Democrat who shut down Epstein investigation has a history of covering for Epstein

Senator Dick Durbin’s push to shut down Senator Marsha Blackburn’s investigation into Epstein’s flight logs comes after a long series of actions covering for the billionaire pedophile.

Which makes many wonder why Durbin is working so hard to protect Jeffrey Epstein.

“Democrat senator Dick Durbin of Illinois adjourned a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing before holding a vote on whether or not to approve Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee’s subpoena for the Jeffrey Epstein flight logs,” the National File reported.

“It turns out that Dick Durbin personally tried to shut down the Jeffrey Epstein disclosure movement by disparaging those who believe in a ‘grand conspiracy’ surrounding accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epsteins’ death. Durbin is a close ally of former President Bill Clinton, who palled around with Epstein and flew on Epstein’s private jet,” the news outlet charged.

The subject of Epstein’s flight logs came up during a hearing where Republicans were striking back at Democrats over attacks against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, accusing him of corruption.

“Since we’re in the business of issuing subpoenas now, here are a few more that I’ve filed,” Blackburn told the committee during Thursday’s hearing.

“A subpoena to Jeffrey Epstein’s estate to provide the flight logs for his private plane. Given the numerous allegations of human trafficking and abuse surrounding Mr. Epstein, we’ve got to identify everyone who could have participated in his horrific conduct,” she stated.

“The American people deserve to know the names of every person who participated in Jeffrey Epstein’s human trafficking ring. We need to see his flight logs. I’ve asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to authorize a subpoena to his estate so we can review these documents,” Blackburn asserted on X.

“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 also contended.

Durbin halted the authorization of the Supreme Court subpoenas after Blackburn and other Republicans objected and threatened to slam Democrats with a slew of subpoenas including ones that took aim at Supreme Court Justice Sonia Maria Sotomayor.

True to form, Durbin did not hold a vote on Blackburn’s subpoena concerning Epstein. But he did sing the praises of a Department of Justice inspector general report recently on the subject and he has also mocked those who believe there’s a “conspiracy” surrounding the death of the infamous sex trafficker.

“I thank the Inspector General for conducting a thorough investigation that reiterates many concerns I have long raised and makes clear that this death was not due to a grand conspiracy, but BOP’s incompetence and neglect,” Durbin remarked in a statement at the time the report was released.

“My concerns, and those raised in this report, include the fact that BOP staffing shortages lead to dangerous conditions for incarcerated individuals and staff; that BOP must improve its prison camera system to increase safety and security throughout its facilities; and that many people in restrictive housing need more robust mental health services and less restrictive custody,” Durbin stated.

“I will keep pushing BOP to ensure they operate federal prisons safely, securely, and effectively, and will continue to conduct oversight of these issues at a BOP oversight hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee this fall,” he vowed.

Blackburn is not dropping the subject and will take another swing at getting a hold of Epstein’s flight logs.

“A spokesperson for Blackburn told Fox News Digital that the senator would push for the Epstein subpoena again at another committee hearing next week that will again address the Supreme Court probe subpoenas,” Fox News reported.
