Harvey Weinstein’s Lawyer Offered $750K for Trump Accusations

We hear a lot about how the process of suppressing sexual abuse accusations works. But how do you generate sexual abuse accusations? That’s the big question mark. We’ve seen a flood of these accusations. We’re told that the #MeToo accusations evolved out of a grass roots hashtag movement. But certain journalists and outlets seem to get the scoop on them.

Bloom, who has assisted dozens of women in prominent harassment cases and also defended film executive Harvey Weinstein earlier this year, represented four women considering making accusations against Trump last year. Two went public, and two declined.

In a statement to The Hill, Bloom acknowledged she engaged in discussions to secure donations for women who made or considered making accusations against Trump before last year’s election.

And when a potential client abruptly backed out of a pre-election news conference in which she was supposed to allege she was sexually assaulted at age 13, Bloom turned her attention to another woman.
