EDITORIAL AND OPINION
There appears to be new bizarre developments in the burgeoning lawsuit against Jason Goodman of CrowdSource The Truth and George Webb of TruthLeaks. Goodman resides in New York City while Webb resides in Cobb Island, Maryland. The duo are primarily known for the closure of the Port of Charleston, S.C. on June 14th, 2017 via a “dirty bomb hoax”.
As George Webb will be added as a defendant in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) litigation against Jason Goodman, Webb is now threatening some kind of counter-lawsuit.
You both accused me of conspiring on the Port of Charleston story with Deep Uranium. No one will care but the judge. You have both made these accusations in writing which are completely false. This will come up in discovery if you continue to press this. The last time I checked, accusing someone of conspiring to create a hoax around a national emergency is a very serious charge. If you both persist in pushing these narratives, you leave me no option but to defend myself.

You guys really need to listen to the Judge’s recommendation. You are both accusing me of a conspiracy with the other guy! Deep Uranium was an FBI INFORMANT. He wouldn’t have told me so much about Imran Awan’s ammo business if Deep Uranium didn’t know that would be good bait. Look, I found the DNC pried hard drives and DNC blackberries at Imran’s house with a very credible witness. The FBI had no choice but to smear me with the Charleston thing. I was almost to Piketon, Ohio. Think about it. How would CNN and the New York Times have reporters at the ready for luring me out of a hotel to talk to a whistleblower? Think about it.
Meanwhile, Jason Goodman has apparently blocked any further e-mail communications that were part of settlement negotiations.

BACKGROUND ON JASON GOODMAN’S USE OF E-MAIL
The apparent blocking of e-mail to CrowdSourceTheTruth.org seems inconsistent with primary verbose e-mail messages distributed to a wide audience by Goodman.

Reply to the above message by Jason Goodman:
As a matter of interest to the military, law enforcement and government officials copied on this message, the anonymous sender is David George Sweigart. This individual has been spearheading a persistent harassment campaign against me for the past 12 months. I believe he is motived to do this because of my journalist endeavors to reveal criminal activity that I believe he and his associates are involved in. He is actively attempting to engage in two baseless, frivolous civil suits against me and has made multiple false statements in court submitted documents to do so.
He has made over 400 harassing, seemingly psychotic videos antagonizing and defaming me, naming me by name and falsely accusing me of a wide range of crimes in publicly posted videos with thousands of on line views. He is actively attempting to ruin my public reputation with lies and defund my business by harassing my associates and patrons.
In addition to suffering from what appears to be obvious mental illness, he is a sexual deviant, publicly admitting to wife swapping with his own brother George Webb Sweigart, also copied on this message.
David Sweigart lacks the confidence in his “information” to send a legitimate email from either his own address or a lawyer and opts instead, to use this anonymous “Spoliation Notice” account.
The bizarre irony here is that David Sweigart is actively and persistently engaged in spoliation of evidence including his harassing videos. I have preserved not only all video, email and other electronic activity I have engaged in for the past year, I have also preserved his harassing emails, videos and other communications. Just this past month, when he brought his frivolous civil suit in a poor attempt to frame me for a bomb hoax staged by his brother and their associates, I posted hundreds of his harassing videos to YouTube as evidence of his activities. Within hours, David Sweigart aggressively acted to interface with YouTube and have the videos removed.
I have done nothing of the sort. His most recent email, to which this is a response, is only more evidence of his persistent, ongoing harasment.
In my personal opinion he is a dangerous, mentally unstable menace and should be prosecuted for these actions. He has deliberately hidden any home or business address complicating the process of obtaining a restraining order against him.
I would welcome contact from any of the government, military or law enforcement officials copied on this email so I can share my evidence and hopefully gain your assistance in bringing the Sweigart bothers to justice. The Sweigart brothers are a danger to the public and possibly themselves and are engaged in what appears to be a range of criminal activities.
Thank you for your attention, I sincerely apologize that Mr Sweigart insists on wasting all of our time in this manner.
GOODMAN’S PER SE DEFAMATION
NEW YORK AND PER SE DAMAGES
Plaintiffs in New York defamation of character cases can sue for per se damages, which means the plaintiff doesn’t have to prove economic loss or injury because the defamatory statement was inherently harmful.
Under the per se standard, plaintiff can bring civil actions against defendants for making false, injurious claims regarding sexual morality, disease status, criminality or professionalism.
False Accusations—Defamation of Character by Libel or Slander
When one person makes false accusations against or statements about another and “publishes” those statements (by transmitting them to a third party by written word or word of mouth), and those statements damage the reputation, character or integrity of that person, the target of the statements may recover damages from the person who uttered the false statements. Such statements are called defamation of character.
