On Tuesday Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) called for the establishment of a special committee to investigate the connections between Jeffrey Epstein, public officials, and government intelligence agencies. In an interview with Benny Johnson, the congresswoman affirmed her determination to expose the full extent of Epstein’s network of influential contacts.
“The American people deserve to know the truth,” said Greene, during her frank discussion with the host. “I’m for the full client list being completely revealed. The things that went on at his very famous island need to be revealed.”
The statements come at a time when Epstein is back in the headlines, with recent news alleging tech mogul Bill Gates was blackmailed by Epstein over alleged affairs. MTG did not mince words during the interview, highlighting the hypocrisy she perceives in accusations that Republicans are pro-Russia when the Democrats themselves are allegedly entangled with Russian interests.
A report from The Wall Street Journal on Sunday suggested that Epstein leveraged knowledge of an affair between Gates and a Russian bridge player, Mila Antonova, to blackmail Gates. Gates’ spokeswoman refuted the allegations, stating that any interactions between Gates and Epstein were purely philanthropic and that Epstein’s blackmail attempts were unsuccessful.
The report also shed light on Epstein’s extensive network of connections, including meetings with prominent political figures and celebrities. Epstein’s calendar even suggested he had meetings with the current CIA director and former White House counsel. These details, along with Epstein’s alleged claims of working for multiple governments and his involvement in illegal activities, have fueled speculations that Epstein may have been a spy or a blackmail agent
“I think they need to know about former presidents and what they did on these islands,” said MTG, referring to Epstein’s notorious private island where many of his alleged crimes took place. “We’ve seen the flight logs. We have a right to know.”
The congresswoman also called into question the frequent visits to Epstein’s island by former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton, as well as their connections with Epstein. She further criticized Bill Gates for his dealings with a Russian woman linked to Epstein.
MTG’s call to action echoes a growing demand among the American public for a comprehensive investigation into Epstein’s dealings. “Americans deserve to know and they need to stop hiding the information,” she stressed. “There’s a lot that Americans deserve to know.”
The congresswoman ended the interview with a pledge to work diligently to make her call for a full investigation into Epstein’s connections a reality.”I’m all for it and would work diligently to make that happen,” Greene assured. It remains to be seen whether her demands will be met, but her determination to shine a light on the dark corners of Epstein’s connections is a step towards the transparency and accountability that many are calling for.
