ABC News anchor Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic claiming that her network suppressed a bombshell sex trafficking story about Jeffrey Epstein three years ago, according to a video published by right-wing activist group Project Veritas.

The big picture: Project Veritas has been criticized for producing deceptively edited videos that target mainstream media and liberal organizations. However, Robach did not deny the accuracy of the video and said in a statement that she was "caught in a private moment of frustration" after an interview she conducted with one of Epstein's accusers was not aired due to a lack of "sufficient corroborating evidence."

Michael Baden, a forensic pathologist hired by Jeffrey Epstein's brother, told "Fox & Friends" Wednesday that the evidence surrounding the financier and convicted sex offender's death earlier this year "points to homicide rather than suicide."

The big picture: Baden's claim, which directly contradicts the official ruling surrounding Epstein's death, argues that Epstein's injuries were "unusual for suicidal hangings and more consistent with ligature homicidal strangulation."
