Britain's Prince Andrew has so far provided federal prosecutors and the FBI "zero cooperation" in interviews regarding Jeffrey Epstein, prosecutor Geoffrey Berman said at a news conference Monday.

Why it matters: After stepping away from his royal duties in November, the prince said he was willing to help law enforcement investigations into Epstein and possible co-conspirators.

Context: During an interview with the BBC in November, Andrew denied having a sexual relationship with one of Epstein’s accusers, as she has claimed.
