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

A spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller said Tuesday that the matter of the alleged payoffs for "false" allegations was referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The special counsel's office did not go into detail about the allegations or who is behind them.

Burkman, who peddles conspiracy theories on his radio program, has posted Facebook videos accusing Mueller of being an alcoholic and sexual abuser.

The allegations were first revealed when a woman emailed several journalists earlier this month, saying she had been contacted by a man who offered her around US$20,000 to "make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller", according to the Atlantic and the Hill Reporter.

But the law firm she mentioned told U.S. media outlets they have no record of anyone under her name ever working there.

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".

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel's office, confirmed that the matter has been referred to the bureau.

Mr Mueller was tasked previous year with investigating allegations that members of US President Donald Trump's team colluded with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election in his favour. He is also looking into whether Trump attempted to obstruct the probe.

This is a developing story and will be updated.


Burkman says he'll appear this Thursday in a press conference with a woman with a credible accusation against Mueller.

The Mueller inquiry has yet to produce its final report.

Around the same time, Jack Burkman, a Republican lobbyist and media personality, began talking about the allegations.

Burkman gained notoriety when he promoted conspiracy theories regarding the still-unsolved killing in 2016 of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich. Burkman is holding a press conference tomorrow at a Holiday Inn Rosslyn in Alexandria, Virginia.

They also got a threatening phone call from someone who said he worked at "Surefire Intelligence", a firm that NBC News reports is connected with disgraced hedge fund manager and Gateway Pundit writer Jacob Wohl. He did not respond when asked by NBC why a telephone number listed on Surefire's website referred callers to another number that's listed in public records as belonging to Wohl's mother.

According to the Atlantic, the woman told reporters that Burkman "offered to pay off all of my credit card debt, plus bring me a check for $20,000 if I would do one thing".

Surefire Intelligence was incorporated in DE less than three weeks ago, according to online records, and describes itself as "a private intel agency that designs and executes bespoke solutions for businesses and individuals who face complex business and litigation challenges".

"In addition to any civil liability that they might have for a defamation claim, I think that you could make an argument that this is an effort to obstruct justice", said Barbara McQuade, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of MI.
