Roger Stone Associate Jerome Corsi In Plea Negotiations With Mueller

Jerome Corsi arrived at the immigration department in Nairoby Kenya in 2008

"It's true. Your story is accurate", Roger Stone associate, conservative conspiracy theorist, and prominent "birther" Jerome Corsi told the Washington Post, confirming speculation that he is negotiating a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller.

"It is clear from his recent videos and his recent interviews that my friend Dr. Corsi has been under a tremendous amount of pressure and it is beginning to affect him profoundly", he told The Associated Press in a statement on Friday.

Corsi provided research on Democratic figures during the campaign to Stone, a longtime Trump adviser.

Journalists both on the left and on the right have wondered if Mueller's treatment of Corsi was setting up a chilling precedent for going after journalists to reveal their sources.

If Corsi were to cut a plea deal with Mueller and agree to cooperate with the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, he would be the 33rd individual defendant charged by Mueller's team.

It's also not known if any plea by Corsi signals a new raft of charges by the special counsel or just that investigators are aggressively pursuing cases against people they believe made false statements to investigators.

Ocasio-Cortez Calls on Progressives to 'Primary' Centrist Democrats — LURCHING LEFT
Fox News posted a screen graphic featuring Ocasio-Cortez, along with other young women of color who were nominated to Congress . In a recent story, she queried about whether the leftover macaroni and cheese in her refrigerator was still o.k.to eat.

If nothing else, Corsi's hypothetical plea deal and cooperation could be used to more clearly establish if and what President Donald Trump and his aides knew about WikiLeaks releases.

Corsi, the former Washington bureau chief of the conspiracy theory outlet InfoWars, has said he cooperated with the probe for about two months after he received a subpoena in August.

"I fully anticipate that in the next few days, I will be indicted by Mueller", he said.

In response to the claim from Stone that Corsi is only being "pressured" to say harmful things about him, Deutch said he wasn't surprised Stone would say that.

The special counsel has evidence that suggests Corsi may have had advance knowledge that the email account of Clinton's campaign manager, John Podesta, had been hacked and that WikiLeaks had obtained a trove of damning emails from it, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter told ABC News. 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".
