Sen. Dick Durbin was confronted by reporter Hillary Vaughn over him blocking Sen. Marsha Blackburn’s attempt to subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs.
“Senator Durbin BLOCKED my request to subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs,” Blackburn tweeted. “What are Democrats trying to hide?”
On Capitol Hill, Vaughn asked Durbin “Why won’t you subpoena Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs?” - to which he pretended to not know what they were and falsely claim that the issue was never presented to him.
“Well, he was charged with sex trafficking. So why don’t you want to know who was utilizing his private plane?” Vaughn asked.
“It’s never been raised by anyone” Durbin replied.
After Vaughn asked “But aren’t you curious about which high profile or powerful people might be closeted predators and pedophiles? Doesn’t that concern you? So why won’t you subpoena them if you can?” Durbin replied “it’s the first time anyone raised it” and walked away.
To point out the obvious; Durbin clearly is aware exactly what subpoena Vaugnn is talking to, and it’s unclear why he’d think an issue being raised for the first time somehow invalidates it, as every issue that exists was once raised for the first time.
