    ABC anchor: We had Epstein three years ago — and ABC spiked it

    ABC anchor: We had Epstein three years ago — and ABC spiked it; Update: “Private moment of frustration,” says Robach

    Forget the hidden cameras and the cloak-and-dagger trappings of the usual Project Veritas scoop. In today’s big PV drop, ABC News anchor Amy Robach helpfully narrates the story of how her network spiked her investigative report on sex offender and trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. In a hot mic/camera recording from chatter on the set in August, Robach lays out all of the information she had uncovered about Epstein, Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, and Prince Andrew — only to have ABC News refuse to air it:

    Amy Robach, ‘Good Morning America’ Co-Host and Breaking News Anchor at ABC, explains how a witness came forward years ago with information pertaining to Epstein, but Disney-owned ABC News refused to air the material for years. Robach vents her anger in a “hot mic” moment with an off-camera producer, explaining that ABC quashed the story in it’s early stages. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (Now Virginia Guiffre) [alleged Epstein victim]. We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.”

    She continues, “The Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.”

    “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein?” The man had dug himself into both the political and entertainment worlds for decades. His arrest and indictment twelve years earlier had been a sensational story. The creepiness factor alone would have made this perfect fodder for news media outlets, even if Epstein wasn’t as well connected as he obviously was — and as anyone in the media industry would damned well know without being asked.

    It’s worth noting, too, that ABC has yet to air their interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, even though it would have been impactful when the story about his arrest finally did break. Why not air it then? Did ABC News cave to pressure even after the dam finally broke on Epstein?

    One of the more amusing points captured in this video is Robach’s rejection of the suicide determination of Epstein’s death. In chatting with her producers, Robach advanced the theory that the earlier “suicide attempt” was an assault to set up the eventual murder of Epstein. Why? To keep him from talking, Robach believed:

    “So do I think he was killed? 100% Yes, I do…He made his whole living blackmailing people… Yup, there were a lot of men in those planes. A lot of men who visited that island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.”

    Robach repeats a prophetic statement purportedly made by Attorney Brad Edwards “…[T]here will come a day when we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known,” and Disgustedly Robach states “I had it all three years ago.”

    So why didn’t ABC News run with the story at that time? Eventually, the network might try to use NBC’s strategy in dealing with Ronan Farrow and claim that Robach didn’t have enough support for the story to allow it to air. That’s clearly not what Robach thought at the time or in August, and subsequent events make the decision look very suspicious. Either ABC caved to pressure from Buckingham Palace or the elites closer to home, or perhaps like NBC News, worried that they could be living in glass houses. It will be interesting to see which it is — if we ever actually find out.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    However, what's really raising eyebrows is a 2010 report of a party Stephanopoulos attended that Epstein had hosted.

    Page Six reported that the convicted pedophile held an event in honor of Prince Andrew, who was one of the high-profile figures implicated in the scandal, in his New York City townhouse, and on the guestlist were several members of the media, including Stephanopoulos.

    The party took place after Epstein's 13-month prison stint for soliciting prostitutes under 18.

    I for am curious what Robach meant when she said "we had Clinton, we had everything."

    She (Virginia Roberts) told me everything. She had pictures. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. We had Clinton, we had everything.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    CBS News fires staffer who had access to leaked Amy Robach audio


    CBS News has fired a female staffer believed to have had access to the tape of Amy Robach raging against ABC News, Page Six understands.

    We reported on Wednesday that ABC News chiefs discovered a former employee could be behind the leak of the damning footage of Robach slamming the network for shelving her interview with Jeffrey Epstein’s “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Sources told Page Six that a former staffer had access to the footage of Robach as she aired her frustrations over a hot mike — and that employee was now believed to be working at CBS.

    A TV source told us later on Wednesday that the woman was let go from CBS, after ABC execs alerted the rival network.

    ABC sources confirmed to us that they’d informed counterparts at CBS about the staffer “as a courtesy.”

    As we reported, it is not known whether the woman leaked the tape, which was recorded in July, to the Web site Project Veritas, or may have showed it to others who passed it on.

    A CBS spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.

    An ABC source had told us earlier Wednesday that the network was considering its options — but added that it was more difficult because the person no longer works there, but they did, the leak would be a “fireable offense.”

    An ABC rep commented: “We take violations of company policy very seriously, and we’re pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak.”

    In the leaked footage, Robach says Giuffre — who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew by Epstein — “told me everything.” But that ABC “would not put [the interview] on the air.” The network said the report didn’t meet its standards, and on Tuesday a top ABC producer told NPR: “We would never run away from that … We would never kill a story about Prince Andrew. That’s what’s ridiculous on its face. That’s a great story. So if we could do that story, we would have done it!”

    Prince Andrew has denied all Giuffre’s allegations.

    News of the leaker was originally reported by media pundit Yashar Ali.
