In a recent episode of his “Verdict” podcast, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas criticized Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin of Illinois for his refusal to subpoena the flight logs of Jeffrey Epstein, convicted child sex predator. Durbin had falsely claimed that no one wanted to subpoena the logs, prompting Cruz to condemn the statement.
Cruz accused Durbin and his colleagues of using subpoenas as a means to harass the Supreme Court and target Justice Clarence Thomas. He asserted that the Democrats despise Justice Thomas and that the subpoenas were part of their ongoing efforts to delegitimize the Supreme Court.
To counter this, Cruz and several Republicans proposed different amendments. They intended to force a vote on their amendments if the Democrats insisted on voting on the subpoenas. One such amendment, put forward by Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, called for subpoenaing Epstein’s estate for the flight logs, particularly those of the infamous “Lolita Express” private jet that allegedly transported mostly Democrat politicians to Epstein’s private island.
Cruz emphasized that subpoenaing Epstein’s flight records would quickly resolve any questions regarding the involvement of politicians in Epstein’s illegal activities. He argued that if there were politicians, regardless of their party affiliation, who were on that plane and engaged in sexually assaulting and molesting children, the public deserved to know their identities.
Expressing his frustration, Cruz pointed out the Democrats seemed to be panicking and speculated on the reasons behind their fear. He suggested that Durbin might have connections to individuals on the flight logs or that Democrats simply feared the potential consequences of bringing the issue to a vote. Nonetheless, Cruz challenged Durbin to prove him wrong by allowing a vote and issuing the subpoena.
The issue of subpoenaing Epstein’s flight logs remains contentious, with Cruz and other Republicans urging transparency and accountability, while Democrats, including Durbin, seem reluctant to address the matter. As the debate continues, the public awaits a resolution that will shed light on the extent of Epstein’s connections and the involvement of politicians in his disturbing activities.
