From DAILY BEAST:
A press conference intended to publicize sexual assault claims against special counsel Robert Mueller collapsed in spectacular fashion on Thursday, after the pro-Trump operatives behind the event failed to demonstrate a grasp of even basic details about their accuser or explain why they had repeatedly lied about their project.
Mueller has asked the FBI to investigate the effort from publicity-hungry Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman and pro-Trump Twitter personality Jacob Wohl, which has been dogged by accusations that they offered women money to accuse Mueller of sexual misconduct.
I was able to get a picture of Burkman and Wohl leaving the press conference:
But the prospect of an FBI investigation was the least of Wohl and Burkman’s problems on Thursday.
Throughout their 45-minute press conference, the two men repeatedly contradicted themselves and each other, giving cryptic non-answers that convinced approximately zero people in attendance that their allegations were anywhere close to the truth.
After initially promising that the accuser, a fashion designer named Carolyne Cass, would appear alongside them, Burkman and Wohl appeared to changedtheir minds by the time reporters assembled inside the dimly lit Holiday Inn in Rosslyn, Virginia.
Without an in-person accuser, Wohl and Burkman instead offered a signed affidavit from her that claimed Mueller raped her in a New York hotel room on August 2, 2010.
No other evidence was given, aside from a print out Wohl had distributed that noted Mueller had been in New York on August 5, 2010—left unsaid: that was three days after the alleged attack.
Additionally, they accused Mueller’s team of “leaking” a Washington Post story that undermined their tale. The report showed Mueller was in Washington on August 2 serving a jury duty summons.
Kids, there was so much shit going on at this so-called news conference, that you have to read the whole thing and as many other accounts as you can find. And as you read the entire article and all the things that went poorly for Burkman and his little sidekick, keep in mind that the entire time, Burkman’s fly was open (I kid you not!!!)
and his Batman Underoos were showing. On the right side, the open fly did cement the fact that Burkman really doesn’t have anything to hide.
