Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told Fox News host Jesse Watters he flew on pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s jet twice.
The independent candidate told Watters his ex-wife had some kind of relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell and said he’s previously been open about the matter.
RFK Jr. said he went fossil hunting in South Dakota with Epstein and discussed how the records on the infamous pedophile should be “open to the public.”
“I was on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet two times. I was on it in 1993 and I went to Florida with my wife and two children to visit my mom over Easter,” RFK Jr. said.
“My wife had some kind of relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell and they offered us a ride to Palm Beach, so I went then,” he added.
“And on another occasion, I flew again with my family with, I think, four of my children and Mary, my wife to Rapid City, South Dakota, to go fossil hunting for a weekend,” he noted.
“But otherwise I was never on his jet alone. I, you know, I’ve been very open about this from the beginning. This was in ’93 – so it was 30 years ago. It was before anybody knew about Jeffrey Epstein’s, you know, his nefarious issues,” he continued.

Daily Caller reports:
Epstein was awaiting trial for sex trafficking and conspiracy charges in July 2019, before he killed himself in August 2019. Epstein had previously been convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor, the BBC reported.
As limited information on the deceased pedophile’s flight log has slowly leaked to the public, Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn submitted a subpoena request for the full records in early November, according to Fox News.
However, Blackburn’s request has since been denied, and she called out Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin for allegedly blocking her move, the outlet reported. The Tennessee lawmaker emphasized the importance of Epstein’s logs, stating the need to “identify everyone who could have participated in his horrific conduct.”
“A subpoena to Jeffrey Epstein’s estate to provide the flight logs for his private plane. Given the numerous allegations of human trafficking and abuse surrounding Mr. Epstein, we’ve got to identify everyone who could have participated in his horrific conduct,” Blackburn stated, according to Fox News.
“There are some connections between Epstein, Maxwell and the Kennedys dating back decades,” Daily Mail noted.
Per Daily Mail:
Ghislaine Maxwell was once a guest at the high-profile wedding of Andrew Cuomo and Kerry Kennedy as it’s revealed the alleged sex trafficker would boast about sleeping with JFK Jr who she regarded as her ‘chief conquest’.
Christina Oxenberg, Prince Andrew’s cousin, revealed that she met Maxwell at the merging of the political dynasties in 1990.
Oxenberg recalled in her new book, Trash: Encounters With Ghislaine Maxwell, that the ceremony happening at a Washington DC cathedral surrounded by the media, fans, and ‘scores of invited guests.’
Some friends and family later gathered at Ethel Kennedy’s home in McClean, Virginia, which is where Oxenberg said she met the now-infamous socialite.
‘I was standing with my then-husband, Damian Elwes, a British painter when Ghislaine sauntered over. She and Damian burst with enthusiastic greetings,’ Oxenberg wrote.
‘I would later learn they were friends from their ‘Oxford days’, which I put in quotes because Damian never attended Oxford.’
She said she partook in casual conversation with Maxwell, and believes Cuomo invited her to the ceremony.
‘He was simply the governor’s son in those days and little was known about him,’ she told The Sun.
Cuomo was married to Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of former Attorney General and Senator Robert F. Kennedy Sr. and Ethel Kennedy for 15 years.
