Conservative author Jerome Corsi is aiming to take Robert Mueller to court, claiming the special counsel's investigators tried to coerce him into giving “false testimony” against President Trump. The complaint is addressed to law enforcement leaders like Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, D.C.’s U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu and the Bar Disciplinary Counsel. Corsi wants the Department of Justice to open criminal and ethics probes into Mueller and his staff.
"Special Counsel Mueller and his prosecutorial staff should respectfully be removed from his office and their practice of the law and a new Special Counsel appointed who respects and will obey common and accepted norms of professional ethics and the law and who will promptly conclude the so-called Russian collusion investigation which had been illegally and criminally spinning out of control,” the complaint reads.
The "false testimony" Mueller's team supposedly wanted Corsi to give concerned his relationship with Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone and WikiLeaks.
According to Corsi’s complaint, they wanted him to demonstrate that he acted as a liaison between Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on one side and the Trump campaign on the other, regarding the release of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee.
The complaint states that Mueller’s office is now “knowingly and deceitfully threatening to charge Dr. Corsi with an alleged false statement,” unless he gives them “false testimony” against Trump and others.
The purported threat of a false statement charge, according to the complaint, pertains to a July 2016 email from Stone asking him to “get to” Assange and get the pending emails. (Fox News)
Corsi is taking a stand against Mueller's "rogue government tyranny," his attorney, Larry Klayman, said in a statement.
Corsi also said the Mueller team pressured him to sign a plea deal, but he's not interested.
The most recent development in the Mueller investigation came last week when former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pled guilty to lying to authorities about his contact with Russia and a Trump Tower construction project in Moscow. He agreed to cooperate with Mueller - a decision that did not sit well with President Trump.
“Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time.” You mean he can do all of the TERRIBLE, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term? He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2018
