After taking nearly a week to address the sexual assault allegations against Democrat mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, Hillary Clinton finally addressed the issue — and decided to politicize it.
“This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment [or] politics. After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office,” she told the BBC.
She’s right you know — we even elected him twice! I’m talking about Bill Clinton, of course.
And speaking of Bill Clinton, we just learned from Fox News that,
Back when Bill Clinton was battling allegations he lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, Weinstein had the president’s back, and a hefty check in hand.
A recently uncovered 1998 story in The Washington Post lists the powerful producer – now accused of sexual harassment and assault by numerous women – among several Hollywood heavyweights who gave the maximum $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.
The detail gives a fuller picture of the longstanding financial relationship between the former first family and one of their best West Coast fundraisers. That relationship has been under the microscope after Hillary Clinton came under criticism for waiting five days to condemn Weinstein.
The money Weinstein donated to the related legal defense fund is long gone. And it appears the same may be true for Weinstein’s donations to The Clinton Foundation.
The Daily Mail reported the foundation will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from the disgraced movie mogul.
So they’re keeping everything they got from the guy. And, for the sake of Bill Clinton’s own personal image, I can’t imagine he’ll be returning the favor and donating to a legal defense fund for Weinstein this time around — help the man will likely need.
The NYPD has begun investigating a complaint filed by now 34-year-old Lucia Evans, who alleged to have been sexually assaulted by Harvey in 2004. In 2006, the statute of limitations on felony sex crimes was lifted in New York, while it was previously five-years. As a result of the removal of that statute, Weinstein can now be charged for that alleged crime.
