Donald Trump certainly surrounds himself with a motley crew. There is his former personal attorney Michael Cohen aka “The Fixer,” Roger Stone aka “The Dirty Trickster,” Vladimir Putin aka “The Russian Dictator,” Rudy Giuliani aka “The TV Attorney,” and now here is Jerome Corsi aka “The Birther Conspiracy Theorist.” Trump fell upon the Birther movement and rubbed it all over himself to get his catapult into politics. Who is this Corsi?
Jerome Corsi said the FBI was allegedly “surveilling his family,” according to the host of Jennifer Regan Primetime on Fox. She tweeted Corsi saying “Harassing my family is beyond bounds:”
‘[email protected]_corsi on the FBI allegedly surveilling his family: “I’ve got evidence that the FBI and Mueller’s team are now harassing my family. They’re doing door knocks on my stepson, they’re parking surveillance vans with two agents… Harassing my family is beyond bounds.” ‘

Conspiracy theorist Corsi was responsible for swift-boating Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004. He took a positive Vietnam War act for Kerry and turned it into a vote-killing flaw. The Massachusetts senator lost.
Corsi created President Barack Obama’s birther conspiracy, which is “a grotesque falsehood,” according to The New Yorker magazine. He published a best-selling book in 2008, The Obama Nation, which said that Obama was:
‘…a corrupt, enraged, anti-American, drug-dealing, anti-Israel, pseudo-Christian radical leftist, black militant, plagiarist, and liar, trained as a Muslim and mentored by a menagerie of Marxists, Communists, crypto-Communists, and terrorists.’
Trump used this terrible political lie to make his 2016 presidential run. Corsi, 72, holds a doctorate in political science from Harvard which mistakenly added credibility to his work. Now, he is in special counsel Robert Mueller’s radar as a link to Trump confident, Roger Stone. In fact, he may be one of the hidden links between Trump and Russia.
After all, Corsi predicted the Russians would hack Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta’s e-mails, and WikiLeaks originator Julian Assange would acquire them. Some coincidence.
Twitter world went wild over Corsi’s alleged claim. Check out some of our favorites below:
