This time, Lisa Bloom is the one being accused!
On Friday, The Hill published a shocking report claiming the 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” towards the end of the 2016 presidential election.

According to the piece, written by John Solomon and Alison Spann:
“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… Bloom said her goal in securing money was not to pressure the women to come forward, but rather to help them relocate or arrange security if they felt unsafe during the waning days of a vitriolic election.”
Reportedly, the aforementioned woman who declined to come forward decided to speak to the political website after Bloom momentarily advised Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Additionally, she actually backed Trump during the 2016 election, and has no ill will towards him because he stopped making advances after she said no.
In addition to sending The Hill a lengthy statement, Bloom slammed the story on Twitter saying the “right wing” is simply trying to “undermine the brave Trump accusers.” Gloria Allred‘s daughter also takes aim at writer Solomon who is known for “‘weaponizing’ stories about progressives like me to feed to Fox News.”
Most importantly, Bloom highlights the fact that the article doesn’t discredit “that the victims who came forward were telling the truth.”
In response to the claim that donors offered money to the women, Bloom clarifies and says she began receiving offers after a Jane Doe Trump accuser canceled a November 2016 press conference because of death threats.
“Multiple donors then contacted me out of the blue with offers to ensure the safety of women who might still come forward. As an attorney I was obligated to relay those offers of funds for relocation to a safer community and round the clock security, and I was happy to do it.”
Additionally, Bloom tells The Hollywood Reporter:
“This all happened 13 months ago… It’s an effort to undermine the Trump accusers now that they are gaining momentum.”
There you have it…
