The deafening silence of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Harvey Weinstein

The Washington Free Beacon noted on October 5 that Mr. Weinstein "maxed out donations ($5,400) to Clinton's failed presidential campaign while adding more than $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between Clinton's campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and more than 30 state Democratic parties".

"I feel it happens a lot with women's issues and I feel really disappointed in both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton", Ms. Winstead, the chief creative officer at Lady Parts Justice, said.

Kaine ran alongside Clinton on the Democratic presidential ticket during the 2016 election.

Lane said Weinstein threw him up against a wall after the actor made a joke about Rudy Giuliani's comb-over.

Over the weekend, Broadway star Nathan Lane revealed on stage at the New Yorker Festival that Weinstein physically attacked him at a birthday party for Hillary Clinton in 2000, according to Page Six.

When asked why Clinton has remained silent about Weinstein, Kaine responded he's "nobody's press secretary". "But she didn't mention Harvey Weinstein", noted "New Day" co-anchor Alisyn Camerota. In 2012, Obama did a fundraiser for his re-election bid at Weinstein's home in CT.

Obama's daughter, Malia, interned for Harvey Weinstein in 2017. On the friendship front, exercising situational ethics isn't ethics at all.

My guess is that the growing public pressure on the Clintons and Obama to say something - anything! - about Weinstein will force them to speak (or release a statement) sometime in the next 48 hours. Clinton personally headlined multiple fundraisers Weinstein helped organize during the campaign.

This is just the latest story to surface of Weinstein's behavior over the years. But, the question remains: What the heck is taking them so long?
