Jerome Corsi Enters Plea Negotiations With Mueller

Will this one get to Trump? Author Jerome Corsi negotiating plea deal with Mueller

Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi's cooperation and Corsi's apparent willingness to strike a plea deal could shed light on Mueller's claim that the Trump campaign was linked to WikiLeaks' release of hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 presidential election. The Washington Post first reported Corsi's plea negotiations Friday.

Earlier this month Corsi said publicly that he expected to be charged with lying to federal investigators even though he was innocent of wrongdoing.

Corsi's role in the investigation largely revolves around the possibility that he was an intermediary between Stone - a longtime Trump ally and confidante - and WikiLeaks.

Earlier this month, Corsi said that he expected to be indicted, and according to the Associated Press, he has been cooperating with the Russian Federation probe since late August. Corsi said he had been contacted by the special counsel about possible charges, and the special counsel and Corsi's attorney had been in ongoing discussions.

"I fully anticipate that in the next few days, I will be indicted by Mueller, " he said last week, as he made a pitch for donations to his legal defense fund.




Stone has denied he had any advance knowledge of the Wikileaks emails and said a tweet about Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta's "time in the barrel" was related to research Corsi had provided him.

"If Dr. Corsi knew that John Podesta's emails had been obtained by anyone and would be published he never shared this information with me nor did he give me any such documents", Stone told The News.

Roger Stone, a longtime friend of President Trump and early player in his 2016 Presidential Campaign is likely to come under fire. Corsi said that after "40 hours" of interviews with the special counsel's team, they "seemed determined to find a connection with WikiLeaks and me".

Stone added that Corsi has been "under a tremendous amount of pressure and it is beginning to affect him profoundly" and that Corsi is "being asked over and over to say things he simply does not believe to have occurred".

Corsi would join a growing list of Republican political operatives and Trump advisers who face criminal charges and have been helping Mueller's investigators.
