Scheme to smear Mueller hits next ridiculous note as Wohl and Burkman emerge from mom’s basement
The ping-pong match of crazy between Gateway Pundit and Newsmax continues as the schemers who created a fake “security agency” and tried to solicit someone to make claims of sexual assault against Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reached the big “Press Conference” stage. The Thursday event—held, as all important events are, at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn—is the first time the woman behind the claims talked up by GP writers Jacob Wohl and Jim Hoft, and fronted by Newsmax writer Jack Burkman, can break her story to the world. Except … slight problem.
Update: after Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman claimed over and over that their Mueller accuser would be there, they now say the woman won’t be at the event because she’s “fearful for her life.”
For what are … reasons. CNN has reporter Oliver Darcy on the scene to report on this breaking event. Or broken event. And no one can say he’s not providing entertaining coverage.
Burkman’s face is noticeably covered in sweat. It’s dripping down his face.
The Gateway Pundit story didn’t just stop with a fake security firm whose phone actually goes to Jacob Wohl’s mom, it included fake court documents accusing Mueller of abducting a woman from a bar and raping her, while handily telling her his name and where he worked. But hey, you have to give them … somehow “credit” isn’t the right word. But there are Wohl and Burkman, standing on the stage in a Holiday Inn conference room, going forward with this thing.
Hopefully, this is the Oct. surprise, a couple days late, that Trump promised. Or maybe it was sending 15,000 troops to the border, or maybe it was one of a dozen other scandals/chaos happening under Trump this week, like the stock market dropping like a rock.
This feels like shades of Putin. Putin loves to smear his opposition with false charges, and then take them to a rigged court, so that the opposition disappears ‘legally’, into the pit of darkness of a jail cell for many years. Law and order is a tool used by despots and dictators, only in a very dark way.
