"This, this news about Corsi provides the opportunity, potentially - and we don't know what Mueller is investigating or what he has - but this provides the opportunity to see a line from Russian Federation, who stole the emails, to WikiLeaks, who distributed the emails, WikiLeaks to Corsi and Stone, and Stone to the president".

Earlier this month Corsi said publicly that he expected to be charged with lying to federal investigators even though he was innocent of wrongdoing.

Jerome Corsi, conspiracy theorist and ally of Roger Stone, is reportedly in plea negotiations with the special counsel's office.

Although he cooperated with the special counsel investigation for around two months and provided lots of information, including access to his email accounts and tweets, talks had recently "blown up", he said in a recent video.

Jerome Corsi told The Associated Press he has been negotiating a potential plea but declined to comment further. Corsi said he had been contacted by the special counsel about possible charges, and the special counsel and Corsi's attorney had been in ongoing discussions.

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

Stone denies that he ever told Trump about WikiLeaks' dumps before they became public.

Journalists both on the left and on the right have wondered if Mueller's treatment of Corsi was setting up a chilling precedent for going after journalists to reveal their sources.

Corsi did research on Democrats during the 2016 election and provided it to Stone, who served as an informal adviser to Trump's campaign at the time. Those people, who continue to share information in several investigations, according to the Justice Department, are former Trump campaign deputy Rick Gates, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen and lobbyist Sam Patten.

In response to the claim from Stone that Corsi is only being "pressured" to say harmful things about him, Deutch said he wasn't surprised Stone would say that.
