Attorney Lisa Bloom Planned To Discredit Harvey Weinstein's Accusers

Gloria Allred speaks out about Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment suit Donald Trump “Not At All Surprised” About Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Allegations

Yesterday, Bloom suddenly resigned her position as Weinstein's adviser amid mounting pressure from both inside his company and by feminists.

Shortly after he said his short and sweet piece about Weinstein, he tweeted a farewell and headed off to North Carolina, telling everyone that big progress is being made on many fronts.

Bloom, who built her reputation on representing women in high-profile sexual harassment cases against powerful men, including Bill O'Reilly, Bill Cosby, and Donald Trump, surprised many when she said she was joining Weinstein's legal team.

Trump's reaction to the controversy surrounding Weinstein comes after his son got into a contentious exchange about the issue with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter and on the one-year anniversary of the leaked Access Hollywood tape where Trump was heard talking to Billy Bush which was later referred to as the "Pussygate" scandal.

Weinstein was a major supporter for Hillary Clinton's failed run for the presidency, donating tens of thousands of dollars to her campaign and throwing celebrity fundraisers for the Democratic nominee.

The remaining board members said Friday they have hired a law firm to investigate the sexual harassment allegations against the film boss, who is taking a leave of absence from the company.

However, the film only pulled in $330 million globally, the lowest total revenue for a Pixar title thus far. We've come to that point, and although it's a hard decision, we are ending active development for now.

His comments came after the New York Times published a bombshell report earlier this week which alleged Weinstein, whose company produced such hits as "The King's Speech" and "Django Unchained", preyed on young women hoping to break into the film industry.

Sivan claims she has had no further contact with Weinstein since the incident.

The New York Times's investigation found that dozens of women accused Weinstein of creating a hostile workplace in which they were subject to his ongoing, and persistent sexual advances. "Mr. Weinstein and his lawyer have confirmed the essential points of the story", she said.

A ballooning number of women have come forward with similar claims in the past 48 hours. According to anonymous sources, Weinstein settled with at least eight different women over the years.

When the scandal broke Thursday, some of the public criticism against Weinstein was also directed at Bloom for her decision to advise the producer.

Weinstein apologized for his behaviour and acknowledged that it had "caused a lot of pain".
