The New York Post: Apparent scheme to smear Mueller forwarded to FBI investigators

A scheme to pay women to make “false claims” of sexual assault against special counsel Robert Mueller has been forwarded to the FBI for investigation, Mueller’s office said 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,” the special counsel’s spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement.

Mueller’s office confirmed that the plot was brought to their attention by a number of journalists who said a woman told them she was offered $20,000 by GOP activist and noted conspiracy theorist Jack Burkman “to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller,” The Atlantic first reported.
