Epstein Lawyer Dershowitz Confronted by Hannity About Allegations in Court Docs

Former Harvard Law School professor emeritus and attorney Alan Dershowitz defended his association to deceased child sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein on Wednesday under questioning by Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Years after his death in a New York jail cell, Epstein continues to drive news cycles.

This week, a list of more than 100 people formally associated with Epstein who flew on his private jet was unsealed by the order of a federal judge in New York in relation to a case involving Ghislaine Maxwell – Epstein’s business partner at times lover.

Dershowitz, a frequent guest on primetime cable news, was on the list.

On Wednesday’s “Hannity,” the attorney and legal expert claimed there was a valid reason for his name being on the list after the host asked him point blank about why he was so close to Epstein.

“Professor, you are mentioned in this document,” Hannity noted.

“You are mentioned repeatedly and very specifically.”

“The allegation against you was that Epsetin forced then-minor Jane Doe #3 to have sexual relations with you and also that you were an eye witness to sexual abuse by other minors by Epstein,” Hannity noted.

He added, “You have been out there vigorously defending your name, your honor, and denying these allegations fiercely.”

Hannity then asked Dershowitz to respond to the documents.

Watch:

Dershowitz recalled that he was previously accused of sex crimes by one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre, who has since stated she might have misremembered him, as CNN noted.

He then said that additional documents, if they are released, will prove that he never met her but that he also has evidence to disprove any claims he was involved in Epstein’s sex trafficking business.

“I was Epstein’s lawyer, of course I flew on his plane,” Dershowitz said.

The attorney then claimed all of his flights on Epstein’s jet were for business but he admitted that the two were once friends.

“People have to be very careful about what they’re believing and when it happened,” he said. “For example, as soon as Epstein was shown to be what he was, I ended my personal association with him completely but I maintained a legal relationship with him.”

Dershowitz then said he provided legal services to Epstein, just as he does with other horrible people.

“I’ve represented some of the worst people in the world and continue to do so,” Dershowitz said. “That’s my life, and of course I represented Epstein.”

    Dershowitz get pissed off on an interview with Hannity like he did with Kim Iverson, Seen that one, he got pretty crazy when she asked him about it

    “I have represented some of the most horrible people and will continue to do so” Translates:Dershowitz = douche.

    Like he had no idea. How ironic to be just like the Clinton’s. All the rich elites can’t seem to recall and deny, deny, deny. .

    “Wag the Dog!!! Look at the timing of this release of names to the public. This is a “Shiny Object” that Dems want you to focus on. Not the election that is coming up. There is going to be some shady shit going on and they want you to focus elsewhere. So the flight logs have come out, so what. What you want to know is which flights landed at his island. They are not showing that list. There is going to be some serious mud slinging going on, which started with Biden’s speech yesterday (What an idiot). The media is playing along as well. Haven’t heard much about Hunter lately, nor have we heard about Ukraine. My #1 concern is the illegals that have come into the country. This is what they don’t want you to focus on. They are going to be executing their plan to get them to vote or at least be the “Cover” for any illegal votes they are going to cast.

      Hunter is going to be held in contempt of Congress soon. We’ll hear plenty on that. But I agree. They’ll be pulling a bunch of distractive shit this year.
