As Twitchy readers know, Project Veritas released video from ABC of Amy Robach clearly being frustrated that her Jeffrey Epstein piece didn’t run three years ago.

ABC and Robach responded to the release:

No one ever told her not to report on Epstein.

Alrighty then.

From Hollywood Reporter:

In a statement provided first to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC News responded: “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and six-part podcast that will air in the new year.”

Robach, who co-anchors 20/20 and reports for Good Morning America, provided a more extensive response explaining her comments, which she did not intend to be aired.

“As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration,” she said. “I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations. My comments about Prince Andrew and her allegation that she had seen Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private island were in reference to what Virginia Roberts said in that interview in 2015. I was referencing her allegations — not what ABC News had verified through our reporting.”

Hrm.

Amy, blink twice if you’re being held against your will.

Right?

We totally believe her.

Totally.

A lot of that going around.
