Weinstein was a big Democratic fundraiser, and gave money to both Clinton and Barack Obama (though Clinton's statement does not mention the donations or whether she will be giving them away).

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated", Clinton said. "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", the former presidential candidate said in a statement.

During her remarks, Clinton also addressed the Las Vegas shooting and called for gun control. Weinstein was later terminated from the movie production company bearing his name, The Weinstein Company.

Clinton's former running mate, Virginia Democratic Sen.

Despite Clinton's brief response to the matter, and the all-too-obvious meanings contained therein, many are questioning why it took her five days to say anything.

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

If you weren't already disgusted by the New York Times's explosive story exposing decades of sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, then perhaps The New Yorker's recent publication (and audio) will do the trick.

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family. Bill Russo, a spokesman for the former vice president, declined to comment to CNN. More recently, the Clintons rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons in 2015, and Weinstein served as a connector between Hollywood stars and Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign. "So personally it is, it is disappointing she hasn't come out and condemned Harvey Weinstein".

McDaniel pushed back, however, on any comparison of Weinstein and President Donald Trump, whom multiple women have accused of harassment and was infamously recorded by Access Hollywood saying he could grab women by their genitals. The New Yorker story also details allegations that Weinstein subjected four others to unwanted touching that could be classified assault and exposed himself to several women and masturbated in front of them. "I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time", he told reporters.

Doyle said what Weinstein did was "repulsive, diabolical, awful".
