MMA enthusiasts were in for a surprise last Friday when the formidable fighter, King Bau, entered the arena donning a striking message on his shirt—one that left no room for ambiguity. In a bold statement, King Bau called out the perceived shortcomings of the judicial system’s response to the Epstein human trafficking network while questioning the efforts to hold former President Trump accountable.
The message emblazoned on his shirt declared, “Trump was indicted before anyone on Epstein’s client list.” While this claim may not hold up to the strictest scrutiny, it serves as a stark reminder of the lingering questions surrounding the Epstein case. Some individuals on the infamous client list have faced legal consequences for their involvement with the disgraced billionaire, while others, including high-profile figures like former President Bill Clinton and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, remain untouched by the long arm of the law.
Regardless of the shirt’s accuracy, the video of King Bau making his entrance with this bold statement quickly went viral, gaining traction on various platforms, most notably X (formerly Twitter).

Prominent conservative Twitter personality, Collin Rugg, was among those who weighed in on the incident, expressing frustration with the Department of Justice’s perceived inaction in addressing the Epstein scandal. Rugg’s sentiment reflects a broader sentiment among many Americans who are disheartened by the limited action taken so far, which mainly consists of the arrest and prosecution of Ghislaine Maxwell.
However, one stalwart GOP senator, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, has taken a stand, demanding a more comprehensive investigation into the Epstein case and a thorough examination of those involved. Sen. Blackburn has called on the Senate Judiciary Committee to subpoena Epstein’s estate and release the full flight logs for his private jet, including those associated with the infamous “Lolita Express.”
In a tweet posted on X, Sen. Blackburn asserted, “The American people deserve to know the names of every person who participated in Jeffrey Epstein’s human trafficking ring. We need to see his flight logs. I’ve asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to authorize a subpoena to his estate so we can review these documents.”
Sen. Blackburn’s actions highlight her commitment to transparency and accountability, as she strives to uncover the truth behind this sordid chapter in American history. Her efforts extend beyond the Epstein case, as she also seeks answers regarding the Department of Justice’s handling of unaccompanied children and the termination of the China Initiative—a program vital in targeting and prosecuting Chinese spies on American soil.
The Epstein case resurfaced in the context of Sen. Blackburn’s call for subpoenas, emphasizing the need to identify all those involved in the alleged misconduct. She stated, “And since we’re in the business of issuing subpoenas now, here are a few more that I’ve filed. A subpoena to Jeffrey Epstein’s estate to provide the flight logs for his private plane. Given the numerous allegations of human trafficking and abuse surrounding Mr. Epstein, we’ve got to identify everyone who could have participated in his horrific conduct.”
In addition to her efforts surrounding the Epstein case, Sen. Blackburn has not shied away from holding the Biden administration accountable for its perceived failings. She has requested Secretary Xavier Becerra to explain how the administration “lost track of 85,000 unaccompanied children” and has issued a subpoena to compel the Biden Department of Justice to provide all relevant documentation regarding the termination of the China Initiative—a program with crucial national security implications.
While the Epstein case continues to raise questions and spark controversy, Sen. Marsha Blackburn’s unwavering commitment to transparency and accountability offers a glimmer of hope for those seeking answers and justice.
As the nation grapples with these pressing issues, it remains to be seen whether King Bau’s striking message on his shirt will serve as a catalyst for further discussion and action in addressing the Epstein scandal and its associated challenges. One thing is certain—this chapter in American history is far from over, and the pursuit of truth and justice continues.
