The Dirty Money Threesome: Jay Clayton, Jeffrey Epstein, and Leon Black


Before revealing the most recent developments in the Hinman/Simpson Thacher/Chinese Communist Party story, we want to return our focus to the man behind it all: Jay Clayton.

We already mentioned that Clayton has worked with numerous Epstein affiliates and that his family is intimately involved in a “corporate formation company” that helps bad actors dodge taxes and launder money. We also discussed how Clayton has taken over Apollo Global Capital Management, a $414 billion asset management firm, after founder Leon Black left his public facing positions over ties to billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.


Clayton has tried to excuse these connections as just part of doing business on Wall Street. However, his personal dealings with Leon Black are too deliberate to explain away.

Beyond socializing within the same circles, Black trusted Clayton to take over the asset management firm he built from the ground up. No one leaves close to half a trillion dollars in the hands of someone they only ran into a few times at high-end parties. Only the closest of confidants could be trusted to fill the role.


Unfortunately, the full extent of Clayton’s connections to Black and Epstein will probably never be uncovered. Billionaires can afford to make most things disappear. However, given what he has not been able to hide despite his wealth and legal connections, it is a safe bet that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg, which is damning on its own.


With all that he has gotten away with, no one should be surprised that Clayton is less and less shy about cashing in on his connections. Despite his volatile regulatory actions of cryptocurrencies while at the SEC, Jay Clayton has shamelessly joined One River Digital Asset Management, where he helpsinstitutional clients navigate and profit from the opaque crypto regulatory environment he created.

Just when you think his actions cannot get any more brazen, he doubles down.


At the end of this week, Fireblocks, a multi-million dollar crypto startup that aims to offer financial institutions an all-in-one platform to run a digital asset business, announced that they had brought on good old Jay Clayton to their advisory board.


Yet again, the former Chairman of the SEC shows us why he created such a convoluted web of semi-regulation around the crypto space: so he could turn himself into an asset and cash in on the nonsensical gauntlet he created around cryptocurrency, making sure that only he and his closest cronies with the deepest pockets can get through.


Just this week, Clayton confessed his affection for crypto and blockchain, saying, “I’ve always loved the potential efficiencies of this technology.” He has finally said the quiet part out loud. The problem was never crypto, but the innovators behind it and their potential to disrupt the systems that keep him and his Wall Street buddies rich. Now, Jay Clayton manages hundreds of millions of dollars worth of crypto currencies that are direct competitors to XRP, which he deliberately tanked. It was never about principle or securities law. Only a quick buck.


While Clayton might have the legal savvy and money to avoid criminal charges, someone like him had no business running the agency responsible for preventing financial corruption. Every single decision he made at the SEC is now suspicious; none more so than his eleventh hour move to kill XRP.


Still not sure how this ties back to Hinman and the CCP?


In the next few drops, everything will come together.
