Lena Dunham Says She Warned Hillary Clinton About Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein and Clinton 2004

Along with Dunham's warnings, Tina Brown, a well-known magazine editor, says she told a member of Clinton's team in 2008 to watch out for Weinstein and to distance the campaign from him.

The 45-year-old made the claims in a New York Times piece published on Tuesday (05Dec17), saying she has heard stories from multiple women who heard her name mentioned during their alleged encounters with Weinstein. It's not clear whether allegations of his sexual activities reached the Clintons themselves, but the actress and writer Lena Dunham said she warned Hillary Clinton's deputy communications director, Kristina Schake, in 2016 that Weinstein was a rapist and that this would come out at some point. She recalled adding, "I think it's a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it's an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault".

The outlet claims that the truth began to leak out in 2015 after the New York City police questioned Weinstein about allegedly groping an Italian model, Ambra Battilana.

"To the extent AMI provided "off the record" information to Mr. Weinstein about his accusers", the company said in a statement that it was giving him information "at a time when Mr. Weinstein was denying any harassment".

The latest report details the alleged "complicity machine" surrounding Weinstein which enabled him to keep his alleged behaviour under wraps for years.

The "Girls" star told the newspaper that she also warned Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton spokeswoman, about rumors surrounding Weinstein.

About 2,000 people were killed in the deadly riots that followed the Babri masjid demolition. The Babri Masjid was built by Mughal emperor Babur in Ayodhya in 1528.

According to the Times report, Weinstein paid for erectile dysfunction drugs with his company credit card.

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein", Clinton's statement said. As far as Ms. Dunham could tell, the campaign had not responded to her concerns about Mr. Weinstein. Pecker is also good friends with President Donald Trump, and both Weinstein and Trump were known in the tabloid industry as untouchable "F.O.P's", the Times said.

Dunham, a vocal Clinton supporter, claimed that she told members of Clinton's campaign that Weinstein was a rapist after being troubled by his visible presence hosting fund-raisers and appearing at campaign events for the candidate.

This was strongly denied by the Clinton campaign.

"As to claims about a warning, that's something staff wouldn't forget", said communications director Nick Merrill. "The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated". In trying to coerce other women to have sex with him, he used Paltrow's Academy Award-winning "First Lady of Miramax" prestige as proof to that he could advance the careers of women who pleased him, she told the Times.
