A bombshell report from the New York Times published Wednesday reveals what many had suspected for years; both Bill and Hillary Clinton knew about –and helped conceal- allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.
The article, titled “Weinstein’s Complicity Machine,” details the enablers surrounding the studio big-shot, including celebrities as well as prominent political figures; mainly the Clintons.
The author describes the “celebrity shield” that Weinstein had created around himself, noting “Chief among them were Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
“But two prominent women said they warned Mrs. Clinton’s team. In 2016, Lena Dunham, the writer and actress, said she was troubled by the producer’s visible presence during Mrs. Clinton’s presidential run,” the article adds.
Dunham reportedly sent an email to the Clinton campaign ahead of election day, telling staffers that “Harvey’s a rapist” and “it’s going to come out.”
“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” the actress told the campaign’s deputy communications director.
