Jerome Corsi Sues Alex Jones, Infowars For Defamation

Courthouse News reports:

Escalating a feud among conspiracy theorists, Jerome Corsi and lawyer Larry Klayman brought a federal defamation complaint late Thursday against Alex Jones and his Infowars website. Though not himself indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Corsi is named as “person 1” in the indictment of Roger Stone, making him a likely witness to the alleged crimes committed by the longtime confidant of President Donald Trump.

Stone is not a party to Thursday’s suit meanwhile, but Corsi and Klayman claim that Infowars has given Stone a platform to “improperly influence the Mueller investigation.” Among other things, Corsi accuses Jones of having published defamatory statements about him, including that he “seemed to be extremely mentally degraded to the point of what I would call dementia.”

Also named in the suit is Alex Jones’ father and Infowars host Owen Shroyer. Last month Corsi and Klayman filed a $25 million defamation suit against Roger Stone.

Rather laughably for these two, the suit cites Sandy Hook and Pizzagate as other examples of defamation by Alex Jones. Corsi, as you surely know, was the main promulgator of birtherism and other insane claims about President Obama. Klayman wrote many World Net Daily columns accusing Obama of being secretly Muslim.
