Looking for BillG to be tossed under the wheels of the bus in 3... 2... 1...
From the London Daily Mail:

Bill Gates 'turned a blind eye to Jeffrey Epstein's reputation because he thought he could get him a Nobel Peace Prize' - as it's revealed they both attended a 2013 meeting at the home of ex Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman

    • Gates and Epstein went to the Strasbourg home of Thorbjorn Jagland in 2013
    • Jagland said Gates asked for the meeting to learn more about the Council of Europe and its work in healthcare
    • They arrived together, Jagland said, but Epstein did not take part in the talks
    • He however introduced Gates to IPI - a think tank he has since given millions to
    • Jagland, at the time, was the chairman of Norway's Nobel Committee
    • Details of the meeting emerged as former Gates staffers claimed he thought Epstein could help him get the Nobel Peace Prize
    • Epstein had already been convicted of soliciting a child prostitute when Gates met him
    • The staffers say they knew the association could harm Bill and Melinda's reputation but they ignored it
    • Gates, through a spokesman, denies ever seeking the Nobel Peace Prize
    • He said he has never attended 'parties' with Epstein and only ever used him to fundraise for worthy philanthropic causes

Bill Gates attended a 2013 meeting in Strasbourg with Jeffrey Epstein at the home of the then chairman of Norway's Nobel Committee, it has been claimed, amid comments from ex-staffers who say the Microsoft founder turned a blind eye to Epstein's reputation because he thought he could help him get the Nobel Peace Prize.

According to Norwegian newspaper DNMagasinet, Epstein and Gates arrived together at the meeting in March 2013. It took place in Strasborug, at the home of former Norwegian Prime Minister Thorbjørn Jagland and Gates asked for it.

Jagland was the chairman of Norway's Nobel Committee at the time.

The boy has a bit of a problem. Not that smart, just driven and lucky.
