Blackburn demands Durbin subpoena unredacted Epstein flight logs as Senate Judiciary Committee’s ‘first act’

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) called for the subpoenaing of unredacted Jeffrey Epstein flight logs from the Federal Aviation Administration as the first act of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s probe into the disgraced financier.

It was reported earlier this month that Senate Judiciary Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) had agreed to launch a bipartisan investigation into the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) handling of the investigation into Epstein in the wake of his suicide.

In a letter to Sen. Graham, who is also Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Blackburn said that the unredacted flight logs were “critical” to the investigation, and that the committee should subpoenaed them from the FAA as its first act.

“Such an investigative step would not only illustrate the work that has been completed to date, but also act as a strong deterrent to future criminal behavior,” Blackburn wrote. “I am confident that if the American people knew the full extent of his activities, it would send a powerful message of accountability.”

In addition to the unredacted flight logs, Blackburn also called for the DOJ to release all documents related to the DOJ’s handling of Epstein’s case, as well as its handling of sexual assault victims. She also requested that the Senate Judiciary Committee bring in all DOJ officials involved in the handling of Epstein’s case to testify under oath.
