Cruz Rips Durbin For Protecting Those Who Flew On Jeffrey Epstein’s Plane By Not Subpoenaing Flight Logs

 Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL) for refusing to subpoena convicted child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs.

Cruz made the remarks during an episode of his “Verdict” podcast this week with co-host Ben Ferguson, which comes after Durbin falsely claimed that no one wanted to subpoena Epstein’s flight logs.

The senator said that “the subpoenas going after Harlan Crowe and going after Leonard Leo are part of their ongoing effort to harass the Supreme Court, to de-legitimize the Supreme Court, and in particular to target Clarence Thomas.”

“They despise Clarence Thomas,” Cruz said. “So, in response to that, a number of Republicans had different amendments that we were pushing that if they were going to force a vote on the subpoenas, we were going to force a vote on our amendments.”

Cruz noted that Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) proposed subpoenaing “Epstein’s estate for the flight logs to his plane and in particular, the Lolita express … the private jet that flew down to Jeffrey Epstein’s island with lots and lots of politicians allegedly, mostly Democrats. We don’t know who was on it.”

“This is easy to resolve. We should subpoena Epstein’s flight records,” he continued. “If there are politicians, Democrat or Republican or anybody else who was on that plane, who was going to that island, who was molesting and sexually assaulting children, we should know who they are.”

“The fact that the Democrats are apparently in a full-on panic, I don’t know if Durbin knows somebody on that list or I don’t know if they’re just afraid,” he continued. “I don’t know what their fear is. But they’re plainly terrified of voting on it. And if I’m wrong, Durbin can solve it very easily by bringing it up for a vote and issuing the subpoena.”
