Hillary Clinton Finally Spoke Out Against Longtime Donor Harvey Weinstein

As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

It has been radio silence from Hillary and Bill Clinton since Hollywood legend Harvey Weinstein was disgraced last week following a string of sexual misconduct allegations.

The Clintons, who have taken thousands of dollars from Weinstein since at least the 1990s, including more than $35,000 in last year's presidential campaign, have made no such commitment - nor has President Obama, who also benefited from Weinstein's fundraising and donations.

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated", Clinton said in the statement.

When asked why Clinton has remained silent about Weinstein, Kaine responded he's "nobody's press secretary".

"Where is Michelle Obama?". He also gave between $100,001 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Clinton's running mate, Sen.

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.

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".

The former presidential candidate began her remarks by offering her sympathy for those impacted by the wildfires throughout wine country and her gratitude to the first responders.

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

Weinstein raised about $1.5 million from 1990-2016, according to data from the campaign finance-tracking Center for Responsive Politics, and was involved in fundraisers for Clinton's effort, some of which she headlined. "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like Harvey Weinstein".

Kaine wouldn't specifically say whether Clinton herself should speak out against the allegations, saying only, "Any leader should condemn this".

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 past year. The Times reported that Weinstein pressured younger women into giving him massages and asked them to watch him bathe, among other harassment. "I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time", he told reporters.
