Epstein’s pilot has been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors, who will most likely focus on his shady private jet flights to his island. The Washington Examiner reports:
At least some of the long-time personal pilots for global jet-setting and accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein have been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors as investigators scrutinize the convicted sex offender’s travels, according to a report.
A Manhattan grand jury sent Epstein’s pilots subpoenas earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. One pilot’s attorney confirming that the subpoena had been issued.
It isn’t clear which pilots were subpoenaed, what topics the subpoenas cover, and whether any of the pilots are working with investigators already. Epstein, who has homes in New York City, Florida, New Mexico, and the Virgin Islands, was arrested at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey earlier this month when he arrived from Paris, France, where he also has a residence.
Epstein allegedly sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes and other locations between 2002 and 2005 and perhaps beyond. Some of the victims were reportedly as young as 14 at the time the alleged crimes occurred.
Was the pilot complicit in this? He could face charges himself, and therefore flip to avoid serious jail time.
