Corsi, in the document filed in the District Court for the District of Columbia, also claims that Mueller’s office leaked confidential information surrounding Corsi’s testimony before the special counsel’s grand jury.
“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 document reads in part.
The special counsel's office declined to comment to The Hill. The lawsuit is also filed against the Department of Justice, the FBI, the NSA and the CIA.
In Sunday's lawsuit, Corsi alleges that Mueller's team took actions "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."
The document claims that the DOJ, FBI, NSA and CIA – in addition to Mueller – "have engaged in ongoing illegal, unconstitutional surveillance" on Corsi, violating his Fourth Amendment rights as well as other U.S. laws.
The document pointed to an ABC News article about the special counsel's examination of Corsi, claiming it included details that "could only possibly have come from Defendant Mueller."
Those details include that Corsi has become a "central person of interest" to the special counsel, and that Mueller had evidence suggesting that Corsi had prior knowledge of WikiLeaks' release of hacked emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.
Corsi is requesting an injunction in his case, as well as $350 million in damages.
Larry Klayman, Corsi's attorney and the founder of conservative watchdogs Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, claimed in a statement that Mueller and his team "are allegedly themselves acting in a criminal manner to further their attempted 'legal coup d'etat' to remove the president from office by any illegal means."
