Conservative author Jerome Corsi filed a lawsuit against Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Sunday, saying Mueller's office conducted illegal surveillance of him, The Hill reported.
The lawsuit, which seeks $350 million in damages and an injunction in his case, also alleges illegal leaking of information on him to the media, including that he had information on WikiLeaks' hacked emails from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
"Defendant Mueller and his prosecutorial and media staff, acting in their official capacity and personally, also illegally released grand jury information to harm Plaintiff Corsi by attempting to destroy his reputation and personal and professional well-being and livelihood, thus also attempting to drive him into bankruptcy," the lawsuit reportedly reads, and that Mueller's team "intended to coerce, extort, threaten and/or blackmail him into submission and designed to remove the current president of the United States for political and other improper purposes."
Corsi has said in multiple media interviews in recent days that Mueller tried to get him to lie in order to receive a plea deal, and that he refused to do so.
