As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum Hillary Clinton Finally Spoke Out Against Longtime Donor Harvey Weinstein

An editorial from The New York Times on Friday implored the Clintons and Obama to disavow Weinstein, calling on Democrats to make sure his status as a major party donor would not prevent anyone from speaking out.

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein", it read.

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior". He also gave between $100,001 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

During an appearance on CNN's "New Day", Kaine was asked what lawmakers should do with money Weinstein has given to them.

During the 2016 campaign, Weinstein held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign at his New York City apartment and another with fashion mogul Anna Wintour.

Clinton, who has not taken her defeat to Trump in the last election lightly, blames all sides for her woes, and equally told The Times that in hindsight Brexit "should have been a bigger alarm" for her own campaign.

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family.

According to Page Six, the out actor claims that Weinstein attacked him at Hillary Clinton's birthday party in 2000.

The reports have put Democrats under pressure to disavow Weinstein and return or donate contributions from him to charity. Trump pushed back by touting similar allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton. "So personally it is, it is disappointing she hasn't come out and condemned Harvey Weinstein".

Biden has also been outspoken against alleged lewd behavior by President Donald Trump, which Trump was caught describing in the infamous "Access Hollywood" audio tape that surfaced a year ago. "Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go". The New Yorker story also details allegations that Weinstein subjected four others to unwanted touching that could be classified assault and exposed himself to several women and masturbated in front of them.

Doyle said what Weinstein did was "repulsive, diabolical, awful".
