“The Epstein story didn’t kill itself,” Colin Kalmbacher of Law and Crime reported on Tuesday. In 2015, ABC had “an extensively-documented story on Epstein’s elite global pedophilia and sex-trafficking organization–including information that appeared to implicate a former U.S. president.” As Kalmbacher noted, ABC “decided to bury the story” declaring it “unfit to broadcast.”
The story was a project of ABC anchor Amy Robach, who lamented, “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. Like, every day I get more and more pissed, ’cause I’m just like, oh my God. What we had was unreal. Other women backing it up.”
As Fox News reported, Robach was caught on a hot mike saying “It was unbelievable what we had, Clinton, we had everything.” That would be former president Bill Clinton, and Robach’s lamentations were captured on a video by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, which Amy Robach authenticated.
Ryan Saavedra’s Daily Wire story cited Conchita Sarnoff, who told Shannon Bream of Fox news that Bill Clinton was a guest of Epstein’s 27 times. There were underage girls on the plane, Sarnoff revealed, and the president would not agree to an interview. Sarnoff concluded that the former president “is not telling the truth.”
Over at National Review, Zachary Evans recalled that Jeffrey Epstein “had previously been indicted for sexually abusing underage girls in Florida in 2008” and was again indicted in July on charges of sex trafficking and abusing underage girls. The new allegations against Epstein were revealed in June by Julie Brown of the Miami Herald, who gathered testimony from “80 alleged victims of Epstein who said they were part of a sex trafficking ring run by the financier.”
ABC News told Newsweek “we have never stopped investigating the story” and a two-hour documentary and 6-part podcast that “will air in the new year.” Epstein, Newsweek’s Tufayel Ahmed noted, “was found dead in his New York prison cell in August, which meant he could not be tried or convicted.” To paraphrase Colin Kalmbacher, some believe that Jeffrey Epstein “didn’t kill himself.”
Those include Amy Robach who said on the O’Keefe video that she is “100 percent” certain Epstein was murdered. He “made his living blackmailing people,” Robach said, and “a lot of powerful men were involved.” As CNBC reported in August, Epstein’s lawyer Reid Weingarten testified that his client’s injuries are “far more consistent with assault than suicide.” Epstein expired on August 10, and the autopsy revealed broken bones in his neck.
Jeffrey Epstein was as dead as Vincent Foster, another alleged suicide, but there could be no doubt that ABC killed the story of Epstein’s sexual predations. As this unfolds, Ronan Farrow’s new book Catch and Kill reveals how NBC killed the story on Harvey Weinstein.
As John Gage noted in the Washington Examiner last month, former NBC producer Rick McHugh is on record that some stories were killed at the request of Weinstein himself. NBC bosses Noah Oppenheim and Andrew Lack, McHugh said, “behaved more like members of Weinstein’s PR team than the journalists they claim to be. Thanks to them, a leading national news organization, in broad daylight and with zero remorse, abdicated its single greatest responsibility — to relentlessly pursue and tell the truth.”
According to Ashley Collman at Insider, in his bid to kill Farrow’s story, “Harvey Weinstein reached out to his good friend Hillary Clinton.” In similar style, anybody could be forgiven for believing that Bill Clinton is the primary reason ABC covered up the Epstein story. As reporters attempt to pry off the lid, another Clinton crony is getting into the act.
