‘Birther king’ Jerome Corsi will not testify before grand jury Friday despite Mueller subpoena: report

Published

on

Jerome Corsi, the conspiracy theorist best known for falsely claiming that former President Barack Obama forged his birth certificate, will not be appearing before a grand jury on Friday, despite being subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Buzzfeed News’ Zoe Tillman reports that Corsi’s attorney now says his client will not testify in front of the grand jury, even though he claimed earlier in the week that Corsi would comply with the subpoena.

“Earlier this week, Corsi’s lawyer told us he was trying to set up a separate sit-down with Mueller’s office, which could make a grand jury appearance unnecessary,” Tillman reports. “But his lawyer isn’t commenting now on what happened.”

Corsi’s attorney, David Gray, told New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman that Corsi would be asked “about his discussions with Mr. Stone, who appeared to publicly predict in 2016 that WikiLeaks planned to publish material damaging to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”

In addition to his association with Stone, Corsi has also long worked with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who also promoted the “Birther” conspiracy theory throughout Obama’s presidency.

Leaked emails have revealed that Stone in 2016 bragged to an associate of having dinner with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, shortly before Assange started releasing emails that were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Stone subsequently went on Alex Jones’ radio show and told him that Russia was going to drop leaked emails that it had obtained from Clinton that he predicted would be devastating to her campaign.

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
