Mueller Grand Jury Witness Cryptically Suggests He’s In Legal Jeopardy

Jerome Corsi, a journalist known for pushing the Obama “birther” conspiracy theory, suggested on Thursday that he could face prosecution in the Mueller probe.

On his daily webcast, Corsi became emotional at times as he cryptically referred to the “extreme mental pressure” he has faced since being subpoenaed by Mueller.

Corsi has appeared twice before Mueller’s grand jury.

He expressed concern about what he “foresee[s] coming down the pike.”

Journalist Jerome Corsi cryptically suggested he could be in legal jeopardy in the Mueller investigation during an at-times emotional appearance on his web show Thursday.

“Thank God I’m still with the family, right now. I plan to be the rest of my life,” Corsi said during an hour-long broadcast of his web show. “Don’t know if I can promise that given what I foresee coming down the pike.”

Corsi, a former Infowars reporter, has appeared twice before a grand jury being used in the special counsel’s investigation of possible collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI director leading the probe, appears interested in Corsi’s interactions with Roger Stone, the longtime Trump confidant who is said to be a target in the investigation.

Corsi, 72, said Thursday that he would not comment specifically on the Mueller investigation. But he made remarks throughout the show that suggested his involvement in the probe is more dire than has been reported so far.

Corsi said that he has been under “extreme mental pressure” since he first became involved in the investigation.

“I thought psychologically from time to time I was going to break,” he said.

Corsi said Mueller’s team subpoenaed him on Aug. 28 and that he’s been “constantly working with” the special counsel ever since. Corsi has met with prosecutors for numerous interviews and testified to the grand jury in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 21 and Nov. 2.

He said he will miss his show Friday because he will be with his attorneys most of the day. He also announced that he will be setting up a legal defense fund next week.

Given his reluctance to comment specifically on the Mueller investigation, it is difficult to tell why Corsi could be in legal trouble. He suggested that he could soon be in the national spotlight.

Corsi recalled the intense media scrutiny he received over his 2008 book, “Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” saying that “every channel [was] talking about me, arguing about me.”

“And that’s possibly going to start again,” continued Corsi, who pushed the “birther” conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama was born in Kenya.

Several times through the show, Corsi recited the Bible verse Jeremiah 20:11.

“But the Lord is with me as a mighty terrible one; therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail; they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper; their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten,” Corsi said.

“From what I’m foreseeing is going to be happening to me, I’m begging God to let it be passed from me,” said Corsi. “If God chooses not, I will go through it, and I will be thinking about this passage if they want to put me in solitary confinement until I go insane.”

Corsi appeared to choke up when discussing a story about a run-in he had with President Donald Trump at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in 1991. Corsi, who said he met Trump three years earlier and knew him socially, recalled how Trump paid for his $1,500 dinner bill after Corsi agreed to change tables at Trump’s request.

Corsi said that he spoke during that period with Trump’s father, Fred Trump, and said that he believed the real estate tycoon would be president someday.

“I’ve supported Donald Trump actively when he was running for president. I worked with Roger Stone to help get Donald Trump elected,” said Corsi, who added that he has not spoken at length with Trump since 2011.

Corsi later added that he had “been honored to know” both Stone and Infowars founder Alex Jones.

Corsi was first linked to the Russia investigation after Stone told the House Intelligence Committee on Sept. 26, 2017, that a conversation he had with Corsi was the inspiration for a tweet that has landed Stone in the crosshairs of investigators.

“[I]t will soon [be] the Podesta’s time in the barrel,” the Aug. 21, 2016, Stone tweet said.

Stone’s critics alleged after the Oct. 7, 2016, WikiLeaks release of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails that Stone must have had prior knowledge of the scheme.

Stone said his tweet was based on information Corsi provided him regarding the business activities of Podesta and his lobbyist brother Tony Podesta.

Corsi wrote on March 5 at Infowars that he and Stone did discuss the Podestas prior to Stone’s now-infamous tweet.

He wrote, “I will affirm again in print,” that Stone’s claim about his Aug. 21, 2016, tweet “was based not on advance knowledge of WikiLeaks posts, but on research I had been conducting into then published evidence provided in the Panama Papers of Podesta’s clandestine off-shore dealings with Russia.”

Stone claims he had a link to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, through Randy Credico, a left-wing comedian Stone has known for 20 years.

Stone has insisted that Credico provided him vague information confirming that WikiLeaks planned to release documents that would “roil” the campaign. Stone says he did not know the content, source or exact timing of the release.

The exact nature of Mueller’s interest in Corsi remains unclear, but NBC News reported on Oct. 25 that Mueller’s team had information suggesting that Corsi may have had prior knowledge that Podesta’s emails had been stolen and provided to WikiLeaks. According to the report, Mueller’s team is inquiring whether Corsi told Stone before WikiLeaks released the emails.

NBC also reported that Corsi and Stone sent messages to members of the Trump campaign in which they appeared to take credit for the release of the emails.

Stone also denied hearing from Corsi about Podesta’s emails or WikiLeaks’ plans.

“He never told me that. That’s new news. He never sent me anything of the kind,” Stone told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Tweets that Corsi sent just days before WikiLeaks released Podesta’s emails suggest that he did not have details of the contents of the leak.

“If Assange has the goods on Hillary, he ought just to drop the goods,” Corsi wrote on Oct. 2, 2016. “Otherwise, he’s going to make a fool of himself.”

Corsi sent the tweet just ahead of a press conference where Assange was to make a major announcement regarding the release of documents he had been teasing for weeks.

Assange held the press conference but did not release documents or provide details about what would be released.

“So Assange made a fool of Himself,” Corsi wrote on Oct. 4, 2016. “Had zero, or he would have released it. Will take grassroots on Internet to get truth out & beat Hillary.”

“I’m still not going to contact him. Never have and have no intention of doing so,” Corsi said during his Aug. 31 web show, the last before taking a two-month hiatus. “I could see coming down the road this Russian collusion fantasy.”

Corsi offered harsh words for Mueller and the investigation in that web show, which was aired three days after Corsi was first subpoenaed.

He accused Mueller of being part of a “criminal coup d’etat” and reacted to Stone’s claim that he could be indicted in the investigation.

“I don’t know what for,” Corsi said. “I don’t think Mueller has anything new that will prove Russian collusion. I just don’t see it.”

Trump About To Prosecute Clinton & Comey – Here’s Who SQUASHED It Last Second

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Washington Times:

President Trump reportedly told his then White House counsel this spring that he wanted the Justice Department to prosecute 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and former FBI director James Comey.

Citing “two people familiar with the conversation,” the New York Times reported Tuesday that counsel Don McGahn flatly told the president that he didn’t have the power to do that and that even the one thing that could be done — request an investigation — would risk ending his presidency.

“To underscore his point, Mr. McGahn had White House lawyers write a memo for Mr. Trump warning that if he asked law enforcement to investigate his rivals, he could face a range of consequences, including possible impeachment,” the Times wrote.

Though the Times called the reported conversation “one of the most blatant examples yet” of Mr. Trump seeing the Justice Department as a political tool, there was no evidence that Mr. Trump’s musings to Mr. McGahn went beyond that.

It is also unknown whether the president ever read Mr. McGahn’s memo, though the Times reported that “according to two people who have spoken to Mr. Trump about the issue,” he has continued to discuss the possibility of a second special prosecutor to investigate Mrs. Clinton, whom he frequently said during the campaign should be imprisoned for her email practices, and Mr. Comey, whom he fired.

Mr. McGahn left the White House earlier this fall.

Both a White House spokesman and an FBI spokeswoman declined to comment to the Times.

Big Actress Considering Giving Her Baby Away To Another Country Save It From TRUMP

Holy CRAP.

This is some PEAK Trump Derangement Syndrome, folks.

I mean… what planet do these nutjobs even LIVE ON?!

Actress Amber Tamblyn of “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” recently revealed that on the night Hillary lost, she went into a panic attack imagining she would have to give her unborn child up for adoption to Canadians or some ridiculous crap.

I’m not even exaggerating here.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the pain that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

I’m sorry… but if things REALLY were so bad, wouldn’t you go away WITH your baby? You’d really just hand your baby over to someone?

This is so freaking INSAAANE.

I mean – WTF?! Did any of you ever consider giving up your children because of Obama? No? Yeah. Didn’t think so.

The Hollywood Reporter has more on this story:

Tamblyn, the final reader of the afternoon, shared an essay about the 2016 Election Night from her upcoming release Era of Ignition. The essay recalled 2016’s presidential election night, which Tamblyn spent with Ferrera and comedian Amy Schumer in New York’s Javits Center while several months pregnant. She and her friends wore matching white pantsuits to signal their support of Clinton, “looking like the cast of some new primetime medical drama,” Tamblyn joked.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the paint that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

At a subway station the following day, Tamblyn read, she began experiencing pain and shortness of breath, which caused her collapse on the stairs. She recalled a “homeless man” saying, “Oh shit, it’s going down!” and offering to cut her umbilical cord with beard scissors if she went into labor. Ultimately, Tamblyn learned she was just having a panic attack.

“’How can I keep her safe?’” Tamblyn recalled asking her doctor on a visit about the attack.

“You can’t, but you can keep her close,” her doctor responded, before suggesting that she listen to a one-minute recording every day to remind her of the tenacity of love. Tamblyn ended her set by playing the recording for the audience: a one-minute record of her baby’s heartbeat.

The 2018 Vulture Fest in Los Angeles, which this year features speakers including the Dirty John cast, Constance Wu, Nick Kroll, Fred Armisen and others, concluded Sunday.
