Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has commented on sexual harassment allegations that have surfaced against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Former President Barack Obama, who has also raised campaign cash from Weinstein - and whose daughter Malia worked for Weinstein earlier this year - has yet to comment publicly.

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein", Mr. Clinton said in a post. "The behavior described by the women coming forward can not be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", Clinton said in a statement.

All of which makes the silence from Obama and the Clintons all the more stark - particularly because the trio's ties to Weinstein run deep. Weinstein was a frequent Democratic donor who gave thousands of dollars to their campaign for the White House.

Three days after the report, Weinstein was sacked by The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded.

Hillary Clinton just wrote a 469 page book about her experiences in life, the 2016 election, and her thoughts about Donald Trump. but she still has much more to say.

Google did this by downloading historical data that Twitter makes available to developers, according to the Post's sources. Congress is reportedly set to have representatives from Facebook , Twitter, and Google testify on the incidents.


In a clip from the interview, Clinton tells host Sarah Ferguson she believes Trump is the most risky president in US history and that the whole world should be concerned.

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family.

Camerota noted that Weinstein donated more than $30,000 to the Clinton campaign. Trump pushed back by touting similar allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

The move came after decades of sex harassment allegations against the producer were revealed in a New York Times report. "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like Harvey Weinstein". According to the publication, 13 women said they had been sexually harassed of assaulted by Weinstein between the 1990s and 2015.

"As long as I have known her she really has walked the walk and talked the talk on this", Solis Doyle told CNN's Poppy Harlow Tuesday. The New Yorker story also details allegations that Weinstein subjected four others to unwanted touching that could be classified assault and exposed himself to several women and masturbated in front of them.
