Two clients of feminist lawyer Lisa Bloom have come forward to expose the crooked woman’s actions. The two claim that Bloom told them that if they accused President Trump of sexual harassment they would be compensated in cash.
Bloom told the women that she would arrange paid appearances for them with media outlets. In addition, the lawyer planned to secure cold hard cash from donors if the women would just make these accusations public.
One woman was offered as much as $75,00 for her accusations. She eventually decided not to follow through with the scheme. In text messages with Bloom, the potential accuser stated;
“It’s my understanding that there is some Clinton Super Pack [sic] that could help out if we did move forward. If we help the Clinton campaign they, in turn, could help or compensate us?”
During a text conversation with one accuser, Bloom mentions a Clinton PAC that would be willing to give financial support.
The news of this scandal is wrapped in irony because Bloom represented accused abuser Harvey Weinstein.

She did admit to accepting donations on her client’s behalf. She claimed the money was provided so that the accusers could receive security and relocation;
“Donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented.”
She also had to concede that she receives a 33% commission when media outlets pay for an appearance;
“Our standard pro bono agreement for legal services provides that if a media entity offers to compensate a client for sharing his or her story we receive a percentage of those fees. This rarely happens. But, on occasion, a case generates media interest and sometimes (not always) a client may receive an appearance fee.”
Bloom has also represented other sexual harassment accusers including those of Bill Cosby and Bill O’Reilly. She set up a crowdfunding campaign for Jill Harth. The former beauty contestant manager accused President Trump of sexual harassment in 2016.

After the president denied the allegations in public. Harth contacted Bloom to represent her. The lawyer lined up a donor and Hart’s apartment mortgage was magically paid off. Hart denied that her allegations were connected to the money;
“Nothing that you’ve said to me about my mortgage or the Go Fund Me that was created to help me out financially affects the facts or the veracity of my 1997 federal complaint against Donald J. Trump for sexual harassment and assault.”
While both women are claiming that Bloom did not encourage any falsehoods, the thought of being offered money to accuse a potential president of sexual harassment is fishy. There seems to be no reasonable explanation for mortgages being paid or even direct cash payments. These revelations will likely open up the accusers to scrutiny which is exactly what should occur.
