Amy Robach, ‘Good Morning America’ Co-Host and Breaking News Anchor at ABC, explains how a witness came forward years ago with information pertaining to Epstein, but Disney-owned ABC News refused to air the material for years. Robach vents her anger in a “hot mic” moment with an off-camera producer, explaining that ABC quashed the story in it’s early stages. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (Now Virginia Guiffre) [alleged Epstein victim]. We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.”
ABC News has reported Epstein’s cellmate was removed before his death, that the cameras monitoring him weren’t working, the guards watching him had been overworked and Epstein might not have been on suicide watch despite attempting suicide weeks earlier.
“Put all of this together and you’ve got some real questions to be asked here,” Wecht said.
And as for charges that Wecht is putting a conspiracy out there, he says to look at the facts.
Attorney General William Barr said in a statement Saturday that he was “appalled” to learn of the death and the Inspector General would open an investigation into the circumstances of his death. The FBI is also investigating.
“Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,” he said. “In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
The wealthy financier was transported to a nearby hospital.
