These are Some of the Best Tweets about Jacob Wohl’s alleged attempt to smear Mueller (10 Pics)

So… If you weren’t on the Internet today you might have missed this, although by the looks of things Jacob Wohl will be a household name by the end of the day.
Here’s the short version of a ridiculous story.
A GOP operative reportedly tried to get women to sign a sworn statement saying Special Counsel Robert Mueller, when he was the Director of the FBI, sexually assaulted them. In exchange for committing perjury they would be paid $20,000.
That’s not even the craziest part.
Far right wing website The Gateway Pundit (Google “stupidest man on the Internet”) published documents claiming that in 2010 Mueller sexually assaulted a woman.
“The firm that produced this ‘investigation’ was quickly revealed to be SureFire Intelligence, which has a tiny digital footprint prior to the Mueller allegations,”
“Jacob Wohl, a 20-year-old conservative activist who is most well known for his reports from ‘hipster coffee shops in downtown LA’ about how Trump is secretly popular among young liberals, tweeted about the allegations against Mueller a day before they surfaced on Gateway Pundit, which he also writes for.”
Bellingcat links Wohl’s email address to the Surefire domain registration.
Most or all of Surefire’s employees apparently are fake, as are their photos.
“Their ‘Tel Aviv Station Chief’ uses a photograph of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli,” Belligncat reveals. “The ‘Deputy Director of Operations’ at SureFire is also fake, unless he moonlights as a minister from Michigan.”
NBC News, meanwhile, calls Wohl, “a disgraced hedge fund manager turned pro-Trump conspiracy theorist,” and adds – get this – that “calls to a number listed on the Surefire Intelligence website went to a voicemail message which provided another phone number, listed in public records as belonging to Wohl’s mother.”
So, it appears that someone was trying to frame Mueller to derail the Russia probe.
It clearly didn’t work.
The conspiracy to frame Mueller has been sent to the FBI which is now investigating.
It’s such a huge story it’s trending all over Twitter. Wohl at number one, Mueller at number three and Surefire at number eight:
Here’s how the Internet responded: with mockery and laughter, mostly about Wohl. Take a look.
