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.

While an impeachment inquiry is supposed to give more teeth to a Congressional investigation, the White House has still refused to cooperate, comply with subpoenas or even allow department staffers to appear and answer questions.

President Donald Trump appears to be waging his own war against Fox News hosts that report the factual news and not opinions.

Friday, longtime Fox newsman Shep Smith was officially released from his contract, at his request and fellow Fox staffers are warning it's only the beginning. But now, it seems the president is seeing his sights on ridding the network of anyone who doesn't parrot his policies, politics, talking points or dares to fact-check him.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit

Published

on

Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.

Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."

While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
