Lena Dunham Says She Warned Hillary Clinton About Harvey Weinstein

Lena Dunham Says She Warned The Hillary Clinton Campaign About Weinstein

The actress told TheNYT that the Clinton campaign never did anything about her complaints and that Weinstein helped organize a star-studded fundraiser for Hillary Clinton weeks after she spoke with Elrod.

Those influential people include Hillary and Bill Clinton, as well as David J. Pecker, the chief executive at American Media Inc., which owns The National Enquirer.

Past and present Weinstein Company board members such as Dirk Ziff and Paul Tudor Jones are also named as defendants. That is, friends of Pecker.

In numerous alleged incidents, women said that Weinstein invited them into his hotel room under the guise of a professional meeting, but then asked them for massages or sex. The allegations go back decades, with some accounts generating interest by police in Los Angeles, New York City and London.

"Some aided his actions without realizing what he was doing", the Times said. "Nearly everyone had incentives to look the other way or remain silent".

One complainant in the new suit alleges Harvey Weinstein tried to sexually assault her when she interviewed as a nanny for his kids, even as his kids were in the next room at his CT home. Regarding Dunham's claims, Merrill retorted, "Only she can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him".

It's not clear whether allegations of his sexual activities reached the Clintons themselves, but the actress and writer Lena Dunham said she warned Hillary Clinton's deputy communications director, Kristina Schake, in 2016 that Weinstein was a rapist and that this would come out at some point.

Weinstein had always been a generous donor to Hillary and Bill Clinton. He also was an early backer of her presidential bids.

Six women have filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, seeking to represent a class of "dozens, if not hundreds" of women who say they were assaulted by the movie mogul.

Months later, Dunham says she still has "an incredible allegiance to Hillary", and does not believe the reports ever traveled to Clinton, though she remains troubled by what had happened.

Dunham said she had heard some of the stories others had heard about Weinstein. Speaking with the Times, Dunham, a vocal Clinton advocate, recalled how she felt uncomfortable with the producer's very visible support for the candidate.

"I think it's a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it's an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault", the actress said she added.

Dunham also says she warned Adrienne Elrod, a spokeswoman for Clinton who associated with celebrities during the campaign. It's despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage. As to claims about a warning, that's something staff wouldn't forget ... She was still meeting with Weinstein after her election loss planning with him a possible TV show about her campaign.

A lawyer for Weinstein declined comment.
