Jerome Corsi expects indictment in Robert Mueller probe

President Donald Trump met again with his lawyers on Monday to go over a series of written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller's team, according to a source familiar with the session.

On Monday, far-right commentator Jerome Corsi told NBC News that Mueller's team told him he could expect to be indicted for perjury.

The questions, as ABC News has previously reported, center on alleged Russian meddling during the 2016 election cycle, which Mueller is tasked with investigating.

"I fully anticipate that the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form rather [sic] of giving false information to the special counsel ... or [however] they want to do the indictment", Corsi said on a YouTube livestream.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian agents were the source of hacked material released by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign, including emails belonging to former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. During Trump's campaign for president, Stone bragged about his communication with Assange and suggested that he knew Wikileaks had the DNC's stolen emails before they were released publicly.

Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for Trump, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump answering Mueller's questions as soon as this week.

Trump pointed to previous alleged election violations by Snipes, including destroying ballots and opening ballots illegally. It also highlights the role of voter suppression in Florida , as well as the state's closely divided nature.

"I don't recall ever meeting Julian Assange or getting information from anyone about what he had including the Podesta emails", Corsi said Monday, referring to John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman.

Arron Banks, the biggest funder of the Brexit campaign, was in contact with Russian diplomats, although Corsi said Banks' name did not come up during his interview with Mueller's investigators.

"We began a series of discussions with them that have gone on for two months", he said on YouTube.

In the same year as his book release, Corsi said the-then business mogul Donald Trump had reached out to him saying he did not believe that Obama's birth certificate which the White House had released was real and instead was a computer-generated fabrication. The president has repeatedly denied any such collusion with Moscow. The report said investigators have spent weeks interviewing many Corsi associates inquiring what they knew about his contacts with WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.

Last month, Giuliani told Reuters that Trump would be willing to answer questions in writing on whether his campaign had colluded with Moscow to influence the 2016 election, but not whether he had acted to obstruct the Russian Federation probe.

Much remains unknown about Mueller's interest in Stone.
