The surprising trial of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, with its myriad new revelations in regards to the wealthy and highly effective males who allegedly partook of his underage ladies on his “Pedophile Island” or “Lolita Express”… is not going to occur.
Epstein’s suicide — or regardless of the true trigger seems to be — could have protected most of his extraordinarily excessive profile co-conspirators in the intervening time; definitely Slick Willie and Teflon Don aren’t being held to the fireplace proper now.
However there’s one who was outed years in the past who hasn’t been in a position to slip out of the highlight of suspicion. And for some purpose, Prince Andrew believed he may satisfyingly reply questions on his affiliation with Epstein!
Associated: ABC Information Killed Epstein Story Years In the past
In a landmark “no holds barred interview” on BBC Newsnight, the Duke of York sat down with reporter Emily Maitlis and tried to defend himself — with quite disastrous outcomes!
Listed below are among the lowlights from the terrible interview…
I Do Not Recall…
Andrew’s first protection? Deny until you die!
Accuser Virginia Giuffre (previously Roberts) claims in a lawsuit that Epstein and affiliate Ghislaine Maxwell compelled her to have intercourse with Prince Andrew thrice, as soon as when she was simply 17 years previous.
However the Prince isn’t simply denying the intercourse — he says they by no means met!
“I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever. It just never happened.”
Duke. Dude. There are photographs of the 2 of you collectively!
Yeah, about that… He additionally says:
“I have absolutely no memory of that photograph ever being taken.”
Nicely, fortunately picture proof isn’t subjective. We will all see it for ourselves whether or not he claims no reminiscence of it or not. It’s not like he can say if he doesn’t bear in mind it, it merely isn’t actual… proper?
“I don’t remember that photograph ever being taken. I don’t remember going upstairs in the house because that photograph was taken upstairs and I am not entirely convinced that… I mean that is… that is what I would describe as me in that… in that picture but I can’t… we can’t be certain as to whether or not that’s my hand on her whatever it is, left… left side.”
OMG, is he severe?? He’s implying this was some photoshop work? A deep pretend? This pic has been round for YEARS. Does he need us to imagine the individuals who made Jurassic Park had been enlisted to pretend this picture or one thing??
If The Deodorant Doesn’t Match, You Should Acquit?
In one of many oddest defenses we’ve ever heard, Prince Andrew makes an attempt to discredit Virginia’s story by pointing to a particular assertion she made saying he “sweated profusely” once they danced collectively.
He claims that was not possible — as a result of he was bodily unable to sweat on the time! Severely! He says:
“I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenalin in the Falkland’s War when I was shot at and I simply… it was almost impossible for me to sweat.”
Nicely, that looks as if a very simple assertion to disprove. Oh, besides, he acquired higher. He continues:
“It’s only because I have done a number of things in the recent past that I am starting to be able to do that again.”
Wow. That could be a heck of a protection.
Clearly over the previous few months he’s been sweating the accusations of his misdeeds along with his previous pal Jeffrey.
In a very insulting little bit of spin, Prince Andrew tries to reframe his total friendship with Epstein. He says:
“It would be, to some extent, a stretch to say that as it were we were close friends. I mean, we were friends because of other people. And I had a lot of opportunity to go to the United States, but I didn’t have much time with him.”
Sure, we all know all of our minor acquaintances invite us to remain at their houses on a semi-regular foundation. Come on now!
BTW, Andrew says he met Epstein via their mutual good friend Ghislaine Maxwell, who –let’s not overlook — stands accused of being the appropriate hand lady to some intercourse trafficking of minors. We will solely think about how Andrew’s friendship together with her will devolve into “barely know her” territory because the water she’s in will get hotter.
The Queen Believes Him??
Regardless of the incredulity shared by seemingly everybody else who watched the interview, the Royal Household is seemingly firmly backing their black sheep.
In line with a Buckingham Palace talking to the London Night Normal, Her Majesty is not going to be commenting publicly on the matter however that she and the opposite senior royals “back and believe” him “100%”.
The supply says:
“His Royal Highness has the backing of the Queen and his close family, they believe in him totally and think he has shown strength for telling the truth and admitting errors he has made.”
Wow. Is it simply us or is that this the final word model of the Household Feud group clapping and shouting “GOOD ANSWER” after the worst sport present reply of all time?
BTW, right here’s the complete interview if you wish to watch and decide Prince Andrew’s credibility for your self:
Now if solely another Epstein friends can be assured sufficient to provide interviews about their affiliation with a person convicted of getting intercourse with a 14-year-old and charged with trafficking younger ladies to many others…
