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.Godspeed, Jerry -RW
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.
