Vermont professor helps unravel alleged scheme to smear Mueller

FBI Investigating Claim GOP Operative Offered Woman $20K to Falsely Accuse Mueller of Sexual Assault: Report

The office of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has asked the FBI to investigate what appears to be an effort to smear him, stemming from suspicious emails offering women money in exchange for fabricating sexual misconduct claims against him.

The White House pushed back on a report that claimed special counsel Robert Mueller is in the process of trying to subpoena President Donald Trump for the Russian Federation investigation.

This latest - albeit not entirely surprising - twist in the weird effort to make the allegations against Mueller comes after mysterious claims that there was a payoff scheme to bring forward accusers, as well as the revelation that Wohl - a failed-hedge-fund-manager-turned-pro-Trump-Twitter-personality - had set up a fake private intel firm linked to the effort. The reporters each independently verified that the harassment allegations were most likely a hoax and referred them to the special counsel's office.

Robert Mueller's office has referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation allegations that women were "offered money to make false claims" about the special counsel, according to Mueller's spokesman.

He told Reuters he has spoken to five women who claim they were sexually assaulted by Mueller, and denied paying them for the information.

But he said last week on Facebook and in tweets that he would "reveal the first of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's sex assault victims".

Burkman, who previously promoted conspiracy theories involving the 2016 death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, says he and his staff are now vetting additional accusations against Mueller.

President Trump's lawyers have not yet reached a deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team to submit written answers to questions on Russian meddling and possible collusion; reaction and analysis from Alex Little, former assistant US attorney and prosecutor.

But she's not the only woman who's come forward: Jennifer Taub, a professor at Vermont Law School, received an email from a man using a Surefire Intelligence email address around the same time, on October 22. Parsons said she had worked for Mueller as a paralegal at a MA law firm in 1974. This salacious rumor was short-lived: Within hours, numerous journalists were able to connect a false sexual-misconduct tip they'd received about Mueller to Wohl and his associates.

The plan unravelled across United States media on Tuesday, one day after Jacob Wohl, a 20-year-old conservative blogger, tweeted on Monday night that a "scandalous" story about Mr Mueller was about to break.

Mueller's office confirmed the smear attempt after being tipped off about a scheme where a woman says she was offered more than $20,000 to bring the false claims. He was always "polite and never inappropriate", Parsons told the Atlantic by email.

A phone number on the Surefire Intelligence website was allegedly the number of Wohl's mother, an aspect that Kimmel enjoyed very much.

"I gave Burkman a call.

This isn't something I take any delight in", said Burkman.

Wohl told Gateway Pundit that he first heard the purported accuser's story when Surefire Intelligence was hired by the accuser to track "down some assets that were misappropriated by her accountant".
