Trump supporter Alan Dershowitz accused — in open court — of having sex with victim of billionaire’s pedophile ring: report

Alan Dershowitz was accused in federal appeals court of involvement in billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring, The Daily Beast reported Wednesday evening.

The allegations were made before the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Wednesday.

The case is over a lawsuit filed by the Miami Herald and thirty other media organizations to unseal documents in a lawsuit by Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Giuffre’s attorney, Paul Cassell, said witness testimony shows Dershowitz’s involvement in the alleged trafficking.

“When all the records come out it will show that Epstein and [Epstein’s alleged madam Ghislaine] Maxwell were trafficking girls to the benefit of his friends, including Mr. Dershowitz,” Cassell said.

Epstein is also reportedly friends with President Donald Trump, who Dershowitz frequently defends on television.

Dershowitz attacked the Giuffre outside the courtroom.

“She is hurting the #MeToo movement terribly,” Dershowitz argued.

Dershowitz also had trouble answering if he was still Epstein’s attorney.

“I don’t represent Epstein,” Dershowitz first said.

“You never stop being someone’s lawyer,” Dershowitz then said.

“I was his lawyer until this deal was made,” Dershowitz said next.

Giuffre alleges she was turned into a sex slave while working at Mar-a-Lago.

“One of those victims was Giuffre, who claims she was 15 and working a summer job at Mar-a-Lago in 1998 when British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly recruited her as a masseuse for Epstein. Giuffre said Epstein kept her as a “sex slave” until 2002 and that she was forced to have sex with his friends, including Prince Andrew and Dershowitz,” The Beast reported.

Both Prince Andrew and Dershowitz have denied the allegations.

“I’ve denied ever meeting her or even knowing who she was,” Dershowitz said outside the courtroom on Wednesday.

Lawmakers more optimistic on COVID stimulus as election day looms

Published

Chances for approving a new spending package to support the US economy improved dramatically on Tuesday after the senior Democratic lawmaker said a bill is in the works and the top Senate Republican said he would bring it to a vote.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Bloomberg TV that legislators are starting to commit the measure to paper and she is optimistic it can win bipartisan support.

Whether policymakers can complete the negotiations in time for Congress to approve the package before the November 3 presidential election, however, remains a question mark.

"Our economy needs it. Hopefully by the end of the day today, we will know where we are," she said in an interview. "We are starting to write the bill."

America is on pace for record-shattering early voter turnout — including in critical states: report

On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that voters are casting early ballots in numbers on track to set a historic record — including in some critical battleground states.

"Early-voting counts suggest a record level of civic participation before Election Day. The tens of millions of ballots already cast show highly enthusiastic voters are making sure their votes are counted amid a pandemic," said the report.

15.8 million people in battleground states have already voted, and in some states, like Michigan and Wisconsin, more people have voted early so far than did in the entire early voting period of 2016. In North Carolina, meanwhile, 2 million ballots have been cast — more than double the same amount at this point in 2016.
