Mueller subpoenas ‘birther king’ Jerome Corsi in most shocking move yet

Published

on

The New York Times is reporting that special counsel Robert Mueller has issued a subpoena for right-wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, who is best known for promoting the unfounded theory that former President Barack Obama was born in Kenya.

Times reporter Maggie Haberman writes that Corsi is being subpoenaed by Mueller for his connections with infamous dirty trickster and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone, who has come under the special counsel’s microscope for his contacts with Russian agents during the 2016 presidential election.

Corsi’s attorney, David Gray, tells Haberman that his client will comply with the subpoena and that he will 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.

That massive scandal had been unfurling on its own for months, but it blew up Thursday when multiple reports revealed that a mysteriously suppressed whistleblower complaint in the intelligence community reportedly concerns Trump’s conduct and the country of Ukraine.

Legendary constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe explained the legality of President Donald Trump's claim to be above the law during a Thursday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

The host played a notorious clip of Trump.

"I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters. Okay? It’s like incredible," Trump argued.

"And now he has gone beyond that," O'Donnell noted. "Now the president is sayin, 'I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and I cannot be prosecuted for that crime. Or any crime.'"
