Key Mueller witness: I lied and I'm ready to die in jail
In a blockbuster interview, key Mueller witness and Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi admits to MSNBC’s Ari Melber that he lied to Congress, that he tried to get stolen Clinton emails back to the Trump campaign in 2016, that he “absolutely” intended to help the Trump campaign by doing so, that he told Roger Stone about John Podesta’s emails and that his lawyers are still communicating with Trump’s legal team “as if” there is a joint legal defense. Ari Melber also presses Corsi on being a leader of the “birther movement” which Ari describes as a “total and complete lie” and asks him whether he is auditioning for a Trump pardon by bringing the subject of pardons up during the interview.

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens says Kavanaugh's performance during hearings was disqualifying
While once supportive of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, John Paul Stevens is no longer a fan.
The retired Supreme Court justice said on Thursday that he thought Kavanaugh “had the qualifications,” but has changed his mind, The Palm Beach Post reported. Stevens, speaking at a small event in Florida, said that Kavanaugh’s conduct during his Senate Judiciary Committee hearings was disqualifying.
Stevens was a Supreme Court justice between 1975 and 2010, the third-longest time on the bench in history. Despite being a lifelong Republican, Stevens has sometimes agreed with more liberal-minded justices. Shortly after the February shooting in Parkland, Florida, Stevens penned an op-ed arguing for the repeal of the Second Amendment.
Stevens on Thursday noted that his change of heart wasn’t based on political preference; Palm Beach Post reporter Lulu Ramadan says he even praised Kavanaugh’s judicial record in a book he once wrote. But “his performance in the hearings changed my mind,” he said. Kavanaugh told th
