These days Harvey Weinstein is involved in big trouble after the New York Post broke the story about the Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal. The Oscar winning producer is known as a prominent donor to the Democratic party and some TOP Democrats including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Three days after the report, Weinstein was fired by the company he co-founded.
In the wake of Weinstein’s scandal, GOP urged to Democrats to return his donations. “During three-decades worth of sexual harassment allegations, Harvey Weinstein lined the pockets of Democrats to the tune of three-quarters of a million dollars. If Democrats and the DNC [Democratic National Committee] truly stand up for women like they say they do, then returning this dirty money should be a no brainer,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel in the statement. “
After this the Democrats tried to present themselves as a good people. They donated the contributions received from Weinstain. Sen. Patrick Leahy pledged $5,600 in contributions to the Women’s Fund at the Vermont Community Center, Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), will donate $5,400 to the non-profit Community Against Violence in New Mexico and Chuck Schumer has donated all of the contributions to several charities supporting women.
Although Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton had ties to Weinstein, they did not came with a response on the bombshell report about Weinstein.
According to CNN, longtime aides to Hillary Clinton are concerned by the Clintons’ silence on the issue. Weinstein is known as a longtime Clinton donor. He donated to Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund in the 1990s. CNN’s post also says that the Clintons rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons in 2015, and Weinstein served as a connector between Hollywood stars and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
If our President was caught in such scandal, Hillary Clinton would show up first to attack him, but when it comes to her friends she chooses to stay silent. What a hypocrite!
