Feminist Lawyer Lisa Bloom has helped women with accusations against President Trump. As it turned out, she really helped them. Like she offered one woman $750,000 to come forward against the President. Who wouldn’t accuse Trump of sexual assault for that kind of money?
“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,” writes The Hill.
Lisa Bloom defended herself. “You’ll recall the very polarized and hostile atmosphere of 2016 presidential election. Emotions were running high, there were incidents of violence on the campaign trail, and threats of violence were a real and abiding concern. Nonetheless, several brave women came forward to accuse Donald Trump of harassment and assault,” she said.
“Donors came forward with offers of financial help to ensure the safety of the women who would come forward. I was happy to relay those offers of funds for relocation to a safer community and round the clock security,” she said.
“I can say unequivocally that we did not communicate with Hillary Clinton nor anyone from her campaign. We did not communicate with the Democratic National Committee or Perkins Coie (the DNC law firm) about the Trump accusers. Your questions seem to imply that we were trying to use the prospect of donor funds to entice women to come forward against their will. Nothing can be further from the truth,” she said. No one said ‘against their will.’
