According to multiple reports, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is about to hand down another indictment, and once again it doesn’t have much to do with Donald Trump. But it does relate to everyone’s favorite social media-banned, red-faced, shirtless conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, Alex Jones.
Harvard-educated bestselling author and former Infowars Washington bureau chief Jerome Corsi says he’s been having a lot of discussions with Mueller’s team over the last two months, and he fully expects to be indicted anytime now. The whole experience, he told ABC News, has been “a horror show,” a true “nightmare.”
“I don’t know what they’re going to charge me with,” Corsi told ABC in an interview Monday. “I think my only crime was that I support Donald Trump. That’s my crime, and now I’m going to go to prison for the rest of my life for cooperating with them.”
ABC notes that Corsi is one of more than a dozen individuals connected to Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Trump who Mueller’s team has been investigating concerning their role in the 2016 election, particularly in connection to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Reports indicate that Mueller suspects that Stone was in communications with Assange and gained prior knowledge about his release of the leaked Clinton campaign emails that helped undermine her ultimately failed run in the last few weeks leading up to the election.
“The witnesses, many of whom have appeared before the grand jury impaneled by Mueller’s team, have told ABC News they were asked about Stone’s dealings during the 2016 election and what if any contact he may have had with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange through an intermediary, which Stone denies,” ABC reports.
Corsi said that after 40 hours of talking with Mueller’s team, it had “all blown up,” leaving him expecting an indictment soon. The charges, he said, would be the result of a “perjury trap” set by Mueller.
The special counsel’s handling of the case, he underscored, was out of control, “an inquisition worthy of the KGB or the Gestapo.”
“I feel like I’ve been through an interrogation session in North Korea in the Korean war,” said Corsi.
Corsi began working for Infowars in 2017 as their Washington bureau chief, but has since left. Prior to his time with Jones and co., he worked for WolrdNetDaily and Human Events. After earning his PhD in political science from Harvard in 1972, Corsi eventually became a bestselling author for his books “Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry” (2004) and “The Obama Nation” (2008).
