Jerome Corsi, the right-wing conspiracy theorist suspected of serving as a link between WikiLeaks and Trump loyalist Roger Stone, is refusing a plea deal from special counsel Robert Mueller because he says he won’t “sign a lie.”

In interviews with several cable news outlets on Monday, Corsi said the special counsel has offered him to plead guilty to one count of perjury for allegedly lying to investigators about the extent of his conversations with Stone during the 2016 campaign.

“They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie,” Corsi told CNN.

Asked what’s next now that he has rejected a deal, Corsi replied, “I don’t know.”

A spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment. Corsi did not respond to multiple requests for comment from the Daily News.
