Jack Burkman has really bad timing (re: paid-for Mueller accusation)





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.

-----------

I have a feeling this is not going to go well for Mr. Burkman.

2. From his wiki page.

Wow, is he going to regret this.

"On October 30, 2018, The Atlantic reported that Jack Burkman was offering women $20,000.00 to falsely accuse special counsel Robert Muller of sexual assault.

American Decency Edit
Burkman heads the organization American Decency, a conservative organization that claims to have 3.62 million members, though this claim is unverified. The organization drew media attention when Burkman announced plans to protest the Dallas Cowboys signing of Michael Sam, the first publicly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, stating "We cannot just stand idly by as Christian values and morals are trampled. We will do whatever we can to preserve family values in this country."[11][12][13] Burkman called for legislation that would prohibit homosexuals from playing in the NFL. This proposed legislation was never formally introduced in the House of Representatives and never received a vote.[10]

3. Welp, I guess it's time for all of us to shun and abandon Bob Mueller ...

There's right-wing-funded accusers saying he did bad sex stuff, so ... yup, he's definitely out.

Wonder who will lead the charge in Congress?

4. He's getting gutted already on Twitter

To (mis)quote the once-funny Dennis Miller, "I haven't seen choreography this clumsy since Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald".

9. Of course he did... It underscores the extreme contempt the RW has for women...

They believe women are just waiting for them to wave $$ in front of them, to do their "bidding".

I soooo want this to be an epic backfire.


here's to Mueller et al.

8. Might be that the whole story about the women is a fake to make the media look bad

So the Mueller story was supposed to be a plant?

Per Natasha Bertrand

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.

15. A desperate smear campaign to tarnish Mueller.

Let's hope they nail this guy with conspiracy to obstruct with additional intent to maliciously besmirch.

This guy presents as a crusader for Christ ? What about - "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor" ? Is that merely a fortune cookie cliche and entirely meaningless to you ?

Hypocrite & Charlatan !

18. The "sad news" part really cracks me up! Yeah, he'd be sad to harm Mueller....REALLY!

Like anybody believes this foul, far right, well known rabble rouser would be so horribly sad to do this.....it's almost comical. This performance would make Eddie Haskell very proud.
