NBC: business partner of Trump’s ex-adviser filed a lawsuit against Mueller

According to the channel, Jerome Corsi accuses the special Prosecutor that he blackmailed him, forcing him to lie during the investigation of Russia’s alleged interference in the US election of 2016.

Former chief of the Washington Bureau of the InfoWars site Jerome Corsi, who is a business partner of Roger Stone-adviser of Donald Trump during the election race in 2016 – filed a lawsuit against special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. This was announced on Monday by NBC.

According to the channel, 72-year-old Corsi accuses Mueller that he blackmailed him, forcing him to lie during the investigation attributed to Russia’s interference in the US elections in 2016. The lawsuit States that he was threatened with imprisonment if he did not agree to give false testimony about his mediation between Roger stone and the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange.

It is noted that Corsi demands compensation for the damage caused to him in the amount of $ 350 million. He also accused the Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI), the Central intelligence Agency (CIA) and the national security Agency (NSA) of illegal surveillance on “the instructions of Mueller and his staff.” The suit was filed in Washington district court.

Earlier it was reported that the staff of the office of Muller received at its disposal correspondence, from which it follows that Corsi could know that the letters of John Podesta, who headed the headquarters of Hillary Clinton, were stolen by hackers and transferred to the WikiLeaks organization for subsequent publication even before the information about it was made public. Mueller is investigating how this could have happened, not excluding that Corsi can personally share his information with Stone. Corsi denies he ever met with Assange or receive information about the data. In early December, he filed a complaint against Mueller with the U.S. Department of justice with similar charges.

The Us intelligence agencies accuse Russia of interfering in the electoral process of the United States in 2016. Special Prosecutor Muller has been investigating these alleged attempts at influence for more than a year. Trump and his assistants have repeatedly rejected suspicions of any illegal contacts with Russian officials during the election campaign. Moscow has also repeatedly denied allegations of attempts to influence the US election.
