Robert Mueller is hoping to take down President Trump.
But he hasn’t made much progress.
And a new criminal complaint may stop him before he can get any closer.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been running for nearly two years.
There is little to show for it.
And there is even less to show for any sort of collusion between President Trump and Russia.
But the left is still hoping that Mueller will release some sort of bombshell that can finally take down the president for them.
Because in the end, that’s why Mueller is still where he is.
Nobody in their right mind would think he is doing a good job unless their entire agenda is based on an anti-Trump pipe dream.
So to make it seem as though he is doing something, Mueller is targeting associates and even just supporters of the president.
An unlikely figure who is now central to Mueller’s investigation is Jerome Corsi.
Corsi is a pro-Trump political commentator, who is most known for his time working for Infowars.
He is an associate of Roger Stone, who is a close confidant to President Trump.
Trump even sent his praise to Stone just days ago on his official Twitter account.
Mueller believes that Corsi is connected to WikiLeaks’ email leaks that were negative to Hillary Clinton in the final months of the 2016 election.
He believes that Corsi has a direct line to WikiLeaks, and made use of it to pass information to Stone, who in turn sent it to then-candidate Trump and his campaign.
But there are a lot of holes in that claim.
For Stone, he has text messages showing that he didn’t have any knowledge of WikiLeaks or a direct connection to them.
The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, backs up Stone’s claim.
And for Corsi, he has tweets clearing the idea of any advanced knowledge of WikiLeaks releases.
Prior to an October 2016 WikiLeaks press conference, he tweeted:
“If Assange has the goods on Hillary, he ought just to drop the goods.”
And two days after the conference he tweeted:
“So Assange made a fool of Himself . . . Had zero, or he would have released it. Will take grassroots on Internet to get truth out & beat Hillary.”
These tweets seem relevant to the investigation but are not included by Mueller’s team.
Despite this, Mueller is going after Corsi, indicting him for perjury.
Mueller claims that Corsi lied during his testimony about efforts to try to find out about WikiLeaks plans.
Corsi denies this allegation but is being forced to either admit he lied, or face a harsh sentence.
That’s why Corsi is filing a criminal complaint against Mueller.
In his complaint, he claims that “The special counsel and his prosecutorial staff threatened to indict Dr. Corsi, who is now 72 years old, and effectively put him in jail for the rest of his life, unless Dr. Corsi would provide the false testimony that they demanded, even after being informed that the testimony desired would be false.”
This complaint is going to be fought hard by the Special Counsel because if it is pursued it has the chance to expose the entire investigation.
Mueller is running a witch hunt and using shady tactics to take down anybody put in his crosshairs.
Corsi is likely to be next if he doesn’t fight back.
