Former Democrat and now independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. trails far in the polls to incumbent President Joe Biden. His probability of an upset victory dimmed some after an interview with Fox News’ Jesse Watters.
During the Tuesday evening interview, the presidential candidate admitted he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet on two occasions and that his wife had a “relationship” with Ghislaine Maxwell.
Epstein died in August 2019 while in custody awaiting trial on multiple charges of sex trafficking and sex crimes against minors. His accomplice in crime was Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence.
Epstein reportedly used his personal jet to ferry wealthy individuals to his private island in the Caribbean.
The admission, which could have severe political ramifications, follows statements JFK Jr. made to Newsweek last month when he shared he had “flown one time on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane,” dubbed by many as the “Lolita Express.”
JFK Jr. told Watters: “I was on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet two times. I was on it in 1993 and I was on it in [in 2012] … when 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,” JFK Jr. said.
Maxwell also reportedly asked many to ride on Epstein’s private jet to various locations in the U.S. Flight logs appear to indicate that passengers include former president Bill Clinton, New York City Mayor Andrew Cuomo and Kerry Kennedy.
The New York Post reported that in her book “Trash: Encounters with Ghislaine Maxwell,” author Christina Oxenberg alleged that Maxwell had an intimate relationship with JFK Jr. and considered him her “chief conquest.”
The presidential candidate added: “[And] on another occasion I flew … 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.”
Wanting to move forward and not be distracted or bogged down with issues from the past, JFK Jr. told Watters:
“And I agree with you that all of this information should be released, and 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.”
Kennedy added: “[I desire to be] absolutely be transparent, and I don’t see why any of those records would have any redactions in them.”
