Hillary Clinton 'shocked and appalled' by Weinstein accusations

11 October 2017

Five days after the New York Times broke the news that Weinstein, the head of Miramax and a major Democratic donor, faced a series of allegations of inappropriate behavior toward women over a several-decade span, neither Bill or Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama has said a single word about the incidents.

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

Taking her new book "What Happened" on the road, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Mondavi Center in UC Davis Monday night. Chastain is among the stars weighing in on the firing of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein from the company he co-founded.

The Virginia Democrat ran alongside Clinton on the Democratic presidential ticket during the 2016 election.

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein".

Davy Propper, Captain Arjen Robben, and Memphis Depay scored for the Dutch as they beat Belarus 3-1. With an attempt to claim the second spot in Group A the Netherlands team came to all guns blazing.

In a clip from the interview, Clinton tells host Sarah Ferguson she believes Trump is the most unsafe president in USA history and that the whole world should be concerned.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been outspoken on the issue of sexual assault, also has not appeared to make any public statements about Weinstein since the report came out, and the Biden Foundation did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.

Last week, the founder of Miramax and the Weinstein Company was accused by actresses, models, assistants (some of whom worked for him), and even a journalist of unwanted sexual advances and assault over the past few decades. "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like Harvey Weinstein". In the context of allegations against her husband, Clinton said, "I would say that everyone should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence".

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 a year ago. "Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go", he said.

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