Alan Dershowitz, the formerly fairly well-respected attorney, has morphed into one of the most consistently unhinged Trump sycophants over the past couple years, constantly popping up on television to defend the president’s latest actions or to paper over some obvious criminality within the administration by spewing a slew of excuses.
For some reason, the networks continue to book him, this despite the fact that he has been accused of vile sexual misconduct and has deep ties to billionaire serial archpedophile Jeffrey Epstein, for whom Dershowitz worked as part of a legal team.
Given the fact that Trump is an avowed sexual predator himself and has been accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in the past it’s perhaps not terribly surprising that Dershowitz is throwing up barricades for him. Predatory birds of a feather flock together.
Dershowitz was previously hit by an allegation from a woman named Virginia Roberts, who said that when she was still a minor Epstein forced her to have sex with Dershowitz. He denied the stomach-churning accusation.
Now, another woman has come forward with a serious allegation against Dershowitz. NY Daily News reports that a woman named Sarah Ransome claims that Epstein ordered her to have sex with Dershowitz. The revelation comes in tandem with Ransome’s lawsuit against Epstein, who she alleges trafficked her for sex between 2006 and 2007. Ransome was in her twenties at the time, but many of Epstein’s other victims were between middle school and high school ages.
Not surprisingly, Dershowitz denies this new allegation and claims that he never even met Ransome. He claims that she is “mentally unstable” and being exploited by her attorney David Boies.
“The villain here is David Boies, who is exploiting a crazy woman in order to get revenge against me,” Dershowitz insists.
However, given the fact that he continues to support Donald Trump despite the mounting evidence of corruption and felonies, Dershowitz is not exactly sitting on a mountain of credibility.
“Alan Dershowitz’s absurd attacks on me are consistent with his pattern of attacking every lawyer who has represented women who have accused him of sexual abuse. This is simply a pattern where he thinks if he is loud enough and crazy enough it will distract attention from what he’s done,” Boies said, addressing the attack from Dershowitz.
While no conclusive evidence has been provided to prove Dershowitz’s guilt, the fact that these allegations keep emerging is deeply disturbing. His association with predators like Trump and Epstein is at best a lack of judgment when it comes to character and at a worst a willing engagement with a confederation of sex criminals. These victims deserve justice and America deserves answers.
