ALEX JONES (HOST): Dr. [Jerome] Corsi’s our guest right now. The main reason I got him on this morning is we were approached by folks at the White House at the inauguration saying, “Hey, who’s your White House correspondent going to be?” And they already thought I had a D.C. office, and I’m like, “No, we got to get a D.C. office. I don’t know if I’m going to do it.” The media took that and ran and said, “Oh, Jones says he’s getting them but he doesn’t have them.” You’ve got to have an office, you’ve got to have a driver's license there. Well we got a weekly pass. Corsi’s had stuff like this before, he’s got congressional passes, he’s covered the campaigns, he’s been one of the top political pundits in the country, everybody knows that. And so he got around to getting it. All hell broke loose. Some publications tried to imply we were lying and he wasn’t even there. The truth is most days there’s not even a reason to be there because the president’s gone right now anyways. So this is Corsi that broke three months ago they’re stealing the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac money. [Treasury Secretary Steven] Mnuchin confirmed that three weeks ago and we got credit. Most of the meetings don’t happen at briefings, they happen at dinners, like he was at one with the vice president a few nights ago. Oop, maybe I’m not supposed to say that.
