Trump supporters paid a woman to falsely accuse Dr. Fauci of sexual assault. She then came clean.

In an email titled "Exposing Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman," the accuser revealed to a journalist that she'd been charmed "into taking money to do this."

In today's edition of right-wing stooges making a fool of themselves, two ardent Trump supporters have yet again failed in their continued quest to pull off a successful smear campaign. Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman—two names you are probably better off not knowing—have in recent times gained notoriety for repeatedly staging fake sexual assault scandals against Trump adversaries. First, it was Robert Mueller. Then it was Elizabeth Warren and that hilarious fetish story. And now, undeterred by the epic failure of both, the duo has tried to defame Dr. Anthony Fauci by paying a woman to accuse him of sexually assaulting her.



Unfortunately for them, the third edition of their "false sexual assault allegations against anyone Trump hates" series fell flat thanks to the accuser developing a conscience and coming clean. The duo kicked things off on April 21, according to The Cut, sending members of the press a media alert about a woman named Diana Rodriguez coming forward with an explosive #MeToo story against Dr. Fauci. Very few outlets covered the allegation at the time, partly due to Wohl and Burkman's reputation, and partly because of discrepancies in statements and lack of evidence.



Over a week later, the woman reached out to journalist Nancy Rommelman of Reason, claiming that her real name is Diana Andrade and that she was previously romantically involved with Wohl. In an email titled "Exposing Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman," she wrote: "Hi Nancy, I hope you are having a nice weekend. I feel very bad about lying to you and others about Dr. Fauci. I took it upon myself to call Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman and record them (see attached)... Many thanks and again, I feel very bad about all this. I apologize to you, the other reporters, and Dr. Fauci."


"The reality is that I've known Jacob since 2018 and that he charmed me into taking money to do this," she added. "And I understand they're trying to get another girl to do it, too. They asked me if I knew anyone to do it." Wohl and Burkman did, in fact, attempt to prop up another accusation against Fauci, sending another email to the press—the day before Andrade blew the whistle—about a "former assistant" named "Karen Draper" allegedly coming forward. In her exposé email to Rommelman, Andrade also attached the recording of a nine-minute, 35-seconds-long call with the Trump groupies in which she got them to talk about why they were doing this to Dr. Fauci.



"Let me tell you something, Diana. This guy shut the country down. He put 40 million people out of work. In a situation like that, you have to make up whatever you have to make up to stop that train and that's the way life works, OK? That's the way it goes," Burkman reportedly says in the call. When Andrade pointed out that the pandemic isn't to be taken lightly, he countered, "Mother Nature has to clean the barn every so often. How real is it? Who knows?"


"So what if 1 percent of the population goes? So what if you lose 400,000 people? Two hundred thousand were elderly, the other 200,000 are the bottom of society. You got to clean out the barn. If it's real, it's a positive thing, for God's sake," said Burkman. When contacted to comment on Andrade's coming clean, Wohl responded "no comment" and Burkman replied only, "We stand by Diana and her allegations."
