Democrats paraded out three Trump accusers this week. Someone needs to check their bank accounts.
Celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom tried to bag ‘donations’ of up to $750,000 for women accusing President Trump of sexual harassment during the 2016 election, it has been revealed. Her attempts to secure payment for them were revealed by The Hill on Friday and confirmed by the 56-year-old later in a lengthy statement in which she called the journalist who revealed them biased and insisted she had done nothing wrong. In a statement to The Hill, Bloom acknowledged she engaged in discussions to get cash for women who made or thought about accusing Trump before last year’s election.
Josh Caplan reported this earlier today by The Hill:
A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 election, according to documents and interviews.
California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.
The women’s accounts were chronicled in contemporaneous contractual documents, emails and text messages reviewed by The Hill, including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were contacted during the effort.
More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct or assault, prompting a handful of Democratic lawmakers to call for his resignation and a larger number demanding a Congressional probe.
The president says they are all liars.
