That number was nearly $ 1 million more than the $ 800,000 for which the school publicly apologized.

Epstein served as a relationship between the university and rich donors and asked millions of dollars in donations.

The documents show that the university was aware of the history of Epstein, where he pleaded guilty for accusing prostitution and purchasing minors for prostitution, but nevertheless accepted money from him and took conscious steps to ensure that his name was not associated with the donations.

In an email from October 2014, Ito wrote in an internal email: & # 39; This is a $ 2 million gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein & # 39 ;.

A colleague replied: & # 39; To include gifts, we will not mention Jeffrey & # 39; s name as the impetus for this gift. & # 39;

On Saturday, just a day after the report was released, Joi Ito resigned.

In his resignation he wrote: & # 39; After having paid much attention in recent days and weeks, I think it is best that I resign as director of the media lab and as professor and employee of the Institute, effective immediately. & # 39;
