Alan Dershowitz: Unsealed Email and Manuscript Show Epstein Accuser Lied About Sex With Me

Alan Dershowitz: Unsealed Email and Manuscript Show Epstein Accuser Lied About Sex With MeJohn Lamparski/GettyLawyer Alan Dershowitz claims an email buried in a mountain of just-unsealed court documents proves that one of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers lied when she said she was farmed out for sex with him as a teenager.“I’ve been waiting for these emails to come out for months and they conclusively prove my innocence,” Dershowitz told The Daily Beast on Friday, adding that he is now asking federal prosecutors to investigate the accuser’s high-profile legal team.Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims Epstein made her a sex slave when she was just 16 years old, has also alleged that she was loaned out for sex with Dershowitz—saying in a 2016 deposition that she had once performed oral sex on the Harvard Law professor in a limo in Massachusetts, alongside Epstein and a young girl.“The first time I recall having sex with Professor Dershowitz was in New York,” she testified at one point in that deposition. “The last time I remember having sex with him… I believe it was on an airplane.”The Biggest Bombshells in Newly Unsealed Epstein DocumentsDershowitz—who helped broker Epstein’s 2005 sweetheart plea deal—has vehemently denied sexual contact with Giuffre, waged a public war with her attorney David Boies, and insisted that he would be cleared when the court documents were unsealed.That unsealing happened Friday morning when a tranche of filings from a defamation lawsuit Giuffre had filed against Epstein crony Ghislaine Maxwell was made public.The pile of paperwork contained bad news for a raft of high-profile men, from former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson to New York billionaire Glenn Dubin, who were named by Giuffre as being involved in Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking ring; they deny it.But Dershowitz claims one document in particular also poses a problem for Giuffre: a 2011 email exchange between her and a British tabloid reporter who had interviewed her about her years under Epstein’s sway.In the email, Giuffre told the Mail on Sunday reporter, Sharon Churcher, she was racing to meet a deadline for a draft of what she would later describe as a “fictionalized account” of what happened to her.“Just wondering if you have any information on you from when you and I were doing interviews about the J.E. story,” Giuffre wrote Churcher.“I wanted to put the names of some of the assholes, oops, I meant to say, pedo’s, that J.E. sent me to. With everything going on, my brain feels like mush and it would be a great deal of help!” Giuffre added.The emails in the court file shows Churcher responded: “Don’t forget Alan Dershowitz… J.E.’s buddy and lawyer…good name for your pitch as he repped Claus von Bulow and a movie was made about that case… title was Reversal of Fortune. We all suspect Alan is a pedo and tho no proof of that, you probably met him when he was hanging out with JE.”Giuffre’s reply contained no reference to Dershowitz, just a simple, “Thanks again Shazza, I’m bringing down the house with this book!!”Churcher, who no longer works at the Mail on Sunday, declined to comment.Dershowitz noted that when Giuffre finished her manuscript, there was no mention of sex with him—although Giuffre did write that Dershowitz had a taste for young, beautiful women and that he once walked into a room where Epstein had just molested her.Court papers filed by Giuffre’s legal team say she began writing the manuscript on the advice of her mental-health counselor as a way to work through her trauma. She explored the idea of selling it but ultimately decided not to publish it, they said.To Dershowitz, desperately trying to rescue his reputation as the Epstein scandal continues to intensify, the absence of allegations even in what Giuffre has described as fiction amounts to a smoking gun.“If she had sex with me, I’d be highlighted,” he said.“This is completely exculpatory and completely consistent with what I’ve been saying,” Dershowitz said. “She made it up when she met her lawyers and heard there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.”Asked about Dershowitz’s claim that the email shows Giuffre had failed to accuse him of sexual misconduct before she filed her lawsuit, Boies’ firm sent a statement from his co-counsel, Sigrid McCawley, that did not directly address the issue.“The denials of those accused of participating in Jeffrey Epstein's horrific sex trafficking operation are predictable and have long been anticipated,” McCawley said.  “The truth will have the final word.”It continued: “The body of evidence amassed in the case against Ghislaine Maxwell—Jeffrey Epstein's recruiter-in-chief, trainer, and sometimes, co-abuser—is powerful. Some of it was unsealed by the Second Circuit; we are hopeful more will come out. “The documents and exhibits should be carefully examined for the vivid, detailed and tragic story they tell in the face of cursory, bumper-sticker like statements by those accused. Virginia Roberts Giuffre is a survivor and a woman to be believed.  She believes a reckoning of inevitable accountability has begun.”Epstein Accuser Sues Alan Dershowitz Over Alleged Sex RingDershowitz—who is being sued by Giuffre for defamation—said that when he was first accused he went to federal prosecutors and complained but could not provide them with the Churcher email chain because it had already been sealed by the court.Now that the document is public, he said, his attorneys plan to speak with prosecutors on Monday and ask them to investigate Giuffre’s lawyers for “pressuring her into falsely accusing me.”Dershowitz also said he has no idea if Giuffre was telling the truth when she claimed his former client recruited underage girls for sex with his famous friends, like Prince Andrew and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel.“I just know she made up stories about me,” he said.Jeffrey Epstein Accuser Names Powerful Men in Alleged Sex RingRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Trump's response to the weekend massacres show he is an ethical black hole

Trump's response to the weekend massacres show he is an ethical black holeTrump is playing the country like he’s a conductor of a symphony of racist violence‘Under this president, people are now afraid to go the hospital or to go the police.’ Photograph: Susan Walsh/APDonald Trump continues to play his cynical game of dodging responsibility, shifting blame and exploiting tragedy. In a press conference called to address the horrors of two mass shootings in the United States over the past weekend, the president said nothing about his pivotal role in stoking fear and racism among certain segments of the population, said nothing about the fact that five of the 10 deadliest shootings in American history have happened since 2016, the fact that he has become a figurehead in the dark underground of the global white nationalist movement.Instead, Trump blamed the internet, blamed video games, blamed Congress and blamed “mental health issues”. By tying legislation for tougher gun laws to immigration reform, as he tweeted earlier, Trump also and by extension blamed immigrants, who themselves are the victims of the very racism that has been unleashed by this president.With this ethical black hole of leadership and narcissistic exploitation of other people’s tragedy, Trump proves once again – as if we needed any more proof – that he is unfit for the office he occupies. But the tragedy is larger than his job. It’s also what he’s doing to our country.How are we, the ordinary people of this country, supposed to go about our daily lives in this country any more? The victims in Ohio were doing nothing but enjoying themselves before they were gunned down. The killed and wounded in El Paso were doing nothing but back-to-school shopping.Nor does it stop there. Last April, people were terrorized in Poway, California, when a shooter entered their synagogue as they were celebrating Passover and began firing. And at least since last March, when a suspected white supremacist stormed two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 51 people, American Muslims have congregated more nervously, increasing security at their mosques around the country. If you think the New Zealand connection is far afield from the American context, note that both the alleged Poway and El Paso shooters referenced the New Zealand shooter directly and favorably in their own manifestos.“In general, I support the Christchurch shooter and his manifesto,” the alleged El Paso shooter’s manifesto says. “This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigators, not me.” The rhetoric here sounds suspiciously like the president’s, who for months, had been tweeting and shrieking about the so-called caravan being “an invasion of our country”. Trump even laughed at the suggestion that migrants should be shot.Such is the world of ideas that circulate dangerously and freely today. Hispanics are invaders, says the suspected El Paso shooter. Muslims want to “replace” white people, according to the accused Christchurch shooter. Jews are determined to “enslave” all the other races, proclaims the alleged Poway shooter. All of these notions are as ridiculous as they are noxious.But while such ideas can be easily dismissed, their real-world consequences cannot. When will the next shooting happen? And who will be its target? The world of the rightwing extremist is populated by too many enemies. Muslims, Latinxs, Jews, immigrants, African Americans, refugees, women. And who will the president blame next?Probably those with mental disabilities, but the idea that mass shooter phenomenon is “a mental illness problem” is another Trumpian sleight of hand. Not only does such a notion deflect responsibility from his own racist statements and actions (and not only does it conveniently forget that in 2018 Trump himself made it easier for people with mental illness to buy guns), but it also advances a dangerous falsehood. In fact, there is no scientifically discernible link between gun violence and mental illness. But with Trump making the link loudly and publicly, those with mental disabilities become even more vulnerable.In fact, Trump is playing the country like he’s a conductor of a symphony of racist violence. Each of us has come to know a particular fear under him, and he draws it out of us when he wants. Muslims have learned to prepare for violence against them when the president tweets or retweets Islamophobic content. Immigrants – including legal permanent residents, for God’s sake – are being told to live in constant fear of Ice raids and immigration detention. Jewish Americans worry about attending their synagogues. Refugees are told they will be sent back.Trump waves his baton, and the racism sings.Nor is this just a matter of perception or limited to the violent acts of the extreme fringe. Reports in El Paso indicate that some people avoided seeking medical care or approaching authorities to find their loved one because of their immigration status, leading the West Texas wing of the Customs and Border Protection to tweet: “We are not conducting enforcement operations at area hospitals, the family reunification center or shelters. We stand in support of our community.”Under this president, people are now afraid to go the hospital or to go the police. We are being taught to be afraid of the very institutions that have been created to protect us.Enough of this bloody, miserable and discordant concert of death and hatred. The basic answers are not difficult. We need fewer guns. We need less racism. We need a different president. * Moustafa Bayoumi is the author of the award-winning books How Does It Feel To Be a Problem? Being Young and Arab in America.

Fox News Show Blows Up Over Whether Trump Is Racist or Not: ‘This Is Insane!’

Fox News Show Blows Up Over Whether Trump Is Racist or Not: ‘This Is Insane!’Fox News’ early-afternoon gabfest Outnumbered went completely off the rails Wednesday as lone liberal panelist Jessica Tarlov tangled with her conservative colleagues over whether or not it is fair to describe President Trump as racist.Discussing the president’s days-long attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Baltimore, things quickly heated up when co-host Dagen McDowell was openly miffed when fellow panelist Lisa Marie Boothe continued to correct her as she tried to make a point.Responding to a recent poll showing 51 percent of Americans and 86 percent of Democrats believing the president is racist, McDowell attempted to counter a point that Boothe made earlier that Democratic politicians are allegedly pandering to the left.“Here’s the problem—all those people you mention, Lisa, they’re not running for re-election next year,” McDowell said, prompting Boothe to note that Bernie Sanders is running for president. As McDowell conceded that point, Boothe further mentioned a member of Congress was also up for re-election, causing McDowell to snap.“I said president,” the Fox Business host sneered. “You corrected me once and you were right. Let’s move on.”That strange confrontation merely set the stage for an even more combative blow-up involving Boothe. After McDowell noted that a large number of black voters who voted for Obama stayed home in 2016, and that Trump’s race-baiting could come back to bite him, Boothe contended that Trump could simply argue that black unemployment is at an all-time low and tout criminal justice reform. This prompted Tarlov, the lone liberal, to jump in and insist that such a strategy wouldn’t erase Trump’s history of racism.“He could make those arguments but it won’t change the fact that he is a racist and he does racist things,” Tarlov declared as anchor Harris Faulkner said those were “two different things” and Boothe claimed she was “weaponizing words.”The liberal co-host, however, pushed forward. “A birther means that you’re a racist,” Tarlov said. “Telling women of color who are congressional representatives to go back to where they came from—when three of them are Americans from birth, one a refugee who is now a citizen—is racist. Thinking that the Central Park Five is still guilty even though they’ve been exonerated, is racist.”Moments later, after going back and forth with Faulkner over whether the so-called “Squad” was right to suggest Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is racist—even though Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has specifically said she doesn’t believe Pelosi is racist—Tarlov then found herself in a battle with Boothe.Having already noted that she’s been in countless Fox debates over whether Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are anti-Semitic or bigoted, Tarlov said they “need to be honest” that it was racist for Trump to describe Baltimore as a place where “no human would want to live.”“That’s what Bernie Sanders said as well—that it was a third world country,” Boothe responded, prompting Tarlov to bury her head in her hands and exclaim: “This is insane!”As Boothe insisted Tarlov was “playing a semantics game,” the liberal co-host said she would remember all of this the next time they had a discussion on Louis Farrakhan or Omar’s controversial “all about the Benjamins” tweet and they demand that she talk about that.The two would continue to argue a little bit longer over which political party was more racist until Faulkner stepped in.“I appreciate the passion, and I know we will go back and forth, but it’s a conversation,” the anchor said. “Okay? When you put your hands in the air and you roll your eyes and we kind of go back and forth, it feels less like a conversation. But that’s where we need to be.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Hong Kong Train Disruptions Show Protests Becoming Daily Affair

Hong Kong Train Disruptions Show Protests Becoming Daily Affair(Bloomberg) — Fresh train disruptions by Hong Kong protesters Tuesday show how unrest once confined to weekend marches through downtown streets is spreading across the Asian financial hub and affecting daily life.Train services were slowed on the centrally located Island Line and the Kwun Tong Line across Victoria Harbor after black-clad protesters blocked doors and requested emergency assistance during the morning rush. There was yelling and confusion as commuters found themselves stuck in large crowds on subway platforms for the second time in less than a week.Although rail operator MTR Corp. said trains were resuming their normal schedules as of 11:30 a.m., such problems are expected to spread as protesters try to keep their grievances in the headlines and force a response by the city’s China-appointed government. The incident follows a weekend of rallies that saw a peaceful sit-in at Asia’s busiest international airport and sometimes rowdy mass protests that prompted police to fire tear gas in residential areas.The movement has proved surprisingly resilient more than eight weeks after as many as 1 million people took to the streets to oppose Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s now-suspended proposal to allow extraditions to mainland China. Authorities in Beijing have so far maintained their support for Lam, who has rejected demands that she resign, formally withdraw the bill and appoint an independent inquiry into the police’s use of force.Lam’s approval rating slipped another 2 percentage points over the past month to a record low 21%, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute, formerly the HKU Public Opinion Programme. The share of people satisfied with the local government’s performance remained at an all-time 18%, unchanged from the previous survey.Authorities were set to charge 44 out of 49 people arrested during Sunday’s clashes with police with rioting, the South China Morning Post reported Tuesday, citing an unidentified police source. The violence had erupted as officers fired volleys of tear gas at demonstrators in Sai Ying Pun, a residential and business area where the Chinese government’s liaison office is located. The people were expected to be brought to court on Wednesday, the newspaper said.China warned Monday that political unrest in the former British colony had gone “far beyond” peaceful protest, underscoring concern of more direct intervention. The demonstrations ultimately stem from anxiety that China has been eroding the rights and freedoms promised to Hong Kong before the end of colonial rule in 1997.Read more about the protests’ latest impact on Hong Kong stocksDuring Tuesday’s protests, services at the Lam Tin, Yau Tong and Tiu Keng Leng stations were suspended. At Tin Hau station on the Island Line, dozens of passengers were queuing up for refunds as train services were suspended.MTR Corp. shares added 0.1% as of 2.47 p.m. in Hong Kong trading, erasing earlier losses.“We understand some people want to express their view but we regret that their actions affected train services and other passengers,” Alan Cheng, MTR’s chief of operating, told reporters. He said platform safety devices had been activated 76 times during the morning, while train emergency buttons were triggered another 47.Protesters argue that they’ve been driven to guerrilla tactics because the former British colony’s unelected government is ignoring historic protests and the police are withholding protest permits and increasing their use of force. Since last month, different groups in the largely leaderless movement have surrounded police headquarters, mobbed government buildings and ransacked the city’s legislature.“Every confrontation between the protesters and the police has exacerbated their mutual hostility,” Hong Kong political commentator Joseph Cheng told Bloomberg Television in an interview on Tuesday. “It is difficult that there are no solutions in sight, no reconciliation process going on and it has become a test of wills.”While such tactics risk alienating the general public and causing further damage to the economy, the movement has also received support from the business community. The American Chamber of Commerce’s Hong Kong chapter on Monday urged an “internationally credible” independent inquiry into all aspects of the protest movement, saying action was needed to preserve the city’s strength as a global financial center.Earlier: AmCham Urges Hong Kong Action to Quell Growing Business ConcernsThe city’s otherwise model railway system has born the brunt of several recent incidents, including shocking mob attacks last week on protesters and other train passengers at a railway station in the northern suburb of Yuen Long. Protesters subsequently decided to disrupt train services to highlight the slow police response to the incident.The rail operator on Monday pledged a review of its safety procedures, a move the South China Morning Post newspaper said was prompted by strike threats and internal anger over criticism of a female train driver related to the Yuen Long incident. Last week, MTR chairman Rex Auyeung Pak-kuen endorsed calls for an inquiry into police action.“Hong Kongers only want police to do their jobs fearlessly in an unbiased manner and not serve their bosses in Beijing,” Max Chung, the organizer of the Yuen Long march, said Tuesday night after being released on bail. Chung had been arrested for inciting others to participate in an unlawful assembly, the city’s Now TV reported Sunday.(Updates with Max Chung comment in final paragraph.)\–With assistance from Sheryl Tian Tong Lee, Fion Li, Dominic Lau, Sofia Horta e Costa and Colin Keatinge.To contact the reporters on this story: Iain Marlow in Hong Kong at imarlow1@bloomberg.net;Simon Fuller in Hong Kong at sfuller37@bloomberg.net;Natalie Lung in Hong Kong at flung6@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at bscott66@bloomberg.net, Karen LeighFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
