Trump pal to talk to Mueller?

- CORSI Mueller probe

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A conservati­ve writer and associate of Trump confidant Roger Stone said he’s in plea talks with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

Jerome Corsi told The Associated Press Saturday he has been negotiatin­g a potential plea but declined to comment further.

He said on a YouTube show earlier this month that he expected to be charged with lying to federal investigat­ors, though he said at the time that he was innocent of wrongdoing.

Mueller’s team questioned Corsi as part of an investigat­ion into Stone’s connection­s with WikiLeaks.

U.S. intelligen­ce agencies have assessed that Russia was the source of hacked material released by WikiLeaks during the 2016 election that damaged Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
