Right-wing conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi claimed his family had been placed under surveillance as part of the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election.
Corsi accused the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller of harassment Wednesday during an interview with Fox Business, after filing a lawsuit earlier this month alleging "illegal" conduct by the special counsel, reported the Washington Examiner.
"Right now I've got evidence that the FBI and Mueller's team are now harassing my family," Corsi told "Trish Regan Primetime." "They are doing door knocks on my stepson, they are parking surveillance vans with two agents in it outside the places where various members of my family work."
Corsi did not explain why federal agents might be interested in his family's activities.
"My children have done nothing wrong," Corsi said. "My wife, I've been married to her for 27 years, and now they're going to try to make them criminals? I mean this is harassing my family, it's beyond bounds, and I won't stand for it."
Corsi said he was offered a plea deal, which he claims to have rejected, as Mueller investigates him as a potential link between WikiLeaks and President Donald Trump's campaign.
