Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
James O’Keefe (an old friend of mine from college) has released a doozy of a video this morning, maybe one of his most explosive yet. In it, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is clearly exasperated, discussing how coverage of Jeffrey Epstein was pushed under the rug:

I’m in the middle of Ronan Farrow’s new book on Harvey Weinstein (which I plan to review for Ricochet) but the similarities between the two stories are glaring. In both instances, a major news network brushed serious allegations of sexual misconduct under the rug for the sake of a powerful man.
One of the least-covered elements of the Farrow book is how the Clintons played into the coverup, and how Hillary and her henchmen bullied Farrow and NBC News into burying the story on behalf of Weinstein. In the ABC story O’Keefe has dug up, again, the Clintons play a major role, with Robach claiming they had evidence against Bill Clinton in the Epstein case as well.
Perhaps even as damaging as Robach’s hot mic moment is the ABC News statement that followed,
OK the video was one thing but this statement is the real bombshell. This is "they have a gun to my family's head" levels of revisionism. https://t.co/WbT4S5r05C

With both Farrow and Robach’s statements about Clinton, one might hope that the one-two punch might actually force the toxic duo to face down their many skeletons. Robach quotes an attorney saying “One day we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known,” but so too should we recognize that Hillary Clinton is certainly the biggest and most powerful enabler of sexual abuse.
Before the media recognizes this, and admits to the role they’ve played in the coverups themselves, they can stuff their hashtag campaigns and fainting couches about Donald Trump.
Just as I hit publish on this post, this came across my Twitter feed. Whoooo boy.
Reminder that ABC News' George Stephanopoulos attended a party that Jeffrey Epstein threw for Prince Andrew, where "everyone at the table" was sucking up to the alleged predator prince https://t.co/olkHKYtOSF pic.twitter.com/sRaXSi3dbf
