Alan Dershowitz claims that the sexual allegations against him are retaliatory and “secret” emails will soon clear his name.
The Harvard Law professor emeritus defended himself in an interview Thursday with WNYW’s “Good Day New York,” denying claims that he had sexual relations with underage women and contending that he has proof he is being framed.
“There are emails so far that are secret, but that prove, not only that I was framed, but who framed me,” Dershowitz said.
“It names names. These people are going to go to jail once these e-mails come out because this was a total frame up for financial reasons, and I can prove it, and will prove it,” he added. “Have me back on the show when the e-mails come out, boy it will be so interesting because there will be prominent people in handcuffs. Prominent people in handcuffs once these e-mails come out.”
The women accusing Dershowitz claimed they met him through Jeffrey Epstein, the multimillionaire sex offender from Florida who was Dershowitz’s client.
The allegations are “totally made up,” the prominent attorney said of the claims made by Virginia Roberts and then Sarah Ransome. In court documents in January 2015, Roberts claimed that she and Dershowitz had sexual encounters several times at different Epstein properties, as reported in part of a series from the Miami Herald.
“Look, as to the first woman who accused me, her own lawyer admitted in front of witnesses that she was wrong, just wrong, that I couldn’t have been in the places,” Dershowitz said on Good Day.
He had denied the allegations in an Op-Ed for the Miami Herald, saying he had proof his accuser had lied.
“I have a tape recording of a conversation with Roberts’ closest friend in which she says that Roberts told her she ‘felt pressure to go after [Dershowitz]’ in order to obtain money from a wealthy businessman,” Dershowitz wrote last month. “The evidence of my innocence is indisputable: I never met Roberts; I never had sex with her; she simply made up the entire story for money.”
He also denied allegations made by Ransome and claimed he never had sex with her and never even met her, accusing her powerhouse attorney, David Boies, of making up the stories to get back at him.
“The second woman,” Dershowitz told Good Day, “is a woman who wrote to the New York Post claiming she had video tapes of Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump having sex with underage girls. The New York Post said, ‘We don’t believe you.’ They wouldn’t even publish her story, but, she’s one of the people.”
Dershowitz explained that Boies “is furious at me because I filed Bar charges, unethical Bar charges against him.” He claimed that Boies “threatened me, that unless I withdrew the Bar charges he would find somebody else to accuse me.”
The legal scholar also laid out his views in multiple tweets last month, repeating his assertion that he was being framed.
5/ David Boies threatened to find another woman to accuse me if I did not withdraw a bar complaint that I had previously filed against him for falsely accusing me of sexual misconduct with another woman.

I challenge my false accusers to stop hiding behind the litigation privilege and accuse me in public so I can sue them and prove they are lying for money.

“There are hundreds of emails in which she claimed to have sex with everybody in the world,
Dershowitz said of Ransome. The emails have been kept under seal, he said, and therefore could not previously be made public.
