Former O.J. Simpson Lawyer Blames Holocaust Victims for ‘Suppressing’ Free Press
A lawyer who once represented notorious former football player O.J. Simpson implied in a recent interview that Jewish influence led the press to censor favorable coverage of the athlete after his famous murder trial in 1994, the New York Post reported on Sunday.
“Some of the people who claim that most of their lives they’ve been subjected to horrible kinds of prejudice and extermination during World War II are now behaving in exactly the same totalitarian spirit by suppressing the one thing this country has to be proud of when all is said and done, and that’s an unfettered free press,” claimed former criminal defense attorney F. Lee Bailey on an episode of the “Morano Whenever” podcast. Bailey was a part of O.J. Simpson’s defense team when he was accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. He was acquitted of double murder in 1995.
Bailey was disbarred years later after he refused to hand over assets that a subsequent client of his had agreed to forfeit to the government. Bailey declined to comment on his recent remarks, the Post said.
