The Senate Intelligence Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday on a recent report by the U.S. government that concluded Epstein has a history of sexually assaulting young girls.
The bipartisan panel is scheduled for a hearing in front of the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services Committees.
The panel, which has jurisdiction over the Justice Department, will be led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and will include a number of senators, including the committee’s ranking Democrat, Sen. Dick Durbin, D, Ill.
The hearing is also expected to feature testimony from former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who resigned in February after the FBI learned that Epstein was paying underage girls for sex.
Epstein has denied the accusations, and his attorney has maintained that Epstein did not have a sexual relationship with any underage girls.
Feinstein said she and the committee were “extremely troubled” by the findings and that they would continue to hold Epstein accountable for the abuse.
“Epstein’s past conduct and his actions are completely reprehensible and inexcusable,” Feinstein said.
“These charges against him have been made in the heat of the moment and, at this very moment, the United States is engaged in an international crisis that is at the forefront of American lives.
We will continue to demand accountability from Epstein, and will work to hold him accountable for his crimes.”
Epstein, 74, is the grandson of the late financier George and the sister of the billionaire financiers Jeffrey Epstein and Linda Tripp.
The three were arrested in the Dominican Republic in 2012 after authorities say they sexually assaulted a woman in a hotel room.
