A day after he wrote an essay defending Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime girlfriend and alleged pimp of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, attorney and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz is now saying he hopes Epstein made videos of all the men who had sex at his homes or aboard his private plane.
On Twitter Sunday, Dershowitz posted this bizarre “hope” of his:
I hope Epstein made videos
There have been suggestions that Epstein made secret videos of all the men who had sex in his houses and planes. I hope he did and they are all revealed, because they will prove I am not among them. I hereby waive any right of privacy in Epstein videos.

Where did that come from?! And how do we know it’s not just classic misdirection and an attempt to hide his own possible involvement in potentially illegal activities? After all, Dershowitz defended Epstein during some of his legal troubles. Could this be a preemptive strike to divert attention away from the professor?
It didn’t take long for social media to remind Dershowitz that there are plenty of whispers about things he may have done while traveling or hanging out with Epstein. Dershowitz has even admitted he received “massages” from women, but always kept his underwear on:
But why were you there for massages to being with? Massages for which you bothered to tell us you did not take off your underwear?

I’d expect a “law professor” to know absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. It’s impossible to prove that “they (secret videos) are all revealed,” due to things like, oh, let’s say, “erasure.” And “secret.”
This says “You got rid of those, right?”
Not “I wasn’t there.”

You don’t seem like you’re freaking out at all

Am not a constitutional law professor but I’m pretty sure you have the right to remain silent, bb.

Did he ever tell you he made videos? You were his attorney.

I loathe you, my man, but seems best for you to, I dunno, keep quiet right now. But you do you!

Something strange is going on with Dershowitz. And at this point all we can really hope for is that Ghislaine Maxwell lives long enough to testify against everyone who took part in Epstein’s disgusting and illegal activities.
