As special counsel Robert Mueller contemplates who he will go after next, he found out he is not exempt from getting his name slapped on a lawsuit.
After Mueller allegedly tried to get Jerome Corsi to make false statements about President Donald Trump, Corsi has hit Mueller with a $350 million lawsuit.
No False Statements
According to Corsi, when he was called in by Mueller, he was being asked to make statements he knew not to be true.
Corsi outright refused, saying he would rather go to jail for the rest of his life than knowingly sign something that was not true.
“They want me to willfully say I lied. I did not intentionally lie to the special counsel,” Corsi stated.
He added, “I’m not going to agree that I lied. I did not. I will not lie to save my life.”
Corsi was not kind in describing his experience with the Mueller team.
He likened it to “being interrogated as a POW in the Korean War.”
This move by Corsi seems to be a preemptive strike against Mueller and this special counsel.
By refusing to accept the plea deal offered to him, it would not be all that surprising to see Mueller issue an indictment to put the squeeze on him.
Whether he likes it or not, Mueller is now going to have to defend his tactics during this investigation.
By throwing some shade on the Mueller investigation, Corsi will also cause considerable scrutiny against the report when it is eventually released.
To add insult to injury, in addition to the lawsuit Corsi has filed, he is also demanding the Justice Department open a criminal investigation into Mueller and his team.
On this, Corsi stated, “We’re going to say to the Office of Professional Responsibility and the Inspector General that the way these prosecutors on Mueller’s team behaved with me, and the deal they gave me, which was fraudulent, I believe demands a criminal investigation.”
This is likely not going away anytime soon for Mueller, as Corsi has some experience in spreading news such this.
As a former employee of InfoWars, he is quite familiar with how to manipulate both the media and social media to spread the word.
