WASHINGTON, D.C. – Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. revealed on Tuesday evening that he had taken two flights aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet and that his former wife had a connection to Epstein’s associate Ghislaine Maxwell, the notorious madam.
Kennedy made the admission during an interview with Jesse Watters, prompted by FBI Director Christopher Wray’s testimony regarding Epstein earlier that day.
Kennedy stated that he had flown on Epstein’s jet twice, once in 1993 and once on a family trip to Florida. He also mentioned that he had gone fossil hunting in South Dakota with Epstein, providing little explanation.
Kennedy emphasized that these encounters predated the public knowledge of Epstein’s criminal activities. He called for transparency in revealing information about Epstein’s connections to high-level political figures, asserting that the public deserves answers about what happened to Epstein.
Regarding his ex-wife’s relationship with Maxwell, Kennedy’s spokesperson clarified that his former wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, had known Maxwell and that Maxwell had offered the family a ride to Palm Beach, Florida, for Easter.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is the son of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy and the nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy.
The revelations made by Kennedy regarding his interactions with Epstein and his ex-wife’s connection to Maxwell highlight the far-reaching scope of Epstein’s influence. Kennedy’s call for transparency aligns with demands for accountability in light of Epstein’s sex trafficking charges. The impact of Kennedy’s independent candidacy on the race for the White House remains to be seen.
