WASHINGTON, January 1, 2018: After years of hearing liberals and Democrats scream over the influence of the Koch Bros. on the Republican Party, this first day of 2018 puts attorney Lisa Bloom and her anti-Trump campaign, as reported by Robert Gearty at Fox News, into the light of the new day.:
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.
Fox continues to report that Clinton operative David Brock donated $200,000 to the effort to discredit the President. Brock worked through a nonprofit group he founded to provide those funds.

The New York Times (Partisans, Wielding Money, Begin Seeking to Exploit Harassment Claims by Kenneth P. Vogel) says that Bloom told them 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 says she did not communicate with Clinton or her campaign “on any of this,” meaning buying false testimony from women against the President. She also maintains that her client’s stories have been corroborated.
Bloom disputes that she offered money to coax Trump accusers 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 says knowledge of Buell and Brock’s connection to Bloom comes from two Democrats familiar with the financial arrangements. They allege Bloom’s law firm kept the money from Brock’s nonprofit group but refunded the $500,000 that Buell contributed.
Clinton campaign representatives said they were unaware of her work with Lisa Bloom.
Buell would not comment on the financial arrangement, according to the Times. However, she claims frustration that Trump has befallen many other powerful men accused of similar misconduct. thinking people, however, have to ask.
With the deep pockets that Donald Trump has if he had assaulted women prior to his role as President, why haven’t there been a series of lawsuits against him?

Bloom worked with campaign donors and tabloid media outlets during the final months of the presidential election to arrange compensation for the alleged Trump victims. Some reports are that Bloom also took “commission for herself.”
Bloom reportedly made arrangements for a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage. She also sought a six-figure payout for another woman.
The woman with the mortgage ultimately declined to come forward after being offered $750,000, The Hill reports.
