Opinion| During an interview on Good Day New York last Thursday former Harvard Law Professor and liberal icon, Alan Dershowitz answered questions about accusations that he had sex with underage girls with a blistering counterattack.
Dershowitz, had represented billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein of “Lolita Island” fame. Epstein became notorious for his private Caribbean island, known as “Orgy Island” where, evidence suggests, that underage girls were kept to pleasure his guests.
When all was said and done Epstein was given an unfathomably light sentence for his crimes. Apparently, Dershowitz called in favors from high-level Democrats with ties to Epstein to help his client.
Among Epstein’s guests on the island were Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Stephen Hawking. That likely explains how Epstein virtually avoided punishment.
Now that Dershowitz has written a book making the case against impeaching President Trump, the Democratic smear machine has turned to using his association with Epstein to defame the left’s previously highly regarded Constitutional legal scholar.
Here’s Dershowitz dropping a bomb of his own when asked about the allegations that he had sex with underage girls: (prompt to 6:23)
“There are emails so far that are secret, but that prove, not only that I was framed, but who framed me. It names names.
These people are going to go to jail once these emails come out because this was a total frame up for financial reasons, and I can prove it, and will prove it.
Have me back on the show when the emails come out, boy it will be so interesting because there will be prominent people in handcuffs. Prominent people in handcuffs once these emails come out.”
“Look, as to the first woman who accused me [Virginia Roberts], her own lawyer admitted in front of witnesses that she was wrong, just wrong, that I couldn’t have been in the places.
While being interviewed on the Law & Crime Network, Dershowitz said he has records to prove that he was not where Roberts said he was.
“The second woman [Sarah Ransome], is a woman who wrote to the NY Post claiming she had video tapes of Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump having sex with underage girls. The NY Post said, ‘We don’t believe you.’ They wouldn’t even publish her story, but, she’s one of the people.”
Dershowitz pointed directly to Clinton consigliere, David Boies for fabricating these allegations.
Boies is a major Democratic donor who is reported to now be representing Peter Strzok, the FBI official accused of unsuccessfully conspiring with others in the agency, and elsewhere, to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
It is unlikely that Boies would ever make these allegations without, at least, the approval of the Clintons. This would be consistent with the Democrat strategy of projecting one’s sins on their political opponents first.
It’s also been reported that Boies previously represented Democratic super donor and fundraiser, Harvey Weinstein who was closely tied to Hillary Clinton during her campaign for president.
The treatment of Dershowitz is somewhat reminiscent of the way the Democrats jettisoned longtime Dem, Senator Zell Miller, for refusing to walk in lockstep with the hard left turn the party had undertaken.
The attack on the respected Dershowitz may or may not be the tipping point for longtime rank and file democrats but sooner or later the fissures in the party are going to cause the party to hemorrhage support.
