Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. admitted to flying on a jet owned by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein on two occasions, both times accompanied by his family.
Kennedy appeared on the Fox News Show “Jesse Watters Primetime” to discuss government overreach when the topic of Epstein’s jet was broached by the show’s host. Watters asked Kennedy if he had ever been on the infamous aircraft and Kennedy was quick to reply.
“I was on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet two times,” Kennedy said. “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.”
According to Newsweek, this interview was just weeks after Kennedy told the news outlet that he had only taken one flight on Epstein’s jet, and there has been no word on why this discrepancy took place.

The context of the line of questioning about Epstein had to do with releasing the flight logs from Epstein’s jet presumably to know who rode on it and where they went. Preceding his question to Kennedy, Watters stated that Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) is blocking the release of those flight logs as alleged by Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
Kennedy was clear in his desire to have all of the records of Epstein’s estate released to the public at one point even questioning why they were being hidden in the first place.
“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. It should absolutely be transparent,” Kennedy told Watters.
The independent candidate was quick to mention that his trip on Epstein’s jet happened in 1993 before any of Epstein’s “nefarious issues” were known, and also pointed out that he has been “very open” from the beginning about his relationship with Epstein.
