DeSantis To Approve Release Of Jeffrey Epstein Grand Jury Docs

Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced on Wednesday his intention to sign into law a bill that would make public the grand jury material from the state’s 2006 investigation into the activities of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The unanimously passed legislation by the Florida Legislature aims to release documents shedding light on why the grand jury opted for minimal charges against Epstein in 2006.

Epstein later pleaded guilty in 2008 to state charges related to procuring a minor for prostitution and solicitation of prostitution, receiving an 18-month jail sentence with daily work release privileges.

“All files related to Jeffrey Epstein’s criminal activity should be made public,” DeSantis posted on social media platform X. “While the federal government continues to stonewall accountability, I’m glad the Legislature has taken action to release the grand jury material from the Florida state case. I will sign the bill into law.”

Governor DeSantis also raised concerns about the Biden administration’s delay in releasing additional Epstein files.

“Why won’t Biden release the federal government’s Epstein files?” he questioned on X.
