Jerome Corsi’s lawyer whines that guilty plea would hurt his YouTube conspiracy theory business

Published

on

Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi’s attorney offered special counsel Robert Mueller a novel legal defense for why his client could not plead guilty for lying to the FBI.

“Mueller also sent Corsi a draft plea agreement stipulating that the special counsel would not oppose Corsi requesting a sentence of probation if he agreed to plead guilty to one count of lying to a federal investigator,” NBC News reported on Tuesday.

Corsi’s lawyer, David Gray, offered an intriguing response letter.

While Corsi would not serve prison time under the plea deal, it would hamper his financial rewards from spreading conspiracy theories on YouTube.

“Gray also noted that if Corsi were to plead guilty, he would have to give up his securities license and cease his online chats until sentencing, depriving him of crucial sources of income,” NBC noted.

As of publication, Corsi has 43,889 subscribes on YouTube.

In March, Corsi complained that he had been banned from YouTube.

His channel was subsequently reinstated, Gizmodo reported the next day.

“Though it’s not clear at this time why, the termination notice has been removed from Jerome Corsi’s channel,” Gizmodo noted. “YouTube has not replied to repeated requests for comment.”

Published

Ambassador Gordon Sondland will present "devastating" testimony, as evidenced by leaked copies of his opening statement.

Sondland directly will implicate President Donald Trump for a "quid pro quo" in his opening testimony.

Neal Katyal, the former acting Solicitor General in the Obama administration, offered his analysis of the testimony on Wednesday.

Katyal's analysis offers the implications for Rudy Giuliani, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who Katyal suggests will need to be subpoenaed by House Democrats.

Sondland says Ukrainians knew there was a quid pro quo for military aid — because he told them

Published

on

E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland's opening statement contains a blizzard of damning allegations about President Donald Trump and his immediate officials' conduct surrounding the withholding of foreign aid to Ukraine.

In particular, Sondland's statement directly contradicts a major talking point used by Republicans to defend the president: That there couldn't have been a quid pro quo to force the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, because the Ukrainians did not know the delay in military aid was linked to opening investigations.
