One of Donald Trump’s foreign policy advisers has taken up the cause of Wayne Simmons, the former TV military analyst who stood accused of fabricating a career in the CIA as a paramilitary officer.
Joseph Schmitz, an attorney who was once the Pentagon’s inspector general, is serving as a “defamation counsel” to Mr. Simmons.
Mr. Schmitz told The Washington Times on Friday that the news media is falsely reporting that Mr. Simmons pleaded guilty to lying about a career in the CIA. Mr. Schmitz said that while Mr. Simmons pleaded guilty April 29 in District Court to various charges, he did not admit guilt on that charge.
Mr. Schmitz said the federal prosecutor in the case acknowledged at the pleading that Mr. Simmons “is not agreeing to that ultimate conclusion.”
