Special counsel Robert Mueller is not used to playing defense.
But now he’s in deep trouble.
That’s because he got slapped with the one lawsuit that could seal his doom.
Investigative journalist Jerome Corsi slapped Mueller with a $350 million lawsuit over Mueller’s teams attempt to pressure him into signing a false confession stating he acted as a go-between for the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks.
Mueller wanted Corsi to plead guilty to making false statements and use the agreement to have Corsi fabricate testimony in order to frame the President.
But Corsi knew this was a lie.
So he rejected Mueller’s plea agreement.
And now he is fighting back.
Jerome Corsi’s new suit against Mueller also accuses the special prosecutor of trying to badger Corsi into giving false testimony that he served as a conduit between Wikileaks found Julian Assange and Roger Stone, a longtime adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump.
“Defendant Mueller and his prosecutorial staff have demanded that Plaintiff Corsi falsely testify that he acted as a liaison between Roger Stone and WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange concerning the public release of emails downloaded from the DNC’s servers,” the complaint says.
Corsi is demanding $100 million in actual damages and $250 million in punitive damages for injury to his reputation.
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, is just the latest maneuver in a public campaign against Mueller by Corsi and his attorneys. Last month, they gave reporters copies of draft court documents showing that Mueller wanted Corsi to plead guilty to a false statements charge.
If Mueller tried to induce Corsi to lie, how many other false statements did he encourage in other plea agreements.
