Charge Dropped Against Shareholder Activist Detained After Invoking Epstein

Berkshire Hathaway security reportedly cut short a shareholder while speaking during the annual shareholder meeting. The shareholder was also arrested by Omaha police.

Activist investor Peter Flaherty was stopped after seeming to imply chairman Warren Buffet was linked through Bill Gates to Jeffrey Epstein. The prosecutor assigned Flaherty’s case reportedly declined prosecution.

The Daily Wire further reported:

A trespassing charge against a conservative activist investor who was arrested at Berkshire Hathaway’s recent shareholder meeting after bringing up dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been dropped.

The Daily Wire has learned that a prosecutor in Omaha, Nebraska, informed Peter Flaherty, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), last week that he reviewed the case and declined prosecution.

While the prosecutor could not immediately be reached for comment, Flaherty said in a phone call on Tuesday that it was “the weakest case imaginable” and is “glad” the charge is no more.

At the annual meeting in Omaha earlier this month, Flaherty had been recognized to speak in support of a proposal to require the roles of CEO and chairman be held by two different people. Both of those titles are held by Warren Buffett, and Flaherty argued the Omaha-based company would be less identified with Buffett’s political activities if the chair was independent.

After getting into how Buffett donated billions of dollars to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates’ foundation, as well as efforts supporting Critical Race Theory and gender ideology, Flaherty said a Berkshire official approached to tell him to stay on topic. Buffett gave him the go-ahead to continue, and that’s when Flaherty mentioned Gates’ ties to Epstein.

“We know how much Bill Gates cares about children,” Flaherty said. “He met and traveled with Jeffrey Epstein many times after Epstein was convicted of sex crimes.” Video posted to social media shows the audience erupted in boos and some whistling when Flaherty brought up Epstein.

Flaherty continued to speak about the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation when he says two security officials removed him from the venue and Omaha police arrested him. Arrest documents show Flaherty had been charged with refusing to comply with a request to leave. He was released on a $250 bond and was expected back in court on May 22 until the case was dropped.

The Daily Wire left a voicemail with Berkshire Hathaway seeking comment, but never got a reply.
