A swirling controversy around the disclosure of Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs has led another high-profile Democrat to come forward and say that he was in the company of the disgraced, deceased pedophile multiple times while flying high in the skies.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the black sheep of his family and Democrat-turned-independent candidate for president, admitted to Fox News host Jesse Watters that he twice rode on Epstein’s infamous private jet which later became known as the shuttle ferrying underage girls to his private island in the Caribbean.
“I was on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet two times,” RFK said. “I was on it in 1993 and I was on it, and I went to Florida with my wife and two children to visit my mom over Easter. My wife had some kind of relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell and they offered us a ride to Palm Beach, so I went then and on another occasion.”
Following media attention that renewed interest in his sexual perversions, Epstein was arrested alongside Maxwell in 2019. Prosecutors allege Maxwell groomed young women and brought them to Epstein for abuse. Epstein was found dead in his cell that year under suspicious circumstances, and in 2022 Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in a maximum-security prison.
“This was 30 years ago, so it was in 1993, it was before anybody knew about Jeffrey Epstein’s, you know, his nefarious issues, and I agree with you that all of this information should be released and we should get real answers on what happened to Jeffrey Epstein and any of the high-level political people that he was involved with. It should be absolutely transparent, so I don’t see why any of those records would have any redactions in them. Why would we be hiding those from the American public?” Kennedy asked rhetorically.
Last month, Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) filed a motion to secure the publication of Epstein’s flight logs which would have shown the names of friends and associates who flew with him throughout his decades as a socialite and philanthropist to Democrats and progressive causes. However, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dick Durbin (D-IL), blocked that request. Some in question, including Elon Musk, have denied their connection to Epstein.
Fallout from the Epstein scandal continues to this day. Recent revelations have shown that he had a hand in crafting sex offender laws for the Virgin Islands, the site of many of his crimes, and forced mega-bank JP Morgan to defend its knowledge about his criminal activity while representing him as a high-profile client.
A federal investigation into the circumstances around his death found no foul play and cited poor oversight by jail officials which allowed Epstein to commit suicide. However, Tucker Carlson previously uncovered that jail officials curiously deleted 911 records from that night.
