Clinton Compares President Trump To Harvey Weinstein - Brushes Off Allegations Against Her Husband

Hillary Clinton was silent at first when allegations of her 'friend' and long-time Democratic party supporter, Harvey Weinstein, had sexually harassed and assaulted dozens of women over a 30-year period. Clinton threw a comparison to Donald Trump and said that such behavior shouldn't be tolerated in entertainment or in Washington. When questioned about her husband Bill Clinton's accusers, she brushed it off saying it was dealt with a long time ago.

Several days after the allegations against Weinstein came pouring in, Clinton finally broke her silence and sat down for an interview with Andrew Marr of the BBC. She condemned Weinstein for the allegations of harassment and even rape coming from multiple women.

"I was really shocked and appalled because I've known him through politics as many Democrats have. He's been a supporter - he's been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who have run for office in the United States. So it was just disgusting and the stories that have come out are heartbreaking," Clinton said.

"And I really commend the women who have been willing to step forward now and tell their stories," she added, noting that Weinstein's behavior shouldn't be tolerated anywhere.

Clinton then says that Donald Trump is a sexual assaulter. "After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office," she claims.

She is most likely referring to the 10-year old 'locker room talk' tapes that were made public during the 2016 election. In the tapes, Trump can be heard bragging off the record with a reporter and told him that when you're a powerful celebrity, you can kiss women or grab them by the private parts and they don't resist.

"There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic," said Clinton.

Marr asked about the allegations against her own husband, former President Bill Clinton, which Hillary glossed over. "That has all been litigated. That was subject of a huge investigation in the late 90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past," she said.

Not all of Clinton's alleged sexual assaults have been litigated. By the time Juanita Broaddrick, who claims Bill Clinton raped her, spoke out, he was already president and the statutes of limitations has passed. Broaddrick was hounded by reporters for years but says she refused to talk because she felt the Clintons were too powerful to fight. A Clinton spokesperson denied the allegations.

During the interview, Clinton also announced that she would be giving back donations to her recent campaign from Weinstein, which she believes amounted to about $16,000. "Well, it has to come out of our campaign funds, so there's a little more, but it will be done," she asserted.

Weinstein actually contributed to the Clintons for years and gave about a quarter of a million dollars to the Clinton Foundation. He also brought numerous celebrities on board to donate to Clinton campaigns and causes, as well as contributed to the Democratic Party, some of which went to support Clinton.
