Corsi, who is connected with political operative Roger Stone, had said that he was being improperly pressured by Mueller's team to strike a plea deal, Fox News reported.

'I'd have to make things up, and I'm not going to do that, ' Stone added.

President Donald Trump tweeted praise of his longtime adviser Roger Stone on Monday, after Stone had declared that he would never testify against the president.

Last week Michael Cohen, the president's former longtime personal attorney, confessed to lying to Congress about Trump's business dealings with Russian Federation as part of a plea agreement with Mueller.

Michael Cohen, once President Trump's longtime attorney and confidant, is now a target of of the president's Twitter feed after he requested leniency in the courts on Friday for cooperating with the special counsel.

Cohen's lawyers said he had fully cooperated with Mueller's investigation and would continue to do so, and deserved to avoid imprisonment. "Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'", the president tweeted.

Stone also denied having had any contact during the 2016 presidential campaign with Julian Assange, the creator of WikiLeaks, the site that published hacked messages from Trump's Democratic opponents in an apparent bid to influence the election.

Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist who fashioned himself as Infowars' man in Washington, is a Stone associate whom the special counsel has investigated.

It was revealed last week that Trump spoke more extensively during the presidential election with Cohen about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow than Cohen admitted to Congress past year, which Cohen said while pleading guilty Thursday in federal court to a charge from Mueller's office.

President Trump's son, Eric Trump, took to Twitter late Monday to call out White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband George Conway- a fierce critic of President Trump-who earlier suggested that a tweet from the president was tantamount to witnesses tampering.

18 U.S.C. § 1512 is, plain and simple, witness tampering.
