Jeffrey Epstein managed to move money out of the country earlier this year from accounts he had at Deutsche Bank – despite the company severing all ties with the pedophile. 

The New York Times reports that even baking officials failed to realize the possible financial crimes being committed by Epstein until after the fact, believing that the company had closed out all his accounts late last year. 

Deutsche Bank now wants to make sure that none of the money being moved by Epstein was used to fund or in any way support the sex trafficking of underage females.

Deutsche executives struggled to shutter his accounts in the wake of Julie Brown’s bombastic expose last November due to the fact that its private-banking division had opened several dozen accounts for Epstein and his businesses. 

Months later, one Deutsche Bank employee noted: ‘We’re still trying to get our arms around it.’
