The special counsel's office said it learned about the plot from journalists who were told by a woman claiming she had been offered $20,000 by Mr. Burkman to "make allegations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller". The tale is a convoluted one, and it involves one of Mueller's most vocal critics on the right, a self-identified lobbyist named Jack Burkman, reports CNBC.

An alleged scheme to pay women to fabricate claims of sexual assault against special counsel Robert Mueller has been referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the special counsel's office confirmed to CBS News. The special counsel's office did not go into detail about the allegations or who is behind them.

The FBI declined to comment.

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.

The woman says she "immediately" hung up and deleted the app. "He said that we could not talk about it on the phone, and he asked me to download an app on my phone called Signal, which he said was more secure", she said in one of the emails obtained by The Atlantic.

Burkman was also involved in the conspiracy involving former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, whose death in July 2016, according to theories, was carried by the Clintons or the Russians following an email hack of the DNC by agents affiliated with Moscow.

"I didn't see Robert Mueller very much when I worked at Pillsbury, but when I did see him, he was always very polite to me, and was never inappropriate", she said.

Mueller worked as an attorney at the San Francisco law firm between 1973 and 1976.

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

Within minutes of Carr's statement, Burkman posted a video on Facebook revealing he plans to host a news conference in Arlington, Va., on Thursday focused on "the first of the sex assault victims of Robert Mueller. This isn't something I take any delight in", said Burkman.
