FBI testimony continues in Corrine Brown corruption trial; One Door finances outlined

Testimony got underway early Thursday morning in the first full day of witness testimony in the corruption case against former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown at the federal courthouse downtown.

FBI Special Agent Vanessa Stelly continued her testimony from Wednesday as the prosecution laid out their version of the facts in the case, continuing to look through Brown’s and her former chief of staff Ronnie Simmons’ bank records from 2012 – 2015. The pair is accused of raising money for a bogus charity and using that money to enrich themselves…

Stelly’s testimony continued for some time as she showed and explained several letters and flyers advertising One Door for Education and soliciting various donation amounts – one asking for $5,000 for a single event. She detailed how One Door paid $330,000 for several of Brown’s events, from bus trips for seniors to President Obama’s second inauguration to a golf tournament at TPC Sawgrass.

At a Marriott reception in 2014 in D.C., Stelly showed the court records and pictures of a $750 birthday cake for Brown’s daughter, Shantrel, as well as a drink called the ‘Queen Corrine,’ which was a strawberry bellini with sugar on the rim. It cost $10.

Naturally, the liberal media is ignoring this story. Lots more is going to come out. Stay tuned.
