Conservative author Jerome Corsi -accused of lying under oath by the special counsel’s office- sued Robert Mueller’s team Monday; asking for $350 million in damages after claiming Mueller committed “various constitutional violations” during his investigation into Russia-Trump collusion.
“Politico reported that the newly filed suit claims that Mueller tried to get Corsi to give testimony that Corsi said is false. He is reportedly seeking $100 million in actual damages and $250 million in damages due to injury to his reputation. The CIA, FBI, and the National Security Agency were also named in the suit,” reports Fox News.
