Mueller is leading the Department of Justice's investigation into whether the Trump team colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 election. After investigating the allegations, according to the political website Hill Reporter, the reporters each independently determined them to be a hoax and that the woman had been offered a significant amount of money to make the claim.
Taub said the email struck her as weird and suspicious, and she immediately forwarded it to the special counsel's office.
The special counsel's office has referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation allegations that women were offered money to falsely accuse Robert Mueller of sexual harassment.
He seems to have meant Jack Burkman, a champion of the Seth Rich conspiracy theory, who was later implicated in the scheme with Wohl.
The Special Counsel was appointed to investigate Russia's attempts to influence the election that made Donald Trump President. She said the man "offered to pay off all of my credit card debt, plus bring me a check for $20,000 if I would do it".More news: Statue of Unity Interesting facts about the world s tallest statue

But the law firm she mentioned told United States media outlets they have no record of anyone under her name ever working there. He also refused to say whether Wohl or the bogus private intel firm Wohl apparently set up was working with him - claiming that he "can't comment on staff or subcontractors".
According to media reports, Surefire is a straw company for US-based Trump activist Jacob Wohl who tweeted on Monday that big allegations against Mueller were on their way. The email was sent to her by a person who claimed to be a researcher at Surefire Intelligence, Ltd.
The smear campaign appeared to emanate from a company called Surefire Intelligence, which seems to be connected to former teenage hedge fund manager and pro-Trump cheerleader, Jacob Wohl, NBC reported. Mueller, she said, "was always very polite" and "never inappropriate".
Burkman toldThe Atlantic he does not know the woman who contacted journalists about the alleged scheme against Mueller, and called his client a "very credible witness." .
"Mueller is a bad guy, not just because of what he does in the courtroom, but because of what he does outside of the courtroom", Burkman said.
Wohl told Gateway Pundit that he first heard the purported accuser's story when Surefire Intelligence was hired by the accuser to track "down some assets that were misappropriated by her accountant". Wohl told The Daily Beast that Burkman had hired Surefire to assist with his investigation into Mueller's past, but denied knowing anything about the firm's involvement in an alleged plot to fabricate allegations against Mueller when asked why his email address appeared in the domain records.
