Hillary Clinton backer paid $500G to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day, report says | Fox News

One of Hillary Clinton’s wealthy pals paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women willing to accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct before the 2016 election, The New York Times reported Sunday.

Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit Clothing and a major Clinton campaign donor for many years, gave the money to celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom who was working with a number of Trump accusers at the time, according to the paper’s bombshell report.

Bloom solicited donors by saying she was working with women who might “find the courage to speak out” against Trump if the donors would provide funds for security, relocation and possibly a “safe house,” the paper reported.

Former Clinton nemesis turned Clinton operative David Brock also donated $200,000 to the effort through a nonprofit group he founded, the paper reported in an article entitled, “Partisans, Wielding Money, Begin Seeking to Exploit Harassment Claims.”

Bloom told the Times that the effort was unproductive. One woman requested $2 million then decided not to come forward. Nor did any other women.

Bloom said she refunded most of the cash, keeping only some funds for out-of-pocket expenses accrued while working to vet and prepare cases.

The lawyer told the paper she did not communicate with Clinton or her campaign “on any of this.”

She also maintained that she represented only clients whose stories she had corroborated and disputed the premise that she offered money to coax clients to come forward, the paper reported.

“It doesn’t cost anything to publicly air allegations,” Bloom said. “Security and relocation are expensive and were sorely needed in a case of this magnitude, in a country filled with so much anger, hate and violence.”

The Times article said it learned of Buell and Brock's connection to Bloom from two Democrats familiar with the financial arrangements who also said Bloom’s law firm kept the money from Brock's nonprofit group but refunded the $500,000 that Buell contributed.

Brock declined comment, according to the paper.

Clinton campaign representatives said they were unaware of his work with Bloom.

Buell would not comment on the financial arrangement, according to the Times.

Still, she claimed she was frustrated that Trump had escaped the repercussions that have befallen many other powerful men accused of similar misconduct.

The Times article expanded on a report in The Hill two weeks ago that said that worked with campaign donors and tabloid media outlets during the final months of the presidential election to arrange compensation for the alleged Trump victims and a commission for herself, offering to sell their stories.

In one case Bloom reportedly arranged for a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempted to score a six-figure payout for another woman.

The woman with the mortgage ultimately declined to come forward after being offiered $750,000, The Hill reported.

The paper reported reviewing one email exchange between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were solicited, without naming which ones.

Bloom, who is the daughter of famous attorney Gloria Allred and, like her mother, specializes in representing women in sexual harassment cases, worked for four women who were considering accusing Trump. Two went public, and two declined.

I see no mention of helping Kathleen Wiley, Juanita Broderick or Paula Jones here. Curious no?

"The dark underside of the current sex scandal engulfing the Clinton administration has yet to receive much media attention.
White House spinmeisters complain that the president is being persecuted for an inappropriate -- but nonetheless consensual -- sexual relationship with a woman not his wife. But before the entire Paula Jones-Monica Lewinsky saga plays out, that perception could radically change.
That's because a review of accounts by numerous women linked to Clinton reveals no less than seven allegations of sexual abuse -- and in several cases even rape. "


Clinton and Women: Up to Seven May Have Been Assaulted

The Media was complicit in the Clinton sex scandals back in 1998 and continue today. But, I would suggest, perhaps not in the best interest of women

Odd?

I find it interesting that in all of the Trump alleged shenanigans, unlike those involved with the Clintons,,,,; absolutely no one connected to them has mysteriously died.

Actually, it is about Clintonites supporting those allegations against Trump.

Where was their concerns for justice in 1998?

And how is paying off a mortgage somehow protection?

What is there to be shocked about? I didn't read anywhere in the story that there was any attempt to have women make false accusations against Donald Trump. Lisa Bloom is an attorney that does provide pro bono legal services to women that have been sexually assaulted or harassed and she does solicit donations to provide for expenses that might be incurred by her clients in these cases.

Of course when it comes to Donald Trump the women that have come forward are not accusers. They're women that have first hand knowledge that support Donald Trump's claims that he could get away with sexually assaulting women because of his wealth and celebrity status and that he used to enter the Miss Teen USA pageant girls dressing room unannounced so he could catch them in the nude. All of the women that have come forward have stated they can verify Trump's statements because they were either one of the women that Trump sexually assaulted and didn't come forward before because of Trump's wealth and celebrity status or they were a contestant of the Miss Teen USA pageant when Trump did enter the dressing room unannounced to catch a glimpse of these young girls in the nude.

They provide collaborating testimony based upon their own personal experience with Donald Trump making them witnesses and not accusers of Donald Trump.

Had Trump never made the claims then they would be considered accusers but because he made the claim and they're merely confirming that claims were true they became witnesses.

It would be nice if the news media, especially Fox News, at least got the story straight. No attempt to encourage women to falsely accuse Donald Trump and the women that have come forward are witnesses that can provide testimony that Donald Trump's prior statements about him being a sexual predator are true.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.
