Democrats hired James Goldston, who served as president of ABC News when it allegedly quashed reporting of accusations against Jeffrey Epstein, to “produce” the Jan. 6 Committee hearings.
Goldston is expected to be involved in all of the hearings held this month but will particularly be working on the televised primetime hearing Thursday, Fox News congressional reporter Chad Pergram reported. He reportedly joined the committee as an adviser, according to Axios.
The former ABC News president reportedly wants the hearing to catch the attention of Americans who have not followed the timeline and events of the committee’s investigation, Axios reported. The hearings will consist of live witnesses, pre-recorded footage, official White House photographs and some surveillance footage from inside the Capitol.
Goldston was serving as president of ABC News when the network allegedly killed coverage of Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre in 2015. Four years later, Project Veritas released footage of anchor Amy Robach claiming that the network quashed her interview with Giuffre after Buckingham Palace reportedly threatened the network for including Prince Andrew in the story.
“I’ve had this story for three years,” Robach said in the video. “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’m so pissed right now.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter to Goldston on November 17, 2019, expressing his concerns that the network decided to “bury the truth” after Giuffre came forward to reveal her sex trafficking accusations against Epstein, who was arrested in July, 2019 and later died inside his jail cell.
“I am deeply concerned that this victim, in search of justice, went to ABC News, provided information and an interview, and then ABC News chose to bury the truth,” McCarthy wrote.
