NEW: Jeffrey Epstein's post-hearing bail memo offers a "comprehensive forensic accounting" of his finances, with this remarkable understatement:

"[A]s apparent from Mr. Epstein’s initial financial disclosure, Mr. Epstein’s finances are fairly complex."

As for the passport, Epstein's attorneys say it was Austrian, expired 32 years ago, and, they claim, was used to protect himself from anti-Semitic attacks.

The government's post-argument briefing also contains a revelation that one of the people Epstein paid after @jkbjournalist's "Perversion of Justice" series was "named and featured prominently in the Herald."

Prosecutors filed the fake passport under seal and said the safe had $70,000 in cash plus "48 loose diamond stones, ranging in size from approximately 1 carat to 2.38 carats, as well as a large diamond ring."

Also, unless I'm missing something, the attorney who signed Epstein's brief appears to have misspelled the name of his prominent co-counsel, Martin Weinberg.
