Acting where authorities wouldn’t, Fox News host Jesse Watters confronted a presidential candidate directly over traveling on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet.
“All of that should be open to the public.”

After bucking the Democratic Party for an independent run at the White House, environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. upset the political apple cart yet again with a direct answer about riding aboard the infamous “Lolita Express.”
During an interview on “Jesse Watters Primetime,” the Fox News host pivoted from the topic of the FBI’s targeting of Catholics with a callback to his monologue as he asked of the presidential hopeful, “You weren’t ever on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet, were you?”
“I was on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet two times,” asserted Kennedy.
Rather than avoid the record of his past connection to the man who would go on to become a convicted sex offender, the candidate provided details on the instances that dated back three decades.
“I was on it in 1993, and I was on it in — and I went to Florida with my wife and two children to visit my mom over Easter…my wife had some kind of relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell and they offered us a ride to Palm Beach,” appearing to refer to his first marriage to Emily Black.
Kennedy then referenced his second marriage to Mary Richardson as he said without estimating the year, “I went then, and another occasion, I flew again with my family with, I think, four of my children and…Mary my wife to Rapid City, South Dakota to go fossil hunting for a weekend.”
“But otherwise, I was never on his jet alone,” he assured.
“I have been very open about this from the beginning. This was in ’93, so it was 30 years ago. It was before anybody knew about Jeffrey Epstein’s, you know, his nefarious issues,” asserted Kennedy. Epstein was not convicted until 2008.
“And I agree with you that all of this information should be released. We should get real answers on what happened to Jeffrey Epstein and any of the high-level political people that he was involved with. All of that should be open to the public,” furthered the independent candidate. “It should be absolutely transparent and I don’t see why any of those records would have any redactions in them. Why would we be hiding that from the American public? That’s outrageous.”
Watters had raised the point to Kennedy after referencing remarks from Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin (D) who appeared to be “playing dumb” on efforts to make public the records of Epstein’s flight logs.
“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,” said Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R) during a Nov. 9 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing only to report that Durbin would go on to block her request to subpoena the logs.
The apparent forthrightness of Kennedy was refreshing to many though it didn’t necessarily move the needle over their concerns about the connection.
Good on him that he explained it. You have to know that they’d try to use it against him if or when those logs finally are released officially.

He rode on the plane. I have perspective that make it a no go for Kennedy. When doing business in Asia there were ALWAYS attempts to bribe me. Sex, diamonds, exotic vacations…. “We will go to — and we will send our wives to the beach. They can have fun with the kids and we…

He admits to galavanting on the Epstein jet… but why only now? Was it because he knows Marsha Blackburn is pushing for the list? Watch, plenty of people will now admit to the same … innocent travel
