Robert Mueller May Be Falsely Accused of Sexual Assault by Paid Women

Special counsel asks FBI to investigate scheme to bring abuse allegations against Mueller

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.

In her emails, "Lorraine" said the man alleged he could help her pay off some of her family's $30,000+ credit card debt in exchange for her making accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Mr Mueller, whom she told the journalists she worked with in the 1970s.

Burkman, a conservative commentator and lobbyist known for spreading conspiracy theories, had claimed Tuesday that he will "reveal the first of special counsel Robert Mueller's sex assault victims" during a press conference on Thursday.

Taub said the email struck her as weird and suspicious, and she immediately forwarded it to the special counsel's office. Burkman, who peddles conspiracy theories on his radio program, has posted Facebook videos accusing Mueller of being an alcoholic and sexual abuser.

The domain name for their website is registered to Wohl, a phone number on the site directs to his mother's voicemail, and LinkedIn profiles for supposed employees use edited photos of celebrities. 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.

"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", special counsel spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement to Fox News, without offering specifics.

According to the woman, during a phone call, Bill inquired about her time spent working with Mueller as a paralegal at a private law firm-Pillsbury, Madison and Sutro-in 1974.

What have Wohl and Burkman said?

. "I don't know who that person is and we certainly didn't pay anyone to say anything".

Wohl was raised and still lives in Orange County, a politically conservative area of Southern California, in a Jewish Republican home.

US President Donald Trump stops to talk to the media before walking across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, October 22, 2018, to board Marine One helicopter for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland., en route to Houston.

"I can't figure out why they would have contacted me", Taub said. So far, his probe has issued 35 indictments and obtained six guilty pleas and one trial conviction. The president has declared Mueller's probe is "illegal" and a "witch hunt", and some supporters of the president have attempted to discredit Mueller's investigation.
