EXCLUSIVE: Wexner Foundation Cuts Ties with Harvard – But There is More…

After Hamas invaded Israel, killed hundreds and took female hostages, Harvard groups blamed these crimes on Israel.  Now big names are dropping their support for the university.  But there is more…

Yahoo reports on the exit on the Wexner Foundation from supporting the historic university.

A nonprofit founded by former Victoria’s Secret billionaire Leslie Wexner and his wife Abigail is breaking off ties with Harvard University, alleging the school has been “tiptoeing” over Hamas’ terror attacks against Israel.

The Wexner Foundation’s decision to end its relationship and financial support for Harvard is the latest fallout amid criticism from donors who were alarmed by the university’s initial response to the attacks and to an anti-Israel statement issued by student groups.

The end of Wexner’s support comes as college campuses across the United States are in turmoil over responses from students, professors and administrations to Hamas’ attack on Israel and the ensuing war. Big donors have pulled money from a number of high-profile universities. Students have protested and some have been publicly shamed for their views. A handful of faculty have been lambasted by students and administrations for sharing controversial views. And university leaders are clinging onto diminishing support as some fight for survival.

“We are stunned and sickened by the dismal failure of Harvard’s leadership to take a clear and unequivocal stand against the barbaric murders of innocent Israeli civilians,” the Wexner Foundation’s leaders wrote in a Monday letter to the Harvard board of overseers.

The Wexners, whose fortune is estimated to be $6 billion, according to Forbes, specifically cite the statement released by a coalition of student groups that blamed solely Israel for the terror attacks by Hamas.

But this is only the end of the story.  Yahoo left out a major story within this story.

Back in 2019 Jeffrey Epstein was in the news.  He was arrested and in jail in New York City.  Epstein was charged with child trafficking underaged women to be used by some of the most famous people in the world.  The Clintons were involved in this story.  Bill was with Epstein multiple times and he was reportedly with underaged women but nothing ever happened to him.

Another close acquaintance of Epstein was Leslie Wexner of the Wexner Foundation.  This was all reported at The Gateway Pundit in July of 2019.

EXCLUSIVE: It’s Not Just the Clintons – Epstein has Questionable Ties with Former Israeli Prime Minister EHUD BARAK and the WEXNER Foundation!

In this piece, not only was Wexner tied to Epstein but so was the former Head of Israel, Ehud Barak.  As a matter of fact, in addition to being tied to Epstein financially, he also was seen entering Epstein’s home in New York City.

 

In 2019 I shared:

An Internet sleuth provided us some additional questionable ties related to Epstein and Barak. For the past 15 years there are numerous entities operating in both Ohio and NY related to the Wexner Foundation.  The ties to Epstein seem to be limited to the early years and fairly straight forward.

For tax years 2001 through 2006, the tax returns for the Foundation list Jeffrey Epstein as a Trustee and the person with whom the corporate books are in the possession of (at the same address of the Foundation in Ohio).  Additionally, for 2001 the Wexner Foundation only received one contribution of $9,588,560 and that contribution came from an entity named ARTS INTEREST TRUST with an address of C/O Jeffrey Epstein in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.

In all other years of 2002-2015, the vast majority (if not all) of the Wexner Foundation revenue came from contributions from an entity named THE LESLIE H. WEXNER CHARITABLE FUND (EIN#: 31-1318013).  For years of 2001-2005, Epstein was listed as a Trustee of this organization as well.  In 2006, this entity changed it’s name to THE WEXNER FAMILY CHARITABLE FUND.

Another interesting discovery is that the Wexner Foundation paid “consulting fees” to Ehud Barak of $1 million in 2004 and $800,000 in 2006.  In 2005, The Leslie H Wexner Charitable Fund paid Ehud Barak $505,000 in “consulting fees”.

It looks like one of Harvard’s connections to Jeffrey Epstein just decided to stop funding Harvard because of the university’s apparent antisemitic leanings.  What a mess.
