a letter they urged the network to explain why it shelved an interview a few years back with an alleged victim of convicted pedophile jeffrey epstein what appears to have been presented to mr obama is 1st hand evidence of human trafficking i am deeply concerned that this victim in search of justice went to see news provided information and an interview and then a.b.c. news chose to burry the truth it is imperative that the public be assured newsroom decisions regarding exposing human trafficking are not tempered by financial interests or outside forces a video recently surfaced of a.b.c. host amy robach complaining that the interview had been dropped lawmakers want her to shut light on who prevented the story from running have a story for 3 years i've had to say if you would for any roberts then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about prince andrew and threatened us a 1000000 different ways she told me everything she had pictures everything she was in hiding for 12 years making history come out we convinced her to talk to us it
