President Donald Trump is expected to provide written answers to questions from the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 us presidential election as soon as this week, a person familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.
Right-wing author and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi told viewers of his YouTube live-stream broadcast Monday that he'd been cooperating with the inquiry since receiving a subpoena from Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at his home in August.
Earlier on Monday, Corsi announced that he expected to be charged soon with lying to Mueller's investigators after 40 hours of questions, which took place during six sessions.
He said he had turned over two computers and a cellphone to investigators and given them full access to his tweets. Peter Carr, a spokesman for the Special Counsel's Office, declined to comment.
"I still feel like I have nothing to hide, but you can't talk to them for two months without some confusion", he said on the livestream.
"When they have your emails and phone records. they're very good at the perjury trap", Corsi said to NBC producer Anna Schecter. He said his "mind was mush" after speaking with investigators for so long.

An associate of Stone said Monday that he expects to face charges in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation.

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. Best of my recollection, what I knew in advance about what Julian Assange was going to do in terms of the Podesta emails, I figured out.
Additionally, Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and three other people for conspiring to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Stone's finances, political contacts and relationship with Mr. Assange. Mr.
According to the Guardian, Corsi conceded on November 13 that he had sent emails to associates boasting of inside information from WikiLeaks about the plan to publish the emails but insisted that he was merely trying to boost his reputation and in fact only knew information that was already public.
