I spotted this at the Daily Mail:

The news here -- and I use that word loosely -- is that, yes, Jerome Corsi is planning to grace yet another presidential election with a book trashing the Democratic nominee. This one will be called Partners in Crime: The Clintons' Scheme to Monetize the White House for Personal Profit. It'll be out on August 1, and it seems like a poor man's version of Peter Schweizer's higher-profile Clinton Cash, which netted the author exclusive deals with The New York Times and other news organizations, and was a principal source for a Donald Trump speech.

How are the mighty fallen. Twelve years ago, a book Corsi co-authored, Unfit For Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry, was a key part of a massive, highly successful campaign to discredit a Democratic nominee. The book was also a #1 New York Times bestseller.

But Corsi couldn't repeat the magic with Barack Obama -- The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality had no impact in 2008, and Where's the Birth Certificate?: The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President, published a year before the 2012 election, failed to move the needle as well (possibly because the best-known birther, Donald Trump, chose not to launch a presidential bid in that election cycle).

Now, I suppose, Corsi does this strictly for the grift. He's not going to sway the election. This book will be a nice premium for subscribers to various wingnut sites and periodicals, however, so it's a living.

These assclowns are relentless:
In pursuit of the cause(s)!
But more importantly, in the pursuit of the grift's that are associated with their causes!!!
