Someone’s fibbing about what ABC News anchor Amy Robach said on the leaked video that went viral yesterday.
That video, released by Project Veritas, shows Robach in a detailed complaint that she had the story about deceased Deep State pervert Jeffrey Epstein nailed down three years ago, but ABC refused to broadcast it.
After the video went public, ABC and Robach quickly said the story wasn’t verified to the network’s satisfaction.
But Robach’s words and demeanor on the video suggest otherwise.
“We Had Everything”
Epstein, recall, was under federal indictment for sex-trafficking girls as young as 14 years old when he was found dead in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. The city coroner said Epstein hanged himself. Others, including Robach, think he was killed to shut him up about the rich, powerful men to whom he trafficked girls.
Epstein, his chief victim Virgina Giuffre alleges, was blackmailing the men, and Robach repeats that in the tape.
But that’s not all Robach said in speaking to an off-camera colleague on Good Morning America, a conversation, Project Veritas noted, that occurred just after NPR’s David Folkenflik published a piece criticizing ABC and other media outlets for ignoring the Epstein story.
“I’ve had this story for three years,” Robach began. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts [Giuffre]. 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.’”
As well, Robach said Buckingham “Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.” Epstein’s attorney, Alan Dershowitz, Folkenflik reported, said he pressured ABC not to run the piece. Giuffre also implicated Dershowitz.
Um, we were so afraid we wouldn’t be able interview Kate and Will that, we, that also quashed the story. And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated in the story cause of the planes. She 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. It was unbelievable what we had. 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, I’m so pissed right now.
Like everyday, I get more and more pissed because I’m just like, Oh, my God…. What we had was unreal.
Other women backing it up. Hey, yep….
I had it all three years ago.
After that, the off-camera colleague mentioned the “high-profile people” to whom Epstein was connected. One of them, famously, was former President Bill Clinton, who flew on the Lolita Express 26 times.
“Well then I got a little concerned about why I couldn’t get it on,” Robach replied.
“So do I think he was killed?” Robach continued. “100 perent. Yes, I do. Because he made his whole living blackmailing people. Yep. 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.”
“I knew immediately,” Robach firmly said. “And they made it seem as though he made that suicide attempt two weeks earlier,” Robach said, emphasizing her point with air quotes. “But his lawyers claim that he was roughed up by his cellmate around the neck, that was all like to plant the seed. And then. That’s why I really believe it. Like, really believe it.”
Robach also explained that she had detailed information about the involvement of Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman accused of serving as Epsteins’ procurer. Robach said Maxwell might get whacked, too.
She knows. She knows she should. She knows she should be careful. Well, she was his, like she went out and recruited all these girls.
She should watch her back…. I’d have like security guards all around me.
After the video went viral, ABC’s PR ministry moved into high gear. “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story,” the network claimed, adding it would broadcast a two-hour documentary and lengthy podcast next year.
“I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts [Giuffre] didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations,” Robach said. “My comments about Prince Andrew and … Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private island were in reference to … her allegations — not what ABC News had verified…. While I was disappointed it didn’t air, didn’t meet our standards.”
But what Robach said on the air in an unguarded moment can’t be squared with either statement: “We had everything. I tried for three years to get it on to no avail…. I freaking had all of it.”
