Hillary Clinton Defends Harvey Weinstein: There Was No Way To Know Of Sexual Assault Allegations

The Sundance Film Festival in Utah will present the new movie “Hillary” in the upcoming days.

The film is a documentary about the life of the former Secretary of State and First Lady.

The Hollywood Reporter recently interviewed Hillary Clinton on a variety of topics.

Among the topics was her friend Harvey Weinstein.

Hillary defended herself by claiming not to know that Weinstein sexually assaulted victims.

From Daily Wire:

But in her interview with THR, she also defended her longtime friend, Democratic mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, despite “disavowing” the accused sexual predator back in the 2017, when he was first accused of dozens of sexual assaults and rapes.

There was no way to know, Clinton said, that Weinstein was a sexual predator before the women came forward, because Weinstein was nothing more than a distant friend and sometimes donor.

“How could we have known?” Clinton told The Hollywood Reporter. “He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense.”

“Of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior,” she quickly added.

That makes it sound as though Clinton just cashed Weinstein’s checks, but the pair have at least a cordial relationship going back more than a decade.

Indeed, he was a donor; Weinstein reportedly bundling around $1.6 million for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, per Newsweek, and giving around $1.4 million of his own to Democrats since 1992, when Clinton’s husband, Bill, first ran for president.

“The Weinstein family donated $46,350 to Hillary Clinton and to HILLPAC, a committee Clinton used to support other Democrats while senator,” Newsweek reports.

But Bill and Hillary Clinton were personal friends of Weinstein’s.

The trio were spotted together at fundraisers, like the Planned Parenthood 100th Anniversary Gala, which took place just a couple of months before the #MeToo movement began in earnest, and Bill and Hillary dined out with Harvey at New York landmark Rao‘s in December of 2016, after she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump — one of her first times out after the election.

It was a business meeting, The New York Times reported; Clinton wanted to make a documentary about her loss.
