Federal Bureau of Investigation asked to probe 'false claims' against Robert Mueller

The plan unravelled across USA media on Tuesday, one day after Jacob Wohl, a 20-year-old conservative blogger, tweeted on Monday night that a "scandalous" story about Mr Mueller was about to break. The identity of one woman, named Parsons, can not be verified. The law professor cofounded the Tax March, which drew more than 100,000 Americans to nationwide rallies on April 15, 2017, to call on Trump to release his tax returns, according to VLS.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that women were allegedly offered money to make "false claims" about him, CNBC reported Tuesday.

"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", said Peter Carr, spokesperson for the special counsel.

The scheme was uncovered after a woman who said she worked for Mueller decades ago told several journalists she had been offered $20,000 to accuse him of sexual misconduct. Parsons said she had worked for Mueller as a paralegal at a MA law firm in 1974.

She also told the Times that the man told her he was working for Jack Burkman.

"I downloaded the app and he called me on that app a few minutes later", the woman said. It came from Simon Frick of Surefire Intelligence.

Burkman says he'll appear this Thursday in a press conference with a woman with a credible accusation against Mueller.

FBI uncovered bomb suspect's ID with DNA, fingerprint clues
Trump's supporters have accused Democrats in turn of unfairly suggesting that the president was to blame for the bomb scares. Police closed roads around the AutoZone parking lot where Sayoc was arrested, and helicopters flew overhead.

NBC News reported the odd suspected plot may have been concocted by Surefire Intelligence, a self-professed "intel agency" with a website whose domain records contain an email address belonging to Jacob Wohl, a pro-Trump troll known for spreading misinformation and far-right conspiracy theories. "I just laugh. You probably shouldn't pick me".

Simon Frick of Surefire Intelligence wrote to Taub on October 22 that his organization is "conducting an examination of Robert Mueller's past". Tell me a decent method to contact you by telephone (or Signal, which would be ideal) and a beginning rate to talk with you about all encounters you've had with Special Counsel Mueller. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "Lastly, I would appreciate your discretion here, as this is a very sensitive matter".

Taub says the email is a mystery.

UPDATE: We also spoke with Jack Burkman on Tuesday evening.

Tread VERY carefully with this, folks.

Had he thought through that posting a fake photo of Bar Refaeli more than any other photo was likely to set off red flags, but was too enthralled by his own creativity and possibly a personal fascination with her to resist the joke that most quickly exposed him? Those theories have been disputed by law enforcement officials.

One 20-year-old American seems to have found the secret: Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli.
