Prince Andrew: angry and bewildered

Earlier this week, at a news conference in New York, US Attorney Geoffrey Berman who’s been investigating the Jeffrey Epstein case, said publicly that they’ve had “zero cooperation” from Prince Andrew who had previously said he’d be happy to cooperate with authorities about his friendship with the dead rapist pedophile. 

Prince Andrew is now reacting to those claims, indirectly. A “source close to him” tells The Telegraph that: 

"Nothing could be further from the truth" a source close to him said.

"The Duke is more than happy to talk to the FBI but he hasn't been approached by them yet.

"He is angry about the way this is being portrayed and bewildered as to why this was said in New York. It seems certain people are jumping the gun.”

And also, per The Telegraph via the NY Post:

“Royal sources believe Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman’s press conference outside Epstein’s mansion Monday was a “publicity stunt” to try to force Andrew to come forward, the report says.”

Right. So to recap, a US Attorney declares ON THE RECORD in the presence of the media that Prince Andrew has not been cooperative. Prince Andrew, however, sends out “sources” to whine about how “angry and bewildered” he is, which always gives him plausible deniability since the exact words can’t be directly attributed to him – but we’re supposed to believe him over the US Attorney who at least backed up his statements in person? On the streets we call that a squirrel. At the palace we call it royal privilege. 

Remember, this is the same dude who also sent out his “sources” to talk about his fat fingers as evidence that he’s not the person pictured with Virginia Roberts Giuffre who has stated emphatically that she was sex trafficked to him by the dead rapist pedophile Jeffrey Epstein when she was just 17 years old. And the same dude who used the Defective Sweat Glands defence on national television in the UK as proof that he did not participate in any of his friend Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes. 

Now he’s expecting people to believe that he’s made himself available to US authorities for questioning? And that he hasn’t been shirking his responsibilities? That he’s a man of integrity who does not appreciate these stunting lawyers and investigators besmirching his good reputation?!

WHAT GOOD REPUTATION?!?

Because on top of his connection to a dead rapist pedophile – which, to be clear, IS BAD ENOUGH – Prince Andrew wasn’t exactly seen to be on the up and up when he held the post of UK trade envoy, as many suspected him of shady backroom deal-making with dictators and corrupt billionaires and business deals that are now under scrutiny. So… again…

WHAT GOOD REPUTATION?!?

Andrew’s making it seem like people have no reason to doubt him – a goddamn luxury only people like him, who’ve been coddled by privilege, can enjoy. There’s an entire royal institution that’s been mobilised to protect him. And isn’t that yet another interesting angle to this whole mess? 

These courtiers, the “sources” who are out here busting their asses trying to convince the UK media that Prince Andrew’s been sitting around innocently, ready and waiting to work with US authorities on their case against his friend, the dead rapist pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, are bending over backwards to defend the member of the family with the sh-ttiest track record and, frankly, the one NOBODY GIVES A SH-T ABOUT…

Imagine if they put that kind of effort into helping EVERY member of the family?!
