Fox News host Sean Hannity sent out another “Tick Tock,” tweet on Friday morning promising that something was coming and as usual, he did not disappoint.
The Hill‘s John Solomon reports a ‘prominent’ attorney sought ‘donor cash,’ for women willing to come forward accusing President Trump of sexual harassment. The attorney is none other than Lisa Bloom, who recently came under fire for advising sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, the GP reported.
The Hill reports:
A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 election, according to documents and interviews.
California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.
The women’s accounts were chronicled in contemporaneous contractual documents, emails and text messages reviewed by The Hill, including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were contacted during the effort.
The GP reports:
Bloom admitted to The Hill that she sought funds from Trump accusers prior to the election.
“Donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented,” said Bloom.
“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,” added Bloom.
On last Friday’s edition of the Glenn Beck’s radio program, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly doubled down on claims about the existence of an audio recording of an anti-Trump individual offering “$200,000 to file sexual harassment charges against then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.”
Bloom is the daughter of disgraced lawyer Gloria Allred, whose client Beverly Nelson was caught forging a portion of Judge Roy Moore’s alleged signature inside her yearbook.
Earlier this year Bloom represented failed comedian Kathy Griffin. Griffin tried to defend herself for holding a fake head that looked like President Trump with blood all over it. After being called out for being violent and gross and not funny, Griffin hired Bloom and held a press conference.
