Robach made the comments to her producer sometime in late August, around the same time NPR released a story alleging that ABC News squashed a story about Epstein in order to protect the rich and powerful. Epstein was a mysterious billionaire and convicted pedophile who allegedly ran an illegal and prolific underage prostitution ring catering to the ultra-wealthy and government officials from around the world. He has been accused of pimping and recruiting young girls and forcing them to have sex with hundreds of men. His private island is where most of the alleged rapes occurred as well as on his airplane, notoriously nicknamed “The Lolita Express.”
“I’ve had the story for three years. 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 said exasperatingly to her producer.
“Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways,” she said regarding the British Royal Family. Virginia Roberts Guiffre has long alleged that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew while underage on multiple occasions. The two are photographed together, but the Royal family has long denied these claims.
“We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate or Will, I think that also squashed the story,” she said in reference to Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William.
“And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated because of the claims. (Roberts Giuffre) 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 out, to no avail,” Robach continued. “And now it’s all coming out and it’s like ‘these new revelations.’ And I freaking had on all of it. I’m so p****d right now like every day I get more and more p****d. Because I’m just like ‘oh my god, we…what we had was unreal’. Other women backing it up… Brad Edwards the Attorney, three years ago, saying like there will come a day where we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known. I had it all three years ago.”
It has been alleged that Dershowitz also had illicit ties to Epstein.
Epstein reportedly died in July via suicide in a New York federal prison. However, the circumstances surrounding his death were very suspicious — sleeping guards, broken cameras, seemingly physically impossible suicide with a paper thin bed sheet while on suicide watch. Robach says she absolutely believes he was killed by someone.
“Yes I do. Because made his whole living blackmailing people. Yeah 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,” Robach said.
“I knew immediately,” Robach said regarding his death and her belief he was killed. “And then they made it seem as though he made that suicide attempt two weeks earlier. His lawyers claimed 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.”
RESPONSE FROM ABC
When the Project Veritas video was made public, ABC and Robach released this statement via Robach.
Robach: “I was caught in a private moment of frustration. … In the years since no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein”
