In just a matter of days, hundreds of names associated with the notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein will be released to the public, an unveiling that puts member of Congress at risk of blackmail, one lawmaker claimed.
Congressman Tim Burchett (R-TN), speaking on The Benny Johnson Show, confirmed that he knows of colleagues who are facing threats to block the release of further information about Epstein. Asked by Johnson whether members of members of Congress have been “compromised” during the fight to release Epstein’s flight logs, Rep. Burchett was unequivocal.
“I believe so. One hundred percent, one hundred percent,” he said.
The Tennessee Republican compared the fight over Epstein’s associates to a previous scuffle he had with the intelligence community over the reporting of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs). After introducing an amendment to ensure UAP reports are made available to Congress, he was surprised to see it suddenly disappear from the agenda.
“I was told by the Whip, I said, ‘What happened to my amendment?’ and he said, ‘It was killed by the intelligence community.’ And I said, ‘You mean the Intelligence Committee?’ and he said, ‘No, the intelligence community.’ It was not even brought up, and these are unelected bureaucrats that have that much control,” he added.
“We’ve gotta start electing people with guts in both parties.”
Pressed further on what is preventing his work with U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) from being successful in the release of Epstein’s logs, Rep. Burchett claims the Deep State forces of Washington have put so many members of Congress in compromising situations that those same unelected individuals can control their votes.
“You’ve got powerful people, and they write the big checks… They hate this country, they hate what we’re about, but they love their portfolios and they love their money more than they do anything else, and they protect it. They protect the people that do that. And by doing so, they’ll honeypot,” said Burchett, referencing the tradecraft scenario of putting politicians in compromising situations.
“This is how it works: You’re out of the country, out of town.. and some, whatever you’re into—comes up to you, they’re very attractive and laughing at your jokes. Next thing you know, you’re in the hotel room with them naked. You’re getting ready to make a key vote, and some well dressed person comes up and whispers in your ear, ‘Hey man, there’s tapes out on you, and you really ought not to be voting for this thing.'”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has killed any effort to release Epstein’s flight logs, though Democrats won’t be able to prevent the release of more than 170 names connected to the deceased pedophile. Among the names expected to be released include former U.S. presidents and some of the world’s most powerful people including Bill Gates and other heavy-hitting philanthropic donors.
