BREAKING: Prosecutors Subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s Private Pilots
Today the Wall Street Journal reported that the long time personal pilots of Jeffrey Epstein, who piloted the infamous Lolita Express, have been subpoenaed by prosecutors who hope to gain information about what happened on the famous luxury jet.
Epstein, the convicted sex offender who allegedly attempted suicide earlier this week and is now on suicide watch in a federal facility, famously jetted around the world in his private, luxury airplane dubbed The Lolita Express by the media. Now the pilots who flew Epstein have been subpoenaed by prosecutors who hope to learn more about what happened on the famous airplane.
On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that prosecutors have subpoenaed Epstein’s longtime personal pilots. The newspapers said it is not known what information is being sought by the subpoenas, which were issued by a grand jury, or how many pilots received the demands for information.
Epstein was arrested July 6 at Teterboro Airport in northern New Jersey, after he was flown there on one of his private jets from Paris.
The Journal reported that the subpoenas could be used to corroborate allegations from women who have accused Epstein of sexual abuse, or to detail Epstein’s travel history and associations.
President Bill Clinton, a longtime friend and associate of Epstein who has tried to obscure his relationship with the convicted sex offender in recent days, famously flew on The Lolita Express at least 26 times, sometimes shirking his Secret Service security detail while on the airplane.
Earlier this month President Donald Trump urged members of the media and the public to learn who traveled to Epstein’s famous island, where, allegedly, elites would sexually abuse minor children.
The president then suggested members of the press and public look into the high profile individuals who visited Epstein’s private island.
“Now other people, they went all over with him, they went to his island. They went all over the place. He was very well known in Palm Beach,” said the president. “His island, whatever his island was, wherever it is, I was never there.”
“Find out the people that went to the island.”
President Trump then doubled down, rebuking the mainstream media’s narrative that he is somehow an associate of Epstein.
Earlier this week Epstein allegedly attempted to commit suicide, and was found in his cell with marks on his neck. It does not appear his injuries, which authorities still have not confirmed were self inflicted, were severe, and he was later seen meeting with his legal team.
