A conservative author in the crosshairs of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has filed a complaint with the Justice Department, alleging prosecutors tried to coerce him to give false testimony. Unlike Cohen, Stone "will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories", he wrote, referring to the Mueller investigation.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., went further last week, "suggesting the effort to gather evidence beyond the Steele dossier might be the most problematic of all because it was created to be a political "insurance policy" against Trump winning the presidency". I am not of course ready to conclude that he has broken the law, that's for Mueller to say.
"Dr. Corsi has been threatened with immediate indictment by Mueller's prosecutorial staff unless he testifies falsely against Roger Stone and/or President Donald Trump and his presidential campaign, among other false testimony", Corsi's lawyers, Larry Klayman and David Gray, said in a complaint submitted to acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker. Stone also claimed that special counsel Robert Muller wanted him to "bear false witness against" the president. "I'd have to make things up, and I'm not going to do that". And I'm not going to do that.
He added: '"I will never testify against Trump".
Trump also took fresh aim Monday at Mueller, who is investigating possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election and whether Trump has tried to obstruct the probe.
President Trump declared his former longtime attorney Michael Cohen should serve a "full and complete sentence", after Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress over a project the Trump Organization was considering building in Moscow. In his court statement, Cohen said he had lied "out of loyalty" to Trump and his "political messaging".
Cohen had pleaded guilty in August to eight criminal counts, including campaign-finance violation and other charges and implicated the president in open court.
Trump meanwhile lashed out at Mueller, whom he again accused of forcing witnesses to make up lies damaging to him.
