The former lawyer of Jeffrey Epstein, Alan Dershowitz, has himself & # 39; victim of the # MeToo movement & # 39; declared Virginia Roberts & # 39; claims against him as a & # 39; extortion plot slammed shut during a passionate speech at a conservative conference.
Dershowitz, 80, has been accused of having sex with Roberts several times when she & # 39; sex slave & # 39; of pedophile Epstein was ashamed.
He has repeatedly and publicly defended himself, branded Roberts as a liar and attacked her again during a keynote speech at the Steamboat Institute in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, on August 23.
Dershowitz called her a & # 39; serial liar & # 39; and said they & # 39; no proof, no proof and no witnesses & # 39; had.
It is because dozens of Epstein accusers were invited to speak to Judge Richard Berman on Tuesday, just over two weeks after the financier died of an apparent suicide.
Alan Dershowitz called her a & # 39; serial liar & # 39; and accused Virginia Roberts (right) and said she & # 39; no evidence, no evidence and no witnesses & # 39; he had sex with her
In his speech at the conference, Dershowitz claimed that Roberts admitted in an email from 2011 that she did not know who he was and was later encouraged to make claims against him by her lawyers.
This, he maintained, would allow Roberts' lawyers to shake off other people associated with the scandal, such as Victoria Secret boss Lex Wexner, & # 39; by telling them & # 39; what happened to Dershowitz.
Dershowitz and Prince Andrew have been accused of repeatedly having sex with Roberts.
But in the keynote speech in Colorado, the lawyer said: & I have never met the woman. I've never heard of her. We recently received a few e-mails that were sealed. They (Roberts' lawyers) tried to seal them, but we summoned them.
& # 39; She admits in 2011, nine years after she said she had sex with me seven times in places I never was, in 2011 she writes an email stating that she has never heard of me.
Dershowitz is the former lawyer of pedophile Epstein
& # 39; She must be told & # 39; & # 39; oh Dershowitz, he is the man who represented Claus von Bülow, he is famous for putting him in your book & # 39; & # 39 ;. This is all in emails. & # 39;
Dershowitz also claimed that he asked former FBI chief Louis Freeh to investigate the allegations against him and said that there is absolutely no truth in the allegations. used to be.
He added: "She didn't have sex with me, she once met me with Jeffrey Epstein and a few years ago when she met her lawyers, she suddenly remembers, she wakes up" & # 39; Oh yeah the guy I've never heard of, I've had sex with him seven times & # 39; & # 39 ;.
& # 39; My names have been deleted, I don't have to delete my name. Why does everyone believe her?
& # 39; We live in a world where evidence no longer counts and I will fight it. & # 39;
On Tuesday, Roberts spoke to dozens of other women who had been invited to court by Judge Richard Berman, who had dealt with Epstein & # 39; s criminal human trafficking case that, in light of his suicide earlier this month, will now end.
After the hearing, she said it was important for authorities to continue their investigation into the Epstein network.
Roberts, now 35, said Epstein her as his & # 39; sex slave & # 39; when she was a teenager. She is shown on the right in a notorious photo with Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell, the friend of Epstein and alleged madam, in 2001
Virginia Roberts said that Prince Andrew & # 39; knew exactly what he did & # 39; and urged him to come clean & # 39; & # 39; on Tuesday after a hearing with other Jeffrey Epstein victims. Andrew is shown on Tuesday
& # 39; It is not how Jeffrey died, but it is how he lived, but we must deepen everyone involved, starting with Ghislaine Maxwell and going there.
& # 39; I was recruited from Mar-a-Lago at a very young age and trapped in a world I didn't understand. I'm still fighting that world. I will never stop fighting, I will never be silenced until these people are brought to justice, & she said.
When she stepped off the stage, she was asked about Andrew. After a moment's hesitation, she said: & # 39; He knows what he has done and can confirm that.
& # 39; He knows exactly what he did and I hope he comes across as clean. & # 39;
Gloria Allred arrives in court on Tuesday with four unidentified women. She said earlier that she represented four previously unnamed victims of Epstein. The mother who brought her child was not identified
The victims have asked for the investigation of his crimes to continue so that anyone who facilitates those who are still alive will be brought to justice. Many of the victims are still planning to sue the late pedophile's legacy for $ 577 million. Tuesday's hearing was the first time many had told their stories.
In their statements, they beat Epstein as a & # 39; coward & # 39; and they said he had robbed them of their innocence & # 39 ;.
Epstein is suspected of committing suicide in his cell earlier this month.
Some spoke out for the first time, including Chauntae Davies, who worked as a flight attendant on his private plane, & # 39; the Lolita express & # 39; called. Davies, who agreed to be named, said that like dozens of others, she was also paid by Epstein to perform erotic massages when he raped her for the third or fourth time they met on his private Caribbean island.
Another woman, who remained anonymous, said she was 15 when Epstein flew her to a ranch where she had been sexually abused for hours, insisting that he helped her grow.
Teala Davies was 17 when she became the victim. She said she thought Epstein was the most powerful person in the world. Afterwards she said: & # 39; The only thing I'm going to say today is a day of strength and power. & # 39;
