Former MIT Official, Now At Brown, Speaks Out About Epstein Scandal

 A fundraising official at Brown University is breaking his public silence about involvement in a scandal related to Jeffrey Epstein. Peter Cohen was placed on leave last year after it was reported that the MIT Media Lab, where he previously worked, had concealed donations from Epstein after Epstein had pleaded guilty to soliciting sex from a minor. In an email to The Providence Journal, Cohen points to a new MIT-commissioned investigation and says it demonstrates that he and others were following instructions of senior university administrators in dealing with Epstein's donations from before he started working there.
