Stone has accused Corsi of working with Mueller to take him down.
Right-wing author and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi sued his former associate Roger Stone for defamation on Thursday.
The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Corsi who is seeking $25 million in damages, alleges Stone lied as both men tried to distance themselves from allegations they had prior knowledge of WikiLeaks email dumps that were damaging to Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.
Notably, the lawsuit by Corsi, 72, claims Stone's "intentional infliction of emotional distress and coercion and threats are intended to try even cause Plaintiff Corsi to have heart attacks and strokes, in order that Plaintiff will be unable to testify at Stone’s criminal trial."
Corsi also claimed Stone's conduct caused him "conscious pain, suffering, severe emotional distress and the fear of imminent serious bodily injury or death, and other mental and physical injuries, and Plaintiff was severely harmed and damaged thereby."
