Project Veritas leader James O'Keefe said his insider within ABC does not know who specifically spiked the story, and is encouraging others within the organization to reach out to him and shed more light on the situation. "Personally, the most troubling part to me is Epstein's usage of high-profile, high-priced lawyers to intimidate news outlets..." We convinced her to come out.

"We take violations of company policy very seriously, and we're pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak", said the statement. We convinced her to talk to us. "It was unbelievable what we had, Clinton, we had everything".

It is yet unclear who leaked the video directly to Project Veritas, since ABC News has only identified who accessed the video, and not how the chain of possession led to its publication. I'm so pissed right now. The network anxious about potential fall out because Roberts claimed in her interview with Robach that she was forced to perform sexual acts on Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II. We would not put it on the air.

"This was such a massive missed opportunity to have the woman, Virginia Giuffre, who turned out to be the chief accuser of one of the wost sexual predators of the modern era - a man who routinely abused young women - having her on camera, detailing on-the-record allegations", Kurtz said on "The Story" Wednesday.

CNN's Brian Stelter on Tuesday used video evidence that ABC had buried a story on Jeffrey Epstein to argue that conservatives had weaponized the video to harm the media. "This is a stupid story". I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn't air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC's editorial standards about her allegations. She added that her comments about Andrew and Clinton were merely referencing allegations Guiffre had made, not anything independently verified by ABC, and that "no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein".

Robach was caught on mic during the summer of 2019, when the Epstein story was hot.

While her allegations received widespread attention, some news organizations have treated elements of her story with caution because the list of prominent men she accused was long and her allegations hard to independently confirm.

While being recorded, Robach said the executives were anxious that airing the allegations against Epstein, who was convicted in 2008 for sexually abusing under age girls, would jeopardize the network's upcoming interview with Prince Harry and Kate Middleton. The interview itself, while I was disappointed it didn't air, didn't meet our standards.

"At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story".
