Clinton was warned about Weinstein by Lena Dunham

Clinton was warned about Weinstein by Lena Dunham

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday at a federal court in NY.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The report also describes how Weinstein used allies in Hollywood and the media to silence accusers, something he apparently tried to do even when he knew he would be the subject of an exposé. That is, friends of Pecker.

"Mr. Weinstein has never at any time committed an act of sexual assault, and it is wrong and irresponsible to conflate claims of impolitic behavior or consensual sexual contact later regretted, with an untrue claim of criminal conduct". The allegations go back decades, with some accounts generating interest by police in Los Angeles, New York City and London.

The Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal just got sicker as more allegations are came out against the exposed movie czar.

"Some aided his actions without realizing what he was doing", the Times said.

We are also told a large number of other actresses are also part of the suit but have so far wished to remain anonymous.

She won an Oscar in 1999 ― her only Academy Award ― for her role in "Shakespeare in Love", produced by Weinstein's Miramax studio. Paltrow told her agent at the Creative Artists Agency of the encounter, though the agent did not encourage her to report it to the company's leaders, according to the Times.

"I was hearing that Harvey's sleaziness with women had escalated since I left Talk in 2002 and she was unwise to be so closely associated with him", she told the Times in an email.

Weinstein had always been a generous donor to Hillary and Bill Clinton.

This was strongly denied by the Clinton campaign. Maybe, maybe not. Would it have damaged her presidency?

Dunham told the Times that Schake seemed surprised, but she promised to tell Robby Mook, the campaign manager.

Dunham said she had heard some of the stories others had heard about Weinstein.

Dunham said she also notified Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton spokesperson who was in charge of collaborating with celebrity campaigners.

She added, "I think it's a really bad idea for him to host fundraisers and be involved because it's an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault". So in March a year ago, Ms. Dunham, a vocal Clinton supporter, said she warned the campaign.

"Mr. Weinstein has been a significant contributor to both Republicans (Guiliani and Pataki) as well as Democrats (Clintons, Obama)", Baird told USA TODAY in a statement on Weinstein's behalf.

We were shocked when we learned what he'd done. It's despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage.

It should be noted that the Clinton campaign paid no price for ignoring the warnings of Dunham and Brown.

There are still more revelations about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct and the ways the powerful producer covered his tracks.

Soon after, Clnton and Weinstein began planning a TV documentary about her campaign, the Times said. A lawyer for Weinstein declined comment. The New Yorker followed with another explosive story a few days later.
