Trump Unloads on Mueller and his “Best Friend” James Comey, Slams “Conflicts”

President Trump blasted special Counsel Robert Mueller and his “best friend” “leakin’, lyin'” James Comey today in early morning tweets.

“Robert Mueller and Leakin’ Lyin’ James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest. And bye[sic] the way, wasn’t the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of ‘legal’ at the corrupt Clinton Foundation? A total Witch Hunt,” he wrote.

The woman prosecuting Corsi that the president referenced is likely Jeannie Rhee, a member of Robert Mueller’s team who also represented the Clinton Foundation in a 2015 lawsuit and Clinton herself in a lawsuit seeking access to her private email. Rhee also donated thousands of dollars to Clinton’s political action committee in 2015 and 2016.

The president also excoriated Mueller’s “pit bull” attorney Andrew Weissmann, saying he “wrongly destroyed peoples lives.”

“Will Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report. Will Andrew Weissman’s [sic] horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report,” he continued. “He wrongly destroyed people’s lives, took down great companies, only to be overturned, 9-0, in the United States Supreme Court. Doing same thing to people now.”

The president was referring to the case against Enron’s accounting firm, Arthur Andersen, which Weissmann prosecuted.

According to the Washington Times, defense attorneys in the case said Weissmann bent or broke rules, pointing to appeals court decisions, exhibits and witness statements as proof.

“They say he intimidated witnesses by threatening indictments, created crimes that did not exist and, in one case, withheld evidence that could have aided the accused. At one hearing, an incredulous district court judge looked down at an Enron defendant and told him he was pleading guilty to a wire fraud crime that did not exist,” writes the Times.

Eventually, as the president points out, the Supreme Court overturned the convictions in the Andersen case 9-0.

The president also blasted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr (who was a key player in the dossier scandal) and his wife Nellie (not Molly) who worked for the Fusion GPS, the research firm which created the salacious and unverified anti-Trump dossier.

“Will all of the substantial & many contributions made by the 17 Angry Democrats to the Campaign of Crooked Hillary be listed in top of Report. Will the people that worked for the Clinton Foundation be listed at the top of the Report? Will the scathing document written about Lyin’ James Comey, by the man in charge of the case, Rod Rosenstein (who also signed the FISA Warrant), be a big part of the Report? Isn’t Rod therefore totally conflicted?”

“Will all of the lying and leaking by the people doing the Report, & also Bruce Ohr (and his lovely wife Molly), Comey, Brennan, Clapper, & all of the many fired people of the FBI, be listed in the Report? Will the corruption within the DNC & Clinton Campaign be exposed?..And so much more!” he wrote.

Jerome Corsi Files Criminal Complaint Against Mueller, Says he was Pressured to Lie

Former Infowars editor and author Jerome Corsi filed a complaint against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Monday, accusing the prosecutors of threatening and coercing him to lie in his testimony.

The complaint states, “Dr. Corsi has been criminally threatened and coerced to tell a lie and call it the truth.”

Fox News reports that the 78-page document was sent to top law enforcement officials including Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

Corsi claims that the special counsel team wanted him to lie and say he acted as a liason between political consultant Roger Stone, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and the Trump campaign regarding the release of hacked emails from the DNC.

Fox News reports:

The complaint states that Mueller’s office is now “knowingly and deceitfully threatening to charge Dr. Corsi with an alleged false statement,” unless he gives them “false testimony” against Trump and others.

The purported threat of a false statement charge, according to the complaint, pertains to a July 2016 email from Stone asking him to “get to” Assange and get the pending emails.

Corsi’s complaint says he was unable to initially give “accurate” testimony on that point, until he could reload emails on his laptop. The complaint says he later amended his answers. In an interview last week with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Corsi said Mueller’s team “was happy” with his answers until he couldn’t “give them what they wanted.”

Corsi recently revealed that he was expecting to be indicted by Robert Mueller.

“I fully anticipate that in the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form or other of giving false information to the special counsel or to one of the other grand jury — or however they want to do the indictment,” he said during a live stream.  But I’m going to be criminally charged.”

Corsi claims he received a subpoena from two FBI agents in August and has since handed over two computers and access to his email and Twitter accounts.

He says he was interrogated by investigators and “quizzed” about various specific topics for months.

“Criminals are running the Department of Justice. My crime was that I dared to support Donald Trump,” Corsi said. “And that supporting President Trump, and since 2004 having written 20 books — I guess those were my crimes. I guess I’m going to prison for the rest of my life because I dared to oppose the deep state.”

 

Trump Goes off on Mueller in Early Morning Tweets

President Trump took to Twitter this morning to blast Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “conflicted prosecutor who has gone rogue,” claiming the investigators are “ruining” people’s lives because they “refuse to lie.”

The President blasted Mueller for his one-sided approach to justice, writing, “The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other.”

Trump also took aim at the mainstream media, writing “The Fake News media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint, when in actuality he is the exact opposite.”

The tweets come on the heels of the news that the Special Counsel has accused former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort of lying to the FBI and the news that former Infowars editor and Roger Stone associate, Jerome Corsi will reject a plea deal offered to him by Mueller’s office.

The Mueller probe is expected to be winding down, and President Trump submitted his written answers to the special counsel’s questions last week.

 

Mueller: Manafort Lied to FBI and Special Counsel; Breached Plea Agreement

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, breaching his plea agreement, according to a new court filing yesterday.

The filing says, “After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement.”

Manafort’s team disputes the allegations, telling a judge that their client “believes he has provided truthful information and does not agree with the government’s characterization or that he has breached the agreement.”

In September, Manafort pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.

LISTEN: The Scandal You’re Not Hearing About

Manafort agreed to forfeit five properties including his Trump Tower apartment, three bank accounts, and a life insurance policy.

Also on Monday, former Infowars editor and author Jerome Corsi said he will reject a plea deal that has been offered to him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie,” Corsi said in a phone call with CNN.

According to The Atlantic staff writer, Natasha Bertrand, Corsi told her he would not accept Mueller’s plea deal on one count of perjury because it would require him to sign a statement saying he willfully lied, which he denies.

 

Breaking: Jerome Corsi to Reject Mueller Plea Deal

Former Infowars editor and author Jerome Corsi has told CNN he will reject a plea deal that has been offered to him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie,” Corsi said in a phone call with CNN.

When asked what would happen now that he is refusing the plea deal, Corsi responded: “I don’t know.”

According to The Atlantic staff writer, Natasha Bertrand, Corsi told her he would not accept Mueller’s plea deal on one count of perjury because it would require him to sign a statement saying he willfully lied, which he denies.

Mueller’s team questioned Corsi as part of their investigation into political advisor Roger Stone’s Wikileaks connections. The Special Counsel is trying to determine whether or not Stone had prior knowledge of the Wikileaks release of Clinton campaign documents in 2016–an allegation Stone denies.

Corsi announced November 13 that he was expecting to be indicted by Mueller. In a live stream, he said, “I fully anticipate that in the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form or other of giving false information to the special counsel or to one of the other grand jury — or however they want to do the indictment. But I’m going to be criminally charged.”

Corsi claimed he received a subpoena from two FBI agents in August and has since handed over two computers and access to his email and Twitter accounts.

He said that he was interrogated by investigators and “quizzed” about various specific topics for months.

 

Jerome Corsi in Plea Negotiations with Robert Mueller

Jerome Corsi, former Infowars editor, author, and associate of political consultant Roger Stone told AP today that he is negotiating a potential plea deal with Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel team, but would not comment any further.

Mueller’s team questioned Corsi as part of their investigation into Stone’s Wikileaks connections. The Special Counsel is trying to determine whether or not Stone had prior knowledge of the Wikileaks release of Clinton campaign documents in 2016–an allegation Stone denies.

Last week, Corsi revealed that he was expecting to be indicted by Robert Mueller.

“I fully anticipate that in the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form or other of giving false information to the special counsel or to one of the other grand jury — or however they want to do the indictment,” he said during a live stream.  But I’m going to be criminally charged.”

Corsi claims he received a subpoena from two FBI agents in August and has since handed over two computers and access to his email and Twitter accounts.

He says he was interrogated by investigators and “quizzed” about various specific topics for months.

“Criminals are running the Department of Justice. My crime was that I dared to support Donald Trump,” Corsi said. “And that supporting President Trump, and since 2004 having written 20 books — I guess those were my crimes. I guess I’m going to prison for the rest of my life because I dared to oppose the deep state.”

Trump: Mueller Team Threatening People to “Come up with the Answers They Want”

President Donald Trump didn’t mince words today, as he took to Twitter to blast the Special Counsel, calling the inner workings of the investigation “a total mess.”

He called Mueller’s team of investigators a “disgrace to our Nation,” and said they were “shouting at people” and “horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want.”

The President’s comments come on the heels of a couple of reports on the latest possible indictments in the Mueller investigation:

  • On Monday, Infowars editor and author, Jerome Corsi, said he believes he will be indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a “perjury trap” soon.

“I got served a subpoena on August 28th, at my home, two FBI agents showed up unannounced, and       I did not talk to the FBI, of course, my wife was pretty startled,” he said on the video.”

“We began a series of discussions with them that have gone on for two months,” he explained. “At the       end of that two months, even though I did everything I could to cooperate, the entire negotiations,           discussions, have just blown up.”

  • Mueller investigators told the Wall Street Journal that the Special Counsel is also investigating whether or not political consultant Roger Stone tried to “intimidate and discredit a witness who is contradicting (his) version of events about his contacts with WikiLeaks.
