Prince Andrew Is Reportedly Ignoring Requests To Be Interviewed About His Friendship With Jeffrey Epstein
I hope that at least one of The Queen’s 22 quarantined servants is good at playing dumb when she asks, “So, what’s new in the news today?“. Because she’s not going to be very happy to learn that the COVID-19 lockdown can’t lock down media outlets from reporting on the dumb decisions of her perpetually embarrassing son, Prince Andrew. According to The Daily Mail, Andrew just found a way to look even guiltier than he already does. A round of polite British applause for Andrew.
Right after Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell last August, Andrew tried to play it off like he didn’t really know Jeffrey Epstein, which was changed to Andrew knowing Epstein but not being that close, to Andrew claiming they were pals but that Andrew broke up with Epstein. In all of that, Andrew volunteered to work with the police investigating Jeffrey Epstein, and promised he’d be as helpful as possible. But it seems like Andrew isn’t exactly running to pick up the phone when the FBI calls. David Boies is a lawyer representing more than a dozen of Epstein’s victims (one of which is Virginia Giuffre), and he tells The Daily Mail that Prince Andrew has ignored three formal requests pertaining to the Epstein investigation.
David Boies claimed Andrew has “not been prepared to co-operate.”
“We’ve made at least three formal written attempts sent to his address in London and also to his lawyers in the past few months.”
Back in January, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman gave a press conference outside Jeffrey Epstein’s house and accused Prince Andrew of doing what he does best – aka nothing – in regards to the Epstein investigation. Geoffrey’s exact words were that Andrew has provided, “zero cooperation.”
David adds that he understands it’s difficult for a lawyer to tell their client to do something they don’t want to do, but David isn’t sure why Andrew continues to ignore calls for a sit-down. David speculates that it’s probably because Andrew is surrounded by people who are giving him bad advice. David also thinks that’s a stupid move, because Andrew is a high-profile person, and he’s gaining a reputation as someone who won’t cooperate with the authorities. There is a chance that Andrew can play dumb for the rest of his life and pretend his phone battery died. But David says he can’t run from accountability forever.
“If I avoid extradition, do I really want to have this hanging over my head and my family’s head for the rest of my life? Do I want my epitaph to be I succeeded in escaping justice?”
He’s not wrong. There’s only so many times you can pretend the feds haven’t contacted you. Most recently, Andrew’s side of things was that he’s totally been in contact with the authorities, and that he’s so shocked and appalled that people are saying he’s been uncooperative! But also, the rumors are true, and hasn’t been interviewed by anyone about all of this.
Huh? I wonder why Andrew hasn’t been interviewed yet. Right now, it’s probably safe to say that an interview hasn’t happened, due to the COVID-19 lockdown. But eventually we’re going to come out of quarantine, and what then? Andrew can only hide for so long before someone tracks him down. Princess Bea better thoroughly inspect all the presents at her big fancy wedding (date TBA). Because the FBI agent is almost desperate enough to sneak in an agent dressed as a toaster.
