Turley: Corsi, Manafort Developments Show That Mueller 'Clearly Not Getting What He Wants'
Law Professor Jonathan Turley said recent news involving conservative author Jerome Corsi and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort show that Special Counsel Bob Mueller is "clearly not getting what he wants."
Turley, of George Washington University in Foggy Bottom, D.C., said it is "pretty rare" in law to encounter "problems with witnesses involved in plea agreements" like Manafort and onetime Trump associate George Papadopoulos.
Turley said Mueller was incensed by Papadopoulos and tried to increase his sentence, while Manafort is being accused of lying in his legal case.
He added that Corsi, a former Washington bureau chief for InfoWars, said he refused to accept a Mueller probe plea deal.
Corsi, 72, said he would rather spend much of the rest of his life in jail on felony charges than sign a false document from Mueller.
Mueller's focus on Corsi revolves around statements the political scientist made about an email conversation with former Nixon adviser and onetime Trump associate Roger J. Stone.
"Clearly, Mueller is not getting what he wants," Turley said of the ensuing legal fracas.
