By now, it is apparent that Robert Mueller has been unable to prove that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia, because they did not, so he has resorted to the despicable and desperate tactic of threatening people with life in prison if they don’t cooperate with him in implicating President Trump in a crime.
One such person is Jerome Corsi, the former Washington bureau chief of Alex Jones’ controversial site, InfoWars, who filed a lawsuit on Sunday which claims that Robert Mueller threatened him with prison unless he agreed to falsely confess to being a liaison between WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Republican political strategist Roger Stone, who was an adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign.
Corsi blasted what he called the special counsel’s “completely fraudulent” threat to charge him with providing a false statement.
“The special prosecutor allowed me to amend the testimony about 10 days later,” Corsi told FOX News’ Tucker Carlson. “And then in the one count they wanted to plead guilty to, they want to charge me with knowingly and willfully giving false information on the original days mistake not taking into account that they had allowed me, the special prosecutor, to amend the testimony, which I thought was completely fraudulent.”
Corsi discussed the matter with Tucker Carlson, on Fox News ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ show:
The suit, which seeks $100 million in actual damages and $250 million in punitive damages, also accuses the FBI, CIA and NSA of having placed Corsi under illegal surveillance “at the direction of Mueller.”
The illegal surveillance and blackmail operation, the suit alleges, aimed to bring about a “legal coup d’etat” which would challenge Trump’s legitimate electoral victory.
Corsi became a person of interest in Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin after it emerged that he sent an email alerting Stone that Wikileaks planned to release emails stolen from John Podesta – two months before the secrets-leaking site did so.
In November reports emerged that Corsi was negotiating a plea deal with Mueller, but a deal appears to have never been reached. Last week, Corsi filed a formal complaint with the Justice Department alleging prosecutorial misconduct by Mueller and his team.
President Trump has repeatedly called the Mueller probe a “witch hunt” instigated by Democrats.
