Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Corsi, Klayman Sue Alex Jones

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Corsi, Klayman Sue Alex Jones March 8, 2019

I have to avoid putting salt on my popcorn these days, but I’ll be stocking up on it for this one. Ridiculous conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi and his ridiculous conspiracy theorist lawyer, Larry Klayman — the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Stave — have sued ridiculous conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for defamation.

Jerome Corsi sued InfoWars founder Alex Jones on Thursday, heating up the feud between two of the nation’s top conspiracy theorists.

Corsi and his lawyer, conservative activist Larry Klayman, are both named as plaintiffs in the case against Jones, InfoWars, Jones’s father David Jones, and InfoWars host Owen Shroyer. The complaint alleges that the defendants defamed Corsi and Klayman by questioning their mental fitness, with Jones saying that Corsi has dementia and has become “extremely mentally degraded.”…

In their lawsuit, Corsi and Klayman allege that Jones and InfoWars are hurting their careers as rival right-wing commentators, costing them “financial support and sales.”

I haven’t seen the actual complaint because it’s not on Klayman’s website yet, but I imagine they’re demanding a bajillion gazillion dollars, or something. Here’s my favorite part of this article, though:

[Roger] Stone has also attacked Klayman, a right-wing lawyer notorious for his courtroom antics.

“He’s an egomaniac, and he could be the single worst lawyer in America,” Stone said in one video mentioned in the lawsuit. “With him as Jerry Corsi’s lawyer, Corsi may get the electric chair.”

Stone doesn’t exactly ooze credibility, of course, but when he’s right, he’s right. That’s just hilarious.
