This Is Some Seriously Nefarious GOP Bullsh*t

Earlier today, a guy named Jack Burkman tweeted this:

He subsequently followed it up with a Facebook video saying that he would hold a press conference on Thursday with a woman alleging sexual assault against Robert Mueller.

Apparently, Jack Burkman has been shopping this story around to a number of different outlets for a while in an effort to both smear Robert Mueller and probably the journalist who took the bait and reported it. No one took the bait.

Before Burkman even wrote his first tweet, investigative journalist Scott Stedman warned folks to be on the lookout:

That apparently didn’t stop Burkman from pushing this conspiracy. However, The Atlantic is now reporting that Burkman’s scheme has been turned over for investigation by the 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 …

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 … 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 is worth noting that Jack Burkman also pushed the Seth Rich conspiracy. He hosts a radio and TV talk show on Newsmax. The Newsmax CEO is Chris Ruddy. Chris Ruddy is super close friends with Donald Trump. They exchange frequent phone calls and Ruddy often speaks to the media on behalf of Trump.

Does this mean that Trump was aware of this scheme? Well, I wouldn’t want to dabble in conspiracy myself.
