Woman allegedly offered to make false claims about Mueller

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

The alleged scheme aimed at Mueller, who has been investigating unproven ties between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation, came to the attention of his office after several journalists and news outlets, including RT, were contacted by a woman claiming that she had been approached by a man offering money if she would fabricate claims against him. After investigating, according to the political website Hill Reporter, the reporters each independently determined the allegations of misconduct and harassment were likely a hoax and that it was unclear if the woman had been offered money to make the claim. The special counsel's office did not go into detail about the allegations or who is behind them.

The spokesman, Peter Carr, issued a statement saying that "when we learned last week of allegations that women were offered money to make false claims about the special counsel, we immediately referred the matter to the FBI for investigation".

Burkman posted on Twitter that he would reveal a sexual assault victim of Mueller's on Thursday.

Burkman is a Washington lawyer and Republican operative. While Burkman was pushing false allegations about the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich, he promised a press conference with a man whom he said had damning information about the murder, but the man did not show up in person. In the video, Burkman said the "first" alleged accuser is "coming out this Thursday at high noon". 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. "So if the goal here was to get Robert Mueller fired, to prevent him from completing his work, then certainly that could be an accusation of obstruction of justice". The case has since been referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation - and Wohl stopped responding to media inquiries after reporters found that the number for an intelligence company associated with the fake allegations redirected to... his mom's voicemail.

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

The chancellor threw her weight behind her friend in Hesse and visited him four times on the campaign trail in recent weeks. The clear victor of Sunday's state polls is the Green Party , in another repeat of the recent Bavarian election .

Reuters was unable to connect with anyone at phone numbers listed on Surefire Intelligence's website.

Burkman toldThe Atlantic he does not know the woman who contacted journalists about the alleged scheme against Mueller, and called his client a "very credible witness." . In an email, the company offered her compensation for her time to give anything she may have had on Mueller. The firm was namechecked in threatening calls received by journalist who were sniffing around the alleged payoff scheme, though until now Wohl was denying any involvement in the firm.

Taub told the Atlantic the email came from an address linked to a company called Surefire Intelligence, which appears to be a fake company created by Twitter personality Jacob Wohl.

The article included partly redacted documents that appeared to be from a mysterious firm known as "Surefire Intelligence".
