They Knew! Bill Clinton Confidant Warned Top Dems About Harvey Weinstein Rape Allegations
Linda Bloodworth Thomason, a confidant of former President Bill Clinton, admits she warned top Democrat operatives about the various sexual harassment and rape allegations made against liberal Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. It was “a warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears,” Thomason concedes.
Linda Bloodworth Thomason for The Hollywood Reporter wrote:
One of the best friends I will ever have and a man I love dearly, former President Bill Clinton, has certainly taxed my feminist conscience, but always without diminishing my affection. I even helped write his apology to the nation for his own sexual misconduct, was sitting next to him when he delivered it, and believe to this day it was based on something that was none of our business. And yes, some may call it hypocritical, but I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.
In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Clinton claimed she was unaware of Weinstein’s alleged horrid behavior.
It took staunch feminist Hillary Clinton FIVE DAYS to speak out against Weinstein’s sexual abuse accusations.
Not only did it take five days and the conservative media pounding Hillary for her to make a statement on Weinstein’s sexual abuse accusations, the staunch feminist sent her aide, Nick Merrill to tweet it out for her.
It’s difficult to imagine word of Weinstein’s transgressions never made it back to the Clintons, Obamas and other leading Democrats. They ignored all warnings because the checks Weinstein and his pals wrote were too fat to ignore.
