Special Counsel Refers Scheme Targeting Mueller to FBI

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.

He “offered to pay off all of my credit card debt, plus bring me a check for $20,000 if I would do one thing,” the woman wrote to the journalists in an email, a copy of which I obtained. “In more of an effort to get him to go away than anything else, I asked him what in the hell he wanted me to do. 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. 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.’”

It's.

A.

Trap.

My operative theory is that this is soon-to-be indicted geriatric ratfucker Roger Stone and his alt-right bitch boys, wannabes, and clingers trying to shank Robert Mueller.

Expect it to drop on Thursday night.

1. Methinks Jack Burkman will rue the day

he got involved in or thought up this scheme. I predict when confronted by FBI agents, he will rat out his co-conspirators so fast it will make your head spin.

3. What dumbasses.

This is like obstruction plus extortion plus who knows what else.
If they aren't spilling the beans already, they're going away for a looooong time.

Reminds me of those ads for home cameras where the thieves are in view and greeted by the voice of the homeowner.

6. The last gasp of mafia criminals on display.

Al Capone's gang and his ilk would still be fomenting terror if criminals were in charge, aka, rump's sycophants.

Some sad news. On Thursday, November 1, at the Rosslyn
Holiday Inn at noon, we will reveal the first of Special Counsel Robert
Mueller's sex assault victims. I applaud the courage and dignity and
grace and strength of my client.

15. I find it interesting that

Whitey Bolger just got offed in prison... he was moved around a few times to get him to that location where he had just arrived not 48 hours prior.

And now this mob activity, which seems to be totally unabashed now, is getting exposed. From yesterday's RICO revelation to this ratfucking thing and the idiot foisting himself on the people of Pittsburgh is certainly not looking too good. His maniacal elevation of his self appointed omnipotence is going to sour the public on him, if it hasn't already. All of this has now gone so far.

Who did not agree to such a plan. For the pittance she would've received, she could've sank our democracy.
