Former Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly is calling on President Donald Trump to order an investigation into celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom receiving payments for women willing to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.
An effort designed to “smear” Trump, O’Reilly claimed.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that Susie Tompkins Buell, a major Clinton donor, gave $500,000 to Bloom in support of a stable of so-called victims, and Clinton operative David Brock gave another $200,000 to the effort through a nonprofit group he founded.

Bloom solicited financial support for her show ponies, suggesting they might “find the courage to speak out” against Donald Trump if provided funds for security, relocation and possibly a “safe house,” according to the newspaper. None of the women followed through and Bloom was forced to return most of the money.
O’Reilly characterized these payouts as the ” real attempted subversion of the 2016 election.”
“Vile attorney Lisa Bloom has admitted receiving big money from the likes of fanatical far left smear merchant David Brock in her quest to defame Donald Trump before the election,” he said on his website. “Bloom was also involved in attacking me.”
Fox News ended its relationship with O’Reilly last year after the disclosure of a series of sexual harassment allegations against him — Bloom represented three women who had publicly accused O’Reilly.
The FBI and IRS should be investigating Bloom, Brock and others,” O’Reilly said. “Will they? President Trump, for his own sake, should order it.”
It’s enough to make all the attention on alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election appear more and more like a smokescreen.
“That’s the real attempted subversion of the 2016 election – secret money being offered for defamatory testimony,” O’Reilly insisted. “The allegations are staggering.”
