As­so­ciate of Roger Stone in plea talks with Mueller

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

A con­ser­va­tive writer and as­so­ciate of Trump con­fi­dant Roger Stone said Fri­day that he is in plea talks with spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller’s team.

Jerome Corsi told The As­so­ci­ated Press he has been ne­go­ti­at­ing a po­ten­tial plea but de­clined to com­ment fur­ther. He said on a YouTube show 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.
