The person who leaked a video of an ABC anchor lamenting that her network killed her story exposing pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and the Bill Clinton connection is sounding off on the controversy in a letter.
“I sit right here with you all in complete shock,” said the letter posted by Project Veritas, which published the video this week. “I, like many, are at a loss for words on how this has been handled.

Innocent people that have absolutely nothing to do with this are being hunted down as if we are all a sport. I challenge all of you to actually look inwards and remember why this company engages in journalism.

Meanwhile, CBS News fired staffer Ashley Bianco, who previously had worked at ABC, and was accused of having access to the Robach video. Apparently, ABC’s complaint to CBS triggered her dismissal.
Bianco has denied being the source of the video, and Project Veritas has confirmed it was not her.
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released the video as the latest in its series on establishment-media bias. Last month, he released secretly recorded video clips documenting CNN’s political bias, including a death wish for President Trump.
“We had … Clinton, we had everything,” Robach says on the hot mic video in an apparent off-air discussion with other employees.
“Now it’s all coming out … I freaking had all of it,” Robach says.
Robach explains she interviewed a woman who had the courage to come forward about Epstein.
“She had pictures. She had everything. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out.” [RELATED: Ilhan Omar Breaks More Campaign Finance Laws by Paying for Her Lover’s Trips]
Epstein, a financier whose acquaintances included Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, had been convicted in 2008 of procuring underage girls for prostitution and soliciting. He got off with a sentence of 13 months with work-release provisions.
