Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin (D-IL) blocked Senator Martha Blackburn’s (R-TN) request to release Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs.
“This is a sad day in the history of the prestigious Judiciary Committee and further underscores the Left’s two tiers of justice crusade. Senate Democrats have long been trying to undermine the Supreme Court and Justice Clarence Thomas, but want to ignore Justice Sotomayor allegedly using her taxpayer-funded staff to coordinate speaking engagements in exchange for selling and promoting thousands of her books,” Blackburn said in a statement. “They also don’t want to have a conversation about the estate of Jeffrey Epstein to find out the names of every person who participated in Jeffrey Epstein’s human trafficking ring.”
Blackburn tweeted that Senator Durbin “BLOCKED my request to subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs. What are Democrats trying to hide?”

Fox News host Jesse Watters asked, “Why can’t we see who was on his jet? Why can’t we see who was on his island?”
“Who is Dick Durbin protecting?”
Earlier this month, Blackburn announced that she issued a subpoena for Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Blackburn said, “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.”
“Given the numerous allegations of human trafficking and sexual abuse surrounding Mr. Epstein, I think it is very important that we identify everybody that was on that plane, and how many trips they took on that plane, and the destinations to which they arrived,” she explained.
