- Jacob Wohl said he’d introduce the world to a woman accusing Special Counsel Robert Mueller of sexual assault at a press conference Thursday.
- No accuser showed up. Wohl couldn’t decide on a spelling of the alleged woman’s name. And the woman may not exist.
- Mueller’s office referred the apparent plot to fabricate sexual assault allegations against him to the FBI.
Twenty-year-old conspiracy theorist and pro-Trump Twitter personality Jacob Wohl said he’d introduce a woman accusing Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Thursday. But his plans imploded when the woman – whose very existence is in doubt – was a no-show up at Wohl’s press conference.
On Tuesday, Wohl was linked to a failed plot to take down Muelle – a plot that involved paying women to fabricate sexual assault allegations against Mueller. Two women were contacted by the company Surefire Intelligence and told they’d be paid five figures if they made those false claims.
Those plans didn’t work out. But after the plan was revealed by reporters at NBC News and The Atlantic, Wohl said he’d bring forward a different woman making those accusations at a press conference on Thursday at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn outside Washington, D.C. The alleged woman’s name is Carolyne (or Carolyn – spelled differently depending on when you asked Wohl) Cass.
No woman showed up with Wohl at the press conference and Cass may not exist.
At the press conference, Wohl – along with Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman – handed out a dossier of the unverified allegations against Mueller. The dossier was put together by Surefire Intelligence, which Wohl confirmed he owns in a video published Thursday morning. Surefire Intelligence does not appear to have any other employees;LinkedIn profiles for other employees seem to have been fabricated, with photos of celebrities like “Inglourious Basterds” actor Christoph Waltz and Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli used as stand ins.
Wohl and Burkman declined to answer most of the questions posed by reporters at the press conference. Wohl criticised people on the internet for Photoshopping him as a corn cob. Burkman praised Wohl as “a child prodigy who has eclipsed Mozart.”
Mueller’s office referred Wohl and Burkman’s plot to the FBI. Legal experts told Business Insider that the two could face criminal charges.
