Garrett Graff: “One of the most surprising decisions at the close of the Mueller investigation was the lack of further indictments. But conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, at least, appears to still be very much in the sights of prosecutors. In fact, the very first mention of Corsi’s name appears in a redaction labeled ‘Harm to Ongoing Matter.’ (We know that because we only see the ‘second’ reference to Corsi’s name appear in a paragraph on page 54 of the first volume of the report.) Elsewhere, Corsi’s name is clearly hidden in other redactions, as context clues make clear he’s the ‘ongoing matter’ under question.”
Jerome Corsi, who is listed as “Person 1” in the indictment of Roger Stone, is suing Stone, accusing him of defamation for repeatedly saying that Corsi lied.
“In a blockbuster interview, key Mueller witness and Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi admits to MSNBC that he lied to Congress, that he tried to get stolen Clinton emails back to the Trump campaign in 2016, that he ‘absolutely’ intended to help the Trump campaign by doing so, that he told Roger Stone about John Podesta’s emails and that his lawyers are still communicating with Trump’s legal team ‘as if’ there is a joint legal defense.”
President Trump, who built his political rise on promoting far-right birther claims against President Obama, does in fact have a joint defense agreement with leading birther conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, the Daily Beast reports.
“Two months before WikiLeaks released emails stolen from the Clinton campaign, right-wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi sent an email to former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone anticipating the document dump,” according to draft court papers obtained by NBC News.
Wrote Corsi: “Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I’m back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging.”
Meanwhile, draft court filings obtained by CNN outline significant insights into what special counsel Robert Mueller may know about Stone’s efforts to seek documents from WikiLeaks in 2016.
An associate of Roger Stone told CNN that he is refusing to sign a plea deal offered by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Jerome Corsi, whose role in Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election largely revolves around the possibility that he was an intermediary between Stone and WikiLeaks, said he was offered a deal to plea on one count of perjury.”
Said Corsi: “They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie.”
“Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi said Friday he is in plea negotiations with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office,” CNN reports.
“Corsi, confirming an earlier Washington Post report, declined to comment further.”
Last week, he said publicly he expected to be indicted by Mueller for “giving false information to the special counsel or to one of the other grand jury.”
Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist linked to Roger Stone and who was subpoenaed to testify in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, told ABC News that he’s expecting an indictment from the special counsel soon.
Jerome Corsi, an associate of political operative Roger Stone, met Friday with a federal grand jury convened to hear testimony in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling, appearing at the U.S. District Court House in Washington, D.C., ABC News reports.
“Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist and political commentator with connections to the former Trump adviser Roger Stone, has been subpoenaed to testify on Friday before the grand jury in the special counsel investigation into Russia’s election interference and whether Trump associates conspired with the effort,” the New York Times reports.
“Mr. Mueller’s team appears to be zeroing in on Mr. Stone as a possible nexus between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks, which was used by Russian intelligence officers to spread information stolen from Democrats.”
