Private investigation firm SureFire Intelligence, the company tied to manufactured smear allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller, is an elaborate front and hoax created by a right-wing troll.
The Special Counsel’s office told CNBC that the FBI is now investigating the situation.
“When we learned last week of allegations that women were offered money to make false claims about the Special Counsel, we immediately referred the matter to the FBI for investigation,” Pete Carr, a spokesperson for the special counsel’s office told the news outlet.

Just a thought: Funny how all the Liberal news sites jumped on the HOAX news so quickly, to discredit The Gateway Pundit article, yet NBC hid exculpatory information that would have cleared Kavanaugh of the gang rape accusation.

That is like saying that Crowd Strike is discredited because they
were tied to the DNC and some top people are from Russia.
How about waiting until the woman speaks?
Either that or admit women can lie and men can fake
what they say to attack other men?
We decided to investigate this matter to see who could be behind this apparent hoax. First, we reached out to a phone number that this woman gave us. After calling the number, we promptly received what we viewed as a threatening text message back, which read, “You’re in over your head…. Drop this”. The message included the home addresses of two of our editors, including myself.
Then out of nowhere, we received a phone call from another number originating from the same area code, of a man who claimed to be Mike Wilcox of a company called ‘Surefire Intelligence’. He again threatened us, telling us to “stop communicating with” the woman who had contacted us previously. (Both phone numbers have since been disconnected).
Around the same time as we and other journalists received this questionable email, a Republican lobbyist, radio host and right-wing conspiracy theorist, Jack Burkman (also mentioned in the questionable email), began promoting, via his Facebook page, that he is investigating sexual misconduct and alcohol-related allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Earlier today we were given information on accusations against former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
We took the documents down and we are currently investigating these accusations.
There are also very serious allegations against Jacob Wohl.
We are also looking into this.
There is still a press conference scheduled for Thursday at noon in Washington DC.
We plan on attending this press conference and will report an update at that time.
Update: We spoke with Jacob and we are interviewing him tomorrow.
We will post the interview.
UPDATE: We also spoke with Jack Burkman on Tuesday evening.
The press conference is on for Thursday.

I firmly believe mueller should be looked at as innocent until proven guilty
However, how does what you posted prove this is a hoax
Even if a shady republican did pay to try to get a story, how does that discredit this other woman
Because it’s a “trump operative”
Well why wasn’t the fact that Feinstein sent her “operatives” to be lawyers for ford, and sat in that story for months enough to label her story a hoax?
Why was anti trump “operative” Avenatti not enough to label his clients claim a hoax?
Why wasn’t the fact that the dnc sent operatives out to Yale trying to dig a story up on Kavanaugh, found Ramirez, who didn’t remember if Kavanaugh was the perp, until she sat with democrat operatives enough to call that a hoax?

Wait, you didn't even get to call them rape apologists yet. Slow down there, have a little fun.
Have fun you say, have fun laughing at rape accusations.... Okay then whatever floats your boat.
My gut tells me this is probably political, but if there are credible allegations they should be investigated
