Mueller's Office Notifies FBI Of Alleged Scheme Involving Harassment Claim

The report also says journalists tipped off the special counsel to the scheme after they were told about it by a woman who said she was offered the cash.

In May, Burkman offered a reward for damaging information about Mueller, and during the confirmation process for now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, he offered a $25,000 reward for damaging information about Kavanaugh's accusers.

Burkman posted on Twitter that he would reveal a sexual assault victim of Mueller's on Thursday.

The office of Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller has notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation about an alleged scheme in which a woman was offered payment to make false sexual misconduct charges against Mueller.

The attempt to spread what Mueller's office says are false claims about him also appears to be an effort to discredit the former FBI director as his team enters a critical stage of its investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation and whether the president attempted to obstruct justice.

Trump has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence, and calls the investigation a "witch hunt".

"Robert Mueller is a bad guy not just because of what he does inside the courtroom but because of what he does outside the courtroom", Mr. Burkman's Facebook post said. The woman, who had previously worked for Mueller as a paralegal in the 1970s, said she had been approached by a man "with a British accent" making the offer on Burkman's behalf.

"In more of an effort to get him to go away than anything else, I asked what him what the hell he wanted me to do", she said in an email obtained by The Atlantic.

She sent an email to reporters describing the interaction. Reluctantly, I downloaded the app and he called me on that app a few minutes later, ' she wrote, according to the Atlantic.

13 days ago I received this tip alleging an attempt to pay off women to make up accusations of sexual misconduct against Special Counsel Bob Mueller.

The statement from the special counsel, which rarely comments, comes one week before the November midterms.
