  • Jerome Corsi associate of Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone in Kenya in 2008

Jerome Corsi, the right-wing conspiracy theorist suspected of serving as a link between WikiLeaks and Trump confidant Roger Stone, is refusing a plea deal from special counsel Robert Mueller because he says he won't "sign a lie".

Relying on a copy of the proposed plea agreement itself, ABC reports that Corsi was offered a deal in which he would have agreed to "knowingly [making] materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements" to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents regarding an "associate's request to get in touch with an organization that he understood to be in possession of stolen emails and other documents pertaining to the 2016 USA presidential election". 60,000-word book that Corsi has apparently written about his time in the investigation called "Silent No More: How I Became a Political Prisoner of Mueller's 'Witch Hunt'".

"I didn't go in to deceive them". "I couldn't remember any of my 2016 emails", Corsi said.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, declined to comment.

Corsi did not respond to repeated requests for comment from the New York Daily News.

Corsi injected himself into Stone's situation a year ago when he claimed that one of his own articles for InfoWars inspired Stone to predict in October 2016 that there would be trouble coming for Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Corsi insisted he had no contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and that "investigators were so mad because I didn't give them what they wanted". Corsi confirmed the offer Monday morning, telling NBC's Anna Schecter, "They want me to say I willfully lied".

Stone added: "It is inconceivable that in America someone would be prosecuted for refusing to swear to a false narrative pushed on him by the Mueller investigators".

The U.S. intelligence community has unanimously concluded that the hacked Clinton emails were provided to WikiLeaks by Russian operatives as part of the Kremlin's Trump-boosting interference in the 2016 election.

Stone, for his part, denies having had any such conversations about Podesta with Corsi. "I won't plead guilty to it".

Another former prosecutor told the Atlantic that Corsi is likely on the wrong end of an upcoming indictment.

Over the course of his 18-month long probe, Mueller and his team of prosecutors have indicted 32 individuals and three Russian businesses on charges ranging from computer hacking to conspiracy and financial crimes.

Also Monday, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos reported to a federal prison in Wisconsin to begin serving his 14-day sentence for lying to the FBI about his pre-2016 election contacts with a Kremlin-connected professor named Joseph Mifsud who had promised "dirt" on Clinton. "If Jerry ever deduced that Mr. Podesta's emails had been purloined and would be published by WikiLeaks, he did not share that conclusion with me". I did not. I will not lie to save my life.
