As reported earlier on Friday, former Fox News and NBC News journalist Megyn Kelly revealed that she was going to publish video of a sit-down interview with the woman who was recently fired by CBS News after she allegedly leaked off-air, hot mic video to Project Veritas of ABC News' Amy Robach claiming that three years ago her bosses squashed an investigation/interview she had with Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

The woman, now identified as Ashley Bianco, denies that she leaked any footage to Project Veritas.

"It wasn't me. You know, I'm not the whistleblower," Bianco told Kelly. "I'm sorry to ABC, but the leaker's still inside, you know. I never did any of that."

While Bianco claims she had nothing to do with leaking the footage, she did admit that she "clipped" the moment, which she claims happens all the time.

"Yeah, I just clipped it off," Bianco said. "I essentially marked it in the system. It never left the system. We do it all the time."

Bianco also stated that she regrets clipping the moment in the first place.

"Had I known, I would've never clipped it," Bianco said, responding to Kelly's question of whether she regrets her actions in the situation. "I didn't do anything wrong. I didn't leak it. Anyone else could've clipped it off."

Towards the end of the interview, Kelly noted that Project Veritas' James O'Keefe has even acknowledged that Bianco wasn't the whistleblower. O'Keefe posted a thread on Twitter of statements by the whistleblower, indicating that the whistleblower "is still working for ABC News."
