Jerome Corsi is all atwitter with excitement over a British court case that he thinks might finally provide evidence for his birther delusions. Of course, the evidence is devoid of, you know, evidence. It’s a criminal case involving a man named Michael Shrimpton, who says he’s seen the proof that Obama was born in Kenya.
Shrimpton is a self-proclaimed “intelligence expert” in the UK who is on trial for allegedly making a fake bomb threat and he’s promising to defend herself by revealing all sorts of things. He never actually worked for any intelligence agency, but he claims to be privy to all sorts of things. That includes the thing that Corsi is all giddy about:
It’s the same Michael Shrimpton who appears in a 2008 video that began re-circulating earlier this year on the Internet in which he claims to have been privy to shocking intelligence information on Obama’s origins. Shrimpton contends to this day that the CIA collected DNA from then-Sen. Obama and a grandparent, establishing that Stanley Ann Dunham was not Obama’s biological mother.
The video naturally has raised questions about Shrimpton’s credibility and his qualifications to make such an extraordinary claim…
In the U.S., Shrimpton recently has drawn attention with the re-circulation of a video that shows him claiming that the CIA collected DNA from Obama and a grandparent in 2008 as Obama was running for president.
Shrimpton says he was informed that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya, in about 1960, which means, he said, the information sits in British intelligence files, because that territory was under the British Empire at the time.Shrimpton alleged that through DNA tests conducted during Obama’s initial presidential campaign, the CIA established Stanley Ann Dunham was not Obama’s biological mother.
He said Dunham was not pregnant in July 1961, yet it is claimed that she gave birth to Barack Obama Jr. on Aug. 4, 1961.
Shrimpton said it was his understanding that the DNA samples were collected at a fundraising dinner from water glasses that were bagged after the dinner…
In conversations with WND, nevertheless, Shrimpton doubled down on the claims he made in 2008 by asserting that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, as part of his negotiations to leave Hong Kong, agreed to deliver to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow the classified U.S. military intelligence file on Obama’s DNA.
Shrimpton made clear he intends to subpoena from the CIA and from British intelligence any records either agency may have on Obama’s DNA.
“I intend to stand by my allegations regarding the Obama birth certificate, knowing that U.S. intelligence agencies will prefer to characterize me as crazy and delusional rather than admit the CIA has the files I believe they have on Obama DNA,” Shrimpton insisted.
Let’s see…Snowden has documents proving that Obama was born in Kenya and he hasn’t released that evidence even while the Obama administration has demanded that he be returned home to face trial. That totally makes sense. Shrimpton produces not a shred of evidence for any of this, of course, but that seems not to matter to Corsi.
