Feminist lawyer Lisa Bloom says that the journalist who broke the story about her seedy payments to Trump sexual assault accusers, John Solomon, is a ‘far-right’ journalist.
The Hill‘s Solomon went on Fox News “The Ingraham Angle” to fire back at Bloom and her client, noting that Jill Harth begged Donald Trump to be his makeup artist before her sexual assault allegations against candidate Trump resurfaced during the 2016 presidential election.
The Hill reports…
A New York cosmetics executive who publicly alleged Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in the 1990s repeatedly solicited the future president to become his campaign makeup artist and to pitch her new product line in the months before her story roiled the 2016 race, according to the woman and her contemporaneous emails.
“Hi Donald, you are doing a tremendous job of shaking things up in the United States. I am definitely on Team Trump as so many others are,” Jill Harth wrote the future president in an Oct. 1, 2015, email sent to him through his New York company’s headquarters.
“I can’t watch television without seeing you or hearing your name everywhere! It’s a good thing for sure but PLEASE let me do your makeup for a television interview, a debate, a photo session, anything!” Harth wrote.
“It kills me to see you looking too orange and with white circles under the eyes. I will get your skin looking smoother and even toned,” she added, boasting she would “sculpt your face” to look good on high-definition television sets.
In another email seeking to meet Trump personally, Harth offered to be a campaign surrogate willing to tell voters how the future president “helped me with my self-confidence and all positive things about how he is with women.”
According to The Gateway Pundit, in an email written on January 5th, 2016, Harth even promised to make public statements in support of Trump as a man of integrity that “treated women nicely, including herself.”
“I also want to put it out there that I would be willing to say at a rally or somewhere how [Trump] helped me with my self-confidence and all positive things about how he is with women to counter any potential negativity that may come out at some point in the campaign,” Harth wrote to Trump’s business assistant Rhona Graff.
“The connection between Harth’s business interests and her accusations have been intertwined for the past two years. Harth said she asked prominent lawyer Bloom to represent her after media attention to her sexual assault allegations began hurting her business in fall 2016,” reports Solomon.
Bloom even launched a GoFundMe to help pay for Harth’s expenses.
Last week, Solomon broke the story that Harvey Weinstein lawyer, Lisa Bloom, sought funds from Trump accusers prior to the 2016 election.
The Hill reported…
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 election, 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.
Bloom admitted to paying Trump sexual assault accusers cash for their allegations…
“Donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented.”
“Our standard pro bono agreement for legal services provides that if a media entity offers to compensate a client for sharing his or her story we receive a percentage of those fees. This rarely happens. But, on occasion, a case generates media interest and sometimes (not always) a client may receive an appearance fee.”
