Special counsel Robert Mueller chalked up another big court win in his rigged witch hunt.
Now he can unleash his attack dogs against another Trump supporter.
And that’s why Donald Trump is fuming.
Conservative author and investigative journalist Jerome Corsi filed suit against Robert Mueller after the special counsel tried to strong arm him into giving false testimony against the President.
Mueller tried to pressure Corsi into signing a plea agreement where he’d confess to making false statements and admit to being the conduit between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks.
But Corsi rejected the deal.
Corsi said he was never in contact with WikiLeaks and that his communications with Roger Stone about WikiLeaks releasing two rounds of Clinton emails – one in September and one in October – were based on him putting the pieces together from Julian Assange’s previous public statements and WikiLeaks’ July disclosure of emails obtained from the Democrat National Committee.
Several defendants have already folded in the face of Mueller’s “false charges” gambit.
The special counsel would find a minor inconsistency in a Trump aide’s testimony and then threaten them with years of jail time unless they flipped on the President.
That was how federal prosecutors got Michael Cohen to confess to the fabricated crime of illegal hush money payments.
But Corsi didn’t succumb to Mueller’s pressure tactics.
The conservative journalist – whom liberals hate because he was one of the chief promoters of the theory that Barack Obama was born in Kenya – filed a lawsuit against Mueller for illegal surveillance.
Corsi and his attorney – conservative activist Larry Klayman – argued that the case should be heard by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon who had ruled in Klayman’s favor five years ago in a case involving Barack Obama’s illegal warrantless domestic spying program.
Klayman argued that since Corsi’s current case involved illegal warrantless spying that was relatable to that earlier case, Leon could rule in Klayman’s favor again.
But Judge Leon rejected this argument.
Leon accused Klayman of ‘judge shopping’ and dismissed the motion.
After the decision, Klayman told reporters Corsi intended to press on with his case.
“We’re not down and we’re not out,” Klayman declared. “We’ll just simply get another judge. That’s all. Apparently, he didn’t want the case, because this is a tough case. The government was scared of this judge.”
Corsi’s lawsuit is important because it will put Mueller’s conduct on trial.
So far, Mueller operated in secret and only spoke through court filings where Trump associates pled guilty to making false statements or with fake indictments of Russians who will never stand trial in America.
Corsi suing Mueller gives Corsi the chance for discovery and the ability to shine a light on how Mueller went about his business.
Mueller is desperate to keep his below-the-belt tactics under wraps.
If the American people got a good look into how he really conducted his investigation into Donald Trump, they would demand the President shut down his witch hunt immediately.
