Bill Gates’ Past: Investigated by Microsoft for Affair with Employee, Good Friends with Epstein

Published

Bill Gates

Earlier this month Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates and wife Melinda Gates released a statement announcing their divorce. Since then, emerging information as to the cause of the divorce continues to pour out, and boy are we learning a lot about Mr. Gates.

Amongst the most shocking is the Microsoft co-founder’s relationship with the infamous and vile sexual predator, Jeffrey Epstein. The Daily Beast reports Gates went to gatherings at Epstein’s $77 million New York townhouse to “escape from what he told Epstein was a ‘toxic’ marriage, a topic both men found humorous, a person who attended the meetings told The Daily Beast.”

The friendship reportedly brought the two together dozens of times from 2011-2014 and Gates apparently gave Epstein a little friendly advice as well. He reportedly “encouraged Epstein to rehabilitate his image in the media following his 2008 guilty plea for soliciting a minor for prostitution, and discussed Epstein becoming involved with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.”

There were also affairs. Microsoft Spokesman Frank Shaw said, “Microsoft received a concern in the latter half of 2019 that Bill Gates sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000” and “ a committee of the Board reviewed the concern, aided by an outside law firm to conduct a thorough investigation. Throughout the investigation, Microsoft provided extensive support to the employee who raised the concern.”

A spokeswoman for Mr. Gates said, “there was an affair almost 20 years ago which ended amicably” and that Mr. Gates’ “decision to transition off the board was in no way related to this matter. In fact, he had expressed an interest in spending more time on his philanthropy starting several years earlier.”

On Sunday, The New York Times reported Gates had developed “a reputation for questionable conduct in work-related settings.” People with “direct knowledge of his behavior” said Gates made “overtures” to women who worked for him at Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Report: Texas Cop Missed Chance To Shoot Gunman At Uvalde Elementary School

Published

Police

A Uvalde police officer armed with a rifle requested to shoot the gunman who committed the mass shooting outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, before the gunman entered the elementary school, a report revealed on Wednesday.

Some of the 21 victims killed in the shooting at Robb Elementary School, including 19 children, likely “could have been saved,” according to the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT).

The 26-page report reveals that “Prior to the suspect’s entry into the building at 11:33:00, according to statements, a Uvalde Police Officer on scene at the crash site observed the suspect carrying a rifle outside the west hall entry. The officer, armed with a rifle, asked his supervisor for permission to shoot the suspect. However, the supervisor either did not hear or responded too late. The officer turned to get confirmation from his supervisor and when he turned back to address the suspect, he had entered the west hallway unabated.”

The report additionally notes that the officer would have been justified in using deadly force to stop the gunman without the supervisor’s confirmation.

“The officer was justified in using deadly force to stop the attacker. Texas Penal Code § 9.32, DEADLY FORCE IN DEFENSE OF PERSON states, an individual is justified in using deadly force when the individual reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary to prevent the commission of murder (amongst other crimes),” the report states. “In this instance, the UPD officer would have heard gunshots and/or reports of gunshots and observed an individual approaching the school building armed with a rifle. A reasonable officer would conclude in this case, based upon the totality of the circumstances, that use of deadly force was warranted.”

“Furthermore, the UPD officer was approximately 148 yards from the west hall exterior door,” it continues. “One-hundred and forty-eight yards is well within the effective range of an AR-15 platform. The officer did comment that he was concerned that if he missed his shot, the rounds could have penetrated the school and injured students. We also note that current State of Texas standards for patrol rifle qualifications do not require officers to fire their rifles from more than 100 yards away from the target. It is, therefore, possible that the officer had never fired his rifle at a target that was that far away.”

“Ultimately, the decision to use deadly force always lies with the officer who will use the force. If the officer was not confident that he could both hit his target and of his backdrop if he missed, he should not have fired,” the report notes.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.
