Clinton weighs in on Weinstein sexual harassment allegations

Posted October 11, 2017

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein", Clinton said in a statement through her spokesman Nick Merrill.

"The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated", she added. "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", Clinton said in a statement.

When asked why Clinton has remained silent about Weinstein, Kaine responded he's "nobody's press secretary".

In 2013, first lady Michelle Obama praised Weinstein for his involvement in a student film symposium at the White House.

Taking her new book "What Happened" on the road, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Mondavi Center in UC Davis Monday night. Weinstein was later terminated from the movie production company bearing his name, The Weinstein Company. Tim Kaine of Virginia, said the campaign was over when asked if she would return the contributions.

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family.

Watch Doyle's full comments below, via CNN. He has been a longtime ally of the political family, and the Clintons rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons in 2015.

A high-profile donor in the Democratic Party, Weinstein has contributed more $20,000 to Clinton's campaigns since she ran for U.S. Senate in NY in 1999, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like Harvey Weinstein".

My guess is that the growing public pressure on the Clintons and Obama to say something - anything! - about Weinstein will force them to speak (or release a statement) sometime in the next 48 hours. She also had a message for women and girls, talked about President Donald Trump, "the new cold war" and more. The New Yorker story also details allegations that Weinstein subjected four others to unwanted touching that could be classified assault and exposed himself to several women and masturbated in front of them. "So, I'm hoping that will try to realize her dreams for the country and how much better it'll be than it is now".
