Jerome Corsi, a journalist who used to work for Infowars, has issued a cryptic suggestion that he could be in some legal jeopardy via the Mueller investigation during a recent cast of his web-based show.
“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.”
via Daily Caller: 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.
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.”
