Read carefully, because it’s about to happen again
The revelation that a well-known anti-Trump women’s rights lawyer attempted to secure incentive money for women to claim Donald Trump sexually harassed them in the weeks leading up to the presidential election serves as a red flag for how this exact scenario is likely to play out again in the near future.
“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,” reports The Hill.
The lengthy article makes it clear that Bloom’s mission was to swamp Trump with allegations so as to ensure his defeat in the election, although perhaps over-confident of victory anyway, Clinton Super PACs were not interested in contributing money for women to come forward.
One of the most interesting aspects of the piece is how the woman who eventually declined as much as $750,000 to go public admitted that when she rebuffed Trump’s advances, he immediately backed off, which is not really the behavior you would expect of a habitual sexual harasser of women.
The woman told The Hill, “she held no resentment about the early 1990s advance because Trump stopped it as soon as she asked him.”
She also said she was “disgusted” to learn that Bloom had initially agreed to defend serial sex molester Harvey Weinstein back in October.
As we discuss in the video below, having largely failed to ensnare Trump on anything damning with the Russian collusion investigation, the political class is set to smear Trump by re-directing the outrage generated by the #MeToo scandal against the president.
Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly says fake victims are being offered hundreds of thousands of dollars to publicly assert they were sexually abused by Trump. O’Reilly says that the claims are completely fraudulent but insiders hope the weight of allegations from a number of different women will be enough to force Trump to step down in January.
Some of the accusers who made the rounds before the election are re-appearing, with the media lavishing them with positive coverage despite new claims of Trump’s sexual abuse including asking for one woman’s phone number and calling another woman a rude word.
It is highly unlikely that Trump will step down simply on the basis of accusations alone, but the deep state is hoping that it will generate another cloud that will derail the president’s momentum on his policy agenda and help Democrats perform better in the mid-term elections.
