BUSTED: Woman says Trump supporter Jacob Wohl tricked her into going along with bogus Mueller rape claim

Published

Carolyne Cass, the woman at the center of Trump supporter Jacob Wohl’s bogus rape claim against special Robert Mueller, has told USA Today that he tricked her into going along with his scheme to smear the man investigating President Donald Trump.

In her interview with the newspaper, Cass revealed that Wohl first approached her by pretending to be a man named Matthew Cohen, who was purportedly a private detective who had received training from Israeli intelligence agencies.

Although Wohl, posing as Cohen, initially said he wanted to help Cass deal with some individuals whom she claims stole money from her, it eventually became clear that he wanted her to go on the record and make a false rape accusation against the special counsel.

“They made it up,” Cass said of a sworn statement about a sexual assault by Mueller that she purportedly signed and that was given to reporters at Wohl’s infamous press conference. “They wrote it and docu-signed it.”

Cass also said that Wohl “completely lied to me” about his identity and his intentions, while also explaining that she had to “escape” from Wohl to avoid going to his planned press event detailing the phony accusation.

Despite this, however, Cass says she has still not been contacted by the FBI, which received a referral from the special counsel’s office last year.

The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Published

on

Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.

A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
