A woman who had recently leveled sexual assault allegations on Dr. Anthony Fauci has now claimed she was paid by a couple of Donald Trump's supporters to lie about the public health official.

According to the woman, right-wing activist Jacob Wohl and his longtime pal Jack Burkman allegedly persuaded her to use details from an actual sexual assault she survived just after high school and paint Fauci as the assailant -- even paying her to do it, according to a report by Reason.

"The reality is that I've known Jacob since 2018 and that he charmed me into taking money to do this (see attached picture of us together)," Diana Andrade allegedly wrote in an email to the website. "[They also] had me do something like this . . . back in January."

According to Andrade, she couldn't carry the lie anymore after Wohl asked her to recruit another woman to accuse Fauci of sexual assault -- just like the pair have allegedly done to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former special counsel Robert Mueller. Andrade then decided she would try to record incriminating evidence against Wohl and Burkman.

"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."

According to Andrade, Burkman seemed excited about the mass deaths occurring from the novel coronavirus. She claims she reminded the pair that COVID-19 was lethal and that they should take the pandemic seriously.

"Mother Nature has to clean the barn every so often," Burkman reportedly said in response. "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 petrified Andrade, but Wohl begged her to stick with her story and keep her mouth shut nonetheless.

"What could be wrong, Diana?" Wohl reportedly asked. "You did a good job. You got paid. What's the problem? What seems to be the issue? You're freaking out. You're texting me late at night. What's the issue?"

During the recorded call, Andrade also asked the pair if a man who had delivered a five-figure amount to her in Los Angeles, was a lawyer like they had claimed. In response, Wohl gloated that he was a legitimate attorney with connections to the White House.

"Yeah, he's a real lawyer," Wohl told her. "He's a good lawyer."

Andrade decided to send the recording to Reason shortly after the call ended, thereby allegedly exposing the pair's scheme.

"I don't know how they do all these things and why they do all these things," Andrade told the website. "Also, he tried to frame Mueller . . . I'm like, how is he not in jail?"
