'That's Malpractice' Legal Experts Scoff At 'Informal' Joint Defense Agreement Between Corsi, Trump

The Mystery Of Jerome Corsi’s Joint Defense Agreement With Donald Trump

By Josh Kovensky

December 4, 2018 6:00 am

Noted conspiracy monger Jerome Corsi claims to continue to be in cahoots with President Donald Trump, offering a new, potentially dubious account of a non-written joint defense agreement with the president’s legal team.

But according to legal experts, any joint defense agreement not put down to paper would be highly problematic at best and, in the words of one former federal prosecutor, “malpractice” at worst.

Since going public last week with a draft plea agreement from special counsel Robert Mueller, Corsi has claimed that Trump attorney Jay Sekulow took care to make sure that a joint defense agreement between the two parties was never put down to paper, and remained oral.

In an interview Monday with TPM, Corsi said that Aaron Zelinsky, a prosecutor on Mueller’s team, first approached his lawyer about the existence of a joint defense agreement with Trump.
