Such a class act.

Jacob Wohl, a pro-Trump fan of conspiracy theories, and Jack Burkman, a conservative lobbyist and radio host, stood in front of a half-full room of reporters and activists at a D.C.-area Holiday Inn Thursday to detail their allegations of sexual misconduct against Robert Mueller, the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The woman who they said has made those allegations, a Los Angeles native in her 30s, was slated to attend the news conference and give her own account. But, Wohl said, she feared for her life and on arriving in Washington, “panicked and boarded a flight to another location.” Burkman promised she would appear at another news conference in the near future.
Wohl and Burkman took turns speaking at the podium, detailing the allegations, complimenting each other, and defending their professional records against charges of conspiracy-peddling and political bias.
Little is known about the woman allegedly making these allegations. After Wohl and Burkman went back and forth on the exact spelling of her name, Wohl described her as a fashion designer, who was “well-educated and comes from a good family.”
“She is a gal who has an illustrious background and she is not politically oriented,” Wohl said.
“We went through every meticulous detail of her allegation, we cross-referenced it with public records, we joined historical societies to get some of those records,” he said. Wohl said they were “in the process” of going to police with the woman’s allegations and would file a report by the end of next week.
Burkman then stepped in and said the decision would be “up to my client,” and the evidence-gathering process was mid-investigation. “We have tentacles out in all directions gathering evidence,” Burkman said.
Actually, the woman’s name is Carolyne Cass. I would typically protect the name of an accuser but in this case, it is pretty clear that this is completely fabricated, especially since on the day this assault was supposed to have taken place Robert Mueller was serving on jury duty.
Having to give these two douchebags any attention is making my stomach ache, but as we know from the past ignoring this kind of thing will not make it go away, and I can tell you right now that it is already gaining traction with the Right Wing media.
I do not think that ultimately this is hurt Mueller’s investigation.
But since the FBI has been called in to investigate the allegations I can almost guarantee that these two yahoos are in for a very bad time.
