More on Ehud Barak's ties with criminal businessman Jeffrey Epstein

The Times of Israel's got more on Barak's connections with currently arrested sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, noting that Barak was working in business deals with him at least until 4 years ago:
American financier Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender now embroiled in a sex-trafficking case involving minors, was an active business partner with former prime minister Ehud Barak as late as 2015.

Barak formed a limited partnership company in Israel in 2015, called Sum (E.B.) 2015, to invest in a high-tech startup then called Reporty, now named Carbyne, which developed video streaming and geolocation software for emergency services. A large part of the money used by Sum to buy Reporty stock was supplied by Epstein, Haaretz reported Thursday.

The report appears to raise new questions about the connection between Barak and the disgraced Epstein — a relationship that has become a favorite election talking point for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after Barak reentered the political fray last month, announcing a new party formed for the purpose of unseating Netanyahu.

[...] On Sunday, the prime minister tweeted a screenshot of a Hebrew-language report about Epstein’s most recent arrest and his ties to Barak some 15 years ago. The report said that Epstein had been a trustee of the Wexner Foundation when it gave Barak $1 million for unspecified consulting services in 2004.

[...] The video charges that Barak received a payment of $2.3 million from the Wexner Foundation and has not disclosed what the payment was for beyond saying in an interview that he provides “consulting and research services.”

It claimed Barak never conducted the research.
Yet Barak refuses to be transparent about any of this, or explain why he associated with such a repellent man despite his prior run-ins with the law. If the Labor party forms any partnership with Barak in the upcoming election, they'll be spelling serious trouble for themselves. Presumably, they're distancing themselves from him now, and hopefully so. With ties like those, this is precisely why Barak is no longer a viable candidate for politics.
