Scheme revealed to make 'false claims' of sexual assault against Robert Mueller

Special counsel asks FBI to investigate scheme to bring abuse allegations against Mueller

Special counsel asks FBI to investigate scheme to bring abuse allegations against Mueller

Robert Mueller's office says somebody is offering women money to make false allegations of sexual harassment against him, and it's asking the FBI to investigate.

The FBI declined to comment and referred reporters back to the statement the Office of the Special Counsel.

Burkman claimed on Tuesday on Twitter that he's holding an event at which Mueller's first supposed "victim" will come forward.

A US official familiar with the matter confirmed to the New York Daily News that the special counsel's office was alerted to the purported scheme by reporters who had inquired about receiving emails from a Florida woman who alleged that right-wing conspiracy theorist Jack Burkman had offered her more than $20,000 to accuse Mueller of sexual misconduct. She reportedly contacted several reporters over the past few weeks, representing that she had worked with Mueller at a law firm in the 1970s.

Frick asked Taub for her "beginning rate" to talk about any encounters with Mueller and offered to pay her "for any references that you may have". Its domain records list an email for a Trump conspiracy theorist named Jacob Wohl, who began promising to reveal a "scandalous" Mueller story on Tuesday.

Mueller's office has charged 32 people so far, with four former associates of the president pleading guilty and agreeing to cooperate with investigators. Many Trump allies have sought to publicly discredit Mueller and the president himself has repeatedly decried the investigation as a "witch hunt".

This is a developing story and will be updated. The case has since been referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation - and Wohl stopped responding to media inquiries after reporters found that the number for an intelligence company associated with the fake allegations redirected to... his mom's voicemail.

On Tuesday information came to light about what appears to be a plot to try and smear special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

According to The Atlantic, another woman, Lorraine Parsons, was offered $20,000 to make accusations against Mueller. The firm was namechecked in threatening calls received by journalist who were sniffing around the alleged payoff scheme, though until now Wohl was denying any involvement in the firm.

Wohl is now claiming his role as "founder" of Surefire Intelligence, which had become the subject of mockery after journalists discovered that the LinkedIn profiles of a number of individuals claiming to be firm employees had profile photos poached from models, actors and stock photo images.

Burkman has a long history of promoting conspiracy theories, like claiming government agents killed Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

Bar Refaeli is not working for Surefire Intelligence.

"Mueller is a bad guy, not just because of what he does in the courtroom, but because of what he does outside of the courtroom", Burkman said.
