The extensive crimes of serial sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein have finally come to light.
Many brave women came forward to publicly tell the truth about Weinstein—which everyone in the entertainment industry and political mainstream media already knew.
While accusers came forward to expose Weinstein, Hillary Clinton did something truly despicable.
As journalist Ronan Farrow was fighting to put together a detailed exposé on Weinstein, Clinton and her aides were fighting to spike a pre-planned interview with Farrow because they knew he had the goods on Weinstein, a major Clinton donor.
From Daily Wire:
Journalist — and now Pulitzer Prize winner — Ronan Farrow, who helped break the news that Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein stood accused of years of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and even rape, says that when Hillary Clinton found out he was prying into the dark life of her friend and major donor, her team tried to cancel a pre-planned interview.
Speaking to George Stephanopoulos, Farrow described a harried call from Clinton’s team after they realized they’d booked an interview with Farrow and surmising the journalist would ask Clinton about her ties to Weinstein.
“Hillary Clinton had scheduled an interview while it was at the height of the Weinstein reporting and her folks got in touch and said, ‘We hear you’re working on a big story,'” Farrow said. “[They] sounded very concerned and tried to cancel that interview.”
Stephanopoulos apparently feigned shock, telling Farrow that he was “surprised” Clinton would run from the opportunity to describe her decades-long friendship with a man accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women, and explain why her female-focused presidential campaign was taking tens of millions from an apparent predator.
Weinstein has been a Clinton friend and donor since Bill Clinton ran for president back in the 1990s. Weinstein maxed out on personal donations to both Clintons, and when he could no longer give himself, bundled hundreds of thousands for their respective presidential campaigns. The Weinstein Company was a generous donor to the Clinton Foundation.
Although the Clintons said they were shocked by the news that Weinstein had allegedly been assaulting Hollywood starlets and models for years, and claimed, initially, that they would give Weinstein’s money to charity, there’s no available evidence that indicates the Clintons did much of anything as a result of the allegations. The Clinton Foundation kept the money.
It’s not shocking to learn that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to talk about it, then.
Hillary Clinton has proven time and time again to be one of the most corrupt and untrustworthy politicians in modern history.
She claimed all women should be believed, except for the ones who accused her husband of rape; those women were “bimbos.”
Clinton’s handling of the Weinstein saga shouldn’t surprise anyone. Her morality goes only as far as her self-interest.
