Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist with connections to former Trump advisor Roger Stone, has been subpoenaed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify in front of a grand jury this Friday. The New York Times reports that Corsi will testify about discussions with Stone, who has been a subject of Mueller’s scrutiny after he seemingly predicted that WikiLeaks would release material about 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. “He fully intends to comply with the subpoena,” Corsi’s lawyer David Gray said. He added that Mueller’s subpoena did not specifically name Stone, but he and Corsi speculate that “it has to do with his communications” with the former Trump confidant. Corsi is notorious for previously working with Alex Jones on his InfoWars operation that was recently banned from multiple social-media platforms over its promotion of hate speech.
Randy Credico, a former associate of Stone’s, is also expected to testify on Friday. Stone has maintained that he had no contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and claims he learned about what WikiLeaks was doing through “public sources” and through Credico. Emails from John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, were hacked and published on the website during the election. Mueller's office indicted Russians who worked with WikiLeaks to “spread information stolen from Democrats” in July.
