Lisa Bloom tried to solicit cash from media for Trump accusers

Birds of a feather…

Shocker, not.

From NY Post: A women’s rights lawyer attention-seeking hack tried to solicit cash from donors and media outlets for women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, a new report said Friday.

Attorney Lisa Bloom offered to sell the alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets and wanted to pocket a portion for herself as a commission, The Hill reported.

She persuaded a donor to pay off one accuser’s mortgage and tried to get a fat six-figure payment for another woman who eventually declined to come forward even after she was offered as much as $750,000, the website reported, citing Bloom’s clients as sources.

Bloom told one prospective accuser that political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were also contacted as part of the effort, though details about that connection were scarce.

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.

“Donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented,” said Bloom, whose clients have included women who accused disgraced ex-Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and serial perv Bill Cosby.

Bloom, the daughter of noted women’s rights lawyer Gloria Allred, said she wasn’t pressuring the women to come forward, just trying to help them relocate or arrange security if they felt in danger after going public. She would not identify any of the donors.

Bloom also said a standard part of her contracts required women to pay her commissions as high as 33 percent if she sold their stories to media outlets.

“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,” she said.

“As a private law firm we have significant payroll, rent, taxes, insurance and other expenses every week, so an arrangement where we might receive some compensation to defray our costs seems reasonable to us and is agreed to by our clients,” Bloom added.

Bloom told The Hill she had no contact with Clinton or her campaign, but declined to address any contacts with super PACs that supported the Democratic presidential nominee.

One client she helped was New York City makeup artist Jill Harth, who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump in 1997 and then withdrew it under pressure.

She asked Bloom to represent her in the fall after hearing Trump describe her allegations against him as false, and became a vocal critic of Trump.

“I consider myself lucky to have had Lisa Bloom by my side after my old lawsuit resurfaced. She advised me with great competence and compassion,” Harth told The Hill. Bloom later set up a payment for Harth for photos she allowed the media to use, and also raised $2,300 from a GoFundMe.com page. Bloom also arranged for a donor to make a larger contribution — less than $30,000 — to help Harth pay off the mortgage on her Queens apartment, the website reported.

Another woman, who was not identified at one point demanded $2 million to tell her story. Bloom reportedly offered a six-figure sum, but the woman, who supported Trump, backed out.

Bloom said the donor money was never intended “to entice women to come forward against their will. Nothing can be further from the truth. Some clients asked for small photo licensing fees while others wanted more to protect their security,” she said.

Harth charged that during a January 1993 meeting at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, Trump shoved her against a wall and groped her.

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.

  1. For the Left, there are no limits to what they’ll do in order to take down a duly-elected President, who has done more for the U.S. economy than Obama had in 8 long years.

    • Amen to that! The fact that they just won’t “give up” their concerted effort to find some reason to impeach Trump just leaves me unsettled. The fact that the Demorats would go to these lengths of dishonesty to win the election, should leave even those who vote Democratic pondering the ethics of their leaders.

      • ” these lengths of dishonesty to win the election,”
        I’m pretty sure you meant “to STEAL an election”. Heck,what more can they DO,outside of hiring a crew of snipers? They were officially Nuts before,but they’re different now-they don’t even bother to be sneaky anymore! They’re STARK RAVING MAD!!!

        • Yes, truck, they ARE raving mad…..but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t able and willing to stage the first real “coup” in American History by taking down Trump, one way or another….from inside the “deep state,” our Obama-Clinton “shadow government,” or eventually….with a bullet. I fully expect one or the other.

    • You’ve got that right. “Mom” is a real piece of work too. Remember the Chandra Levy fiasco? She was “Nancy Grace certain” that that nitwit representative killed her. Tried the whole thing on TV.

      These guys should all be made examples of bad citizenship for future civics classes. I went to law school once. They said I was unqualified because I knew both my parents.

  4. So… we are to just forget about Clinton’s actual sexual escapades and misdeeds while he was a sitting president (and governor) and it all happened so long, long ago. But let’s dredge up or make up sexual misdeed allegations against Trump while he wasn’t president and it all happened so long, long ago, right? Typical demrat hypocrisy and logic.

    • He needs to go public with these allegations,and say to America, “If you can bring PROOF to light,I’ll GLADLY do what I need to do. But,being a Lawyer,I’m sure you know that without PROOF,all you have is a story that may or may not be true,or based on truth. No offense to any Women (or MEN-there’s now a MAN who has stepped forward…) who were sexually compromised,but if you can’t PROVE it,you DON’T HAVE A CASE.”

    • phoenix . . . God Bless you for stating the obvious! They thought nothing of either Slick Wille’s criminal sexual escapades, not the horrible antics of Killary in making the women who cried “foul” go away . . . yet, now there is a clamor to “impeach President Trump” for triflin’ acts, that do not rise to the level of evil that the accusers of Trump would have us believe. The one bimbo said that Trump came backstage during the Miss America pageant, and “she was completely naked” under her bathrobe (how many of us are completely naked under the clothes we’ve wearing–I would bet 100% of us can claim that. The second woman cries how her whole life has been ruined because Trump kissed her not on the cheek, but on her mouth at some celebratory function. She would nearly have us believe that she has suffered PTSD all these years due to this. I say BS to that. Then we have the oldest of the women, who claims that while sitting next to Trump on a plane, his hand slid up her skirt. This happen like 30 years ago. I mean what in blue blazes is she hollering about. Yes, people make mistakes, judge them by their actions of today, not decades ago. If we are to be judged on indiscretions of our younger years, then the law of repentance comes to naught. In another case a young woman was offered as much as $750,000 to tell her lurid story regarding Trump. Thank God this woman did not act on this enticement. If I were an employer, I certainly would not employ any of the aforementioned trio . . . they are just bad news.

    • This is what I was trying to say a while back. “Allegations” are just that. Unless the target admits it, they must be proven. If we allow people to be harmed simply because someone “alleges” that something happened we are on a slippery slope.

      The double (or triple) standard is the hallmark of hypocrisy. These “win at all costs” types have no sense of shame (or ethics). That should be clear recently. Look at the DoJ and the FBI! I laugh at it too, but these are serious crimes.

      Many of these mutts honestly believe they are much smarter than we are and, therefore, whatever THEY decide to do, and however they decide to do it, is justified. This is not going away without a shake up. People need serious jail time and lawsuits.

  5. I doubt this surprises anyone on the left or right… Allred spawn.

    Here’s the sad part:
    On the left there are three responses:
    1) Don’t care.
    2) Any means to an end.
    3) You go, girl! We’re 100% behind you!

    I.E., they have neither ethics nor morality.
    Legality is moot if you can get away with it.

    It will only be possible to overturn the left when the center, moderates, and those confused or brainwashed (or content to believe what the MSM tells them) start looking for FACTS and do a reality check.
    Pull that curtain back, Toto!

  6. Something else needs to be done here-A MANDATORY Year in Prison for ANYONE who brings allegations of Sexual assault that can’t be proven. Added time if any of it is leaked to the Media,as that drags it into the Court of Public Opinion,which develops legs of its own.

    • truck . . . Congratulations, you have brought up something that absolutely needs to be implemented. Those who are willing to lie, either with or without payment for doing such need to do prison time. I would say further, the time needs to be served in a state prison, and I am not talking about a “country club” detention center. All of a sudden we have all of these preposterous claims that were not brought to light at the time they supposedly happened, and remain unsubstantiated. This kind of nefarious action causes good people, mostly men to loose their reputations, perhaps never to be regained.

      I feel a real anger over the woman who accused Judge Moore, and now her attorney (Gloria Allred) will not allow the year book that Moore supposedly wrote in to be inspected by experts in both handwriting, and the analysis of the ink, to see if it makes the original ink used.

      I feel a real sorrow over the Senator or Representative who had talked about find a surrogate so he and his wife could have another child. I cannot envision that he said to any of these women . . . “. . . here come into my office, I going to bend you over my desk and impregnate you, so that my wife and I can have an additional child.” How could any adult woman of even average intelligence think that surrogacy is done in this manner. It is all very sterile, test tube kind of activity. This is a horrible, horrible instance of injustice. The fact that he mentioned surrogacy does not in my mind rise to the level of “sexual harassment.” I would hope that all the women who complained about him loose their jobs when his replacement gets to town.

  10. I have a difficult time envisioning Trump, surrounded by lawyers, reading about this and not doing anything about it. We are being led to believe that there is no such thing as sedition.

    Anybody remember Charles Manson? He wasn’t present at the murders. He still went away for murder. Engaging and facilitating a crime is “conspiracy”. This cutthroat mother/daughter team can’t hide behind a law degree commit crimes.

    In case anyone wondered, the prisons are FULL of ex-lawyers. While I’m sure they are pretty careful with what they say or write, we all get the idea of what they’re doing and why. They are simply cashing in on something they want to accomplish, namely the overthrow of the duly elected president.

  11. Harth was so upset in January 1993 with Trump groping here that she wanted to do his make up during his presidential campaign:

    “Jill Harth, a New York cosmetics executive, alleges that Donald Trump pushed her up against a wall and groped her during a January 1993 meeting at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort; she sued in 1997 but the suit was withdrawn.

    During Trump’s presidential campaign, however, Harth made several attempts to become his campaign makeup artist, The Hill reports, citing emails from Harth to the campaign.

    In another email seeking to meet Trump personally, Harth offered to be a campaign surrogate willing to tell voters how Trump “helped me with my self-confidence and all positive things about how he is with women.”

    This woman and her claim have ZERO credibility, just like her attorney.
