Newly leaked footage shows US TV anchor Amy Robach complaining that editors “quashed” a story about paedophile Jeffrey Epstein due to threats from the Royal Family.
Amy Robach is seen in the clip griping that her interview with an alleged victim of Epstein and Prince Andrew never made it to air.
Ms Giuffre, 35, claims she was abused by Epstein and was ordered to have sex with powerful men including Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.
In court documents, she said she was forced to have sex with the British royal on three separate occasions while she was under the legal age of consent.
Of course, Prince Andrew has denied all allegations against him. But obviously anyone capable of such an act is quite capable of lying and very likely to do so, particularly someone in such high stature as Prince Andrew.
The following excerpt is from the BBC and transcribes what exactly is said in the leaked video:
“I’ve had this story for three years. I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts,” says Robach, speaking to someone off-camera.
“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.’
“Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.
“We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will.
“That also quashed the story,” the host of ABC’s 20/20 programme added.
In a statement to BBC News a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said “this is a matter for ABC”.
Robach also says that the interview included allegations against former US President Bill Clinton.
“We had everything,” she continues. “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.”
We’ll leave you to make your own minds up about Prince Andrew, but it seems clear to me what the truth is.
