“Welp, welcome to the slippery sleazy slope that comes with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s recent arrest for child sex trafficking.

Internet sleuths have uncovered a 2015 video of Harvard attorney and Epstein’s friend, Alan Dershowitz, who worked to get Epstein a sweetheart deal in a 2008 plea agreement, admitting to getting a massage at Epstein’s mansion.

During an interview with Miami news station WPLG regarding Britain’s Prince Andrew (another friend of Epstein) and his alleged sexual involvement with an underaged girl who was allegedly kept as a sex slave by Epstein, Dershowitz not only bashed the accuser, calling her an “admitted prostitute and a serial liar” but claimed that the then-teen was not victimized and in fact “made her own decisions in life.”

Watch the entire interview below but I warn you, it’s triggering and mad cringey.

Dershowitz has said he is “proud” of his work at “getting the best possible deal” for his “client” but if he was in his house (just if, he hasn’t been convicted) crimin’ along with Epstein is it even legal, let alone ethical for him to then represent him?

Dershowitz’s personal disconnect on this one is huge. His “blame the victim” defense speaks volumes. And, his sleaze is already hurtling him headlong down the slippery slope.

..How did Epstein get Dershowitz to defend him
?? Do you suppose he may have been defending himself ?? As in “ Al , are you Trump and Star are at risk too” ????

…Dershowitz ,(sic ),who made sure ,he and his ilk ,got immunity from prosecution , blames the young girls for being there …apparently he’s blaming the Girl ,that claims he raped her , was at fault …That’s like blaming the folks in Las Vegas , for being there ,during the famous shooting of 50 people at Mandalay Bay …If he’s representing our laws , why would the laws stipulate ,that those girls were below the age of consent ? And “statuary rape “would not exist as a law .. Dershowitz ,is a “disgrace “ to the legal profession and to Harvard… Read more »

So what Dersh is saying, if it were any of his granddaughters or nieces then it would be their fault and not the rich old f*#k predator’s. Got it.
