“Mr. Dershowitz, you’re the one making yourself look guilty. You make a succinct statement to the media that you’ll waive statute of limitations, but when confronted, you have a condition that can’t be met (like a Catch 22).

If the relevant time period is the Virginia Roberts years, does that mean you’ve had sex with someone other than you wife during your 28 years of marriage? You have yet to make a clean, clear, non-disputable statement. Then, your comments about never being on Epstein’s properties other than with your wife and daughter…followed later by telling Local 10 Miami that you did have a massage (with an adult woman) but you kept your underwear on…Huh? Was your wife there when you had that massage. No one thinks you’re stupid, but most people thinking you’re dancing. Around the truth, that is.”

You wake up on the day before New Year’s Eve to learn that two lawyers have filed a legal document that, in passing, asserts that 15 years ago you had sex on numerous occasions and in numerous locations with an underage female.
The accusation doesn’t mention the alleged victim’s name—she’s referred to as Jane Doe…
