Long-time conspiracy theorist and recent Robert Mueller investigation participant Jerome Corsi said that he expects to be indicted this week by the special counsel, potentially "for some form or other of lying". "As of today, right now, I expect to be indicted".
Corsi has been involved in Mueller's investigation for roughly two months and had already been subpoenaed for documents and testimony before the grand jury, and he complied with both.
He said he had turned over two computers and a cellphone to investigators and given them full access to his tweets. Mueller's spokesman, Peter Carr, declined to comment.
British investigators have revealed that they suspect that Banks did not invest his own money into the Leave campaign, and many analysts say they suspect the money was funneled into the campaign by Russians connected to Banks and Mellon.
"The issue they went to over and over and over again was: who was my source with Assange?" he said.
"When they have your emails and phone records. they're very good at the perjury trap", Corsi said to NBC producer Anna Schecter. "At the end of the two months, my mind was mush". "I think that my crime really is that I dared to support Donald Trump, President Trump".

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell about 200 points with shares in tech companies bearing the brunt of the early damage. Elsewhere, oil prices fell more than 2 percent Tuesday, with Brent crude slipping below the $70-per-barrel mark and U.S.
Corsi said the possible charges arose related to Roger Stone, a friend and longtime Republican operative who was a Trump campaign adviser, and his ties to Russian Federation and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Asked if the questions about Farage are related to the 2016 US elections or that year's referendum on the United Kingdom leaving the EU, Corsi said: "Predominantly US politics, but of course Brexit was in the background". "To the best of my recollection, I never had anyone connect me to Julian Assange", he said. But Corsi has emerged as a central figure of interest to Mueller as he builds his case, sources confirm to ABC News.
Since Mueller took over the investigation in May 2017, his team has charged four Americans once affiliated with Trump's campaign or administration, 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and three other people.
Turley said that Stone is at worst an "annoying character" and that prosecuting him would be like "shooting a mime in Central Park" and not taking down a major political titan. Corsi denied having prior knowledge of the emails. He announced that he has set up a Paypal to help him defray legal expenses, and said he expects to lose his home. Mr. Corsi said at his age of 72, he could die in prison.
