The top female attorney leading the charge against President Trump over unfounded accusations he “sexually harassed” multiple women before taking office came under fire Friday, with new evidence emerging that showed she offered big bucks to accusers willing to come forward in the months before the 2016 general election.
Lisa Bloom, the lawyer representing at least four Trump accusers, reportedly told the women she could arrange large cash kickbacks to those willing to go public with their accusations, saying she could orchestrate media appearances in exchange for donor’s donations.
In a bombshell report published by the Hill, two of Trump’s accusers admit Bloom offered them the shady arrangement.
“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,” writes the Hill.
The report raises serious ethical and legal questions surrounding Trump’s accusers. The President has vehemently denied all the allegations of sexual misconduct surrounding his campaign, saying he never met the women.
