Conservative author Jerome Corsi was reprimanded by the judge in Roger Stone’s criminal trial Wednesday for treating the proceedings “like a free for all,” Law & Crime reports.
Corsi filed a motion Thursday requesting Judge Amy Berman Jackson to bring Stone into court to be questioned about two cars Corsi spotted parked near his home in New Jersey this week.
“They both lingered there for no apparent reason as if they were watching us and threatening us,” Corsi said.
Jackson in a minute order wrote Corsi was “not a party to this action, and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure do not permit intervention in a criminal case, so there is no legal basis to grant him permission to file his motion.”
“The fact that the Court previously granted the movant leave to file a submission as an amicus curiae with respect to a discrete legal issue then pending before the Court did not operate to designate the movant as an amicus curiae for all purposes thereafter, nor did it invite the movant to inform the Court of facts that he wished to bring to the Court’s attention on an ongoing basis,” she added.
Stone, a longtime Republican operative and Trump confidant, is accused of trying to cover up his efforts to gather information concerning hacked Democratic Party emails during the 2016 presidential campaign.
