Mueller refers sex assault scheme targeting him to FBI for investigation

According to The New York Times, she said the man offered her more than $50,000 U.S. to "make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller".

Burkman, who has pushed conspiracy theories related to the murder of former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich and has a reputation for seeking attention, had made a similar promise to reveal sexual assault allegations against a sitting congressperson at a press conference in November 2017, but he failed to do so.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation declined to comment.

Taub didn't respond and referred the email to the Special Counsel's office.

Under Mueller, the special counsel's office has been investigating interference of the 2016 elections, along with possible coordination between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

She said Christensen was reluctant to explain specifics and urged her to download Signal, a secure messaging app. The email offered to "compensate" her for "whatever rate you see fit".

"Reluctantly, I downloaded the app and he called me on that app a few minutes later". He said (and I will never forget exactly what it was) "I want you to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller, and I want you to sign a sworn affidavit to that effect". She says a man she said had a British accent sought to ask her 'a couple questions about Robert Mueller, whom I worked with when I was a paralegal for Pillsbury, Madison, and Sutro in 1974'. She said the man "offered to pay off all of my credit card debt, plus bring me a check for $20,000 if I would do it". The firm said no one by that name worked at that firm with Mueller in the 1970s. The law firm told me late on Tuesday afternoon, however, that it has "no record of this individual working for our firm".

Wohl is allegedly involved in an attempted plot to smear Robert Mueller - who is now investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 US election- orchestrated by Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman. In fact, all the people listed on LinkedIn as Surefire employees have profile photographs of other people - some famous, like Waltz or Israeli model Bar Refaeli - as previously reported by Bellingcat, an investigative website.

Taub, a legal scholar at the South Royalton law school, has never met Mueller.

"I like a scandal that involves a Verizon family plan", Kimmel said.

Taub had a amusing feeling about the email from Frick on October 22, and took screenshots of it, and sent it to two friends - Jed Shugerman, a professor at Fordham University, and Mimi Rocah, a professor at PACE University, both of whom comment on legal affairs for MSNBC.

Jacob Wohl is a pro-Trump Twitter personality who appears tied to a supposed private intel firm, Surefire Intelligence, that was revealed to be bogus as reporters began looking into sketchy allegations of a payoff scheme for Mueller accusers.
