Trump lawyers could submit answers to Mueller in coming days, source says

Long-time conspiracy theorist and recent Robert Mueller investigation participant Jerome Corsi said that he expects to be indicted this week by the special counsel, potentially "for some form or other of lying".

Mueller's team is reportedly interested in Corsi's communications with GOP provocateur Roger Stone during the 2016 election regarding any advance knowledge of Wikileaks releasing emails stolen from the Clinton campaign, as well as any potential coordination of the release with the Russian government.

Negotiations were ongoing between Mr. Corsi's legal team and federal prosecutors for the past two months, but those talks recently broke down he said.

Mueller's investigation appears to be now focused on whether Trump's allies had ties to Wikileaks, the organization responsible for publicly releasing thousands of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by Russian hackers.

Corsi worked as the Washington, D.C., bureau chief of InfoWars until this year.

Corsi has been linked to Roger Stone, a Trump confidant who has been a focus of the Mueller probe for months.

Giuliani and fellow Trump attorney Jay Sekulow did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.

Corsi said Monday that he has been co-operating with the Mueller investigation since receiving a subpoena in late August.

He said he had cooperated fully with the investigation, handing over his computers, phone and Apple Time Machine, and helping investigators download all his emails, Tweets and browsing history.

"And so it may be that he's still working on building - you know, assuming anyone's going to be indicted, but it seems that the signs point that way - that he's working on indicting a group of people together for similar conduct", she suggested.

"I think my crime, really, was that I dared to support Donald Trump", Corsi said.

Stone, a GOP strategist and former adviser to Donald Trump, was under scrutiny by the special counsel for his connection with Julian Assange, WikiLeaks' founder, and Guccifer 2.0, an online avatar believed to be part of the Russia's military intelligence arm.

Trump's attorneys have repeatedly resisted answering questions about whether the president had obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. "I'm going to be criminally charged".

He said: "The issue they went to over and over and over again was: who was my source with Assange?" "To the best of my recollection, I never had anyone connect me to Julian Assange", he said.

The answers concern questions about whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
