Hillary Clinton Finally Releases Short Statement On Harvey Weinstein – Doesn’t Mention His Donations

It has been days since the news broke that Democrat fundraiser and Hollywood power player Harvey Weinstein is a serial sex harasser. Hillary Clinton, who has deep ties to Weinstein, has finally issued a statement. She failed however, to address the donations she received from Weinstein.

Newsweek reports:


Hillary Clinton on Tuesday spoke out about Harvey Weinstein, after being criticized that she had delayed making a comment on the beleagured movie mogul.

A series of allegations that Weinstein had engaged in sexual harassment and abuse of several women were made public last week, prompting him to be fired from The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded. Further allegations were reported on Tuesday.

“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” Clinton said in a statement shared to Twitter.

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

However, Clinton did not make any mention of Weinstein’s donations to her campaign or whether she would be sending that money to charity. The movie mogul has been a big donor to Democrats, and following the allegations a number of lawmakers have said they are planning to offer his contributions to nonprofit organizations that help female victims of violence.

It is a very short statement. The fact that even Newsweek isn’t satisfied is very telling.
