Subpoenas were sent by a Manhattan grand jury to Epstein’s pilots
Federal prosecutors have subpoenaed various long-time personal pilots of alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, as prosecutors move on the billionaire’s travels, according to reports.
Subpoenas were sent by a Manhattan grand jury to Epstein’s pilots earlier this month, according to the Wall Street Journal.
One pilot has already confirmed the issue of the subpoenas.
But it is still not clear which pilots have been subpoenaed, what topics they cover, or if the pilots are working with investigators.
Earlier this month, a former top FBI official revealed that the current federal indictments for child sex trafficking against Epstein are likely just a “placeholder,” with “dozens” more charges to follow.
Ex-Assistant FBI Director Chris Swecker said Monday that he expects a much larger “superseding” indictment against Epstein to be forthcoming.
An indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed against the billionaire financier, Clinton donor, and registered sex offender.
Epstein allegedly sexually abused and exploited dozens of minor girls between 2002 and 2005.
Government attorneys said they are willing to give documents and materials that are “highly confidential images of nude or partially-nude individuals” seized during their raid of Epstein’s Manhattan home.
In May 2016 Fox News revealed that former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” private jet at least 26 times, reportedly even ditching his secret service detail “for at least five” of the times he traveled.
Flight logs show Bill Clinton was a frequent flyer on Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet.

Epstein’s jet was reportedly set up with a bed where guests had group sex with young girls.
The longtime chief pilot of Epstein’s fleet, Larry Visoski has been named along with Larry Morrison, David Rodgers, and Bill Hammond, who are also named as Epstein’s pilots and flight engineers in a number of court documents.
According to The Washington Examiner: Visoski and Morrison were deposed as part of lawsuits brought by alleged victims in the wake of the 2008 deal.
Those lawsuits also spurred the release of flight manifests signed by Rogers showing Epstein crisscrossed the globe from 1997 to 2005 accompanied by tycoons, celebrities, employees, friends, and politics, including former President Bill Clinton.
Some of Epstein’s alleged victims had said the logs show they were on Epstein’s so-called “Lolita Express” when they were underage, and that Epstein’s pilots and other employees helped him break the law in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
One Epstein accuser has said that she was a minor in 2000 when she would accompany Epstein on his jet, where she alleges that some of Epstein’s pals sexually abused her.
Epstein is in jail after a judge last week denied him bail.
