The following article, ABC News Anchor Caught On Hot Mic Stating Network Suppressed Epstein Story For Years, was first published on Flag And Cross.
ABC News anchor Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic admitting that she and her network had the story about Jeffrey Epstein and his pedophilia ring years ago, but the network refused to run the story because they were terrified of making very powerful people angry.
Here’s more from TheBlaze:
Robach is seen and heard making the comments in a video released by Project Veritas, which shows her talking on a hot mic on an ABC News set in August about how frustrating it was for her to see the Epstein story blow up when she had all the information three years before.
“It was unbelievable what we had,” Robach said. “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.”
Robach said she had an interview with alleged Epstein victim Virginia Roberts, which included allegations and details about the involvement of Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and Alan Dershowitz. She was told that viewers wouldn’t be interested because they wouldn’t know who Epstein was.
“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. First of all, I was told ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.'”
Robach went on to say the British royal family put pressure on the network by threatening them over the allegations that would arise against Prince Andrew. Scared of losing access, the network then complied.
“We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will that we — that also quashed the story. And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated in it because of the planes. She told me everything. She had pictures, she had everything,” Robach said.

In light of the video being released, both Robach and ABC News released responses. Robach stated that the interview didn’t meet ABC News’ editorial standards and that claims the network never told her to stop pursuing the story.
“As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration,” the statement said. “I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards.”
The network responded by saying they never told Robach not to pursue the story and claimed to be working on a documentary and podcast on Epstein due out next year.
