Child Rape Stories Are Too ‘Stupid’ for ABC News to Cover

[Roberts] told me everything. She had pictures. She had everything. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton. We had everything. I tried for three years to get it on, to no avail, and now it’s all coming out. And it’s, like, these ‘new revelations,’ and I freaking had all of it. I am so pissed right now. … What we had was unreal.”

The story that ABC News told Robach was too “stupid” to cover was both appalling and important. Epstein, an extremely wealthy money manager with close relations to many of the top establishment figures in our country — most notably Bill and Hillary Clinton — had allegedly sexually abused scores of underage girls. He was indicted for it in 2007. However, with assistance from top-flight lawyers such as Ken Starr, Jay Lefkowitz and Alan Dershowitz, Epstein negotiated an insanely light 13-month sentence with former U.S. Attorney and later Trump Labor Secretary Alex Acosta.

The Epstein case resonates as a shining example of the growing chasm between our society’s elites and everyone else. If the super wealthy and super connected can even get away with raping young girls with almost no punishment, our system is beyond broken.
