There are still many unanswered questions about the life of deceased sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

Now one Republican is looking to expose the truth about what happened. 

And John Kennedy asked the FBI one question about Jeffrey Epstein that left Democrats sick.

FBI Director grilled by John Kennedy about the status of Jeffrey Epstein’s information

FBI Director Christopher Wray attended a hearing of the Senate Appropriations Committee to demand more taxpayer money for the bureau.

But he got more than bargained for during an exchange with U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA).

Kennedy pressed him about the status of the FBI’s investigation into deceased child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his madam, Ghislaine Maxwell.

The colorful Louisiana lawmaker asked what the FBI was doing to investigate the other people who were involved in their sex trafficking ring.

A visibly nervous Wray said he couldn’t confirm the names of individuals.

“Jeffrey Epstein had video surveillance in all of his homes and on his private island,” Kennedy stated. “There have been articles after articles from witnesses who have said he videotaped sex acts with prominent people [and] young girls that he procured.”

“The FBI and other federal agencies have raided [Epstein’s] houses. Do you have those tapes?” Kennedy asked.

“I can’t discuss the specifics of our law-enforcement operations related to Mr. Epstein or Miss Maxwell,” Wray replied.

Wray said that the FBI had done a thorough investigation on the pair but that he couldn’t comment on any other individuals.

“I just want to know if these prominent people are above the law and aren’t being investigated, or is the FBI investigating?” Kennedy questioned. 

“Well, no one is above the law, number one,” Wray claimed. “As to whether specific people are being investigated, that’s not something, as I’m sure you can appreciate, I can engage on.”

“Is [the investigation] ongoing?” Kennedy pressed. 

“I’m not sure there’s anything I can share with you on that,” Wray replied.

The FBI doesn’t have any answers for the public about Epstein, but there is some new information on the late sex trafficker coming this summer.

Ron DeSantis unsealing Epstein records from Florida

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law earlier this year that would allow for the release of the details from the 2006 grand jury investigation into Jeffrey Epstein in Palm Beach County, Florida.

That was the first criminal case involving Epstein, where a grand jury indicted him on felony prostitution.

“The public deserves to know who participated in the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking,” DeSantis said when he signed the bill. “Nobody should be protected from facing justice due to their wealth or status, and those who harm children should be exposed and punished to the fullest extent of the law.”  

The law goes into effect on July 1.

Ron DeSantis paved the way for at least some of the information about Jeffrey Epstein to finally see the light of day.
