UPDATE: LIVE INTERVIEW OF PROJECT VERITAS JAMES O’KEEFE
According to a video released by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, ABC uncovered allegations against dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein three years ago, but the story was buried after threats and pressure from management.
“BREAKING: [ABC News] anchor [Amy Robach] caught on ‘hot mic’ in August disgustedly exposing networks decision to strategically spike bombshell investigation into Jefferey Esptein over THREE YEARS AGO. Says what she had was ‘unbelievable,’” O’Keefe Tweeted, attaching a video of the incident.
In the video, Robach bemoans the fact that all of the recent information which has come to light about Epstein, his connection to the British Royal Family, former president Bill Clinton, and others involved in the scandal, was in the possession of ABC News, but never aired. In other words, it was covered up for three years.
“I’ve had the story for three years,” Robach said. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air.”
Roberts was allegedly held as a sex slave on Epstein’s private island, and accused both he and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, of forcing her to perform sex acts on them.
Robach listed the reasons why the network chose to spike the story.
“First of all, I was told ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein,’” she said. “‘No one knows who that is.’ ‘That’s a stupid story.’”
Of course, everyone who follows political news knows who Jeffrey Epstein is. Three years ago, when ABC spiked the story, Epstein was a hot topic of conversation, as he was known to pal around with Clinton. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton was running for president.
“Then the Palace found out that we had the whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways,” Robach said. “Um, we were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will that we – that also quashed the story.”
“Kate and Will” is a reference to Kate Middleton and Prince William.
“And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated in it ’cause of the planes,” Robach continued. “[Virginia Roberts] told me everything. She had pictures, she had everything. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. Um, it was unbelievable what we had – [Bill] Clinton, we had everything.”
Robach complained that she tried for three years to get the story out, but that her efforts were stifled. She expressed frustration that the information she had first is now public.
In a further video released by Project Veritas, Robach said that “there will come a day when we will realize Jeffery Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known.”
Epstein died in an alleged suicide by hanging in his Manhattan Correctional Center jail cell on Aug. 10. He was being held without bail, awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
There has been a great deal of speculation about Epstein’s death. Dr. Michael Baden, a forensic pathologist and former New York City medical examiner, said that Epstein’s injuries were consistent with a homicidal strangulation, not a suicidal hanging. He witnessed the Epstein autopsy.
Project Veritas, activated a “Dead Man’s Switch” before the release of today’s bombshell, saying that it had been threatened by “very powerful people” about releasing the story.
