Attorney Lisa Bloom, who defended Harvey Weinstein and was caught plotting a smear campaign against his victims, told alleged Joe Biden sexual assault victim Tara Reade that she believes her but will still support him because she has to "fight Trump."

"I believe you, Tara Reade," Bloom tweeted Friday. "You have people who remember you told them about this decades ago. We know he is 'handsy.' You're not asking for $. You've obviously struggled mightily with this."

"I still have to fight Trump, so I will still support Joe," Bloom said. "But I believe you. And I'm sorry."

As Insider reported last year, Bloom worked as Harvey Weinstein's lawyer and plotted how to take down his victims:
Renowned victims' rights attorney Lisa Bloom worked with disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein behind the scenes to map a plan to discredit one of his most high-profile accusers, Rose McGowan.

A memo published in a new book by New York Times reporters who broke news of the scandal reveals that Bloom was working with Weinstein at a rate of $895 an hour to quash the journalists' investigation and organize a multi-faceted campaign to silence his accusers.

In "She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement," Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey published the confidential memo from Bloom to Weinstein that was written in December 2016, in which Bloom offered her background as a victims' rights advocate as an asset.

"I feel equipped to help you against the Roses of the world, because I have represented so many of them," Bloom wrote. "They start out as impressive, bold women, but the more one presses for evidence, the weaknesses and lies are revealed."

McGowan has alleged that Weinstein raped her at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival for which she later received a $100,000 settlement from him.

Among her proposed strategies to discredit McGowan, Bloom described a "counterops online campaign to push back and call her out as a pathological liar" that would make her appear as "becoming increasingly unglued, so that when someone Googles her this is what pops up and she's discredited."

Bloom also proposed "positive reputation management" via search-engine-optimization, starting a foundation focused on gender equality, and a pre-emptive press conference talking about Weinstein's evolving stance on gender issues.
As one Twitter user highlighted, Bloom describes herself as a "trial lawyer fighting for victims of discrimination, harassment and abuse."
