Republicans are moving to issue subpoenas against the estate of Jeffrey Epstein in order to obtain the infamous flight logs from his private jet.
The plane, named the “Lolita Express,” was fitted out with beds on board and has been cited by multiple victims as one of the key locations where abuse took place.
Former President Bill Clinton is already known to have flown on the private jet at least 26 times.
However, it has long been suspected that Clinton may have flown on the plane more often than has so far been revealed.
On Thursday, Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) called on her colleagues in the Senate to approve a subpoena against the estate of deceased financier Epstein, a convicted sex offender and Democrat megadonor.
Blackburn is demanding that Congress gain access to flight logs from 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,” Blackburn said in a news release.
Blackburn announced she filed the request during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing surrounding Sen. Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) attempts to investigate Supreme Court ethics issues.
Amid a fiery exchange between the two lawmakers, Blackburn announced a series of subpoenas, including the one against Epstein’s estate.
“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 said.
Epstein was found dead in his New York prison cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges.
His operation involved running a “vast network” of underage girls for sex.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges prior to his death at 66 years old.
Since his death, Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell has been convicted and jailed over his role in the sex trafficking operations.
However, authorities are still refusing to reveal who they were trafficking the victims to, and the elusive “client list” has never been made public.
Business Insider previously reported that Epstein had owned at least three jets.
They included a Gulfstream II sold in November 2013, a Gulfstream IV sold before his arrest, and a Boeing 727 nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”
It was the “Lolita Express” which infamously transported prominent individuals and girls all around the world.
The so-called Lolita Express private jet has been the subject of controversy amid the accusations brought against Epstein and, in particular, the flight records connected to the plane that supposedly include the names of those who traveled with him.
In December 2021, prosecutors reportedly released thousands of flight records in Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial.
Maxwell pleaded not guilty but was ultimately convicted.
In addition to who flew on the plane, the 118-page collection of flight logs reportedly contains other information such as dates, points of departure and arrival, number of landings, and the pilot’s signature.
Victims of Epstein, and one of his pilots, have since come out and claimed that public figures, including Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, and Bill Clinton traveled with the disgraced financier.
Insider reported that flight manifests unsealed in a defamation case against Maxwell included Clinton, supermodel Naomi Campbell, and the astronaut John Glenn.
FAA records obtained by Insider found Epstein’s jets flew mainly between his former primary residences in New York and Palm Beach and his estates in Paris, New Mexico, and the Virgin Islands.
His private island in the Virgin Islands was dubbed “Pedophile Island” by locals and authorities due to the number of underage girls that were transported to and from the secluded location that was frequented by Epstein’s high-profile associates.
