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.”

When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.

‘Just like Brett Kavanaugh’: GOP candidate who pleaded guilty to sexual battery claims he was the real victim

Published

on

A GOP congressional candidate in Utah is comparing himself to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — favorably — to explain away his guilty plea to two counts of sexual battery, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Cory Green, an Army Reserve and Navy veteran and private security officer running for Utah's 1st Congressional District, was charged with forcible sexual abuse in 2010 after he allegedly brought two teenage masseuses to a Motel 6, performed a sex act with an escort in front of them, and then paid one of the teenage girls for sex. He insists that the girl lied about her age and that his victim extorted him.

Here’s what really went down with Trump’s Taliban peace talks misadventure

Published

on

Donald Trump is not known for finessing foreign policy but for years prior to his election and during his campaign, he was mostly right about Afghanistan. He called it a “total disaster,” said it was “wasting our money” and that we should leave “immediately.”

It seemed that Trump understood the timeless – if sometimes historically inaccurate - tropes about Afghanistan being the “graveyard of empires” and home to “ungovernable” tribesmen who could outwit and humiliate the British, the Soviets – and us.
