This time, Lisa Bloom is the one being accused!

On Friday, The Hill published a shocking report claiming the 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" towards the end of the 2016 presidential election.

According to the piece, written by John Solomon and Alison Spann:

"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… Bloom said her goal in securing money was not to pressure the women to come forward, but rather to help them relocate or arrange security if they felt unsafe during the waning days of a vitriolic election."

Reportedly, the aforementioned woman who declined to come forward decided to speak to the political website after Bloom momentarily advised Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Additionally, she actually backed Trump during the 2016 election, and has no ill will towards him because he stopped making advances after she said no.

In addition to sending The Hill a lengthy statement, Bloom slammed the story on Twitter saying the "right wing" is simply trying to "undermine the brave Trump accusers." Gloria Allred's daughter also takes aim at writer Solomon who is known for "'weaponizing' stories about progressives like me to feed to Fox News."

Most importantly, Bloom highlights the fact that

On Friday, the alleged victim's lawyer Ari Wilkenfeld spoke to NBC News where he says his client is "terrified" she will be outed.

"My client is terrified, and she does live in constant fear that people are going to track her down and figure out who she is… She feels badly for the many other women who are suspected of being her—who are also being hounded and harassed."

When the unnamed woman made her claims to NBC, she wanted the company to "do the right thing," and to keep her identity confidential. However, Wilkenfeld says the network hasn't been doing a good job with the latter.

no title

Don't think a powerful man having a consensual affair with a colleague is a big deal? Maybe to Matt Lauer it's not — but one of the many women he reportedly manipulated thinks differently.

Addie Zinone worked as a production assistant on NBC's Today back in 1999, where she expected to work toward her dream job of being an on-air journalist like Katie Couric.

What she got instead was a string of confusing workplace hookups with the accused daytime philanderer that went on to negatively impact her career, as well as her mental health.

Recounting the tryst to Variety, Zinone said she forged strong bonds with Couric, Ann Curry, and Al Roker during her months running the news on Today, but remembers Lauer keeping more of a professional distance — until she accepted a job in West Virginia.

One morning on June 8, the then-24-year-old received a message from Lauer on the company's instant messaging system out of the blue. She says he wrote:
