Rudy Giuliani Says Trump, Jerome Corsi Have Reached a Joint Defense Agreement
Rudy Giuliani has confirmed to reporters that Donald Trump‘s legal team is coordinating with Jerome Corsi as the conspiracy theorist comes under scrutiny by Robert Mueller.
The former New York City mayor-turned-Trump attorney told The Daily Beast that Corsi and the president’s lawyers have reached a joint defense agreement. This will allow both parties to share information with each other while they are being investigated by the special counsel.
The Beast reports that Giuliani told them he “talked about the agreement and Corsi with President Trump in recent days, and that Trump told him he ‘vaguely knows’ Corsi, but ‘doesn’t remember the last time they spoke.’”
Corsi recently claimed to have rejected a plea deal that would require him to testify before Mueller and answer questions about Roger Stone and his ties to Wikileaks. A draft plea agreement published by Washington Post Tuesday night revealed that Mueller is interested in an email exchange from 2016 when Corsi told Stone that Wikileaks would release a trove of emails that would cripple Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.
Giuliani says that Trump recalls how Corsi spent years advancing the birther conspiracy theory against former president Barack Obama. Critics frequently blast Trump for how many times he also pushed the idea that his predecessor was not a legitimate president.
