Lisa Bloom represents victims: Epstein scandal: lawyer is sure royal status protected Prince Andrew from the FBI

In November 2019, Prince Andrew set out to clear his name. In a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with BBC journalist Emily Maitlis, he went on to explain why he had such a close friendship with the late and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. And the royal also addressed allegations against himself. It ended disastrously.

Andrew talked his head off, got caught up in contradictions and couldn't really prove his alibi. Public amusement and outrage ensued in equal measure.

The fact that Andrew was never questioned by the FBI in the investigation into the Epstein case surprised not only Royal fans. US attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents several victims of the pedophile, is certain that Andrew's royal status helped. "The FBI has clearly decided that it will not take action against Prince Andrew. This is a decision that had to be made at the highest level," she suspects in the new documentary "Secrets of Prince Andrew", from which the "Mirror" quotes . "We are talking about Prince Andrew - was this a diplomatic matter? Didn't we want to put a strain on relations with the UK? Maybe?" the lawyer said.

She thinks anyone else would have been tracked down and questioned by the FBI. "They would have talked to witnesses and if they had had enough evidence, they would have handed him over to the US to try him," she said. His decision to appear on the BBC a few months after Epstein's death in a New York prison was "insanely arrogant," Bloom said in the documentary.

A lawsuit filed by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre against Prince Andrew ended in an out-of-court settlement in early 2022. King Charles III's brother already declared that he would pay a sum of millions, but did not admit any guilt.
