David Brock And Clinton Pal Funneled $700K To Fund Trump Sexual Harassment Accusers

Weeks after The Hill revealed a $750,000 scheme by California woman's rights attorney Lisa Bloom to compensate women accusing Donald Trump of sexual misconduct - one of whom had her mortgage paid off after Trump ignored her pleas to become his makeup-artist during the campaign - the New York Times claims in a bombshell report  that DNC operative and Media Matters founder David Brock, along with major Hillary Clinton friend and donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, steered $700,000 towards Bloom's efforts to smear Trump with sexual misconduct claims right before the 2016 election.

As the NYT notes, several donors reached out to Ms. Bloom “asking how they could help." She told them that she was working with “a few other women” who might "find the courage to speak out" against Mr. Trump if the donors would provide funds for security, relocation and possibly a safe house."

Ms. Bloom would not identify the donors. But two Democrats familiar with the arrangements said a nonprofit group founded by Mr. Brock, American Bridge 21st Century Foundation, gave $200,000, while the fashion entrepreneur Susie Tompkins Buell, a major donor to Mr. Brock’s suite of groups, gave $500,000 to Ms. Bloom’s firm for the last-ditch effort.

Democrats familiar with the financial arrangements told the NYT that Bloom's firm kept the money from Brock's American Bridge, while refunding the money from Buell - a longtime friend and financial supporter of Hillary Clinton

Of note, Brock previously sat on the board of Hillary Clinton super PAC Priorities USA Action, and his group "Correct the Record" sunk over $1 million into a digital task force called "Barrier Breakers 2016," which had a mandate to "engage in online messaging for both Secretary Clinton and to push back against attackers on social media (The Atlantic)." Meanwhile, Brock's Correct The Record defended coordinating with the Clinton campaign and contributing $6 million to fund Hillary. 

"Correct the Record is a $6 million Washington D.C.-based political committee that spends millions on opposition research, message development, surrogate training and booking, professional video production, and press outreach for the benefit of the Clinton campaign—and by its own admission, does so in full coordination with the Clinton campaign," the Campaign Legal Center said in the complaint. -Free Beacon

The Trump accusers include makeup-artist Jill Harth and Katie Johnson. Harth - who allowed a Lisa Bloom donor to pay off her mortgage before she accused President Trump of sexual assault, approached the Trump campaign about doing Donald Trump's makeup, was rejected, and later cropped up as an accuser shortly before the 2016 election. Another Trump accuser, Katie Johnson fabricated a story of Trump raping her when she was 13 at one of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's notorious 'sex parties.' Johnson, another client of Lisa Bloom, withdrew her case against Trump days before the election, while the Daily Mail reported that she made it all up.

Brock is no stranger to meddling in Trump's affairs to try and influence the 2016 election - having spearheaded an army of Correct the Record "nerd virgins" who were "crammed into a newsroom-style bullpen in the back corner of the offices of American Bridge 21st Century" to attack then-candidate Donald Trump while vehemently defending Hillary Clinton. Various Brock-linked anti-Trump groups Media Matters, ShareBlue, American Bridge and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) set a $40 million budget to fight Trump at the beginning of 2017.

Brock is also no stranger to funneling money to people - once having paid $850,000 to a former domestic partner of over 10 years after he began dating D.C. pizza restaurant impresario James Alefantis. Brock's scorned partner, William Grey, threatened to expose damaging information involving Media Matters donors.

In an acrimonious lawsuit settled at the end of last year, Brock accused William Grey of making repeated threats to expose him to the "scorn or ridicule of his employees, donors and the press in demanding money and property." Brock claimed in legal papers that he sold a Rehoboth Beach, Del., home he once shared with Grey in order to meet Grey’s demands, which he called "blackmail" in the lawsuit. -Fox News

Ironically, Brock used to be a GOP political operative - having spearheaded 1993 sexual harassment allegations against President Bill Clinton by former Arkansas employee, Paula Jones - who was paid $850,000 by the Clintons to drop her lawsuit.

So just to be clear, Clinton operative David Brock and Hillary Clinton pal Susie Tompkins Buell steered $700,000 into a scheme to compensate Trump accusers right before the 2016 election. Which is yet another answer to the recurring question of just who tried to influence the election.

Drain this part of the stagnant swamp: "The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency whose purpose is to enforce campaign finance law in United States federal elections."

What do they really do with our tax dollars?

Well, what we can be sure of is that the Reheboth beach mansion was destroyed intentionally. I thought gay men were all about restoring such places. I believe they dug up the skeletons and crudely dumped them, maybe by rowboat or construction dumpster. The entire breakup drama was just that. Drama queens. What we have here is treason, sedition, pedophilia, and a whole host of other crimes against humanity. Does this William Grey have a twitter account? I have no current pictures of this William Grey.

So let me get this straight.  He goes up against the Clintons in '93, doesn't die, and then works for them 25 years later and still DOESN'T DIE?

Now I ask you, who could pull that off?

That is a pretty impressive feat. It outta at least be worth a T-shirt. Although I guess since he appears to be the only one that can make that claim, it wouldn't be a very good seller. Hard to make a profit with one customer.


Dick Morris is another one. He used to work for them, and is now against them. Its even more surprising he's alive.

Hold the boat a second Kiddies!
The article's from the NYT

Why is the NYT shitting on the DNC and Democratic operatives?
Why has CNN all but said the Russia gate is false?

Because they dragged the grappling hooks through their own swamp and are dying by their own hand,
So somebodies are being thrown to the wolves.


The Left's propaganda mechanism is starting to fold in on itself.  Collapsing. 
And as the press becomes more "reasonable" (for any of a variety of reasons including conspiracy to overthrow and sedition amongst them) it'll be interesting to see how people's tunes change.

Just yesterday having coffee with some folks, we were talking about NFLGate.  I was focused not upon the racial protest of taking to the knees etc, I focused upon the business side of it.  I was cold about what's going on. 
One of the progressives tried to push off the NFL problem being racial, etc., with "a big factor is the public's becoming concerned about head injuries, they're tired of seeing these nice young boys (Ah hem, minorities) injured.
I told him that was crap.  That people watch football for football.  I don't want to see anybody's politics, including my own.
Looked straight at him and told him The Politics Burned Down the Temple.

Nothing too complicated, I'd imagine. Globull warming nonsense. Go down there, put on some really warm cloths, get a few pictures taken, leave. Only thing surprising to me about the Pope stuff is that so many white conservatives across the world still buy into the catholic shit while the head of their church actively works to destroy their countries and way of life.

Read something about this a week or so ago. The author stated that the media would turn because the evidence is mountainous and there is no stopping the momentum. Also said that Sessions was put on "other" things but allowed to be thought the fool hile he has been running things down all along.

The final thought is this - when the public finds out just how shitty all of this is, the press must be on the "good" side or get slaughtered along with the rest of the perverts.

There is also a rumor floating around that 1/3 of Congress will not be returning January 2018.

All I need is the wife and kids on board. Fuck anyone who still clings to the bullshit.
