Attorney Lisa Bloom acknowledges trying to secure funds for her clients, who accused Trump of sexual misconduct
Legal powerhouse Lisa Bloom tried to line up big paydays for women who were willing to accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct during the final months of last year’s election, according to an explosive report.
The Hill reported Friday that Bloom worked with campaign donors and tabloid media outlets to arrange compensation for the alleged 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 payment for another woman. The former ultimately declined to come forward after being offered $750,000, the clients told The Hill.
“I consider myself lucky to have had Lisa Bloom by my side after my old lawsuit resurfaced.”
The Hill cited contract documents, emails and text messages it obtained — including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that referred to pro-Hillary Clinton political action committees.
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.
