In a recent interview, former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz staunchly defended associates listed in Jeffrey Epstein’s controversial network, insisting they bear no responsibility for Epstein’s concealed private life. However, critics question whether Dershowitz’s fervent defense is a smokescreen, deflecting attention from potential undisclosed ties to Epstein.
“None of us knew about his private life that he kept so secret,” said Dershowitz, who was credited with getting Epstein a “sweetheart deal” in 2008 for child prostitution charges.
As the release of Epstein’s associates’ list looms, Dershowitz’s plea for a fair judgment is met with skepticism. Skeptics argue that his push for transparency, including the disclosure of every document, might be a calculated move to control the narrative and downplay any damning evidence.
Dershowitz’s insistence on innocence revolves around a past accuser’s admission of misidentification, a claim that some view as a strategic narrative crafted to divert attention from the more substantial allegations.
The renewed focus on Dershowitz’s appearances on Epstein’s flight logs and his acknowledgment of receiving a massage at Epstein’s residence raises eyebrows and prompts probing questions about the extent of his involvement.
The interview took a surprising turn when Dershowitz launched into a critical commentary on the #MeToo movement, alleging bias against Jews and Israelis. He points out what he perceives as a selective approach by feminists and criticizes the movement’s refusal to address certain cases.
“I think, you know, of the MeToo movement now. MeToo basically says believe anybody except if they’re a Jew and an Israeli,” he claimed. “The stories about the rapes that have been documented in Israel, the MeToo movement, ‘No, no, no, we’re not interested in that.’ Feminists, ‘We’re not interested in that.’ If it was a Jew who was raped, forget about it.”
The recent defense from Sean Hannity adds another layer of intrigue, suggesting that Dershowitz might have a more prominent role in Epstein’s network than previously acknowledged.
