MUELLER'S MISSION: Jerome Corsi Files 'CRIMINAL COMPLAINT' Against Mueller for Seeking 'False Testimony'

"Conservative author Jerome Corsi on Monday filed a "criminal and ethics complaint" against Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, accusing investigators of trying to bully him into giving "false testimony" against President Trump", writes Fox News.

The president said: "You mean he can do all of the bad, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term?"

Cohen admitted last week to having lied to Congress during testimony when he said that Mr Trump had no business or financial ties to Russian Federation during the Republican primaries in 2016, even though he kept Mr Trump and his family updated on ongoing negotiations for a Trump Tower Moscow project through June 2016. Cohen's statements marked the first time the president was implicated in a federal crime since Mueller's probe began.

"Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time", Trump complained on Twitter.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", Trump added. He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get. Before taking off for the G-20 in Buenos Aires, the president stopped on the White House South lawn to sound off on Cohen as "weak" and a liar. When Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations over the summer, he also claimed he went about those actions at the urging of Mr. Trump.

Trump meanwhile lashed out at Mueller, whom he again accused of forcing witnesses to make up lies damaging to him.

Corsi, who is connected with political operative Roger Stone, has claimed for the past week that he was being improperly pressured by Mueller's team to strike a plea deal which he now says he won't sign.

According to Corsi's complaint, they wanted him to demonstrate that he acted as a liaison between Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on one side and the Trump campaign on the other, regarding the release of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee.

"Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'" Trump wrote.
