I will donate Weinstein funds to charity — Clinton

After several days of silence over the horrendous allegations that emerged about one of their key donors and fundraisers, Democrats finally managed a response - but hardly one that demonstrated any sense of the scope and danger it presents to their party. Meantime, the group behind the Oscars - the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - has publicly condemned Weinstein and says its board of governors will meet this weekend to discuss any actions warranted by the Academy.

During the recorded conversation, Weinstein repeatedly tried to guilt Gutierrez into coming in to his hotel room for a drink while he took a shower, even though she voiced her discomfort.

"He basically said, 'You know, you don't need to do this piece, '" she says, adding that the public relations representative, Matthew Hiltzik, said he had spoken with other reporters who promised they would not cover the incident.

Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee who also received thousands of dollars in contributions from Weinstein, said she was "shocked and appalled by the revelations" and said such behavior "cannot be tolerated".

Crews and his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, attend the Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmys party in 2017. "We discussed the possibility of a separation and I encouraged her to do what was in her heart". Despite some reports in the media, no signs of attempted suicide were found, police said. But connections between journalists and Weinstein run deep and may have contributed to the self-censorship.

She said Weinstein asked Damon and Russell Crowe to call her to vouch for the employee. His tone was angry and desperate as he told her that she was embarrassing him, that she was making a scene in a hotel where he frequently stays. Her Senate counterpart, Chuck Schumer of New York, earlier donated Weinstein's campaign donations to women's charities.

Weinstein was fired on Sunday from his eponymous company, The Weinstein Company, after The New York Times detailed numerous sexual-harassment allegations against him in a bombshell report.

Don't be surprised when the drip starts happening with other drips, too. The third, Higher Heights, is technically nonpartisan, but since it supports African American women running for office, you can bet that the vast majority of that money will help Democrats.

"We all knew the story, but you can't back it up until something like this happens", she says, referencing the financial settlements paid to Weinstein's alleged accusers, which were just released to the media this week. His campaign accounts have long shut down, so returning the money is out of the question, but there are other points Obama could explain. I do believe that the only reason this came out now is because Harvey wasn't that powerful anymore.
