Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “US Congress cracks down on ABC News for ‘Epstein coverup’, demands to know WHO killed the story and WHY”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In his letter to ABC News president James Goldston, McCarthy demanded the names of those involved in the decision not to run the story, as well as their motives. In a video clip leaked earlier this month, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is caught on a “hot mic” speaking to colleagues about the alleged cover-up.

“I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts...we would not put it on the air,” Robach says about the woman who now three years later publicly accuses Epstein of using her as a sex slave, and pimping her out to his powerful friends, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.

The network rushed to defend its coverage (or lack of thereof), clamming that the story was killed only because their journalists could not corroborate the details – and immediately launched a hunt for the whistleblower who leaked the video to conservative group Project Veritas. McCarthy’s letter, signed by several GOPS and obtained by journalist Megyn Kelly, slammed ABC’s damage control of the situation.

We believe that uncovering the source of the information is incomparably less important than the possibility of exposing the source of a human trafficking operation.

The lawmakers also want to know what additional information ABC executives may have learned about Epstein following the first interview with the victim – and whether they informed authorities of it at any point.
