2016.

In other words, the Zoom bug shows how consumers are conflicted and nervous over the newest class of products which offer new kinds of convenience in new places — but new potential for exposure, too.

Trump’s chief of protocol pulled off the job ahead of G-20

Trump's chief of protocol pulled off the job ahead of G-20

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks before signing an executive order aimed at requiring hospitals to be more transparent about prices before charging patients for healthcare services, at the White House in Washington, U.S. June 24, 2019.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration’s chief of protocol in the State Department has been pulled off the job just ahead of the G-20 summit amid an investigation into allegations of discrimination and harassment, U.S. officials said. He is not expected to return to his job.

Two U.S. officials said that employees in the chief of protocol’s office had been informed that Ambassador Sean Lawler had been suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the investigation. A third official said that Lawler had told the State Department’s leadership he planned to submit his resignation to President Donald Trump after the G-20 summit, which starts Friday in Osaka, Japan.

Lawler, a political appointee, was nominated by Trump to the position in September 2017 and given the rank of ambassador. He was confirmed by the Senate in November 2017.

Mary-Kate Fisher, the assistant chief of protocol, will attend the summit instead, the officials said.

The State Department declined to comment. An employee who answered the phone Tuesday in Lawler’s office said he was out of the office. Lawler declined to comment on the record.

The U.S. officials who told NBC News about Lawler’s situation declined to elaborate on the specifics of the allegations, other than to say that numerous employees in his office had resigned in protest of his management and behavior.

A senior position in U.S. diplomacy, the chief of protocol is responsible for ensuring diplomatic etiquette and overseeing the production of high-level diplomatic meetings, such as bilateral meetings with the U.S. president, vice president and secretary of state. As a result, the chief of protocol often attends important meetings overseas and interacts close-up with foreign leaders, including kings, queens and heads of state.

The suspension comes just as Trump prepares to fly to Osaka. The summit brings together leaders from 20 nations and is a Super Bowl of sorts for diplomats who work on protocol, which involves managing ceremonial details to help create “an environment for successful diplomacy,” according to the State Department’s website.

A regular participant in Trump’s foreign visits, Lawler was sworn in at the end of 2017, but has been in the U.S. government for almost three decades, according to his official State Department biography. His bio says he served more than 20 years in the Navy and also has worked in the White House’s National Security Council.

'I have not said a word': John Kerry rejects Pompeo's criticism over meetings with Iran officials

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told CNBC on Thursday that he has not sought to influence Iranian foreign policy since leaving the State Department.

Speaking to CNBC’s Hadley Gamble in Normandy, France on Thursday, Kerry was asked to respond to recent criticism from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Last month, Pompeo described Kerry’s reported conversations with his former Iranian counterpart as “inappropriate.”

“I haven’t talked to the Iranians subsequently about any issue. I’ve only talked with one Iranian once between the decision that was made to pull out,” said Kerry, the unsuccessful 2004 Democratic presidential candidate who became the top U.S. diplomat during President Barack Obama’s second term.

“I saw the foreign minister briefly for a few minutes at the Munich Security Conference. But, I have not said a word subsequently to what they ought to do or not do. It’s not my business.”

When asked to clarify whether there had been any back-channeling, Kerry replied: “No, I haven’t had any back-channel on that issue since the decision was made to move out. And before that it was not a back-channel.”

Kerry said it has been common practice for previous secretaries of state, U.S. senators and many others to continue having public discussions with people “as a matter of being well informed.”

China trade deal looking more and more like a ‘sell the news’ opportunity for stock investors

China trade deal looking more and more like a 'sell the news' opportunity for stock investors

If tariffs are retained, some strategists say that would be a negative for the market since uncertainty would remain, and so would the impact on businesses.

“Removing the uncertainty of escalating tariffs should be enough to stimulate capex, but a cut to existing tariffs should provide a significant boost to US capex,” Clifton notes.

“As such, a China deal is the most important ‘stimulus’ Trump could provide in 2019,” he wrote.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer last week said the provisions to protect intellectual property are a big part of the working document. The plan is that bilateral meetings would take place on any disputes, and if the talks don’t resolve them, the U.S. could impose tariffs.

“By the time you get through all these meetings and Chinese denials, you already did harm to America’s businesses and workers. This is the U.S. going back to the Obama and Bush era,” said Derek Scissors, resident scholar at American Enterprise Institute.”We’re in a situation where we’re not enforcing our law now, and we’re setting up a mechanism which is very similar to past mechanisms where we failed to enforce our laws.”

Bianco said even if the deal does come up short in some investors’ minds, it would be a positive. He said he expects the S&P to reach 2,950 by year end, and if there was a strong deal with China, removing all tariffs, it could move to 3,000.

But he expects a deal that could retain some tariffs.

“It’s not just about trade. It’s about trade being a policy tool to get China to the negotiating table, on the topics of trade and many other things,” he said. Bianco said trade is an opening to other important issues, like the South China Sea.

“They’ve taken a lot of risks with the economy to make incremental gains, but this is going in the right direction. Overall it’s a pretty good outcome,” Bianco said.

Mnuchin hopes for 'productive' US-China trade meetings in Beijing

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday he hopes for “productive” trade meetings in China this week, as the two countries seek to hammer out an agreement amid a festering dispute that has seen both level tariffs at each other.

U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of imports from China are scheduled to rise to 25 percent from 10 percent if the two sides cannot reach a deal by a March 1 deadline, increasing pain and costs in sectors from consumer electronics to agriculture.

Mnuchin, asked by reporters as he left his Beijing hotel what his hopes were for the visit, said “productive meetings”. He did not elaborate.

Mnuchin, along with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, arrived in the Chinese capital on Tuesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he could let the deadline for a trade agreement “slide for a little while,” but that he would prefer not to and expects to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping to close the deal at some point.

Trump’s advisers have previously described March 1 as a “hard deadline,” but Trump told reporters for the first time that a delay was now possible.

China trade negotiations to be led by Lighthizer with Navarro, Mnuchin

“The two sides will also discuss China’s pledge to purchase a substantial amount of goods and services from the United States,” the White House said.

Among those in the delegation, Navarro is especially known for his hard-line views on trade. Last month, the Dow Jones Industrial Average clinched what was its worst weekly performance in 10 years the day Navarro said “China is trying to steal our future.”

The announcement comes after Chinese representatives met with the World Trade Organization on Monday, to begin the process of legally challenging United States tariffs on China’s exports. China said the U.S. tariffs are “a blatant breach” of WTO policy. A U.S. representative at the meeting said China’s claim was an “unfounded despite” and countered that it is China to blame for “threatening the overall viability of the WTO system.”

Read the full statement from the Press Secretary here:

Today, President Donald J. Trump announced that the United States will welcome an official delegation from China for a series of meetings from January 30 to 31, 2019, to discuss the trade relationship between the two countries. For the United States, the trade discussions will be led by United States Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer and include Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, Assistant to the President for Economic Policy Larry Kudlow, and Assistant to the President for Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro. The United States principals will be accompanied by senior officials from the White House, USTR, and the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, State, and the Treasury. The meetings are a part of the agreement reached by President Trump and President Xi Jinping in Buenos Aires on December 1, 2018, to engage in 90 days of negotiations with a view to achieving needed structural changes in China that affect trade between the United States and China. The two sides will also discuss China’s pledge to purchase a substantial amount of goods and services from the United States. Under this agreement, an official United States delegation traveled to Beijing for trade meetings from January 7 to 9, 2019. The meetings will take place in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building at the White House.

Brexit row erupts as opposition party rejects Theresa May's offer for talks

The British government has insisted that cross-party talks to find a consensus on Theresa May’s Brexit plans have been “constructive,” despite the refusal of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to engage in discussions with the prime minister unless she categorically rules out the possibility of the U.K. leaving the European Union without a deal.

As leader of the largest opposition party in the Westminster Parliament, Corbyn has issued an order instructing his own MPs (Members of Parliament) that they should not hold meetings with Conservative opponents unless that specific precondition is satisfied. But a Downing Street spokesperson told reporters Thursday night that further government meetings with Labour lawmakers were expected Friday.

After her narrow victory in a parliamentary confidence vote late Wednesday, May had said she would be prepared to engage with opposition party leaders in a “constructive” spirit, to find a way forward after her Brexit proposals were crushingly rejected earlier in the week.

But she has responded to Corbyn’s demand with a letter of her own, in which she insists that it was not in the government’s power to rule out “no deal.” She reiterated that such a move was “impossible” unless Parliament had voted in favor of a specific deal, or unless the government were to revoke Article 50 of Europe’s Lisbon Treaty.

She wrote that a revocation of that treaty clause, which governs a member state’s potential exit process from the EU, would mean overturning the result of the 2016 referendum, and this would be “wrong.”
