While Mueller’s investigation seems to be reaching a conclusion based on reports and Trump’s absolute panic attacks played out on Twitter for the world to see, one expected development seems to be reaching a conclusion.

Jerome Corsi, an associate of Roger Stone who served as an informal Trump advisor who has been a long-time friend of the president, appears to be facing prison time for lying to investigators. Corsi announced this development in an interview with NBC News and says he is refusing to cooperate with the Mueller investigation in order to avoid being charged with a crime.

‘I’m not going to agree that I lied. I did not. I will not lie to save my life. I’d rather sit in prison and rot for as long as these thugs want me to.’

Corsi became a subject of the investigation due to messages he sent to Stone that announced the coming release of illegally hacked DNC emails. According to POLITICO:

‘Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi said Monday that he knew WikiLeaks had obtained a trove of emails from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta in the summer of 2016 — but insisted his awareness was simply an educated guess.

‘That knowledge — which Corsi is under scrutiny for potentially conveying to Donald Trump ally Roger Stone that summer — is now at the center of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether the Trump campaign had preemptive knowledge that Russia hacked the Clinton campaign.’

Messages between Corsi and Stone revealed that he “predicted” that “Hillary Clinton’s campaign dies this week” because he knew that the hacked emails would be released on WikiLeaks. Stone has vacillated between admitting that he was in contact with Assange during the 2016 presidential campaigns and insisting that he never did.

Stone left the campaign in 2015 but remained in contact and served as an informal advisor to Trump. While Trump insists that he fired Stone for seeking the spotlight on television, Stone says that he quit because he was forbidden to appear on TV or speak to reporters.

Corsi says now that he’s willing to go to prison for Stone, but his tune will likely change just as former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s did.
