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

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

Taub said the email struck her as weird and suspicious, and she immediately forwarded it to the special counsel's office.

He said he would have a news conference close to Washington on Thursday with one of the women who claimed she was sexually assaulted by Mueller in 2010, and that the other four women still needed to be vetted.

In a video posted to Facebook, Burkman claimed Mueller "has a whole lifetime history of harassing women".

Over the last few weeks, several political reporters were contacted by a woman who said that she was offered money to accuse Mueller - who is investigating the Trump campaign for possible collusion with Russian Federation - of sexually harassing her in 1974 when they both worked at the firm Pillsbury, Madison, and Sutro.

She told the magazine that she had worked for Mueller 44 years prior and had experienced no such harassment. "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.

In a rare statement, Mueller's top spokesman Peter Carr said Mueller's team learned of the alleged payoff scheme last week.

Trump gave a simple "no" when asked if Mueller is attempting to issue him a subpoena, Politico reported.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

Journalists for the Hill Reporter did some further digging when they received a call from someone purporting to be Mike Wilcox, of a company called Surefire Intelligence. The unidentified woman told journalists that a man with a British accent, who supposedly worked for Republican commentator Jack Burkman, offered her $20,000 and to have her credit card debt paid off if she would come forward with the allegations.

Burkman has a long history of promoting conspiracy theories, like claiming government agents killed Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich. This salacious rumor was short-lived: Within hours, numerous journalists were able to connect a false sexual-misconduct tip they'd received about Mueller to Wohl and his associates.

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.

Wohl told the Daily Beast that GOP lawyer and lobbyist Jack Burkman told him he had hired Surefire to help investigate Mueller's past, but he didn't know anything about a plot to manufacture allegations. The Atlantic reported last night that Mueller has referred the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "He said that we could not talk about it on the phone, and he asked me to download an app on my phone called Signal, which he said was more secure", she said in one of the emails obtained by The Atlantic.

"In addition to any civil liability that they might have for a defamation claim, I think that you could make an argument that this is an effort to obstruct justice", said Barbara McQuade, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of MI.

She was busy teaching classes Tuesday when she got a text from Shugerman about The Atlantic story and realized she had her own communication from Surefire Intelligence.
