Jerome Corsi Biography
Jerome Corsi(Jerome Robert Corsi) is an American author, political commentator, and conspiracy theorist. His two New York Times best-selling books, Unfit for Command and The Obama Nation, attacked Democratic presidential candidates and have been criticized for including numerous inaccuracies.
In other books and columns for conservative sites such as WorldNetDaily and Human Events, Corsi has discussed conspiracy theories, such as the alleged plans for a North American government; the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama is not a United States citizen; criticism of the United States government for allegedly covering up information about the terrorist attacks of 11th September 2001; and alleged United States support of Iran in its attempts to develop nuclear weapons.
In 2017, he became the Washington, D.C., bureau chief for the conspiracy theory website Infowars, but no longer works for the website.
In 2018 he was subpoenaed by the Mueller Special Counsel Investigation over his contacts with former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone and foreknowledge of WikiLeaks releases of stolen Clinton emails. Corsi continues to clearly state that he turned down a plea deal with Robert Mueller, and denied any such contacts or knowledge. While draft court documents released in November showed that he emailed Stone several times, updating him about impending WikiLeaks releases of leaked emails, there is no evidence to counter Corsi’s claims that he did not get information from Wikileaks.

Jerome Corsi Career
He started working in banking and finance in 1981.
Some of the investors blamed the organizers, including him, for their investment in the former Communist country.
Two investors sued Corsi and his partners, claiming that the organizers had given their personal guarantee backing up the investment, and won judgments against them.
Until his 2004 book, he was a financial services marketing specialist.
In January 2005, he told the Boston Herald that he planned to run for John Kerry’s Senate seat in Massachusetts in 2008 as a Republican or Independent candidate.
In January 2017, the Author announced that he was leaving his position as a senior staff writer for far-right fringe website WorldNetDaily to open and lead the Washington, D.C., bureau for conspiracy theory website Infowars. In 2019, he sued Infowars and Alex Jones for defamation.
Draft court documents
released in November, showed that two months before WikiLeaks released emails stolen from the Clinton campaign, Corsi sent emails to Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone informing him that WikiLeaks was going to publish the emails in two “dumps”, giving dates of the planned releases and that the “impact planned” would be “very damaging.” Stone also sent Corsi an email directing him to contact Julian Assange “and get the pending (WikiLeaks) emails.” Corsi told Mueller’s investigators he ignored the direction, but investigators found he had passed it to an associate in London, whom Corsi later identified as Ted Malloch, who had worked with the Trump campaign and been questioned by Mueller’s investigators in April 2018.
Jerome Corsi News
Jerome Corsi’s claims about Roger Stone, WikiLeaks, and the Access Hollywood tape explained
Corsi is “Person 1” in Stone’s indictment. I read his book. There’s some stuff in there.
Stone, who was arrested last week at his home in Florida, has long had one big question swirling around him: Was he was somehow involved in the “hack and leak”? That is the hacking of leading Democrats’ emails by Russian intelligence officers, the provision of those emails to WikiLeaks, and the eventual public release of those stolen emails.
Stone has denied any involvement. But Corsi — known as “Person 1” in Stone’s indictment — was questioned by Mueller’s prosecutors on this topic extensively, over multiple sessions late last year. In recent months, he’s gone public, giving many media interviews. He even released a book called Silent No More: How I Became a Political Prisoner of Mueller’s “Witch Hunt,” giving what he says is an account of what happened.
The book should be read with heaping piles of salt. Before Mueller’s investigation, Corsi was best known as the pundit who helped popularize conspiracy theories that claimed Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States and/or was a secret Muslim — neither of which was true. The new book, too, makes many claims about Corsi’s state of mind, intentions, and memories that don’t seem particularly believable.
But, interestingly, Corsi goes into a whole lot of detail about what Mueller’s prosecutors asked him, and what evidence they told Corsi they had. Here, Corsi makes some surprising disclosures — and admissions — that really could shed light on Mueller’s investigation.
These parts of Corsi’s book, which he says are based on notes his lawyer took during the questioning sessions, seem largely credible. Indeed, Corsi has already backed up some of them by releasing a draft plea deal document Mueller put together for him. That document really did provide us a glimpse into the investigation’s future — two months later, Mueller cited much of the same evidence the draft included for his actual indictment of Roger Stone.
Indeed, presenting accurate information about what Mueller has might be exactly what Corsi wants. By publishing this book, Corsi is publicly airing every detail he knows about what Mueller knows, and what areas of inquiry Mueller’s pursuing. Doing so could undercut the investigation. And if Corsi can make a lot of money from book sales at the same time … well, that’s a win-win for him. Unless, of course, he does end up getting charged.
What Corsi says he admitted about Stone and WikiLeaks
Corsi first went in to talk with Mueller’s prosecutors on September 6, 2018 — and he had little to offer. Asked whether he helped Stone get in touch with WikiLeaks, he denied doing any such thing. Instead, Corsi claimed, he warned Stone that such activity could expose him to surveillance and investigation.
Mueller’s team then broke off the interview, per Corsi, who writes that one prosecutor said they have “demonstrable proof that what you said was false.” They suggested he review his old emails and come back for another session. (This is all backed up by the draft plea deal document Corsi leaked. In fact, Stone had sent Corsi a July 2016 email telling him to “Get to Assange,” and Corsi forwarded it to an associate based in the United Kingdom, Ted Malloch.)
But before the next session, Corsi writes, Mueller prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky agreed to give Corsi’s lawyer David Gray more details about what to expect in the next session of questioning. According to Corsi, Zelinsky told Gray:
That they had evidence Corsi was telling multiple people (including Stone) that Assange had John Podesta’s emails, all the way back in August 2016, more than two months before that news became public.
That Corsi was even saying that Assange planned to release those emails in October, in a “drip-drip-drip” fashion (which proved spot-on).
That they had evidence that Stone called Corsi shortly before the Access Hollywood tape (the 2005 recording in which Trump bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy”) was released, and urged him to get word to Assange to start dumping the Podesta emails. (This is a particularly interesting claim because the first batch of Podesta emails was indeed released half an hour after the Access Hollywood tape was. There has long been speculation that the timing was connected, but there hasn’t been evidence to support that.)
In Corsi’s second round of questioning with Mueller’s team on September 17, 2018, he says he admitted that all this was true. He also admitted that he helped Stone concoct a “cover story” to explain away that suspicious Podesta tweet.
This would seem to suggest Trump associates had good advance information about the stolen (Russian-hacked) Podesta documents. It also suggests some sort of effort at coordinating the release of those emails to benefit Trump’s campaign.
