Gwyneth Paltrow: Harvey Weinstein Lied About Having Sex With Me To Lure Women

Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein's reach extended to journalism and politics, and he bragged that he had access to the USA president and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, among others; Lena Dunham said she told members of Hillary Clinton's campaign not to allow Weinstein to be involved because of Hollywood's "open secret".

And in a new New York Times investigation we're now learning the sheer extent of Weinstein's network of complicity, which included several people at a major talent agency, tabloid journalists, and some of his own employees who were powerless to speak up.

"I just want you to let you know that Harvey's a rapist and this is going to come out at some point", actress and writer Lena Dunham reports telling Kristina Schake, the Clinton campaign's deputy communications director, in 2016.

Dunham also says she told Adrienne Elrod, a spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton, about Weinstein.

"We were shocked when we learned what he'd done", Clinton communications director Nick Merrill told the Times "It's despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage".

Weinstein, who prominently advocated for Clinton's presidential bid by holding fundraisers and other public events, is now being investigated for multiple claims of sexual assault and rape.

If that limit is hit, trading can only continue at or within the +/- 20 per cent limit for the remainder of the trading session. The argument may be helped by two features that will be a part of the bitcoin futures: price limits and margin rates.


Dunham said that Schake promised to take the information to Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook. Weinstein even threw $10,000 towards former President Clinton's legal defense when he faced impeachment articles during the Monica Lewinksy scandal.

Magazine editor and Daily Beast founder Tina Brown also told the Times she warned a member of Clinton's inner circle in 2008 about Weinstein. "A year and a half ago, on one of the most progressive campaigns in history, this wasn't a problem", she said, referring to the allegations about Weinstein.

But two prominent women said they warned Mrs. Clinton's team.

"I was hearing that Harvey's sleaziness with women had escalated since I left Talk in 2002 and she was unwise to be so closely associated with him", Brown said. She was still meeting with Weinstein after her election loss planning with him a possible TV show about her campaign.

When Paltrow made her original allegation, she claimed she told Brad Pitt, her then-boyfriend, about the alleged encounter and he confronted Weinstein, who subsequently "screamed" at her for a long time, making her think she would be fired from Emma.
