Hillary Clinton breaks silence on donor Harvey Weinstein's scandal

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton takes part in the Women for Women International Luncheon in New York City New York U.S

Weinstein contributed $3,000 to former President Bill Clinton's reelection campaign in 2000, more than $26,000 to campaigns or political action committees backing 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton since 2000, and more than $45,000 to campaigns or PACs backing former President Barack Obama in his two bids for the presidency.

Ferguson then inquired whether Australia should be anxious, to which Clinton said mater-of-factly, "I think the whole world should be concerned".

"It's not even comparable", McDaniel said, citing the reported settlements Weinstein had come to with women who had accused him, saying Trump "didn't have eight settlements". "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", read the statement, released in a tweet by press secretary Nick Merrill.

The recent report in The New York Times cataloged accusations of sexual harassment against the filmmaker that spanned three decades.

More allegations against Weinstein emerged on Tuesday, as The New Yorker reported that three women claimed he had raped them, and the Times reported a new slew of allegations from high-profile figures including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

Weinstein raised about $1.5 million from 1990-2016, according to data from the campaign finance-tracking Center for Responsive Politics, and was involved in fundraisers for Clinton's effort, some of which she headlined.

Speaking at UC Davis on Monday night, Hillary Clinton said climate change must be acknowledged as a cause of the wildfires burning across California.

Representatives for the Clintons have not responded to comment for this story, and Obama's office declined to comment.

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, for example, said in a CNN interview on Sunday that Democrats should give any money they received from Weinstein back.

Her statement made no mention of the donations.

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

A high-profile donor in the Democratic Party, Weinstein has contributed more $20,000 to Clinton's campaigns since she ran for U.S. Senate in NY in 1999, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.
