Megyn Kelly just posted her interview with fired CBS staffer Ashley Bianco, and we’ll say up front that this is looking really, really bad for CBS and ABC:
My interview with the former ABC staffer accused of being behind the leak of the Amy Robach tape: YOU DECIDE: Megyn Kelly – YouTube https://t.co/uP06wTKc6F

Right up front in the interview, Bianco says she didn’t leak the clip:
Megyn Kelly: Did you leak the tape?
Ashley Bianco: I did not
Kelly: Not to anyone?
Bianco: No, never.
Kelly: At any time?
She does admit making the clip, however. But she goes on to explain to Kelly that it was part of her job to make these sorts of clips and she did it all the time:
Kelly: Did you make a clip of the moment?
Bianco: I did, but I saved it in the internal system.
And Bianco says everyone was “freaked out” at what Amy Robach was saying on the hot-mic, which was been broadcast to all of ABC’s affiliates:
Ashley Bianco says everyone in the office was "freaked out" by what Robach was saying about Epstein and that the video was in internal system anyone could have DL'd it from
She has been summarily fired by CBS only 4 days after starting her job
This is a complete disgrace https://t.co/PTM9fkwNHb

This means that ABC wrongly outed her to CBS and then CBS fired her over something she did not do.

You know, there may just be a media story here:

Dare we say a “full blown scandal” even:
This just became a full-blown scandal.
Of course, media is going to circle the wagons. https://t.co/OotvyZ1cdW

James O’Keefe is also saying Bianco isn’t the source:

CBS needs to make this right:
Good job, Megyn.
I feel so bad for her. She obviously didn’t do anything wrong. CBS was wrong for firing her. https://t.co/DrQuBiKtjW

I don't see how CBS cannot give Ashley Bianco her job back. https://t.co/ohf2rhBOhf
