CBS News has reportedly fired an employee said to be involved in the leak of a video showing ABC “Good Morning America” anchor Amy Robach criticizing her network for not running a story on Jeffrey Epstein three years ago.

ABC News executives believe they know who accessed the Robach video and that the former employee was now at CBS, according to a report Thursday by journalist Yashar Ali, who noted that it was unclear whether the employee was responsible for leaking the video.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Two sources familiar with the matter tell me that CBS News has fired the staffer in question,” Ali tweeted with an accompanying story. “This comes after ABC informed CBS that they had determined who accessed the footage of Amy Robach expressing her frustrations about the Epstein story.”

Ali’s full Twitter thread reads:

“Scoop: ABC News execs believe they know who the former employee is who accessed footage of @arobach expressing her frustrations about her shelved Jeffrey Epstein story

“In a statement, an ABC News spokesperson tells me: ‘We take violations of company policy very seriously, and we’re pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak.’

“It’s important to note that ABC News does not know if this former employee leaked the footage to Project Veritas. What they do know is who accessed the footage. It’s possible that person could have shared it with others who leaked it.

“As I noted in this thread, ABC News has confirmed they’re conducting an investigation into the leak. In response to an email, CBS News says they’re declining to comment for this story.

“Update: Two sources familiar with the matter tell me that CBS News has fired the staffer in question. This comes after ABC informed CBS that they had determined who accessed the footage of Amy Robach expressing her frustrations about the Epstein story.”
