Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz wants the FBI and federal prosecutors to open a criminal investigation into allegations he sexually assaulted two women, including one who was underage.
"All three of us have filed sworn affidavits in federal court. These affidavits are in irreconcilable conflict: I have sworn that I never met either of them; they have both sworn that I engaged in sexual acts with them. Either I have committed perjury or they have,” Dershowitz wrote in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Thursday.
Dershowitz has been accused of being involved in billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's alleged sex-trafficking ring by an attorney for one of Epstein’s victims. The lawyer, Paul Cassell, who represents Virginia Roberts Giuffre, in early March claimed in federal court that testimony from other witnesses will show Dershowitz's involvement in the alleged trafficking of "his close friend Jeffrey Epstein."
Dershowitz and his lawyers have requested the court release the trove of documents to the public in order to prove his innocence. He says being accused of sexual assault has left a stain on his career.
"There are some in the #MeToo movement for whom there is no such thing as innocence," he writes in the WSJ. "Despite having proved I never even met my accuser, my appearances on college campuses have been greeted with protests accusing me of being part of a 'rape culture.' . . . Someone has committed a serious felony, a crime against America's justice system."
