Kevin McCarthy Asks: Why Did ABC Kill The Story On Jeffrey Epstein?
We know Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself, but we still don’t know why ABC killed the story on the child-sex-trafficker years ago.
A recent video released by Project Veritas showed ABC’s Amy Robach ranting that that the network killed her interview with Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre. In her frustration, the anchor admitted that the network had been threatened by power players, including Buckingham Palace, after they found out Prince Andrew was a part of the story.
Now, Republicans in Congress are demanding answers.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter Sunday to ABC News questioning the motivation for killing the Epstein story in 2015.
Megyn Kelly posted an exclusive copy of the letter on her instagram. The letter addressed to ABC News President James Goldston reads, “I am deeply concerned that this victim, in search of justice, went to ABC News, provided information and an interview, and then ABC News chose to bury the truth.”
McCarthy did not hold back.
“ABC News’s initial response and subsequent actions reveal their priority is to identify and hold accountable the individual who released the video to the public,” the letter reads. “We believe that uncovering the source of the information is incomparably less important than the possibility of exposing the source of a human trafficking operation.”
ABC News has been silent since the firing of the alleged whistleblower who leaked the Robach video to Project Veritas.
After the video, ABC and Amy Robach walked back comments, saying that the reason the story was killed was because it lacked sufficient evidence and did not meet ABC’s (non-existent) editorial standards.
Maybe the increased pressure from Congress will get us the answers we deserve about the obvious media coverup surrounding Jeffrey Epstein.
