RUSSIA INVESTIGATION Associate of Stone's seeks plea deal from Mueller

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

A conservative writer and associate of Trump confidant Roger Stone said Friday that he is in plea talks with special counsel Robert Mueller's team.

Jerome Corsi, conspiracy theorist and ally of Roger Stone, is reportedly in plea negotiations with the special counsel's office. He said on a YouTube show earlier this month that he expected to be charged with lying to federal investigators, though he said at the time that he was innocent of wrongdoing.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team of prosecutors have questioned several associates of Stone as part of their investigation into alleged Russian interference with the 2016 United States presidential election and whether Trump's election campaign team colluded with Moscow.

The Post reported on Friday that the deal between Corsi and the special counsel was not yet complete.

Corsi, who found a friend in Trump over their shared interest in the false theory that President Barack Obama wasn't born in the US, said on his radio show that he had been cooperating with Mueller's team for months and described it as "one of the most frightening experiences" of his life.

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. "He looks like he has been squeezed, but as far as I know, he refuses to lie", Stone said.

Without offering any evidence, U.S. intelligence agencies have claimed that Russian intelligence agents hacked Podesta's emails and used WikiLeaks as a "cutout" to publish them in October 2016.

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.

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. "And it's, I think, further proof that there is real concern about the ability of Robert Mueller to draw that line from the Russians, to WikiLeaks, to Corsi and Stone, to the president".

Mueller's team questioned Corsi as part of an investigation into Stone's connections with WikiLeaks.
