An associate of Roger Stone, who is a longtime confidant of President Donald Trump, came forward Monday with insider information on special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
Conservative commentator Jerome Corsi said he expects to face charges in the special counsel’s Russia investigation in the next few days.

On his YouTube show, Corsi revealed that negotiations fell apart with Mueller’s team and he expects in the coming days to be charged in the probe — and indicated, based on his recent experience with Mueller’s grand jury, that the probe would come to an end soon
“I don’t know what they’re going to charge me with,” Corsi told ABC News. “I think my only crime was that I support Donald Trump. That’s my crime, and now I’m going to go to prison for the rest of my life for cooperating with them.”
The investigation is “an inquisition worthy of the KGB or the Gestapo,” Corsi said. “I feel like I’ve been through an interrogation session in North Korea in the Korean war.”
“My crime is that I didn’t tell them what they wanted to hear. They won’t believe it, but this is the most frightening experience of my lifetime. I’m being punished for trying to cooperate with them in a game that I was set to lose,” ABC News reports Corsi later said. “I couldn’t win this game … I was trying to tell them the truth. But you forget that somebody was in a meeting and you lied to them.”

“I’m going to be indicted,” Corsi later said on his show. “That’s what we were told. Everyone should know that, and I’m anticipating it.”
Corsi is one of several Stone associates who have been questioned by investigators as Mueller probes Stone’s connections with WikiLeaks. American 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.
Mueller’s office is trying to determine whether Stone and other associates of Trump had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans. Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations, and has called the probe a politically motivated “witch hunt” designed to undermine his presidency.
Corsi, the former Washington bureau chief of the far-right conspiracy theory outlet InfoWars, said Monday that he had no recollection of ever meeting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

“To the best of my recollection, what I knew in advance about what Julian Assange was going to do in terms of having the Podesta emails, I figured out,” he said.
Corsi said Monday that he has been cooperating with the Mueller investigation since receiving a subpoena in late August. He said he gave investigators two computers, a cell phone and access to his email accounts and tweets.
But he said talks with investigators recently had “blown up.”
“I fully anticipate that in the next few days, I will be indicted by Mueller,” he said, as he made a pitch for donations to his legal defense fund.

Stone, who has also said he expects to be indicted, has denied being a conduit for WikiLeaks, which published thousands of emails stolen from Podesta in the weeks before the election.
In a telephone interview with the AP last month, Stone said: “I had no advanced notice of the source or content or the exact timing of the release of the WikiLeaks disclosures.”
