Virginia Giuffre said Alan Dershowitz had sex with her 6 times over 3 years from when she was 16 at Epstein home
Alan Dershowitz went on a tirade against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, calling him a 'self-hating Jew' on Newsmax on Friday, May 14. "Bernie Sanders, who’s Jewish, is a self-hating Jew, a self-hating Jew who is willing to see Israel be defeated militarily by a terrorist group because he’s on the hard left and he has to follow the hard left," he digressed while talking about Gal Gadot's comments on Israel and Palestine calling her an "antisemite" too.
Dershowitz's comments have often left many fuming with rage in the past. This includes the time he deemed George Floyd's murder accused Derek Chauvin "not a danger" and for all the times he's exhibited his loyalty to Trump publicly. However, one of the biggest controversies remains the accusations made against him by alleged Jeffrey Epstein Virginia Roberts Giuffre who claimed she had sex with him at Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell's direction when she was just 16.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, 35, now lives in Australia with her husband and together they are raising their family replete with three kids. She is working on developing a new website Victims Refuse silence. The website which still has some time before it goes live states, "our mission is to put an end to modern-day slavery, one survivor at a time".
Giuffre has continued to speak out against her alleged abusers. In a 2015 court affidavit, she had detailed her alleged sexual encounters with Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz. The lawyer was a part of Epstein's defense team and a frequent guest at Epstein's homes. Giuffre alleged she had sex with him at least six times, her first time being at 16 which by law is not the age of consent.
“I had sexual intercourse with Dershowitz at least six times," Giuffre wrote in the 2015 court affidavit. “The first time was when I was about 16, early on in my servitude to Epstein and it continued until I was 19," she explained saying these encounters happened at Epstein's home in Palm Beach, New Mexico, and on his private island.
Dershowitz has strongly denied these allegations made against him. In an interview with the Herald, he said, "The story was 100 percent flatly categorically made-up," and further claimed Giuffre and her lawyers made the claims so that they could extract money from the people she alleges she had sex with. “The only possible reason to accuse me in public and [them] in private is so she could get money,’’ Dershowitz added.
The lawyer claimed he received a massage at Epstein's Palm Beach home but not by Roberts or anyone underage. He also claimed his wife was present at the house when he received the therapy. “I never had any knowledge of Jeffrey Epstein having any contact with any underage women — ever," he said. In August 2020, a number of court documents related to Epstein and Maxwell were unsealed in federal court.
Dershowitz's name was yet again included in the documents as part of Roberts' testimony and once again he denied the allegations while trying to defend himself. "Virginia Giuffre is a serial liar who has deliberately made up stories about me and others in the hopes of cashing in on millions of dollars," he said. "She has roiled three continents with her accusations against politicians and other high profile individuals and yet the media has declined to conduct the kind of investigative reporting that it has rightfully done with regard to other accusers," he added. Dershowitz and Giuffre have sued each other for defamation and the lawsuit has resulted in several counter-suits between the two of them and their lawyers.
