  • Jerome Corsi, a far-right political commentator and
    longtime associate of Roger Stone, says he will be indicted for
    perjury.
  • Corsi was served a subpoena in August by special
    counsel Robert Mueller to testify before a grand jury.
  • Mueller
    reportedly
     has evidence suggesting Corsi could have
    had prior knowledge of the Hillary Clinton campaign’s hacked
    emails, which were later delivered to and published online by
    the secrets-leaking organization WikiLeaks.

Jerome Corsi, a far-right political commentator and longtime
associate of Roger Stone, says he will be indicted for perjury as
part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“I fully anticipate that the next few days I will be indicted by
Mueller for some form rather [sic] of giving false information to
the special counsel … or [however] they want to do the
indictment,” Corsi said on a YouTube livestream. “But I’m going
to be criminally charged.”

“I think my crime, really, was that I dared to support Donald
Trump,” Corsi said. “Supporting President Trump … Now I’m going
to have to go to prison the rest of my life because I dared to
oppose the deep state.”

Corsi was served a subpoena in August by Mueller to testify
before a grand jury. Mueller was reportedly
investigating whether Corsi had prior knowledge of the Hillary
Clinton campaign’s hacked emails, which was later delivered to
and published online by secrets-leaking organization WikiLeaks;
and whether he passed those emails to Stone.

Stone, a GOP strategist and former adviser to Donald Trump, was
under scrutiny by the special counsel for his connection with
Julian Assange, WikiLeaks’ founder, and Guccifer 2.0, an online
identity believed to be part of the Russia’s military
intelligence arm.

The US intelligence community broadly believes the hacked emails
were a Russia-sponsored effort to influence the 2016 US
presidential elections.

Federal prosecutors indicted
12 Russian military officers
for the hack in July, and
provided evidence that connected WikiLeaks’ ties to Guccifer 2.0.

Corsi, formerly the Washington bureau chief of conspiracy theory
website InfoWars, suggested Mueller had material evidence for his
case.

“When they have your emails and phone records … they’re very
good at the perjury trap,” Corsi said to NBC producer Anna
Schecter.
