I’ll write more about the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein as I go along; let’s say the allegations indicate that he was involved in white slave trafficking which is another way of saying he was moving young girls from state to state for the purpose of prostitution. As we know one of the young girls has accused Epstein’s close friend Professor Dershowitz with being involved with her in Epstein’s crimes.
I’ve noted in the past some have called Dershowitz Professor Torture because of his advocacy of torture that seemed quite unusual considering America’s long time abhorrence of such activity. Of course Dershowitz wants to use it on people he doesn’t like.
I’d suggest another name that he could be called is Professor Extortion. It seems everywhere he goes he finds extortion happening. If it he doesn’t like people like Billy Bulger he accuses them of extortion; if he likes people he is suggesting they are being extorted. It’s a pretty cute trick: you besmirch the reputation of people you don’t like by calling them extortionists and you vilify those who say things about those you like by saying they are trying to extort your friend.
That in fact seems to be Dershowitz’s defense to the allegations of Virginia Roberts one of the girls his good friend Epstein was pimping about. She says he had sex with her when she was under the legal age of consent. She said Dershowitz who was a 60-something old man had sex with her when she was 16-years-old. It is reported as I noted before Dershowitz “says that the sex claims are a “completely, totally fabricated, made-up story” and that he is an “innocent victim of an extortion conspiracy.”
But that is nonsense. If she were tying to extort him she would not have gone public with it but approached him on the QT and said she would be going public with it if he didn’t do this or that. You don’t go public and then try to get something from the person since the damage to the person has already been done. So when Dershowitz claims Virginia is extorting him it just seems it ain’t necessarily so. As a further indication of this is there were many other men thrust upon this enslaved girl who she could have named if that was her purpose.
Now you have to love this. Really this is something that’s must be treasured. The opening paragraph of the article where I found it reads: “Film director Roman Polanski is not the only convicted pedophile to walk free this month and return to a life of privilege. On Wednesday, hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein completes his one-year house arrest in Palm Beach, which has been even less arduous than Polanski’s time at a Swiss ski chalet.”
It goes on: “During Epstein’s term of “house arrest,” he made several trips each month to his New York home and his private Caribbean island. In the earlier stage of his sentence for soliciting prostitution with a minor—13 months in the Palm Beach Stockade—he was allowed out to his office each day.”
You like that. That’s the best kind of justice money can buy.
The article goes on:
Meanwhile, “Epstein has settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought by the underage girls who were recruited to perform “massages” at his Palm Beach mansion. Seven victims reached a last-minute deal last week, days before a scheduled trial; each received well over $1 million—an amount that will hardly dent Epstein’s $2 billion net worth.”
Then again we learn of some of Epstein’s friends besides Dershowitz who were chauffeured around in his private plane: “former President Bill Clinton; Prince Andrew; former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak; New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson; and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers.”
Then the article goes on to ask a question how was it he was able: “to receive only a slap on the wrist for crimes that carry a mandatory 20-year sentence? Was he able, with his limitless assets and heavy-hitting lawyers—Alan Dershowitz, Gerald Lefcourt, Roy Black, Kenneth Starr, Guy Lewis, and Martin Weinberger among them—to escape equal justice.”
You don’t need more than a grammar school education to answer that question.
But here’s the best part. Dershowitz’s take on what happened to his friend and client Epstein who is alleged to have bought himself out of some serious crimes into a picnic-type sentence, It is reported: “Attorney Dershowitz says Epstein’s agreement to pay attorney fees for the victims and agree to civil damage claims—without admitting guilt—amounted to “extortion under threat of criminal prosecution.”
How can you believe anything Dershowitz states. He was Epstein’s attorney. If there were extortion he should have gone to trial. He wasn’t forced into pleading guilty for the great deal he got. Dershowitz should have told his client not to pay out the millions to the young girls that it is alleged he has done. As I said Dershowitz uses the word extortion so freely that it has lost all meaning when coming from his mouth.
