Hillary Clinton condemns longtime Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein

As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

In October 2016, while campaigning for Clinton, Biden said remarks by Trump on the tape about grabbing women by the genitals amounted to the "textbook definition of sexual assault".

Speaking at UC Davis on Monday night, Hillary Clinton said climate change must be acknowledged as a cause of the wildfires burning across California.

Attorneys for Weinstein did not immediately return messages Tuesday. Bill Russo, a spokesman for the former vice president, declined to comment to CNN.

"These allegations are low-life behavior".

Broaddrick has for decades accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978 while he was the attorney general of Arkansas, and has claimed that Hillary helped her husband cover up the alleged rape.

I'm not aware of anything specific that that was in reference to". Huckabee Sanders said, "I haven't been specific about anything.

"A New York Times report last week revealed allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein".

Weinstein raised about $1.5 million from 1990-2016, according to data from the campaign finance-tracking Center for Responsive Politics, and was a bundler for Clinton's 2016 effort, including at a star-studded fundraiser for Clinton in June 2016 at Weinstein's Manhattan home. Three days after the report, Weinstein was sacked by the company he co-founded. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized. "I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this awesome day", she said.

Prior to Tuesday's announcement, longtime Hillary Clinton aides were confused by the former secretary of state's silence on the issue, questioning - in private - why she had not weighed in at all.

"As long as I have known her she really has walked the walk and talked the talk on this", Solis Doyle told CNN's Poppy Harlow Tuesday. "So personally it is, it is disappointing she hasn't come out and condemned Harvey Weinstein". So, rather than jump on Weinstein, they give him a few days of breathing room.
