Biographer Vickey Ward authored a piece on the terrifying threats that Jeffrey Epstein made to one woman’s children. While Ward detailed the story Saturday, she revealed Sunday that Epstein threatened her “unborn child” too.
In an interview with CNN, Ward described a phone call where Epstein referenced that she was pregnant in a threat.
“So I found him incredibly creepy. And threatening,” Ward recalled. “I was pregnant at the time. And he didn’t like the fact that I began to uncover that a lot of the stories he had told, the rich and famous in New York about himself was simply not true.”
She revealed that Epstein would call her and each call would end with a horrifying threat.
“At the end of the phone call, every time he talked to me he would say, ‘By the way, Vicki,’ this is off the record, ‘And if I don’t like this story, here’s what’s going to happen to your unborn children.’ That was the kind of tenor of this guy.”
She said that she still finds it baffling how New York billionaires still hold Epstein in any sort of esteem. It made her wonder what he has on them.
After her piece in Vanity Fair, Epstein managed to get into the offices and past security to see the editor of the magazine.
“And they had a private discussion at the end of which Graydon Carter decided to remove the on-the-record story that I had alleging that Jeffrey Epstein had sexually harassed two young women, two sisters, one of them was underage,” Ward revealed. “And, you know, that was incredibly difficult for me then as a reporter. These women had been so brave to go on the record. I couldn’t understand the leverage, what — how did Jeffrey Epstein, you know, manage to negotiate that. And I think that these are the kind of questions that really now, you know, I’m certainly going to be on in a major way. I’ve been following this for quite some time.”

The GOP ‘fundamentals’ are the same as 20 years ago — and they’re ‘running short on competence’: columnist
The Republicans in charge today may be different in some cases than the ones who ran it 20 years ago, but not much else has changed according to The Washington Post's James Downie.
"In the span of an hour, CNN’s State of the Union featured both new and old faces of the Republican Party. First, host Dana Bash interviewed Sen. Roy Blunt, who has held elective office from Missouri for most of the past 35 years. Then she welcomed Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) and Nancy Mace (R-SC), both newly elected members of the House. Though all three looked very different, they sounded much the same," Downie wrote on Sunday evening.
Incoming GOP lawmaker put on the spot over her legitimacy with Trump calling the election ‘rigged’
Filling in for regular "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper on Sunday, CNN's Dana Bash asked a newly-elected GOP lawmaker if the president undermined her legitimacy as a House member with his insistence there was massive voter fraud.
Speaking with incoming Reps. Nicolle Malliotakis (R-NY) and Nancy Mace (R-SC), Bash asked the New York representative-elect about Trump's election conspiracy theories.
After noting Trump lawyers' accusations of voter fraud have been "laughed' out of court, she turned to Malliotakis.
"I'll go to you, Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis: Does it concern you that the president is undermining the results of an election that both of you won?" Bash asked.
CNN’s Bash forced to cut off GOP senator and fact-check him on Trump lawyers’ voter fraud claims
During a long interview with Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, CNN host Dana Bash was forced to cut off the Republican when he cast doubt on the 2020 election results, with Bash pointing out there are no credible reports of massive election fraud.
Discussing Donald Trump's lawyer's attempts to get thrown out, the topic turned to Georgia and the vote recount that still showed former Vice President Joe Biden pulled off an upset in the state.
'Do you, Roy Blunt, as not just the former secretary of state of Missouri, as the [Senate] Rules chairman, you have a bird's eye oversight view of the elections, do you think it was rigged? Yes or no?" the "State of the Union" host pressed.
