Conservative author and political firebrand Jerome Corsi is still fighting back against Bob Mueller and his team of investigators. First, he refused to flip and then he threatened to file criminal and ethical charges against Mueller.
He is a bit of a rascal so many thought this was for show and that he wouldn’t actually file the complaint, but he just did the unthinkable and filed a complaint with the DOJ.
From Breitbart: Filed by Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman, the complaint asks the Justice Department to launch a criminal and ethics investigation into the tactics of Mueller and investigators under him.
The complaint states: “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.”
Corsi announced last Monday he would not agree to a plea agreement with Mueller, pleading guilty to one count of perjury.
“They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie,” he told CNN.
From Fox News: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.
Corsi’s complaint says he was unable to initially give “accurate” testimony on that point, until he could reload emails on his laptop. The complaint says he later amended his answers. In an interview last week with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Corsi said Mueller’s team “was happy” with his answers until he couldn’t “give them what they wanted.”
In the complaint on Monday, Corsi’s lawyers denied that Corsi had inside knowledge and was colluding with Assange. Instead, they make the argument Corsi “logically concluded” more emails would be released.
“Employing his professional skills and considerable experience as an analyst and investigative journalist, Dr. Corsi logically concluded that WikiLeaks would release Podesta’s emails soon in a second round ‘data dump’ from the same group of DNC emails stolen on July 5, 2016,” the complaint reads.
