In her tell-all email, Diana Andrade revealed that the president's supporters were looking for another woman to accuse Dr. Fauci, too.
A woman who recently accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of sexually assaulting her now claims that she was paid to lie about the public health expert by a couple of Donald Trump's supporters. According to Reason, the woman sent out an e-mail to Nancy, their reporter, revealing what had happened. "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." Very few media outlets actually carried the news. Meanwhile, Daily Dot immediately debunked the claim.
The e-mail was sent by one Diana Andrade, but when she accused Dr. Fauci, stating that he had assaulted her in 2014 when she was just 20 years old, the name she used was Diana Rodriguez. "He looked rich and powerful, and I love smart men with grey hair. He told me all about his fantastic career in medicine, so I went upstairs," wrote Rodriguez in her description of the fictional meeting with Fauci at the bar of the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, D.C. The email furnished details of the supposed attempts of sexual assault and her subsequent escape, and ended with the statement, "Now, when I see him on TV touted as some kind of hero, I want the nation to know the truth. This is my truth. This is my story."
How about arrest all three of them and Fauci should sue Wohl and Burkman for every dollar they have and every dollar they’ll ever make.— TheValuesVoter (@TheValuesVoter) May 7, 2020
However, when she chose to reveal the truth, she stated that right-wing activist Jacob Wohl and his longtime pal Jack Burkman allegedly persuaded her to use details from an actual sexual assault she had survived just after high school and paint Fauci as the assailant. In her e-mail revealing the false accusation, she wrote, "The reality is that I've known Jacob since 2018 and that he charmed me into taking money to do this," and she even attached a picture taken when they were romantically involved. Also, that Wohl and Burkman "had me do something like this…back in January."
She was duped and or manipulated by an evil charmer.— Timothy York (@AdmiralGou) May 7, 2020
Wohl and Burkman should be prosecuted, since they were clearly looking for another fraudulent witness.
Andrade claims she couldn't keep up with the lies any longer, especially because the pair were looking to hire one more girl to do the same. "And I understand they're trying to get another girl to do it, too," she wrote. "They asked me if I knew anyone to do it. I ignored his inquiry about this. But it led me to feel like I needed to blow the whistle." That's when she decided to record incriminating evidence against Wohl and Burkman. For those who don't know, this isn't the first time the two of them have cooked up fake sexual harassment allegations, but with no luck. They had targetted former FBI Director Robert Mueller and Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

"Let me tell you something, Diana," Burkman reportedly says on the nine-minute, 35-second call. "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." Andrade counters that he and Wohl are not taking COVID-19 seriously. "It's not just any virus. I mean, it's a huge deal….I think you guys think it's something made up, and it's not." "Mother Nature has to clean the barn every so often," Burkman reportedly said in response.
I genuinely don't understand how there are no consequences for Wohl and Burkman, time after time.— Michael Cartwright (@mrmike772) May 7, 2020
"How real is it? Who knows? So what if 1 percent of the population goes? So what if you lose 400,000 people? 200,000 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." Burkman's "survival of the fittest" argument reportedly scared Andrade, but Wohl told her to stick with the story and to just keep her mouth shut. That's when she decided to call out Wohl and say he charmed her into doing this, at which point the two men talk over her, telling her that she "readily volunteered" and asking who cares if she "made up a story. Grow up, for Christ's sake."
Here's hoping Dr. Fauci files defamation lawsuit against Wohl and his nefarious attorney. The accuser has the receipts with the tape recording and text messages.— MzSphalerite (@SphaleriteMz) May 7, 2020
Probably something seemed a bit off to Wohl, who -seven minutes into the phone conversation- asked Andrade if she had told anyone about this. "You haven't talked to anybody, have you?" he asked. "Mm," said Andrade. "No one, no one, Diana," he said. "I think it's the weekend; you're bored, you're worked up. Can you sit on this for the weekend? Don't talk to anyone about this. Not your parents, not anyone, and it'll be fine." That's when she asked, "And is Dr. Fauci fine? I mean, is everything going to be fine with him?" Surely, with the way their conspiracy theories have flopped royally in the past, Dr. Fauci ought to be fine.
The world is full of smear artists like Jacob Wohl, some get caught other don’t.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) May 7, 2020
But the people they smear will forever live with those smears.
Not having legal recourse if you are a public figure to go after these folks is what gives them the license to continue to do it. https://t.co/ABNe3TtIlH
