    Joe Arpaio finished last in the Republican primary race to run for Jeff Flake’s senate seat. I speculate that Mike Zullo will find a new excuse not to release his secret evidence.

    Are you referring to the convicted criminal Joe Arpaio?

    Yes, that convicted criminal. The one who got beaten by two women in the primary.

    Ah, yes. That’s the one!

    Just wanted to make sure we were all talking about the same Joe Arpaio!

    Arpaio received only 17.5% of the vote in his supposed stronghold, Maricopa County. He actually fared better statewide (18.9%) than he did in Maricopa County. The only county that he carried is Yuma County.

    I had a brief email exchange with Corsi back in July 2012 after Zullo got nailed using the wrong race codes in the July 17, 2012 press conference. He promised me a big bombshell about Obama would come out on August 14th. It never happened of course.

    I hope he has fun before the grand jury Friday.

    Any new perp walks yet? The birthers promised us perp walks.

    I mean, besides the ones for Joe Arpaio, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, George Papadopolous, Michael Cohen, and a few obscure birthers.

    Those have all been good. A little short on the video. But still pretty good.

    Corsi’s attorney is trying to arrange a sit down with prosecutors instead of a grand jury appearance according to this Buzzfeed article.

    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetillman/two-people-subpoena-roger-stone-mueller-investigation

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation continues to circle around Trump ally Roger Stone — Jerome Corsi, a conservative author and conspiracy theorist with ties to Stone, was subpoenaed to testify this week, his lawyer said.

    Corsi is prepared to appear Friday before the grand jury and cooperate with prosecutors, his lawyer David Gray told BuzzFeed News. But Gray said they’re also trying to arrange a meeting with lawyers from Mueller’s office on Thursday, which could make a grand jury appearance unnecessary.

    Gray said he assumed special counsel lawyers wanted to ask Corsi about his communications with Stone — the two men know each other “personally and professionally,” Gray said — but he did not know for certain. Corsi plans to bring a computer and cellphone and turn over his communications with Stone, Gray said. He declined to discuss the substance of those communications, but said Corsi hadn’t done anything wrong.

    “I can say there was no criminal wrongdoing by my client and he intends to be fully cooperative with the special counsel’s office,” Gray said.

    The New York Times first reported that Corsi had been subpoenaed.

    Until he starts blathering on about birth certificates and he perjures himself, of course.

    We haven’t heard much from Gallups and Zullo since old Joe got trounced in the primary. Any day now?

    Pete September 12, 2018 at 8:41 pm #

    Tomorrow, probably.

    I hear Zullo and Gallups and Corsi and Joe Arpaio are just about to drop some major news regarding Barack Obama’s birth certificate that will be totally universe-shattering.

    They may need a few donations first, though.

    I have seen nothing more on Corsi going before the grand jury. He must be cooperating with the OSC.

    He said he would cooperate, but I doubt he has much to say.

    Cody Judy announced that he is a write-in candidate for the U.S. Senate in Utah.

    Does anyone want to propose an over/under line on how many votes he will receive?

    His Go Fund Me campaign still has received zero contributions.

    I will take the under on 1/2. Judy will screw up his own vote.

    I almost missed that his Go Fund Me campaign says that he has been “selling Meat in my SUV and Trailer.”

    One of the 27 announced candidates for the Senate seat is named Abe Lincoln Brian Jenkins, who will probably get more votes than Judy.
