Conservative author Jerome Corsi on Monday blasted what he called the special counsel's "completely fraudulent" threat to charge him with providing a false statement.

Corsi said on Tucker Carlson Tonight that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team had allowed him to amend his testimony given regarding emails on his laptop.

He said that in the single count for which Mueller's team wanted him to plead guilty, they wanted to charge him with "knowingly and willfully giving false information on the original day's mistake."

"Not taking into account that they had allowed me ... to amend the testimony, which I thought was completely fraudulent," Corsi said.

Corsi filed a "criminal and ethics complaint" on Monday against the special counsel's team, which he had threatened for days.

As Fox News reported, the complaint states the existence of a "slow-motion coup" against President Trump.

Corsi added on Monday that the threat from Mueller's team was "all a strategy."

"It's a memory test," he said. "I don't get the memory test right, and suddenly I'm going to be thrown into prison for the rest of my life. It's an intimidation tactic, and I'm quite convinced it's intentional."
