Corsi Expects to be Charged in Probe   11/13 06:14

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- An associate of longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone said 
Monday that he expects to face charges in the special counsel's Russia 
investigation.

   Conservative conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi said on his YouTube show that 
negotiations fell apart with special counsel Robert Mueller's team and he 
expects in the coming days to be charged with making false statements.

   "I'm going to be indicted," Corsi said on his show. "That's what we were 
told. Everyone should know that, and I'm anticipating it."

   The Associated Press couldn't immediately confirm Corsi's claims that 
charges against him are forthcoming. Corsi's attorney, David Gray, declined to 
comment Monday evening. A spokesman for the special counsel's office also 
declined to comment.

   Corsi is one of several Stone associates who have been questioned by 
investigators as Mueller probes Stone's connections with WikiLeaks. American 
intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian agents were the source of 
hacked material released by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign, including 
emails belonging to former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. And 
Mueller's office is trying to determine whether Stone and other associates of 
President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks' plans.

   Corsi, the former Washington bureau chief of the conspiracy theory outlet 
InfoWars, said Monday that he had no recollection of ever meeting WikiLeaks 
founder Julian Assange.

   "To the best of my recollection, what I knew in advance about what Julian 
Assange was going to do in terms of having the Podesta emails, I figured out," 
he said.

   Corsi said Monday that he has been cooperating with the Mueller 
investigation since receiving a subpoena in late August. He said he gave 
investigators two computers, a cell phone and access to his email accounts and 
tweets.

   But he said talks with investigators recently had "blown up."

   "I fully anticipate that in the next few days, I will be indicted by 
Mueller," he said, as he made a pitch for donations to his legal defense fund.

   Stone, who has also said he expects to be indicted, has denied being a 
conduit for WikiLeaks, which published thousands of emails stolen from Podesta 
in the weeks before the election.

   In a telephone interview with the AP last month, Stone said: "I had no 
advanced notice of the source or content or the exact timing of the release of 
the WikiLeaks disclosures."
