Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. revealed during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” that he had traveled on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet in the past.
Kennedy informed host Jesse Watters that he had been on Epstein’s jet twice in 1993 with his wife and children while visiting his mother over Easter. His admission places him among the high-profile individuals associated with Epstein’s controversial flights.
The flight logs for Epstein’s plane, famously known as the “Lolita Express,” have been a subject of intrigue since Epstein’s suspicious death in 2019 while in federal custody awaiting trial on human trafficking charges. Although officially ruled a suicide, Epstein’s death has raised suspicions due to his influential connections and the nature of his charges.
Notable figures like former President Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew of the UK, and lawyer Alan Dershowitz have been confirmed to have flown on Epstein’s planes, based on limited flight logs and sworn testimonies.
.@SenatorDurbin BLOCKED my request to subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs.
Kennedy emphasized that his trips on the plane were for family travel and expressed his belief that the full flight logs should be disclosed to the public. He stated, “All of the information should be open to the public. It should be absolutely transparent. Why would we be hiding that from the American public?”
Efforts to obtain congressional oversight regarding the flight records have faced obstacles. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently had her request for a Senate subpoena of the flight logs blocked by Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL). Blackburn had urged the disclosure of the flight logs maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration, expressing her desire to identify all those involved in Epstein’s activities.
The controversy surrounding Epstein’s estate and the individuals connected to his alleged human trafficking ring remains a contentious issue, with demands for transparency and accountability persisting.
