Vermont Law School professor asked to smear Mueller

Robert Mueller

A spokesman for Robert Mueller said Tuesday (Wednesday NZ time) that the special counsel's office has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to examine claims that women were offered money to say Mueller behaved inappropriately toward them decades ago.

Mueller is investigating allegations that President Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to meddle in the 2016 election.

Multiple U.S. news outlets are reporting that the alleged plot came to light when journalists were emailed on October 17 by a woman who says she was asked to make false claims against Mueller.

"We immediately referred the matter to the FBI for investigation", Carr said, calling the claims against Mueller "false". The special counsel's office did not go into detail about the allegations or who is behind them.

The FBI has been asked to investigate whether women were offered money to make sexual assault claims against Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Within minutes of Carr's statement, Burkman posted a video on Facebook revealing he plans to host a news conference in Arlington, Va., on Thursday focused on "the first of the sex assault victims of Robert Mueller".

Burkman gained notoriety when he promoted conspiracy theories regarding the still-unsolved killing in 2016 of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

The plot appeared to be the latest, and one of the more freaky, in a string of attempts by supporters of President Donald Trump to discredit Mueller's investigation as a hoax and a witch hunt.




Longtime LGBTQ Nation readers will remember Jack Burkman from his 2014 claim that he was working on legislation to ban gay men from the NFL.

However, Burkman told Fox News he is representing a woman who allegedly met Mueller in New York City in August 2010.

And the entire company appears to have been created around three weeks ago with the sole aim of giving the accusations against Mueller an (incredibly thin) veneer of credibility. "It's my understanding that you may have had some past encounters with Robert Mueller", he told Taub, according to the email she forwarded to me on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Bertrand, the special counsel's office became aware of the offer after "several journalists" were contacted by a woman claiming she was offered $20,000 "to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller".

"I gave Burkman a call".

Wohl's has denied any involvement, but media reports indicate that his email address and his mother's telephone number are connected to Surefire's website.

Ms Taub said she found the email, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, to be "creepy" and forwarded it to Mr Mueller's office.

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".
