The Hill reports:
Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi said Wednesday that he won’t be pursuing a pardon from President Trump after rejecting a plea deal offer from the special counsel that would have allowed him to avoid prison.
“My decision to reject the special counsel offer was not made anticipating a pardon, I have no reason to believe or anticipate that President Trump would pardon me,” Corsi said.
“And even if the president promised that he would not pardon me, I would still make the same decision, because I’m not going to violate my integrity in order to stay out of jail,” he continued.
But he’ll surely take one if it comes.
