Representative Tim Burchett (R-TN) made a startling accusation on Thursday, claiming that he believes that members of Congress are “compromised” into not providing public information on notorious sex predator Jeffrey Epstein.
Burchett’s comments came during a discussion with conservative political analyst Benny Johnson.
The pair were discussing a letter the lawmaker had written to House Oversight & Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) requesting that he subpoena flight logs for Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) previously pushed to subpoena Epstein’s flight records, but that effort was squashed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL), who suggested that there was no public value in the information.
Epstein, who was convicted of procuring for prostitution a girl below the age of 18 in 2008 and was facing sex trafficking charges until he died, according to authorities by suicide in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019, was known to have traveled by jet.
The jet earned the nickname, “Lolita Express.”

Have Members Of Congress Been Blackmailed Over Epstein Information?
At one point during the interview, Burchett is asked in no uncertain terms whether he thinks the information on Epstein’s flight logs is so difficult to obtain due to members of Congress being “compromised.”
In his questioning, Johnson leaves no room for ambiguity.
“So you’re saying that right now … there are members of Congress who have been compromised by either special interests or the intelligence community to not give the American public information on Jeffrey Epstein?” Johnson asked.
“I believe so,” Burchett replied. “One hundred percent.”
Burchett goes on to slam “unelected bureaucrats” in the intelligence community who have, in his estimation, taken part in other efforts to keep information out of the public square.
One only has to go back to the Hunter Biden laptop or COVID-19 censorship efforts to see such coverups in action.
Johnson notes that “many (people) have speculated that Jeffrey Epstein was an intelligence asset” who would get famous individuals like Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, or the Royal Family, in “compromising positions,” leading to his own personal wealth and power over those people.
Burchett responded that he viewed Epstein as a “free agent” who would say, “Hey, I’ve got this guy and what will you give me to keep him under wraps?”

Who Else Has Been Compromised?
Burchett and Johnson went into further detail about former President Clinton during their discussion of Epstein.
Clinton had traveled on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” 26 separate times, according to a Fox News analysis, while other analyses of flight logs led to claims of fewer trips. Regardless, there is no denying he traveled on the plane.
Doug Band, a former top aide to Clinton, made shocking allegations in a 2020 interview with Vanity Fair, including claims that the former president took a trip in 2003 to Epstein’s famed private island.
Johnson contends that Epstein likely had an “enormous treasure trove of information on Bill Clinton,” and even referenced the oil painting kept by the sex trafficker.
Epstein kept a disturbing painting depicting Clinton wearing red high heels and a blue dress hanging in his Manhattan townhouse.
Podcast host Joe Rogan suggested that the painting was kept there as a means to remind Clinton who had the real power.
“That painting is like: ‘I got you, b****,” Rogan said. “You know he knows about it.”
“Imagine if I knew some horrible dark secrets about you and you came over to my house and I have a giant painting of you,” he continued. “Right when you walk into the front door of you in a dress and I’m like, ‘Hey buddy.’”
“Do you think that Jeffrey Epstein was killed because our intelligence agencies were upset that this all happened, were angry that somebody was able to get one over on Bill Clinton?” Johnson asked the Tennessee congressman.
“I don’t know if it’s our intelligence agencies or not, but somebody of power,” Burchett replied. “You know … there’s always a diversion in these things. You always look at ‘A’ and it’s always ‘A plus three’, somebody further down that list would push out Clinton.”
“Because Clinton’s just a boob,” he added.
Burchett even began wading into the notorious Clinton death toll conspiracies, saying it’s openly discussed in a joking matter inside the congressional gym.
“They (Democrat colleagues) laugh about it,” he said. “About people that have met their demise, that have been close to them (the Clinton’s).”
