Israel should not block entry to members of congress who support BDS. Israel has nothing to hide. It’s an open democracy. Allowing them in will expose their hypocrisy in boycotting Israel, while themselves demanding that they not be boycotted by Israel.

She adds to her guilt by association by breathlessly declaring that I had a massage in Epstein’s home by an adult therapist? She omits to mention that this occurred years before anyone suspected Epstein of misconduct and that my wife and daughter both received massages. 2/

Callie Crossley wants me to “be held accountable” because I represented Jeffrey Epstein and helped negotiate a deal of which she disapproves. This is McCarthyism pure and simple. 1/

and Rense say her death was 1975, it was 1983, nearly a decade after we were divorced. She should explain why she is relying on a Nazi site for her reporting. End/

I also pointed out that, statutory rape laws are applied quite selectively and often against young teenagers. That’s why I also say there are Romeo and Juliet exceptions. Lets debate not name call. End/

I challenge my readers to distinguish the cases, as a matter of constitutional law. I did not suggest that it is moral to have sex with a 16 year old, but rather that the issue presents a constitutional conundrum worthy of discussion. 2/
