Right-Wing ‘Birther’ Conspiracy Theorist Jerome Corsi Is At It Again



Jerome Corsi

Conspiracy theorist Dr. Jerome Corsi has released new book on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy called, “ The Assassination of John F. Kennedy-The Final Analysis.”

A brief review of Corsi’s new tome indicates that the former Infowars Washington Bureau Chief and right-wing gadfly has turned up nothing new or notable in the area of JFK assassination research.

Corsi is the originator of the entire “Birther” movement in the United States, fueled by the false claim that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States, but rather was born in Kenya.

Corsi’s book ‘Where is the Birth Certificate?‘ went on to catch the eye of New York real estate mogul Donald Trump, who began talking publicly about his doubts regarding Barack Obama’s birthplace in 2012, demanding that Obama make his birth certificate public.

Corsi’s theory crashed when Obama released a birth certificate while Trump was making an exploratory trip to New Hampshire to examine a potential 2012 Presidential candidacy which never materialized.

Corsi next made news headlines when it was revealed that the far-right journalist had told prosecutors in Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion investigation that longtime Trump friend Roger Stone had contacted him the morning the infamous NBC – Billy Bush “grab ’em by the p****” video was released publicly.

The conspiracy obsessed Corsi alleges that Stone urged him to contact WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange in order to push him to expedite the release of emails WikiLeaks had obtained from Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. The emails were later regarded as extremely damaging to the Clinton campaign.

Stone vehemently denied Corsi’s claim, which was widely covered by MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and others. Strangely, Corsi was never called as a witness in the trial in which Stone was convicted of lying to Congress about his knowledge of the Wikileaks disclosures.

Stone would later be pardoned by President Donald Trump and the release of the unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report showed that Mueller had found no evidence of Russian collusion, as well as no coordination between Stone and WikiLeaks, indicting Stone solely on a process crimes.

The widely reported claim that Stone had coordinated the timing of WikiLeaks damaging disclosures about Hillary Clinton to benefit Donald Trump has been proven false.

Mueller’s final unredacted report, which was released on November 3, 2020 only because Buzzfeed sued the Department of Justice for its release, said of Stone’s alleged request that conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi reach out to Assange on Oct. 7, 2016,

“The day the Access Hollywood tape of Trump was made public, the investigation did not establish that Corsi actually took those steps,”

“Neither Corsi’s testimony nor other evidence currently available to the Office is sufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Stone knew or believed that the computer intrusions were ongoing at the time he ostensibly encouraged or coordinated the publication of the {Wikileaks released} Podesta emails.”

Stone was so vehement in his denials that Corsi sued Stone for defamation, a lawsuit that was later dismissed, with the Judge ordering Corsi to pay Stone’s legal fees. Stone’s attorney told Slingshot News that Corsi has still not paid Stone.

    This very biased and slanderous article is in bad taste. Just because Stone and Corsi are at odds is not worth Slingshot sacrificing it’s journalistic integrity. I expected better from Troy Smith.
