Leaked tape: ABC News killed an interview with an accuser of Jeffrey Epstein

News of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes was prematurely quashed by ABC News network executives, according to reporter Amy Robach in a video released by Project Veritas, a right-wing activist group.

In the video, news anchor Robach complains to a producer that she had convinced Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s victims, to speak on the record about Epstein, his sex trafficking scheme, and those involved in it, including Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, and Prince Andrew. But she says that ABC declined to run the story to keep access to the British Royal Family.

“We would not put [the Epstein story] on the air. First of all, I was told, ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story,’” she says on the tape. “Then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.”

Referring to Kate Middleton and Prince William and the network’s desire to interview the pair, she said, “We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will that … also quashed the story.” And she added, “It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton — we had everything. I tried for three years to get it on to no avail and now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new revelations. And I freaking had all of it. I’m so pissed right now. Every day I get more and more pissed. … What we had was unreal.”
