Attorney Alan Dershowitz believes that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg could be disbarred for his case against former president Donald Trump. He appeared on the Fox News show with host Maria Bartiromo when he said that having Michael Cohen as a witness could damage the district attorney.

“I don’t think an indictment can actually come forward now after the comments made by [Robert] Costello,” the attorney said.

He said that “he has proved that the main witness is going to be a perjuring liar on the witness stand, and that puts the district attorney in a terrible position.”

“If he uses Cohen as a witness, he could actually lose his bar license. It’s unethical to put a witness on the stand who you know is lying, and he has to know that Cohen will be lying. Or he tries the case without Cohen, which would be very difficult, or he does the right thing: he drops the case,” he said.

Dershowitz, whose client list formerly included the late financier Jeffrey Epstein, made headlines recently during a tense interview.

Dershowitz made an appearance on the Kim Iverson Show this week and things were going fine until Iverson asked Epstein, who killed himself in 2019.

Iversen began the interview by asking about the Manhattan grand jury case against former President Donald Trump over the alleged “hush money” payment he made to an adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016, which was related to the alleged affair they had back in 2006.

Things took a turn when Iverson asked Dershowitz about his association with Epstein.

“Are you used to having people come on your show to talk about one subject and then sandbagging them on another subject without any warning?” Dershowitz asked as he was clearly upset. “This is the last time you’ll have me on your show.”

“I think I got what I needed out of you,” Iverson replies.

Dershowitz was also asked about Epstein killing himself.

“No. of course not— Wait, um, he didn’t kill himself without the help of some people. He killed himself with the help of um, guards.”

WATCH:

The former right-hand woman to Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, is locked away for nearly 20 years in prison, but several cases against Epstein are not going away.

Some have speculated that with recent lawsuits and court cases against Epstein and those who had connections to him, Maxwell could provide more information to help herself in the long run.

“Bill Clinton should be sweating bullets,” reporter Kari Donavan said. “It has long been suspected by court watchers that a notorious list of clientele for Epstein, allegedly including Clinton, would eventually emerge. The shocking warning came out of a new documentary that investigated the role of Britain’s Prince Andrew and his close ties as a client of Epstein’s, when the comments were made that there could be further revelations about other clients of Epstein’s because his madame – Ghislaine Maxwell – who was recently convicted for crimes associated with Epstein has until June 2023 to cooperate with prosecutors, in possibly overturning more names.”

“She is really the person who holds all the secrets,” she added. “This isn’t the end of the story.”

Maxwell, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence, has been moved to a low-security prison in Tallahassee, Florida. Maxwell will be eligible for release on July 17, 2037.

Explosive information has come to light as the public awaits the pending release of the full “client list” kept by the late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The U.S. Virgin Islands government has unsealed portions of the federal lawsuit that had previously been redacted, some of which shows former JPMorgan executive (and later Barclay CEO) Jes Staley’s relationship with Epstein.

Staley and Epstein exchanged roughly 1,000 emails between 2008 and 2012. Newly unsealed information reveals an odd exchange between Staley and Epstein, where they make references to Disney characters, according to Fox News.

“These women were trafficked and abused during different intervals between at least 2003 and July 2019, when Epstein was arrested and jailed, and these women received payments, typically multiple payments, between 2003 and 2013 in excess of $1 million collectively,” according to the unsealed passages.

Attorneys for JPMorgan responded in court to the US Virgin Islands, alleging the territory “did nothing to stop” Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation and is deflecting blame by suing the bank for facilitating the now-dead financier’s scheme.

“USVI’s lawsuit is a masterclass in deflection that seeks to hold JPMC responsible for not sleuthing out Epstein’s crimes over a decade ago,” attorneys for JPMorgan wrote in the filing. “Yet USVI had access at the time to the same information, allegations, and rumors about Epstein on which it alleges JPMC should have acted.”

“Having sought and obtained more than $100 million from Jeffrey Epstein’s estate and businesses for damages caused by his sex-trafficking crimes, the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) now casts farther afield for deeper pockets. USVI did nothing to stop Epstein during this period, notwithstanding the fact that he registered with the USVI as a Tier 1 sex offender,” JPMorgan’s attorneys wrote.

In another suspicious move, US Virgin Islands Governor Albert Bryan fired AG George after the lawsuit against JPMorgan was filed in December.

The island’s civil action comes on the heels of lawsuits filed in December by two women against JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank who also accused Epstein of sexual abuse, claiming that the financial institutions benefitted from the late pedophile’s sex trafficking.
