(New York Post) Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. admitted he flew on late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet twice, not just once as he previously claimed — and that his then-wife had a “relationship” with madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
The independent candidate opened up about his ties to the notorious perv after being asked by Fox News’ Jesse Watters as he discussed his ethics late Tuesday.
“I was on Jeffrey Epstein’s jet two times,” Kennedy said of the jet widely dubbed “Lolita Express” for its use in taking girls to the disgraced moneyman’s private island.
“I was on it in 1993 and I was on it in — and I went to Florida with my wife and two children to visit my mom over Easter,” he said, referring to his late ex-wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, who died by suicide in 2012.
“My wife had some kind of relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell, and they offered us a ride to Palm Beach,” he said.
“I went then, 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.

“Otherwise, I was never on his jet alone,” he insisted.
“This was in ’93, so it was 30 years ago — before anybody knew about Jeffrey Epstein’s nefarious issues.”
Kennedy, 69, went on to claim that he has been “very open” about his relationship with Epstein from the beginning of his campaign.
However, the longshot presidential candidate’s spokesman told Newsweek last month that Kennedy “had “flown one time on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane,” detailing the Easter trip to see his mom.
“Mary, Kennedy’s wife, and two of their kids were on the flight,” the spokesperson again said.
“Mary knew Epstein’s girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who learned that they were going to Palm Beach for Easter and offered [the] family a ride.”
There have been connections between Maxwell and the Kennedy family going back decades.
The British socialite was even once a guest at the high-profile wedding of former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Kerry Kennedy.
She allegedly boasted at the nuptials about how she slept with John F. Kennedy Jr., whom she considered her “chief conquest,” Christina Oxenberg claims in her new book “Trash: Encounters with Ghislaine Maxwell.”
