Something's getting ready to come out about Mueller

Something ginned up by the right to discredit him.

@ScottMStedman
I wasn't going to report on this, but I think my fears are coming true. Based on information that I am privy to, I believe false accusations will be spread about Mueller in order to discredit him and possibly the journalists who are preparing this story.

It’s just a stupid hoax.

1. Of course. It wouldn't be "dirty" GOPs if they didn't

attempt to discredit him and everyone else affiliated with the investigation. But alas, shithole doesn't have a mirror.

2. Listen to Jane Mayer. She's extremely well connected

and extremely well regarded by her colleagues.

This has been happening all along and will continue, not just until after the investigation is concluded but until all the deluded fools who need to believe Mueller is dirty are dead.

4. Journalists get notified of embargoed stories in advance but can't say anything until embargo

is lifted. I trust Natasha Bertrand of Business Insider and Jane Mayer of The New Yorker that the lunatic right is getting ready to dump something. Hopefully it will be stupid and get no traction.

5. Says who?

Consider the sources....

Nothing surprises me anymore to what depths those protecting Trump will go to....

I am not worried....Trump and his supporters clearly are....

Shame on Natasha Bertrand though....I would expect her to be more careful....

7. Spurious paid accusations about a man who has subpoena power?

What could possibly go wrong?

10. It's possible the repubs will make something up and use it as an excuse to fire Mueller

or demoralize Dems and suppress the vote. Sounds like something they would do.

But of course it would just make voting all that more important! Vote, vote, vote!!

11. Special Counsel Refers Scheme Targeting Mueller to FBI

The FBI has been asked to investigate claims that women have been offered money to fabricate sexual-harassment allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

An alleged scheme to pay off women to fabricate sexual assault allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been referred to the FBI for further investigation, according to a spokesman for the special counsel’s office, Peter Carr. “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,” Carr said in a statement on Tuesday.

The special counsel’s attention to this scheme—which was brought to the office by a woman claiming she herself had been offered money to make up sexual harassment claims against Mueller—and its decision to release a rare statement about it to reporters indicates the seriousness with which the office is taking the purported scheme to discredit Mueller in the middle of an ongoing investigation.

The special counsel’s office confirmed that the scheme was brought to its attention by several journalists who were told about it by a woman alleging that she herself had been offered roughly $20,000 by a GOP activist named Jack Burkman “to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller.” The woman told journalists that she had worked for Mueller as a paralegal at the Pillsbury, Madison, and Sutro law firm in 1974. The firm has not returned a request for comment about whether the woman actually worked there.

The woman told reporters in an email, a copy of which I obtained, that she was contacted by a man “with a British accent” who wanted 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. I asked him who he was working for, and he told me his boss was some sort of politics guy in Washington named Jack Burkman. I reluctantly told [him] that I had only worked with Mr. Mueller for a short period of time, before leaving that firm to have my first son.”
