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.

Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan to give up royal titles — ‘the hardest #Megxit possible’
Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will give up their royal titles and public funding as part of a settlement with the Queen to start a new life away from the British monarchy.
The historic announcement from Buckingham Palace on Saturday follows more than a week of intense private talks aimed at managing the fallout of the globetrotting couple's shock resignation from front-line royal duties.
It means Queen Elizabeth II's grandson Harry and his American TV actress wife Meghan will stop using the titles "royal highness" -- the same fate that befell his late mother Princess Diana after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996.
GOP senator tells home-state press that impeachment trial must be ‘viewed as fair’: report
Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) spoke to local reporters on Saturday about her role in the upcoming Donald Trump impeachment trial.
Murkowski explained she would likely vote with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on an initial vote on whether to allow witnesses. However, she left the door open to voting for witnesses after House impeachment managers make their opening case.
"I don't know what more we need until I have been given the base case," she said. "We will have that opportunity to say 'yes' or 'no' ... and if we say 'yes,' the floor is open."

White House press secretary urged to do her job: ‘We don’t pay you to be a Twitter troll’
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was blasted on Saturday over the confusion resulting from her refusal to hold daily press briefings.
CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was alarmed that Grisham's assistant, Hogan Gidley, was forcing reporters to refer to his remarks as coming from a "sources close to the President's legal team."
Darcy noted that Trump had repeatedly questioned the veracity of unnamed sources, making it problematic for Gidley to demand to be quoted as such.
Grisham responded to the criticism and asked Darcy to "stop with the righteous indignation.
