Hillary Clinton breaks silence on donor Harvey Weinstein's scandal

Attorneys for Weinstein did not immediately return messages Tuesday. "Anybody who sexually harasses somebody or anybody who uses their position of power, especially to coerce or intimidate anybody, that's low-life behavior and that's unacceptable". It also conveniently leaves out Clinton's much-repeated pledge during her recent book tour that "I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake".

Last Thursday, a New York Times report detailed multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein.

The Clintons, who have taken thousands of dollars from Weinstein since at least the 1990s, including more than $35,000 in last year's presidential campaign, have made no such commitment - nor has President Obama, who also benefited from Weinstein's fundraising and donations. Through his representative, Sallie Hofmeister, Weinstein denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex". On Sunday, he was sacked from the company he co-founded, the Weinstein Company.




"Where is Michelle Obama?".

During the 2016 campaign, Weinstein held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign at his New York City apartment and another with fashion mogul Anna Wintour.

The offices of former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden declined to comment as well. "I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this wonderful day", she said. "Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go", he said. "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like Harvey Weinstein". But this appearance at Rutgers is notable as it comes on the heels of the sexual harassment allegations being made against Weinstein - a longtime Democratic Party supporter and donor. The Times reported that Weinstein pressured younger women into giving him massages and asked them to watch him bathe, among other harassment.
