Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently called for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) to subpoena unredacted flight logs from convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s plane. Blackburn made the demand in a letter to Durbin, insisting that obtaining the Epstein records should be the “first act” of the committee after they reconvene next year.
“The American people need to know who else flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane and may have had a role in the heinous offenses for which he was ultimately convicted,” Blackburn said in a statement.
The flight logs could potentially reveal the identities of key people connected to Epstein, including anyone he may have helped facilitate sex trafficking. Blackburn’s demand comes on the heels of a sweeping exposé from The Miami Herald that showed Epstein had been engaged in a wide-scale sex trafficking operation for decades.
Given the seriousness of the allegations, Blackburn believes it is imperative that the Senate Judiciary Committee take prompt, decisive action to uncover the truth as soon as possible. By ordering the subpoena of the unredacted flight logs, the committee could get closer to identifying any other complicit individuals and hold them accountable.
