Apparently Jerome Corsi is trying to top his previous swiftboat and birther conspiracies, because his offering today to the CT gods is a real gem. He’s filed a criminal complaint wherein he characterizes himself as a “recognized and distinguished investigative journalist,” indicting Robert Mueller and members of his team, who “counseled and attemted [sic] to coerce Dr. Corsi to commit a felony, all in their zeal to get Dr. Corsi to lie to presumably obtain indictments for other subjects and targets, including but not limited to the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.” It reads like parody but the complaint is in fact on the Scribd site:
Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and his prosecutorial staff, particularly Rhee, Goldstein, Zelinsky, and Atkinson, have threatened a witness and tampered with a witness, Dr. Corsi, to criminally coerce him into providing false testimony and in fact also withholding or suppressing truthful testimony. Those prosecutors hired and operating under the direction of Special Counsel Robert Mueller want Dr. Corsi to falsely testify that he and Roger Stone acted as go-betweens (alone or through additional links and contacts) between the 2015-2016 presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump and the Russian government through Wikileaks founder and leader Julian Assange. Faced with what was deceptively proposed by the Special Counsel to appear like an easy, sweetheart plea deal, Dr. Corsi has refused because such testimony would be a lie. Dr. Corsi has been accused of telling a lie when he is telling the truth. Under threat of indictment and eventual conviction which could effectively result in life imprisonment as Dr. Corsi is now 72 years old, Dr. Corsi has been criminally threatened and coerced to tell a lie and call it the truth. Dr. Corsi refuses to lie. He has stated publicly that he will not one day stand before God having lied; nor will he participate in a slow-motion coup against the president that would be to the detriment of his nation and the next generations by lying. And if he avoids a charge of lying by lying, he could never be confident that his constitutional and other legal rights will again be compromised, as apparently has already occurred with other subjects and targets of Special Counsel Mueller’s run-a-way and politically motived [sic] investigation.
Although an act of supreme irony, the Special Counsel and his prosecutorial staff have attempted to and conspired to violate 18 U.S.C. § 1001 [lying to federal agents] while threatening Dr. Corsi with indictment and prosecution for violating the same statute. Knowing the testimony they wanted Dr. Corsi to give to be actually false – including having been repeatedly told by Dr. Corsi that the assertions are false – the Special Counsel’s office nevertheless insisted upon using the false testimony they wanted to get from Dr. Corsi in court proceedings and indictments against other persons.
Mueller and his team are also accused of “rampantly engaging in news leaks” and conflicts of interest.
Special Counsel Mueller knowingly hired an attorney who had previously – within the preceding year from her hiring – represented the Clinton Foundation of whom Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton are principals. See Exhibit D. Having previously represented the Clinton Foundation, its Board of Directors and principals Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, and Former Counselor of the U.S. Department of State Cheryl Mills, Ms. Rhee ethically cannot investigate, work on, or prosecute possible collusion by Russia with Trump’s presidential campaign running against Hillary Clinton. Mr. Mueller’s hiring of Ms. Rhee and others is in itself an ethical violation of DOJ standards and professional rules. With Mr. Mueller’s array of experience, he obviously knows that the lawyers he is hiring are legally and ethically compromised and prevented from following the evidence wherever it leads. One must infer that Mr. Mueller intends a hatchet job on President Trump in retaliation for his friend, Mr. Comey, and his firing from head of the FBI.
Here’s the final paragraph.
In addition, Special Counsel Mueller and his prosecutorial staff should respectfully be removed from his office and their practice of the law and a new Special Counsel appointed who respects and will obey common and accepted norms of professional ethics and the law and who will promptly conclude the so-called Russian collusion investigation which had been illegally and criminally spinning out of control, furthered by complicit incompetent and unethical “oversight” under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose conflicts of interest and actions also need to be investigated and remedied.
Couple this with the fact that George Conway, husband of Kellyanne, said that Trump tweeting praise for Roger Stone’s “guts” is witness tampering.
File under “18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512” https://t.co/e4ZGVn1kJi

Conway’s writing partner and Supreme Court lawyer, Neal Katyal, agrees.
George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering. DOJ (at least with a nonfake AG) prosecutes cases like these all the time. The fact it's done out in the open is no defense. Trump is genuinely melting down, and no good lawyer can represent him under these circs https://t.co/zqFUoQvWTf

For those of you worried that Trump’s actions would lead to a constitutional crisis, worry no more. We’re there. This is going to get very ugly.
