(National Sentinel) Tainted: Top women’s rights lawyer Lisa Bloom sought hundreds of thousands in payoffs for two women who accused President Donald J. Trump of sexual harassment, in part from donors to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
As reported by The Hill, Bloom attempted to line up giant payoffs for the women if they would go public with their accusations. She sought money from campaign donors as well as tabloid media outlets, offering to sell the stories in exchange for a commission.
In at least one case, Bloom reportedly arranged to have a donor pay off one of the accusers’ mortgage while attempting to score a $750,000 payout for another, the clients told The Hill.
The newspaper, in its online edition, cited contract documents, emails and text messages it obtained. That included an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that referred to pro-Hillary Clinton political action committees, Fox News added.
Bloom worked for four women who considered accusing the president over actions that allegedly happened years ago and in some cases, decades ago. Two decided to go public while two did not.
In a statement to The Hill, Bloom acknowledged attempts to obtain payments for the clients but added that the money was primarily for security and relocation expenses.
“Donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented,” she said.
For a short time Bloom represented accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, which disgusted one of the accusers who decided not to go public.
“I couldn’t understand how she could say she was for people like me and then represent someone like him. And then all the money stuff I knew about. I just became frustrated,” she said.
The woman said she supported Trump in the 2016 election and ultimately was not induced to come forward because Trump allegedly made his advance in the 1990s and stopped when she asked him to. She also noted that no one from the White House had been in contact with her, though she is friends with many people associated with Trump today.
The Bloom revelations come just days after former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly predicted that Trump would be hit with major sexual assault allegations sometime next month.
“There’s going to be a tremendous assault on President Trump” beginning in January, O’Reilly said, adding that Democrats now believe they have to pull out all the stops in order to get rid of a president they see as on pace to be reelected in 2020.
“There is an audio tape of an anti-Trump person offering $200,000 dollars to a woman to accuse Donald Trump of untoward behavior,” the former Fox News host said during an appearance on the Glenn Beck radio show, adding he may have to go to the U.S. Attorney’s office himself because “there are at least three crimes on the tape.”
“Donald Trump knows about the tape,” O’Reilly said. He noted further that the president should draw attention to it in order to highlight how a spate of sexual assault allegations against him “is an industry, that there are false charges and money changing hands.”
