Lena Dunham Says She Warned Hillary Clinton's Campaign About Harvey Weinstein

06 December 2017

"To the extent AMI provided "off the record" information to Mr. Weinstein about his accusers", the company said in a statement that it was giving him information "at a time when Mr. Weinstein was denying any harassment".

Former President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton were key players in a Democratic cover-up of former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault, The New York Times detailed in an exclusive report Tuesday.

"The paperwork also states", TWC and TWC's Board of Directors knew or should have known that Weinstein was unfit or incompetent to work directly with female actresses and women in the entertainment industry and posed a particular risk of sexually harassing and assaulting them, and that this unfitness created a particular risk to Plaintiffs and the Class ... "I just want you to let you know that Harvey's a rapist and this is going to come out at some point", Dunham reportedly told Kristina Schake, the Clinton campaign's deputy communications director.

Did anyone in Clinton's campaign respond to Dunham's comments?

Merrill, directly addressing Dunham's claim, added, "Only she can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him".

Harvey Weinstein was discussing a new documentary TV show with Hillary Clinton's team the month before he was exposed as an alleged serial sexual predator-and despite her team having been warned about him-according to a new report.

Dunham also says she warned Adrienne Elrod, a spokeswoman for Clinton who associated with celebrities during the campaign.

It appears that their warnings went unheeded because Weinstein helped organize a star-packed fundraiser for Clinton weeks before the election: an evening on Broadway with Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway and others. So in March past year, Ms. Dunham, a vocal Clinton supporter, said she warned the campaign.

"This is Harvey Weinstein University, and I decide if you graduate", Rehal says he told her and the other employees to frighten them into obedience.

Ms. Dunham said that Ms. Schake seemed surprised at her warning, and that Ms. Schake said she would tell Robby Mook, the campaign manager, Ms. Dunham recalled in an interview.

A week later, the Times published its bombshell report on Weinstein's alleged misconduct.
