Special Counsel for the Russia investigation Robert Mueller could be on his way to yet another guilty plea. He’s already garnered admissions of guilt from four former Trump associates, and now, Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi is up. He’d previously said he expected to be indicted for providing false information to prosecutors working on the Russia investigation, and now The Washington Post reports that he’s negotiating a path forward with the special counsel’s office.

His guilty plea would sit alongside others from former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, former Trump advisers Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Roger Stone, meanwhile, has previously stated that he’s prepared to be indicted as part of the Mueller probe, but he suggested the charges would be part of a political hit job and didn’t admit to any wrongdoing.

Investigators have sought to determine the truth in the efforts Stone undertook to paint himself as an intermediary between Wikileaks — and its Russian backers — and the Trump campaign. Late into the 2016 election season, Stone got in contact with Trump campaign chairman Steve Bannon himself to discuss Wikileaks, which presented vast amounts of stolen emails from Democrats.

Other aspects of the Mueller investigation that have arisen lately include answers from the president for the special counsel that he recently submitted. Negotiations had been ongoing surrounding questioning the president for months, and Trump sitting down in person with Mueller’s team had been on the table at one point, but the president chickened out.

Questions he did answer reportedly focused on the question of his and his campaign’s own ties to Russia and did not cover obstruction of justice, a concurrent issue that has arisen.
