Jerome Corsi, a friend of longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone, knew ahead of time that Wikileaks would release thousands of illegally hacked Hillary Clinton campaign emails during the 2016 presidential election campaign, and Russia investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller has evidence to prove it, according to a new NBC News report.

If indeed Mueller can demonstrate that Corsi — a former Washington D.C. “bureau chief” for the far-right conspiracy site InfoWars, according to The Hill — knew about the emails stolen by Russian hackers before they became public, that would put evidence of collusion with Russia in the election just two steps removed from Trump himself.

Corsi, now 72, is a prominent author of conspiracy-theory books that often target top Democratic politicians. In 2004, he had a Number One bestseller, according to The Washington Post, with his book Unfit for Command, which sparked the “Swift Boat” attacks on Democratic 2004 presidential candidate John Kerry, claiming that Kerry had lied about events during his military service in Vietnam.

In 2011, as CNN noted, Corsi published Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President, establishing the “birther” conspiracy theory — the bogus claim Obama was not born a United States citizen — that first established Trump as a national political figure.
