Alan Dershowitz mocked for defensive tweet after he’s named in damning new Epstein documents

Published

on

Trump-defending attorney Alan Dershowitz on Friday posted a defensive tweet hours after he was named in newly unsealed documents pertaining to the late alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

According to the documents, victim Virginia Giuffre alleged that Epstein required her to “have sexual relations with Dershowitz on numerous occasions while she was a minor,” while also alleging Dershowitz “was an eye-witness to the sexual abuse of many other minors by Epstein and several of Epstein’s co-conspirators.”

Additionally, Giuffre claimed that Dershowitz worked on a plea deal for Epstein to avoid getting implicated himself as a co-conspirator in the late billionaire’s crimes.

Reacting to this, Dershowitz claimed that he actually wanted these documents to come out because they helped prove his innocence.

“I demanded release of all documents because they contain emails and manuscripts proving in Guiffre’s own words that she never met me,” Dershowitz wrote. “I knew they would repeat her false accusations against me, Al and Tipper Gore and others, which her own lawyers admit are ‘wrong.'”

Many of Dershowitz’s Twitter followers were not buying his spin, however, and mocked him as “Captain Underpants” in his replies, a reference to his past claims that he kept his underwear on when he received a massage from a young woman at one of Epstein’s properties.

Check out some reactions below.

Published

On Monday, the Justice Department released the results of an investigation into the validity applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the system that President Donald Trump claims was the basis of a "witch hunt" to destroy his presidency.

The DOJ concluded that of the 29 applications reviewed as part of the investigation, just 2 had "material errors" and that all of them demonstrated probable cause for surveillance.

Writing on Twitter, conservative attorney George Conway — a frequent critic of the president — summarized the results of the findings in a single sentence:

Trump privately blew up about ‘Crazy’ Nancy Pelosi as advisers try to reach compromise on stimulus: report

Published

on

On Monday, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump privately flew into a rage and threw insults at Democrats as his aides are struggling to negotiate a deal to extend coronavirus stimulus benefits, the unemployment portion of which expired at the end of last week.

"Mr. Trump called Speaker Nancy Pelosi 'Crazy Nancy,' charging that she had no interest in helping the unemployed," reported Maggie Haberman, Emily Cochrane, and Jim Tankersley. "He said Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, only wanted to help 'radical left' governors in states run by Democrats. And he threatened to short-circuit a delicate series of negotiations to produce a compromise and instead unilaterally impose a federal moratorium on tenant evictions."
