During a recent interview, Hillary Clinton was asked about donations she received from disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
She proceeded to throw other Democrats under the bus, claiming lots of other people in her party took his cash.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Hillary Clinton: Harvey Weinstein ‘contributed to every Democrat’s campaign’
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton downplayed financial contributions to her political campaigns by Harvey Weinstein.
“He contributed to every Democrat’s campaign,” Clinton said when asked about the disgraced movie mogul’s contributions at the Berlin International Film Festival, where she was attending a screening of her new Hulu documentary.
“He contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign, and John Kerry’s campaign and Al Gore’s campaign and everybody’s campaign.”
“I don’t know whether that should chill anyone else from contributing to political campaigns, but it certainly should end the kind of behavior that he was just convicted for,” Clinton added.
Weinstein, 67, was convicted Monday of first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape in New York City. He faces a possible sentence of between five and 25 years. Weinstein also faces charges in Los Angeles after he was indicted in January, just after the first trial got underway.
In that case, he is accused of raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in back-to-back nights during the week of the Oscar Awards in 2013.

Did she really think this was a good answer?
That's not the good statement she thinks it is. It seems the entire Democrat party was stained by Harvey.
