Regardless, the reason why Corsi would be of interest to Mueller seems to be WikiLeaks since the special counsel has always been trying to figure out Stone's potential connection to the website. Mueller's office is trying to determine whether Stone and other associates of President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks' plans. Corsi, who was formerly the Washington bureau chief for conspiracy theory website Infowars, had said he expected to be charged with lying to federal investigators. Stone's longtime associate Jerome Corsi is reportedly negotiating a plea with Robert Mueller.

Earlier this month, Corsi said that he expected to be indicted, and according to the Associated Press, he has been cooperating with the Russian Federation probe since late August.

Stone has taken the latest statements by Corsi to question whether he could even be believed.

Stone downplayed the report in comments to the Associated Press.

Last week, when ABC News asked if he would be open to making a plea deal with the special counsel's office should they charge him in coming days, Corsi replied, "What's there to be a plea deal with?" and expressed his suspicions about the possible charges investigators may claim against him.

During the 2016 campaign, Stone publicly bragged about having "backchannel communications" with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and on several occasions appeared to predict the WikiLeaks releases that roiled the race in the final stretch of the campaign.

Corsi's reaction to the news that he was going to be indicted makes it seem a bit unsurprising that he would seal a deal with prosecutors.

Corsi's account to ABC News of his time spent with investigators also identifies WikiLeaks' release of Podesta's hacked emails as key to the special counsel's inquiry of him. He helped gather research on Democrats during the campaign, which he handed to Stone. Those people, who continue to share information in several investigations, according to the Justice Department, are former Trump campaign deputy Rick Gates, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen and lobbyist Sam Patten.
