Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Right-wing author Jerome Corsi claims in a forthcoming book that he has a joint defense agreement with President Donald Trump and was provided limited immunity during his testimony before special counsel Robert Mueller's grand jury to discuss a "cover story" he claims he crafted for Trump confidant Roger Stone. Corsi, who has been interviewed six times in the investigation over the course of more than two months, writes in "Silent No More: How I Became a Political Prisoner of Mueller's ‘Witch Hunt,'" which The Daily Caller News Foundation obtained, that he entered into the defense agreement with Trump after being advised that Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, was interested in the arrangement.

Describing his interactions with the special counsel's office, Corsi claims he was granted what's known as "limited use immunity" for testimony he gave during his Sept. 21 grand jury appearance regarding his conversations with Stone about a Aug. 31, 2016 memo he wrote about former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Corsi testified that he and Stone hatched a plan in which Corsi would write a memo about the Podestas to allow Stone to cite it as the basis for his tweet. The revelation, if accurate, would undercut Stone's testimony to the House Intelligence Committee that opposition research on the Podesta brothers' business activities was the catalyst for the tweet.

And somewhat related:

Stone thinks the President is not going to run for re-election. He believes that Trump likes ‘the adulation part' of being President but not the actual governing. And: ‘He doesn't like the fact that half the people in the country hate his guts. He's hypersensitive to criticism. I could easily see him saying, "Well, I made America great, I'm heading to the golf course. Mike, good luck." ' Again, Stone says his opinion does not come from being in possession of inside information. In this case, it's a judgement he says comes from knowing Trump for some 40 years.

"joint defense agreement"

Corsi, Stone, Trump... what absolute pieces of unadulterated ----. I cannot believe that any American actually supports these twisted greedy freaks.

He may have lost that one, but he did get elected to Congress six times, Governor of Indiana once and Vice President of the United States once, so there is that.
