The U.S. Virgin Islands has subpoenaed Elon Musk in connection to a lawsuit between the U.S. territory and JPMorgan Chase.
Following the arrest and subsequent court findings related to Jeffry Epstein, numerous connecting businesses have been taken to court, not the least of which is JPMorgan Chase. Currently, the banking giant has been taken to court by the U.S. Virgin Islands, in which the territory alleges that the bank violated sex trafficking laws by operating with Jeffery Epstein. In pursuit of this case, the U.S. Virgin Islands have issued subpoenas to many notable figures, including Elon Musk, who has since railed against the court demands.
The news of the subpoenas relating to Elon Musk was first reported by CNBC, noting that the court is demanding Musk deliver any and all documents showing communication involving him, JPMorgan, Epstien, and “all documents reflecting or regarding Epstein’s involvement in human trafficking and/or his procurement of girls or women for consensual sex.”
The U.S. Virgin Islands allege Jeffery Epstein “may have referred or attempted to refer” Elon Musk as a client to JPMorgan. Though it remains unclear how this ties into the broader case against the bank, which the territory alleges enabled and benefited from Jeffery Epstien’s sex trafficking operations.
Arguing against this move by the U.S. territory, Elon Musk published a scathing rebuke on Twitter earlier this morning.
This is idiotic on so many levels:
1. That cretin never advised me on anything whatsoever.
2. The notion that I would need or listen to financial advice from a dumb crook is absurd.
3. JPM let Tesla down ten years ago, despite having Tesla’s global commercial banking…

It should be noted that the U.S. Virgin Islands has also subpoenaed both Google co-founders, a prior Disney executive, numerous top Wall Street and real estate investors, and many more.
Besides Elon Musk and the other notable subpoena receivers, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Diamond has also been called to court and will be forced to testify later this month. Thus far, the U.S. bank has thoroughly denied wrongdoing in its work with Epstien, despite its prior relationship with the human trafficker.
