Jeffrey Epstein lawyer Alan Dershowitz says billionaire pedophile did NOT kill himself
Alan Dershowitz, the former attorney for Jeffrey Epstein, said in an interview this week that the billionaire pedophile killed himself, but did so with the help of guards in his prison cell.
Dershowitz, a lawyer, Harvard Law School professor and author, appearing in an interview with Kim Iversen on Rumble, was quizzed on whether or not Epstein killed himself.
Just a week after Epstein’s death, Dershowitz confirmed he believed the criminal committed suicide.
When Iversen asked him on Friday, he initially said “no, of course not.”
He then clarified that Epstein may have conspired with his guards at the Manhattan Detention Center: “He didn’t kill himself without the help of some people. He committed suicide, but he committed suicide with the help of guards.

“He didn’t do it on his own, obviously the videos were turned off and the guards turned their backs and his cellmate left,” Dershowitz continued. “So I think he killed himself, but he killed himself with the help of some law enforcement people.”
Since pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his cell in a New York prison on August 10, 2019, conspiracy theories abound.
Officially, the 66-year-old tycoon committed suicide. But, given that he faced charges of trafficking underage girls for sex and the number of influential and powerful people from Prince Andrew to Bill Gates with whom he associated, the conspirators believe that some would have preferred him dead before he testified.
Last month, his former partner and co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell made a frank intervention from his prison cell.
“I believe he was murdered,” she said in a television interview. ‘I was shocked. So I wondered how it happened because. . . I was sure he was going to appeal.

A week after Epstein’s death, Dershowitz said he does not believe rumors that the 66-year-old was murdered at New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) last Saturday while awaiting trial for allegations of child sex trafficking.
The lawyer, who represented the billionaire in his 2007 trial for soliciting a minor for prostitution, said Epstein simply thought like the financier he was.

“I am not a conspiracy theory person. I think it was just suicide,’ Dershowitz told Page Six. “I think he killed himself because he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life in prison. He did a cost-benefit analysis and thought it was better to die.
Epstein allegedly attempted suicide on July 23 and was discovered semi-conscious on the floor of a cell he shared with an ex-cop awaiting trial in the murders of four people.
Conspiracy theories suggest Epstein may have been killed to protect other high-profile names in his circles who may have been implicated in crimes linked to the billionaire.
That inmate, Nicholas Tartaglione, has since been cleared of any wrongdoing in the incident, claimed by his lawyer.
Although Dershowitz agrees there was no one else involved, he believes further investigation is needed.
“There should be a thorough investigation. . . He should never have been taken off suicide watch,” he continued.
Prosecutors say Epstein sexually exploited dozens of teenagers at his homes in Manhattan and Florida between 2002 and 2005.

Virginia Giuffre claimed she was forced to have sex with famed American lawyer Alan Dershowitz. He accused Giuffre of being ‘a complete and utter liar’
He has denied the charges but faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted.
Epstein had created his own foundation, which donated $6.5 million to Harvard University to establish an “evolutionary dynamics” program.
The gift has earned praise from none other than renowned jurist and Harvard professor Dershowitz – who later represented Epstein when he was charged with sex crimes in 2007 – who described him as “brilliant”.
In 2007, Dershowitz, now 80, helped broker the plea deal that saw Epstein spend just 13 months in a Florida county jail after admitting a single state charge of soliciting the prostitution of a minor.
He also successfully helped British socialite Claus von Bulow overturn his conviction for the attempted murder of his wife and was part of OJ Simpson’s legal team when he was acquitted of the murder.
When some of Epstein’s alleged victims sued the pedophile following his 2008 plea deal that saw him escape heavy prison sentences, his ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell was accused of helping him to procure underage girls to abuse.
Virginia Giuffre – then known as Virginia Roberts – said in court papers she met Maxwell at Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago club in 2000, where the Brit recruited her to be the sex slave of Epstein. Maxwell denied the allegation, and the lawsuit was eventually settled out of court, with Giuffre’s comments being struck from the record by a judge.
Giuffre, alleged that she was forced to have sex with the famous American lawyer Dershowitz.
Giuffre said she performed sexual acts on Dershowitz, an allegation he has repeatedly and vehemently denied. He accused Giuffre of being “a complete and utter liar”.
Epstein’s accuser also makes allegations about Prince Andrew, former US senator and architect of the Northern Ireland peace accord George Mitchell, and former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson.
Dershowitz denies ever being friends with Epstein.
“I haven’t seen him in years,” he told the Post. “We never had a friendship. I have no personal feelings. He was a client and someone with whom I had academic contact. We had no personal relationship.
