Attorney Lisa Bloom Paid Trump Accusers for Their Stories

The Political Insider "Just two days ago Bill O’Reilly dropped a bombshell during an appearance on Glenn Beck’s radio program.
"He told Beck that he has proof some of the women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct were paid to do so. O’Reilly told Beck that his team of investigators discovered a tape where a lawyer offers a woman $200,000 to “accuse Donald Trump of untoward behavior.”
“ 'It exists. We have urged the person who has the tape to hand it over to the U.S. attorney, because my investigative team believes there are three separate crimes on the audio tape,” O’Reilly said.
"The former Fox host then answered if he’ll release the tape himself. Here’s what he said: “I may have to go to the U.S. attorney myself. I don’t want to have to do that and inject myself into the story, but I had my lawyer listen to the tape. … There are at least three crimes on the tape. So as a citizen, I may have to do this.”
"O’Reilly then said that the President is aware of the tape’s existence.
"Sound crazy? Well, just days later we’re learning for a fact that some accusers may have been bribed.
"According to The Hill" . . .
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 presidential race, 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 going rate on slander?"   Lisa Bloom asked donors for cash to pay Trump accusers  . . . "So maybe you’ve wondered, when you see one of these high-profile press conferences in which Gloria Allred or Lisa Bloom sits there with a client who makes an accusation: How is this woman affording to pay the lawyer? And furthermore, for what? Unless they’re suing the person being accused, what’s the legal question at stake?
"Now you have your answer: Sleazebag attorneys like Allred and Bloom represent these women in the hope they can help them sell their stories to the media in exchange for cash, in which case the sleazebag lawyer gets 33 percent. So before the accuser retains the attorney, it’s with the understanding that this is a money-making operation.
"Accusing famous men of sexual misbehavior is apparently big business for these two." . . .
