Nikki Haley Backer Associated with Jeffrey Epstein

Billionaire Reid Hoffman, a backer of Nikki Haley’s campaign, has been discovered to have been associated with Jeffrey Epstein.

According to Representative Lance Gooden (R-TX), Reid Hoffman “donated $250,000 to Nikki Haley’s super pac.”

“Hoffman has also helped fund the frivolous E Jean Carroll Lawsuit against President Trump,” he added.

Hoffman visited Epstein’s private island in 2014.

He was also scheduled to stay in Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse.

Hoffman explained to the Wall Street Journal that he visited Epstein’s island for an MIT fundraising trip.

“It gnaws at me that, by lending my association, I helped his reputation, and thus delayed justice for his survivors,” he told the Journal in an email. “While I relied on MIT’s endorsement, ultimately I made the mistake, and I am sorry for my personal misjudgment.”

MIT’s Media Lab Director, Joi Ito, said, “Reid attended a few fundraising events at my request, including one trip to Little St. James, after I confirmed to Reid that Mr. Epstein had been an approved donor target for MIT in accordance with university rules and regulations.”

Ito resigned from his position following Epstein’s 2019 arrest.
