FBI probe hoax manufacturing sexual assault allegations on Mueller, Jacob Wohl hilariously involved

Omg how can someone be this fucking stupid? Making up profiles, names, companies—that’s just too many lies and fabrications to maintain. This like some Stephen Glass/Jukt Micronics type of ridiculousness

OK, this whole thing is so confusing. Tell me if I'm off...


They wanted to discredit Mueller
Not being able to find an accuser, they made one up
They are now being investigated for making up a fake accuser in an effort to discredit Mueller
Profit?
They set up an obviously fake accuser, "Lorraine Parsons" and some evidence to make it look like Lorraine was offered money from one of these imbeciles.

Now they are "defending" themselves against the fake accusations they created.

This is an attempt to discredit the media.

Seriously, though, I have no idea how they thought this would turn out.

Re: the new thread title with the closing "update: hoax"

What's the hoax?

Is there no FBI investigation into this matter?

Were scumbags not trying to pay off women to make false claims?

Could a mod please make the title revisions more specific? It's confusing.
There isn't a woman, they invented her.

I'm so confused.

Wohl and Burkmen wanted to discredit Mueller with fake assault claims... but then also sent an e-mail to the media claiming to be a woman who was offered money to make fake claims by Burkman? What? So they hoped the media would run the story of them offering money to women to make fake claims... and the be like GOTCHA MEDIA, THAT NEVER HAPPENED, IT WAS US ALL ALONG!

This entire thing is a fucking omnishambles. How can people be this stupid?

They basically framed themselves framing Mueller.

... so these guys thought Cohen movies were documentaries about criminal masterminds, apparently.

Like holy shit, how can you be so dumb.

Wait, what exactly is a hoax? I am so confused now.
It's a hoax that was meant to get the media to post fake news based on nothing(That a woman who doesn't exist was bribed to make accusations against Mueller) to own the libs, but when the media didn't post it, the hoaxer made another hoax in which he made a fake company(Using a shadowed out picture of himself as the leader named something Cohen) that would then bribe a woman to make up a story of Mueller sexually assaulting her in New York in a suite of a hotel on the fifth floor where there are no suites(it's a gym) on a day that Mueller was on record as being in jury duty in DC. Of course, "company" posts about this at the same moment that the fbi and media talk about how the fakes a fake with a fake plan.

You think that's stupid? That's only 10% of the stupid level of the aftermath.

The tittle is confusing everyone who is coming late into this story.
There's nothing not confusing about this hilarious clusterfuck. So, why not? Title should be "Peter Wohl made a fake of a fake but got faked out."

I'm sure this plan sounded so foolproof in their own minds when they planned it.

Let's make up a fake person to fool the media, and when it comes out it was fake we can point at say "fake news! Told ya".. but then the media isn't as stupid as they think.

Sooooo...

They make up a story and a person that leads back to them.

Then they reveal that the person and thus the story is fake...

thus exonerating themselves and to make the press look bad?

was that the plan?

Jacob Wohl has been a waste of life for the past two years on twitter and should have been referred to the securities regulatory body for securities fraud. Hopefully they put him away for this shit.

Jesus CHRIST my head hurts after reading that. What utter stupidity to not only pull a scheme like that, but to have it get caught so quickly too. Good lord.

So what are we thinking the source of Wohls money is? Trump and or Russia? They’re the only ones who likely want to try and bring Mueller down, right? As dumb as they are at covering their trail on these false claims, I hope the FBI puts the full brunt of its resources against digging this up.

Thanks for the summary. Earlier today, I read that the people/person behind this were dropping hints that they'd be revealing an accuser against Mueller soon. Did they actually reveal/concoct an accuser or accusatory statements?

I read "Surefire Intelligence" or whoever these people are approached real women trying to fish for dirt on Mueller, offering to pay for their time. From the Atlantic article posted in the OP:

Jennifer Taub, an associate professor at Vermont Law School, received an email from a man using a Surefire Intelligence email address around the same time, on October 22. “It’s my understanding that you may have had some past encounters with Robert Mueller,” he told Taub, according to the email she forwarded me on Tuesday afternoon. “I would like to discuss those encounters with you.”
I just assumed they hadn't yet found a person willing to lie about Mueller in exchange for money. I guess they never did.

But are you guys saying the people pushing this put out actual accusations (as opposed to promises of future accusations)?

The sloppy planning behind all of this I think has much to do with the fact that much of the Right really does believe its own lies about "fake news media". So much so that they would concoct a really piss poor plan to frame Mueller while thinking the "fake news media" would have little to no vetting process in place to verify these claims.

Reality comes at you fast.

Now that I know how bad the old place is I went over to check this out and my God is it great. The first few posts is right wing loons jumping on the story and then once it's clear that it's a hoax it's just the handful of liberals left there laughing their asses off at them.

There is no accuser. As it was said earlier in the thread: Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman are framing themselves for framing Mueller.

Not quite. The plan was to release a fake person to the media claiming surefire was bribing her to make accusations against Mueller. Then when the media posted it claim "Fake news" and then use surefire to release the accusations of women they actually bribed. So they would both fake news AND accuse Mueller of sexual assault. Of course the media didn't bite, and the bribes were revealed as they were making the press conference.

Browsing the actual Surfire website makes me question whether my english is actually decent. Is this a confusing sentence or am I just dumb? I can't tell anymore.

"When an investor had his intellectual property ruthlessly stolen by a multi-national corporation, he hired Surefire Intelligence to collect overwhelming evidence that the company was in the wrong"

Does that.....make sense? Am I going crazy here?
