Report: Senate Intel Committee Subpoenas Roger Stone Associate Corsi

The Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, his attorney, Larry Klayman, told The Hill on Friday.

The committee asked for both an interview and documents from the Roger Stone associate in a subpoena received Thursday, according to Klayman.

Corsi is a “birther”-promoting conservative commentator who came under scrutiny in the Russia investigation for comments he made suggesting he had advance knowledge that Wikileaks planned to release hacked Democratic emails in the summer of 2016. Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch, is best known for filing frivolous lawsuits against political figures and government agencies.

Klayman told The Hill that he plans to fight the “overly broad” subpoena, calling it the latest example of the “continued harassment” the committee has directed towards his client.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed several associates of Corsi and Stone in recent weeks, including Corsi’s stepson, Andrew Stettner.

Corsi and Stettner reportedly exchanged text messages about a computer of Corsi’s being “scrubbed.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
