Trump ally Roger Stone this week posted a new video to Instagram attacking one-time associate Jerome Corsi for supposedly spilling dirt on him to special counsel Robert Mueller.
In the Instagram video, Stone claims that Corsi told at least three “stunning lies” about him to Mueller: First, that Corsi had informed Stone that former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails had been stolen; second, that Stone had advanced knowledge that the infamous “Access: Hollywood” video would drop and instructed Corsi to “do something” about it; and finally, that Stone had helped Corsi get a job at right-wing website InfoWars as part of a “hush-money” agreement to buy his silence.
“Tragically, Jerry Corsi has lied about me for Robert Mueller’s grand jury,” Stone says.
Stone’s foreknowledge about the release of Podesta’s hacked emails by WikiLeaks has become a central piece of Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump or his associates coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
In August 2016, Stone infamously wrote on Twitter that it would soon be Podesta’s time “in the barrel” — weeks before WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange revealed that he was in possession of Podesta’s emails.
Late last year, Corsi admitted that he helped Stone concoct a false story that he would subsequently use to explain how he had advanced knowledge that WikiLeaks was in possession of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s emails.

John Oliver cites Donald Trump’s final offer for Greenland: ‘$200 and I’ll throw in Don Jr.’
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's favorite highlight of the week was, of course, President Donald Trump's decision that he wanted to buy Greenland.
In his opener Sunday, the HBO host said that he wasn't all that surprised given Trump's track record.
"Of course, he f*cking did. Of course, he did. Greenland is icy, distant and autonomous is exactly Trump's type," Oliver said, showing a photo of Trump with the first lady.
Florida teacher removed after bizarre rant about students not standing for the pledge
Students were faced with a white-board rant in a classroom attacking anyone not standing up for the Pledge of Allegiance.
The moment went viral locally on Thursday after students posted Daniel Goodman‘s “inappropriate” message to students at First Coast High School in Duval County, Florida, The Atlanta Black Star reported.
“THINK: We had about a half million Americans die in our Civil War, which was largely to get rid of slavery. There are no longer separate water fountains and bathrooms in Jacksonville for ‘white’ and ‘colored,’ as Mr. Goodman remembers from the 1960?s. We had an amendment to the U.S. Constitution allowing women the right to vote. We have had a Black president. The superintendent of Duval Schools is a Black woman. Mr. Fluent, our principal, replaced a Black man. Mr. Simmons, who now is a DC PS admninistrator.”
Angry Minnesota farmer bashes ‘insulting’ Trump comments that ‘we’re great patriots’ during his trade war
President Donald Trump has insulted at least one Minnesota farmer by his claim that farmers are "great patriots" who want him to continue his trade fight against China.
"This wound is self-inflicted, by our president," said Gary Wertish, who is the Minnesota Farm Bureau president. "We definitely agreed with it in the beginning. But it doesn’t appear that there’s a plan B. Some of the callous comments come, especially from the president, you know, that farmers are 'winning,' we’re 'great patriots,' that’s very insulting. That’s coming from someone who never has faced the challenges of a family farmer. I go into the bank and tell the lender I can’t make the payment because we lost our market? The banker is going to tell me you don’t have to make your payment because you’re a patriot."
