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.
