“They wanted me to be there. They called and asked me if I would be willing to testify, and I said I would. And then as a result of these false accusations against me regarding the Jeffrey Epstein matter, accusations which I have disproved,” Dershowitz told host John Catsimatidis on his AM 970 radio show on Sunday.

“Just because there is an accusation out there, the decision was made not to use me. Also, because the Republicans are only given one witness. If they had been given two witnesses, probably I would’ve been used along with Turley,” he said, referring to George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley who testified on behalf of the Republicans.

But Dershowitz said he would have disagreed with parts of Turley’s testimony at last Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing.
