Mueller's Office Notifies FBI Of Alleged Scheme Involving Harassment Claim

A scheme to pay women to make "false claims" of sexual assault against special counsel Robert Mueller has been forwarded to the FBI for investigation, the investigator's office said on Tuesday.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after briefing members of the U.S. Senate on his investigation of potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign on Capitol Hill on June 21, 2017. He has secured six guilty pleas and a trial conviction in the 17 months he has overseen the investigation.

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

The Atlantic's Natasha Bertrand reported that journalists were informed about the apparent smear job by a woman claiming she was offered money to fabricate allegations of sexual misconduct against Mueller. To get the money, he said, she would need to sign an affidavit and promised a $10,000 bonus if she did so quickly.

The woman said in the email that the man said he worked for Jack Burkman. Parsons, he said in one tweet, "doesn't even exist". That email was reportedly among those referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Is Bar Refaeli working from the Tel Aviv office of the 11-50 person Surefire Intelligence agency which says it specializes in cyber and investigations relating to litigation and reputations so that she can help take down Robert Mueller's reputation?

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.

"I would always cooperate with law enforcement in any matter", she said.

The Gujarat government expects the statue to boost tourism, with one estimate putting the daily numbers at 15,000. More than 80 per cent of the local population are from tribal groups with special protected status.

Burkman could not be immediately reached for comment. "The allegations of paying a woman are false", he wrote on Twitter.

He also claimed that an email received by Jennifer Taub - a law professor and cable news commentator who was also offered payment for dirt on Mueller by someone with a Surefire Intelligence email address - came from a "person who doesn't exist" and had "nothing to do with us".

Taub said the email was supposedly sent by a Surefire Intelligence researcher who said his organization was investigating Mueller's past.

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".

Worse for him still, New Yorker journalist Jane Mayer then flagged that someone the firm's "managing partner" Matthew Cohen actually appeared to be a manipulated photograph of Jacob Wohl himself.

Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl, who both were hyping the allegations earlier this week, did an interview with the far-right website Gateway Pundit Wednesday in which they claimed that their "accuser", after arriving in D.C., boarded a flight to another location as she feared for her life. 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.

So Wohl and Burkman may be serving jail time.
