That's the new name for billionaire, registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's private plane and federal investigators want a word for anyone who went along for a ride.
U.S. prosecutors on Monday encouraged anyone with information about Epstein’s conduct to come forward, not just potential victims. To the socialites, celebrities and politicians who attended lavish parties at Epstein’s homes in Manhattan or Palm Beach in the early 2000s -- or hitched rides on his private jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express” by the tabloids -- the request carried a clear message: Come talk to us before we seek you out.
“You would much rather be visiting the Department of Justice and engaging a conversation about what you saw rather than making the DoJ find you,” said Jacob Frenkel, a former federal prosecutor now at Dickinson-Wright. “There’s a much greater potential for influencing the parameters of an interview and the scope of cooperation by going in voluntarily than becoming a compulsory guest” of the government, he said.This scandal is about as salacious as they come. Pretty much everybody who partied with Epstein is now tainted - Bill Clinton, Randy Andy, Alan Dershowitz, even Donald Trump.
As for the Lolita Express it is reported that Epstein's Gulfstream might have been co-piloted by one Nadia Marcinkova.
Nadia attended flight school in - wait for it - Palm Beach, Florida. New York magazine tied her to Epstein.
In an 2007 article in New York Magazine, Philip Weiss writes that Epstein had brought 14 year old Nada Marcinkova to Palm Beach from the Balkans to be his “sex slave”. In the article, the reporter states that Marcinkova became part of the Epstein household and over the course of a decade eventually started participating in the sexual abuse of underage girls.
Nadia holds FAA licenses as a single and multi engine, instrument-rated pilot and ground and flight instructor. She has told us and we know – because her lovely face adorns every channel of the many she maintains – that she was a fashion model herself. Runway to runway, she likes to say. Nadia is also posed somewhat provocatively andHere's a photo of a Gulfstream similar to Epstein's Lolita Express.
