GOP Senator Calls for Epstein Flight Logs to be Released to 'Identify Anyone Who Participated'

Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn is actively pushing for the Senate Judiciary Committee to issue a subpoena for the flight logs of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, Fox News Digital reports.

The objective is to identify potential individuals involved in Epstein’s notorious “horrific conduct.” Speaking during a Thursday hearing focused on Supreme Court ethics probes, Blackburn expressed concern over the numerous allegations of human trafficking and abuse surrounding Epstein. She called for the subpoena to Epstein’s estate, emphasizing the need to identify everyone who may have participated in the alleged misconduct.

During the same hearing, Blackburn criticized Democratic efforts within the committee to target Supreme Court justices, urging a focus on what she deemed “real issues.” Despite resistance from Blackburn and her Republican colleagues, Committee Chairman Dick Durbin, D-Ill., decided to halt the authorization of Supreme Court subpoenas at that time. However, Blackburn intends to bring up the Epstein subpoena again in the next committee hearing, specifically addressing the Supreme Court probe subpoenas.

Epstein’s private plane, often referred to as “The Lolita Express,” is infamous for allegedly transporting underage girls to his private island in the Caribbean and other residences worldwide. Notable individuals, including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Kevin Spacey, and others, were reported passengers on the plane at various times. It’s important to note that, as of now, there is no evidence suggesting any criminal activity by those who flew on Epstein’s plane.

Jeffrey Epstein faced charges of sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy in 2019 and pleaded not guilty before being found dead in his Manhattan jail cell the following month. The death was officially ruled as a suicide. Prior to these charges, Epstein had pleaded guilty in Florida to charges related to soliciting and procuring a person under age 18 for prostitution.
