2 lawyers on Trump defense team shared Epstein as a client
Dershowitz and Starr, both prominent lawyers, are expected to play key roles when Trump’s legal team begins presenting its defense on Saturday. Epstein, a hedge fund manager who worked with the super wealthy, over the years socialized with Trump, Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew. He killed himself in August while in federal custody as he awaited trial on a new set of federal sex trafficking charges that could have sent him to prison for life. In the past, he has vigorously defended the plea agreement that he and others on Epstein’s legal team negotiated. Epstein later hired him to serve on his legal team.
