Well hot dog! You may have seen the memes and post circulating social media that say "Epstein didn't kill himself." The internet is doing a great job at keeping Epstein alive, and we are not letting his death get swept under the rug.
ABC News anchor Amy Robach actually admitted on camera that she believes the convicted pedophile was murdered and did not commit suicide, as stated in the original reports.
In the video leaked by Project Veritas on Tuesday, you can hear Robach talking about how Epstein made a living on blackmailing powerful people. Therefore, it was in all of their best interests that he "commit suicide."
“So do I think he was killed? A hundred percent, yes I do. He made his whole living blackmailing people.” Roback continued, “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."
“And they made it seem as though he made that ‘suicide attempt’ two weeks earlier. But his lawyers claim that he was roughed up by his cellmate around the neck, that was all like to plant the seed,” she added, “That’s why I really believe it. Like really believe it.”
Federal authorities arrested Epstein on child sex crime charges in July and was jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) until his August 10 death. The disgraced financier was found hanging in his prison cell days after he was removed from the prison’s suicide watch.
However, former New York City medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden made headlines last week for contending Epstein’s autopsy shows more evidence of strangulation than suicide.
“There are multiple — three fractures in the hyoid bone, in the thyroid cartilage that are very unusual for suicide and more indicative of strangulation, homicidal strangulation,” Baden said, “There’s evidence here of homicide that should be investigated, to see if it is or isn’t homicide.”
Project Veritas’s Tuesday video also shows Robach alleging that ABC News killed a bombshell report regarding Epstein, which also implicated former President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew.
Robach says of the purported report: “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, ‘Whose Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is, this is a stupid story.’ Then, the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will, that we, that also quashed the story.”
“It was unbelievable what we had. Clinton, we had everything,” she adds.
Here’s ABC’s response to a Project Veritas video of Amy Robach expressing frustration that her Jeffrey Epstein piece didn’t run.

An ABC spokesperson said, “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and six-part podcast that will air in the new year."
