Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., on Thursday announced that she had issued a subpoena for disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein's flight logs. 

"Since we're in the business of issuing subpoenas now, here are a few more that I've filed: a subpoena to Jeffrey Epstein's estate to provide the flight logs for his private plane," Blackburn said during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

"Given the numerous allegations of human trafficking and sexual abuse surrounding Mr. Epstein, I think it is very important that we identify everybody that was on that plane, and how many trips they took on that plane, and the destinations to which they arrived," she added.

Epstein died in prison in August 2019 while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking of dozens of girls.

During the committee hearing, Blackburn called out Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., for attempting to investigate Supreme Court ethics issues, alleging that the investigations are politically motivated due to his not agreeing with recent decisions that the court has made.

She went on to list more subpoenas that she had issued, including one for Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to come before the committee and give answers regarding the Office of Refugee Resettlement losing track of thousands of immigrant children.
