Political insider Ronan Farrow revealed that disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein secretly worked for the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016.
Weinstein, whose connection to the Clintons has been well documented, allegedly told Hillary Clinton she needed to find a way to “silence” Senator Bernie Sanders before he could win the votes of minority voters.
“I’m probably telling you what you know already, but that needs to be silenced.”
According to Farrow, Weinstein also sent an article to the Clinton campaign reaffirming his concerns about Sanders. A top aid responded, thanking him before saying they took his advice and asked him to review their new creative solution. The aid wrote:
“About to forward some creative. Took your idea and ran.”
Ronan Farrow claims that Weinstein had tried to leverage his relationship with Hillary Clinton against him to kill the story. Farrow played a major role in exposing Weinstein’s sexual offenses.
In early 2017, right Donald Trump was inaugurated, Weinstein was exposed for alleged “sexual harassment, assault, and rape” by more than a dozen women. Many claimed he leveraged his position in Hollywood to force them into the acts.
Before that, Weinstein had served as a major political donor to the Democrat party. He had an especially close relationship with both Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Harvey Weinstein had a prominent role in the Presidential campaigns of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton. He also was represented by left-wing celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom, who spent 2016 trying to cover for his crimes before finally dumping him as a client in 2017.
