President Trump's legal team is finalizing answers to written questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and could submit them as soon as the end of this week, two sources familiar with the matter told Fox News on Tuesday.
Corsi, a close associate of Republican strategist and Trump ally Roger Stone, told The Guardian that Mueller's team also asked for information about the American academic Ted Malloch, who is based in the United Kingdom and is friends with Farage. They are probing whether Stone had advance access to emails hacked from the Democratic Party and the account of John Podesta, campaign chairman of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and obtained by Wikileaks. Another topic that will be covered is a meeting between the president's son Donald Trump Jr., other members of Trump's campaign team and a group of Russians in June 2016 in Trump Tower, the source said. Corsi's attorney, David Gray, declined to comment Monday evening.
Right-wing author and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi told viewers of his YouTube live-stream broadcast Monday that he'd been cooperating with the inquiry since receiving a subpoena from Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at his home in August.
Corsi, who wrote the anti-President Obama book "The Obama Nation", said he is being targeted for political reasons.
Corsi said Monday that he has attempted to cooperate with Mueller's team, but that "the entire negotiations and discussions have just blown up".
Splintered migrant caravan groups arrive at US border
President Donald Trump has ordered the deployment of over 5,000 military troops to the border to help fend off the migrants. Other migrants, however, were still stranded in the west-central state of Jalisco because they couldn't get rides.
Stone, a GOP strategist and former adviser to Donald Trump, was under scrutiny by the special counsel for his connection with Julian Assange, WikiLeaks' founder, and Guccifer 2.0, an online avatar believed to be part of the Russia's military intelligence arm.
"I still feel like I have nothing to hide, but you can't talk to them for two months without some confusion", he said on the livestream.
Stone denies that he ever told Trump about WikiLeaks' dumps before they became public.
Corsi said Mueller's prosecutors have pressed him repeatedly on any ties to Assange, whom he says he has never met.
Over the weekend, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said that if Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker does not recuse himself from oversight of Mueller's Russian Federation probe, then Democrats will seek to tie protections for the investigation into the spending bill. Corsi later claimed to be the inspiration behind Stone's tweets that suggested Podesta's brewing troubles.
