Mueller wants details on Farage

MSNBC analyst Mimi Rocah, who served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of NY, joined MSNBC's Chris Hayes on Tuesday to discuss the latest developments in the special counsel's investigations into a conspiracy with Russian Federation by Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Mueller was reportedly investigating whether Corsi had prior knowledge of the Hillary Clinton campaign's hacked emails, which was later delivered to and published online by secrets-leaking organization WikiLeaks; and whether he passed those emails to Stone.

Law Professor Jonathan Turley said Tuesday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that if Special Counsel Robert Mueller's most powerful charges are for false statements and focus on Trump-supporting figures, it would be like "shooting the wounded".

On Monday, Corsi - a former Infowars editor, said in a livestreamed video that he expects to be charged with perjury despite spending 40 hours in discussions with prosecutors, and that the talks had "all blown up", according to Politico.

Roger Stone, legendary Republican political operative and close ally of President Donald Trump.

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.

Asked if the questions on Farage related to Trump's 2016 election campaign or that year's referendum on the United Kingdom leaving the EU, Corsi said on November 12: "Predominantly US politics, but of course Brexit was in the background". He said he handed over two computers and gave Mueller prosecutors access to his cellphone, email and Twitter accounts.

Trump's attorneys have repeatedly resisted answering questions about whether the president had obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. He was also asked if he had ever visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at London's Ecuadorian embassy.

"I don't know what they're going to charge me with", Corsi told ABC in an interview Monday.

Mueller's investigators had been interested in people closely associated with the Brexit campaign before.

Corsi said he was questioned in Washington two weeks ago.

"It's like at the end of two months my mind was mush", he said.

"My attorney's have fully reviewed all my written communications with Dr. Corsi", his statement said in part. "To the best of my recollection, I never had anyone connect me to Julian Assange", he said.

The almost year and a half long probe by the special counsel stems from allegations of Russian Federation coordinating with members of the Trump presidential campaign.
