Alan Dershowitz and Michael Avenatti Exchange Low Blows on Twitter, Invoking Criminal Charges and Pedophilia


Michael Avenatti, the embattled attorney for Stormy Daniels, may have retreated from a 2020 presidential run but he’s still charging into Twitter fights like the good old days.

On Sunday, Avenatti first issued a Twitter broadside against Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus and frequent cable news defender of President Donald Trump.

“Do you remember when you arrogantly mocked me repeatedly for stating last Spring that your bestie Trump would not serve out his term?” Avenatti asked Dershowitz. “Keep kissing his ass and maybe you can represent him before the Senate…”

Dershowitz fired back, making reference to Avenatti’s arrest for alleged domestic abuse: “I believe Trump will serve out his term. He is not my bestie. I voted against him. Civil liberties for all is my bestie — even for @MichaelAvenatti if he is charged.”

Avenatti responded in kind, referencing Dershowitz’s work for serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Dershowitz represented Epstein and helped him get a generous plea deal after the former hedge fund manager was accused of rape by dozens of underaged girls. One of the girls, Virginia Roberts, said Dershowitz had sex with her when she was underaged, a claim the lawyer has vehemently denied.
