ABC News confirmed they are investigating who leaked footage of Amy Robach on a hot mic discussing Jeffrey Epstein to investigative journalism outlet Project Veritas.
During what appears to be a commercial break, Robach told her producer the network refused to air her exclusive interview with Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Robert Giuffre from three years ago. Robach claimed she had the entire story on Epstein and pushed to air the footage, yet the network shelved her interview.
According to journalist Yashar Ali, ABC News executives believe the “whistleblower” is a former employee, now employed at CBS News.
“I’m told that ABC News executives have informed their counterparts at CBS News that this person accessed the footage of Robach. It’s unclear if CBS News plans on taking any action against the employee,” Ali says.
Ali notes that just because the CBS employee accessed the file does not mean he or she directly leaked the footage to Project Veritas. Regardless, ABC is taking this leaked footage seriously, saying that by leaking footage the “whistleblower” violated company policy.
“We take violations of company policy very seriously, and we’re pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak,” a spokesperson for ABC News told Ali.
Ironic how the mainstream media cherry picks which type of whistleblowers they like. They’re all on board with ones aiming to impeach President Trump, yet investigating those who reveal information about an accused pedophile.
According to sources familiar with the matter, CBS News has fired the staff member that leaked the footage during his time at ABC News, Ali reports.
The woman accused of leaking the video is Ashley Bianco. In an exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly, Bianco claims she clipped the video for purposes of gossip, however, she did not leak the footage to Project Veritas.
