One of Hillary Clinton’s wealthy pals paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women willing to accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct before the 2016 election, The New York Times reported Sunday.

Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit Clothing and a major Clinton campaign donor for many years, gave the money to celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom who was working with a number of Trump accusers at the time, according to the paper’s bombshell report.

Bloom solicited donors by saying she was working with women who might “find the courage to speak out” against Trump if the donors would provide funds for security, relocation and possibly a “safe house,” the paper reported.

Former Clinton nemesis turned Clinton operative David Brock also donated $200,000 to the effort through a nonprofit group he founded, the paper reported in an article entitled, “Partisans, Wielding Money, Begin Seeking to Exploit Harassment Claims.”

Bloom told the Times that the effort was unproductive. One woman requested $2 million then decided not to come forward. Nor did any other women.

Bloom said she refunded most of the cash, keeping only some funds for out-of-pocket expenses accrued while working to vet and prepare cases.

Even the NY Times was forced to cover this.

Obviously this is only a one time thing though, right? It is impossible that this occured in any other instance. Especially with Roy Moore. Accusations are always evidence enough. Any crazy woman who wants money can say anything, but we must automatically believe!

Wikuleaks dropped evidence of collusion between the state department and the New York Times iirc. They let them screen what was going to be published so they could do damage control.

Doesn't surprise me. I mean, I think actual sexual harassment and/or assaults happen quite a bit but. False accusations also can be a very powerful weapon.

It's probably because no one wants to talk about it. I suggested this sort of thing was possible before and the most I got was scoffing. As for me, that may have been when I was taking yet another break from the site.

The failing New York Times is fake news.

Sure. Again, look at Roy Moore. Although that wasn't just false accusations that was also election rigging (DNC seem to always rig elections. See Bernie Sanders primary).

Didn't know that. I usually skip over his stuff. Radical centrist skepticism is boring.

Lefties don't wanna look bad.

failing new york times

you sound just like your daddy. their stock is at a 9-10 year high.

lefties dont want to look bad

we are quick to criticize our own. the right however cant manage to do this. Even though trump has given them plenty of reasons to do so.

as far as paid accusations go. People are always quick to jump aboard sex scandals. For either attention, fame, money, or all three. I do believe that theres an ounce of truth from one of the accusers though. In the majority of cases.

I just wish individuals like 85 would be equally as skeptical of these accusations when it's a democratic or lefty in the hot seat. Disturbing to think that individuals believe that their party representatives and leaders can do no wrong.

Lol'd. No one believes this, nice lip service though.

In the case of Weinstein, there was evidence. In the case of Al Franken, there was evidence. In the case of John Conyers, he admitted it. In the case of Anthony Weiner, there was evidence. In the case of Trump and Moore, only allegations were made and denied. Different situations.

Lol I may have made an assumption from being out of it and just reading the title and a bit of the NYtimes that something was confirmed that wasn't. I have no attention span! I wish I could stop getting sucked into politics and such.

Dude you are full of shit. we ousted Kevin spacey and Bill Cosby unanimously from the public sphere and went after Fraken and other democratic members the minute allegations appeared.

Your ilk cant investigate any allegations because you believe your kind can do no wrong. Yet history proves otherwise.

Theres no doubt in my mind that you would rather have a pedophile in office with an R next to their name than a democrat. Party loyalty is sickening.

I abstained 2012 because I didn't like Romney.

Fake news.

Probably from what I know. Just saying it wouldn't be hard to use false accusations if someone wanted to as well. Shit like that would just irk because I hate false accusations and related. Not an mra, just as some here might falsely put it, "autistic" about more minor things.
