Robert Mueller is desperate.
The special counsel needs to put points on the board.
And now he’s about to secure the guilty plea that could bring down Donald Trump.
The Washington Post reported that Mueller’s team was in plea negotiations with investigative journalist Jerome Corsi.
Mueller believes Corsi received inside information about the contents of emails stolen from the Democrats that WIkiLeaks released during the campaign.
The Washington Post reports:
It is not clear what information Corsi could leverage to get a deal with prosecutors. However, he told the Daily Caller last week that prosecutors are focused on whether he had developed a source with inside information about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s plans.
Corsi said he did not have a direct source to the group. Instead, he said he developed a theory that Assange had access to hacked emails belonging to Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and that WikiLeaks would release them in October 2016.
He told the Daily Caller that he shared his prediction with many people, including Stone.
If Mueller could prove that Corsi learned about Podesta’s emails from Assange or another person in contact with him, he could try to link WikiLeaks’ releases to Stone or others in Trump’s world.
Corsi repeatedly denied having any inside information about WikiLeaks plans.
He says he pieced together his theory they had John Podesta’s emails from publically available information.
But critics suspect Mueller has another motive.
Corsi published a book claiming Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
Mueller served Obama as his puppet FBI Director.
Many Americans wonder if Mueller wants to jail Corsi as payback for pushing the conspiracy theory Obama was ineligible to be President because he was born in Kenya.
