An elite group within one of America’s most prestigious universities is embroiled in the ongoing Jeffrey Epstein scandal, and its director just quit — here’s what’s going on

One of America's most prestigious schools, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, accepted millions in donations either directly from or through connections to Jeffrey Epstein.

According to a report in The New Yorker, at least $7.5 million in donations were delivered to MIT by Epstein from major donors like Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and investor Leon Black acting on Epstein's guidance.

Moreover, the leadership at MIT's elite Media Lab group was seemingly aware of the problems with accepting money from Epstein, a convicted sex offender, and sought to conceal that connection. In the wake of this news, MIT Media Lab director Joichi Ito resigned and MIT president L. Rafael Reif promised "an immediate, thorough and independent investigation."

Here's everything we know about the Jeffrey Epstein donation scandal currently ripping through one of America's most prestigious education institutions.
