Clinton Backers Spent $700K Trying to Find Trump Accusers

Former Clinton nemesis turned Clinton operative David Brock was reportedly behind a six-figure effort to identify and bring forward victims of sexual misconduct by Donald Trump before Election Day. Brock’s American Bridge 21st Century Foundation reportedly spent $200,000, and one of his major donors, Susie Tompkins Buell, gave $500,000. Both sums went to the firm of Lisa Bloom. However the efforts did not meet with success, and Bloom claims most of the money was refunded.
