(TeaParty.org) – Journalist Jerome Corsi may find himself in the unique position of being able to legally end what attorney Larry Klayman is calling special counsel Robert Mueller’s “reign of terror” based on a lawsuit set to be filed this week.
Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is representing Corsi and explained in a WND column Friday that he will be filing a complaint on Corsi’s behalf with acting Attorney General Mathew Whittaker along with the heads of the Office of Professional Responsibility and Inspector General of the Justice Department.
As you’ve likely heard from giddy leftists this week, the special counsel is currently examining the idea that Corsi and Trump operative Roger Stone may have had access to Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails via a WikiLeaks source and subsequently informed then-candidate Trump of their upcoming release to the general public.
Corsi, who has rejected a plea deal, has been firm in stating that the special counsel pressured him to falsely claim to have lied about his relationship with WikiLeaks to investigators.
He maintains both that he never had direct contact with notorious WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and that, when originally confronted by investigators, simply did not remember the email prosecutors have now spotlighted.
According to the Daily Caller, Corsi has accused special counsel prosecutors of failing to provide exculpatory evidence to a federal grand jury that supported his claim to have had no knowledge of the WikiLeaks drop.
Klayman explains that the lawsuit he plans to file alleges obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and witness intimidation on the part of special counsel and his prosecutors.
It will “ask for Mueller’s removal and professional discipline and much more by way of criminal prosecution for him and his prosecutorial staff accomplices,” he says.
“In rejecting the felonious plea proposal of special counsel Mueller and his prosecutorial staff just last week, which required my client to lie under oath, Dr. Corsi invoked his godly belief that he was doing the right thing, not just for himself but the nation,” Klayman writes.
He adds that it was “puzzling” to him “why Trump’s lawyers have not gone on the counteroffensive by bringing suit for the illegal surveillance against the president, his staff and his family.”
Corsi, a former reporter for Infowars and WND, recently told The Hill that he considers Mueller to be “a political hack and a criminal.”
“We’re going to say to the Office of Professional Responsibility and the inspector general that the way these prosecutors on Mueller’s team behaved with me, and the deal they gave me, which was fraudulent, I believe demands a criminal investigation,” he said.
