The Associated Press reports:
A conservative writer and associate of Trump confidant Roger Stone said Friday that he is in plea talks with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Jerome Corsi told The Associated Press he has been negotiating a potential plea but declined to comment further. Stone, who also has said he is prepared to be indicted, said earlier this month that he “had no advanced notice of the source or content or the exact timing of the release of the WikiLeaks disclosures.”
He told AP in a separate statement Friday, “It is clear from his recent videos and his recent interviews that my friend Dr. Corsi has been under a tremendous amount of pressure and it is beginning to affect him profoundly. He has stated publicly that he is being asked over and over to say things he simply does not believe occurred.”
If Jerome Corsi pleas and agrees to cooperate, this could be a big deal. We are talking about straight up collusion by launching stolen DNC and Hillary emails by Russia to influence a presidential election. Who else in the @realDonaldTrump campaign knew about this? https://t.co/yDysBnTqnP

Corsi looking to plead, likely cooperate. Bad news for Stone (and Trump “no collusion” crowd). I’ve signed up tough cooperators but Corsi is an outright conspiracy theorist. Meaning: Mueller likely wouldn’t sign up Corsi as cooperator unless he had hard proof backing him up.
