Prince Andrew ‘must cooperate’ over Epstein after Ghislaine Maxwell charged - BBC Newsnight
BBC Newsnight
Sir Keir Starmer says Prince Andrew must cooperate with the FBI over his links to Jeffrey Epstein. But what should this cooperation look like? We ask both sides of the Atlantic. Subscribe to our channel here:

Labour leader and former Director of Public Prosecutions Sir Keir Starmer has said Prince Andrew should cooperate with the FBI over his relationship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.
The Duke of York, who denies any allegations against him, has publicly stated that he has cooperated on at least three occasions. The US has also stated it seeking voluntary cooperation from the Duke of York. So what should happen now?
The Duke of York is also not a target of the investigation.
At the start of July 2020, Ms Maxwell was charged with six counts of sexual exploitation, grooming and enticing minors - as young as fourteen - to engage in illegal sex acts with Epstein, assisting Epstein, trafficking the minors across states and on occasion taking part herself in the sexual abuse.
Ms Maxwell has previously denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's alleged sexual misconduct.
The charges relate to the years from 1994 to 1997 and include some allegations relating to an alleged victim in London.
Ms Maxwell is a friend of Prince Andrew - when Newsnight interviewed him last year, he told us how the socialite introduced him in 1999 to Epstein.
The Duke of York has denied any allegations of impropriety.
Epstein died in prison on 10 August as he awaited, without the chance of bail, his trial on sex trafficking charges.
US Correspondent David Grossman reports the latest from Washington DC.
In the studio, Emily Maitlis is joined by the former Chief Prosecutor for the North West of England, Nazir Afzal, and from Michigan Conchita Sarnoff - the first person to make public the friendship between Prince Andrew and Epstein, in 2010.

    So let me get this right. Maxwell publishes the list as it was initially planned by the Israeli intelligence services and she gets to walk free as an appreciation of her cooperation. Wow!! This is clever.. Not only she abused all these girls but she is allowed to keep her wealth and just walk way. Truly evil plan.

    How is Andrew ' just a witness' when there are direct allegations against him, photographic evidence and corroborating witnesses to say he was with Robert's. One saw them engaged in sexual activities on St James. This is an absolute travesty. The Home Office is turning a blind eye. Haul his ass in !

    Were they victims or groupies? Did they go there for a good time or were they coerced? Did they have a motive for filing this law suit? Did they file the law suit with the intention of havng a massive payout from a dead man's fortune? People lie for thousands of dollars. People will lie for millions of dollars. Let's hear ALL THE TRUTH from the world wide media instead of ONE SIDE of the story.

    How in the world can a previous deal with a child Human trafficker give immunity to his partners who are also involved in the same crime? What idiot judge would agree to accept just an inhumane deal? I don't get it. Am I to understand that myself and 10 others committed a crime and I am the only one accused of this crime, I can then strike up a deal to forgive and ignore the 10 other people who helped me commit the crime I'm accused of? Seriously? What total nonsense is this. Hey guys, o.k. I've been caught and am in jail, great... just please don't prosecute or blame my accomplices. O.k.? O.K. no problem... if you commit suicide we will let everyone else just slide on by without any consequences. For Fuck sake.... what kind of crap are they trying to feed us in this year of our LORD. AUGUST 2020? GHISLANE MAXWELL will need to face her maker in due time. May GOD BLESS HER SOUL in HELL....

    i think Andrew should come out and said , yes i had sex with that girl ,she was 17 going on 18, if he had known she was forced to have sex with him , he would of had nothing to do with her ?so there could be entrapment here ?

    She’ll flip out in Brooklyn. She’ll make a deal & sing. No chance for suicide for her. I think she will get into witness protection & she will give up Bubba & Killery Clinton, Prince Andrew & all others who like young girls.

    Please, whoever is at fault, stop filing your nails! I couldn’t even finish listening while someone on audio clipped and filed their nails! If this continues with this set of reporters, we *will* figure out which probable female (by the sound of the length of nails being filed), and promptly report it to the BBC group responsible for these broadcasts. I am shocked with the amateurism this conveys, certainly, but mostly with the annoying sound, I have no idea what was said, so irritated am I with this audio. Fix it BBC, or I can not listen to your new broadcasts any longer. 😡

  • ohwell94

    Maybe it's just me but when I want to distance myself from a bad situation with an on/off friend I unfriend or block them on social media and dont take their calls not fly overseas and hang out at their house for 3 or 4 days because it's a convenient place to stay (I guess the luxury hotels in the area were all booked up)

    Andrew knows his days are numbered if he goes ahead with that interview considering how well he did on BBC Newsnight. Offered to help 3 times? I smell BS and guilty as F*ck. If he was innocent he wouldn't have cut everything and went into hiding but instead cooperated. Hope she names him. He must be sweating, oh wait he apparently doesn't 🤣oh that damn condition...😂

    Well....Prince Andrew has been naive over Epstein....but let's be honest here everybody is analyzing his body language from this interview and nobody is analyzing the body language of Guiffre who looked pretty happy meeting the young Prince in the well publicized photo...I mean she didn't look frightened or about to leg it off out of there on her heels did she?...Nah it is a set up and he fell into a honey trap is all I am about to swallow....What does she want...publicity, revenge....Oh of course they may be MONEY in a settlement....Andrew is not a bad person I think he just made a judgement error like anybody and everybody could make....problem is you or I could admit it he cannot...imagine how that must feel...!!!
