(Newser) – Prince Andrew's November 2019 BBC interview about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein was called worse than a train wreck. His interview with the FBI and US prosecutors? Well, it hasn't really happened. Geoffrey S. Berman, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York, was asked during a Monday press conference about the prince's assistance in the Epstein probe; Berman said that while authorities desire an interview with him, he has "provided zero cooperation."

NBC New York reports Berman says prosecutors and the FBI have reached out to the prince's lawyers numerous times already, with the AP adding that they specifically want to talk to him about his "dealings" with Epstein. The New York Times surfaces a statement from Prince Andrew made late last year that expresses an opposite sentiment: "Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required," he said.
