It must be nice to be able to rely on a compliant media to take your back when you’ve been the victim of sexual assault allegations.
That’s a question to ask special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to a report on CNBC:
The special counsel’s office confirmed to CNBC that it learned about the “scheme” from journalists who had been approached by a woman alleging that she had been offered $20,000 by Burkman “to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller.”
To the average American it should be troubling to consider that members of the mainstream media extended such courtesy to the special counsel.
It’s a far cry from the way they treated President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
"The special counsel's office confirmed to CNBC that it learned about the "scheme" from journalists.." Huh. Must be nice to have journos working so diligently for your reputation, and not just running with sex accusations. Unlike with Kavanugh. https://t.co/pAVcrX7aA1

We make no pretense that the accusation(s), if indeed there are any, are/is credible in any way. But, it’s a sure bet that if there is an accuser she (or they) will present at least as much evidence as Christine Ford had, and almost assuredly more.
By the Left’s new standard that women never, ever lie about these things, it would be violative of the standard set by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee recently established, if a full investigation into Mueller’s complete life history isn’t immediately undertaken.
Even if it turns up nothing, it clears Mueller and preserves his integrity. Even more importantly, it sends a message to every accuser that Due Process governs, and not wild unproven accusations.
If the statute of limitations hasn’t run out when the investigation is concluded, perhaps Christine Ford can be held to account, as well.
As for Mueller, wouldn’t it be nice if this nudged him to abandon his baseless Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory?
So Mueller is opposed to people circulating false and completely unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about their political opponents for pay? Does this mean he'll be ending his baseless Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory investigation, or nah? https://t.co/WTM3hWN0Le

Don’t hold your breath. Swamp scum flows in one direction.
UPDATE: Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit, who employs Wohl, has since removed the documents from his website supporting the claims of Jack Burkman. It seems this may have been an elaborate con, we should know either way soon enough.
Earlier today we were given information on accusations against former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
We took the documents down and we are currently investigating these accusations.
There are also very serious allegations against Jacob Wohl.
We are also looking into this.
