The Continued Epstein Cover-Up
Senate Democrats block a subpoena to release flight logs for the pedophile’s “Lolita Express.”
What would you do if you were fairly certain you wouldn’t get caught?
That seems to be a calculus that Jeffrey Epstein used when accruing his network of the rich and famous while preying on hundreds of young girls. On top of being a predator and human trafficker, he was a blackmailer and a conman. He was a man entirely without moral scruples. But his activities were not conducted in a vacuum.
Even after his “suicide” — which many speculate was actually a hit job — his flight logs haven’t been released. Epstein’s black book was released but heavily redacted. The names and numbers in that book really only indicate how well-connected he was, which isn’t necessarily incriminating. Yet this lack of transparency and obvious silencing by those in power are yet more indicators that the rot Epstein wrought is part of a much bigger ring of predatory behavior on the part of elites in power.
Earlier this year, our Brian Mark Weber wrote, “Those who knew Epstein are pretending they didn’t, and those who want answers are being silenced.” Weber was noting a circumstance where Peter Flaherty, chair of the National Legal and Policy Center, was trying to block Warren Buffett from becoming the next CEO and board chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. Flaherty’s reason was that Buffett had questionable connections with Epstein. Flaherty was arrested after the shareholder meeting seemingly as a direct consequence of that reference.
Flaherty is a small fish compared to many of the other public figures who have dared to bring up Epstein as a dubious connection or attempted to garner information on who his accomplices were.
Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn recently attempted to subpoena the flight logs from Epstein’s estate. Of particular interest are the flight logs from the most infamous of his private jets, a Boeing 727 nicknamed the “Lolita Express.” (“Lolita” is reference to the book with that name about a pedophile lusting after and sexually grooming a 14-year-old girl.)
At the time of Blackburn’s attempt, Democrats in the Senate Judiciary Committee were attempting to subpoena Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas in their continued campaign to undermine the authority and legitimacy of the highest court in the land. To which Blackburn countered: “Since we’re in the business of issuing subpoenas now, here are a few more that I’ve filed. A subpoena to Jeffrey Epstein’s estate to provide the flight logs for his private plane.” The hearing ended abruptly after that.
Democrats leading the Senate Judiciary Committee later claimed they blocked Blackburn’s subpoena ostensibly because Republicans were filibustering earlier business. This excuse seems pretty hollow in light of all the suppression surrounding the flight logs historically. Even in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, those records were not made public — though there was enough “there” there to garner her a conviction. Maxwell was Epstein’s erstwhile lover and accomplice in his human-trafficking schemes. Besides Epstein, she is so far the only person to face some justice for associated crimes.
Senator Blackburn did not remain silent about the Democrats blocking her efforts to unveil these records that are of intense public interest. She correctly asks the question that is on all of our minds: “What are Democrats trying to hide?”

What are Democrats trying to hide?
Though there may be many a political name revealed on those logs, the more interesting information is how many celebrities and elites would have their names show up as well. Those people are probably the single biggest reason their names have not been made public.
We already know some of the names associated with Epstein because of testimonies from survivors and even one of his former pilots. They are names like the UK’s Prince Andrew, former Presidents Bill Clinton (there is actually a picture of Clinton on Pedophile Island) and Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and most recently Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
RFK Jr., a 2024 presidential hopeful, admitted to Fox News’s Jesse Waters last week that his name would appear on a couple of Epstein’s flight logs. Both times, according to RFK Jr., he had his children with him and was never alone with Epstein.
Like Epstein’s black book, some of the names we already know are merely evidence of Epstein’s cultivation of the rich and famous. But what the American people want to know is just how many of these contacts were involved in his human-trafficking ring and pedophilia.
The fact that these names and flight logs aren’t made available to the public is a perfect example of the two-tiered system of justice that has been cultivated by the elites in power. Their names can only be hidden for so long. Eventually, the truth will come to light.
