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

Mueller

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into claims that women were offered money to fabricate sexual assault allegations against Mueller, who leads the probe into Russia's attempts to influence the USA election in 2016.

Further, when NBC news tried to call the website's officially-registered number, it led them to the voicemail inbox of the 20-year-old's mother.

At the same time, reporters came forward about a weird email a number of outlets, including TPM, received from someone who had claimed to have worked with Mueller in the 1970s and who said she was offered thousands of dollars to make allegations against him.

"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", spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement to the media Tuesday.

It's unclear whether the woman's story is entirely factual.

The woman's identity is now unknown but she recently contacted a number of journalists with allegations that she had been offered $20,000 (€17,632) to provide false testimony as a way to discredit Mueller.

The Atlantic followed up on Stedman's reporting later Tuesday, detailing another instance in which someone who worked for Surefire Intelligence, named Simon Frick, contacted the Vermont Law School professor Jennifer Taub and asked her how much money she would want in exchange for discussing her "past encounters" with Mueller.

According to documents published by the conservative Gateway Pundit blog, the accuser says that Mueller "aggressively" raped her after buying her a drink at the St. Regis Hotel bar in NY in 2010.

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".

Burkman declined to say if he was working with Surefire.

Taub didn't respond and referred the email to the Special Counsel's office. But the site's founder, Jim Hoft, took down the records, saying that the site was investigating them anew and that there were "serious allegations" against Wohl.

The plan unravelled across U.S. media on Tuesday, one day after Jacob Wohl, a 20-year-old conservative blogger, tweeted on Monday night that a "scandalous" story about Mr Mueller was about to break. He told me "I'm just going to cut straight to the Chase..." Reverse image searches on the LinkedIn photos of individuals listed as firm employees revealed the photos had been poached from those of actors, models and stock photo images. Meanwhile, the profile for Surefire's "Tel Aviv Station Chief" features a photograph of the Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli.

But The Washington Post reported that on that day, Mueller was summoned to Washington, DC, to perform jury duty.
