Vermont Law School Professor Blows Whistle on Scheme Targeting Mueller

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.

Mueller is a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director tasked past year with investigating allegations that members of Trump's campaign team colluded with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election in his favor.

The email sender claimed to have been offered thousands of dollars to sign documents alleging misconduct against Mueller and alleged that the man who made the offer said he was working for Burkman.

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 United States presidential election.

The Gateway Pundit ran with a purported investigative report from SureFire Intelligence claiming to have vetted a woman who was assaulted by Mueller on August 2, 2010. The email came from a recently established company allegedly linked to Jack Burkman, a lawyer and right-wing lobbyist, who has said he will hold a press conference today with a woman claiming to have been harassed by Mr Mueller in 2010.

He seems to have meant Jack Burkman, a champion of the Seth Rich conspiracy theory, who was later implicated in the scheme with Wohl.

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 USA attorney and prosecutor.

Burkman also reportedly was attacked by a man he hired to conduct that investigation, as The Washington Post reported.

Carr confirmed that a woman who had worked decades ago with Mueller at a law firm says she was contacted by a man who wanted her to make the claim. The emails stated that Parsons was offered $20,000 plus payment of her credit card debt to accuse Mueller of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment when she was a paralegal at his law firm in 1974.

Either way, it appears that this failed attempt to leverage Israel's cyber reputation and Bar Refaeli's photo - even for fake "Talia" is more likely to bring Wohl himself down than it will have any effect on the Mueller probe.

At least two conservative media personalities appeared linked to an apparent hoax that may have been created to ensnare Washington reporters, if not also cause political damage to Mueller.

The smear campaign appeared to emanate from a company called Surefire Intelligence, which seems to be connected to former teenage hedge fund manager and pro-Trump cheerleader, Jacob Wohl, NBC reported.

"I think I'm the victim of a hoax", Burkman said. "The law firm she named, Pillsbury, says no Lorraine worked in its S.F. office with Mueller in the 1970's", Mayer wrote on Twitter. She says she received that email October 22.

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.
