Recently, the New York Times came out with a report that some Clinton donors, during the presidential election, gave as much as $700,000 to help investigate accusations of sexual misconduct against President Trump. A lawyer by the name of Lisa Bloom received $200,000 from American Bridge 21st Century Foundation, a group founded by David Brock, a longtime Clinton ally. She also received another $500,000 from fashion entrepreneur Susie Tompkins Buell, a major donor to Mr. Brock’s various organizations. Bloom received the money to help fund her investigation of sexual misconduct by President Trump.
Bloom’s efforts fell apart near the end of the election. She told the Times she refunded most of the money and kept a little for “some funds to pay for our out-of-pocket expenses.” She claims not to have been in contact with the Clinton campaign and received no legal fees for her work. She also told the Times, “It doesn’t cost anything to publicly air allegations,” she said. “Security and relocation are expensive and were sorely needed in a case of this magnitude, in a country filled with so much anger, hate and violence.” While what transpired was not illegal, it does raise a question. Was it appropriate for Clinton donors to give money to help finance the investigation of accusations against President Trump?
Fox News Report: Clinton backer paid $500G to fund Trump accusers:
Was it appropriate for Clinton donors to help finance the investigation of accusations against President Trump? Is this type of thing necessary to help ordinary people to come forward? Or, should this type of tactic be made a crime?
