Jerome Corsi accuses Roger Stone of trying to make him have heart attacks in bonkers defamation suit

Published

on

Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, who is best known for peddling the false claim that former President Barack Obama was born in Kenya, has now filed a $25 million defamation lawsuit against one-time ally Roger Stone.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports that the lawsuit accuses Stone of “attempting to give [Corsi] a heart attack to prevent him from testifying in the special counsel’s case.”

According to the lawsuit, Stone tried to induce cardiac arrest in Corsi via the “intentional infliction of emotional distress and coercion and threats,” which he claims Stone carried out relentlessly in the weeks leading up to Corsi’s testimony before special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury.

Among several other charges, Stone was indicted on one count of witness tampering for allegedly threatening to kidnap the dog of past associate Randy Credico, who has also been a witness before Mueller’s grand jury.

The lawsuit also accuses Stone of using right-wing media personality Cassandra Fairbanks to damage Corsi’s reputation. Corsi, for his part, claimed in an interview over the weekend that Fairbanks “told him in 2018 she had sexual relations with [WikiLeaks founder Julian] Assange when she visited him at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.”

Fairbanks, however, has denied Corsi’s claims.

President Donald Trump continues to defy presidential norms.

Boston Globe’s Michael A. Cohen wrote that Trump's behavior would be laughable if it weren't so dangerous for Americans. Cohen explained that in one week, President Trump has shown to put his interest above the U.S.

Trump started the week by telling ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he would take dirt on a rival from foreign operatives. He also downplayed the threat of North Korea.

Trump expert Tony Schwartz reveals ‘all you need to know’ about the president

Published

on

The co-author of the president's 1987 autobiography Trump: The Art of the Deal on Friday revealed "all you need to know" about the commander-in-chief.

Tony Schwartz offered advice on how to respond to Trump as his behavior becomes even more erratic.

"As we all know, Trump is shameless and compulsive liar. Here's the solution: ignore everything he says -- everything," Schwartz counseled.

"Don't waste any energy in outrage," he continued.

"Just know nothing he says is ever true," Schwartz said. "That's all you need to know."
