Lena Dunham Says She Warned Hillary Clinton About Harvey Weinstein

Lena Dunham tells The New York Times she warned Hillary Clinton's campaign about rumors she'd heard about Harvey Weinstein

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

The RICO suit had originally been filed in Los Angeles, but today's new filing in NY also names for the first time some of the actresses who are part of the class action.

The papers also state, "Weinstein and TWC further agreed that Weinstein's payment "constitutes a "cure" for the misconduct and no further action can be taken". That is, friends of Pecker. The allegations go back decades, with some accounts generating interest by police in Los Angeles, New York City and London. Weinstein's representatives have denied all accusations of non-consensual sex, but no charges have been filed.

We are also told a large number of other actresses are also part of the suit but have so far wished to remain anonymous.

Weinstein gave money to Bill Clinton's 1998 legal defense during his impeachment trial, and had been working on a documentary about Hillary Clinton's 2016 election loss up until his scandal broke, according to the Times.

One of those actresses was Paltrow who told the Times that she rebuffed Weinstein's advances when she was an up-and-coming young star.

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.

Weinstein had always been a generous donor to Hillary and Bill Clinton.

However, both Schake and Elrod say Dunham never mentioned rape.

Dunham said she had heard some of the stories others had heard about Weinstein. Dunham also voiced her concerns to Adrienne Elrod, the Clinton spokeswoman leading efforts with celebrity campaigners.

"I just want you to let you know that Harvey's a rapist and this is going to come out at some point", Ms. Dunham said she told Kristina Schake, the campaign's deputy communications director. "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", Lena says she told the campaign team.

Earlier, during the 2008 presidential race, Tina Brown, the magazine editor, said she cautioned a member of Mrs. Clinton's inner circle about him.

Weinstein was a significant contributor to Democratic candidates and helped fundraise for Clinton.

Dunham told the Times that when she worked with the Clinton presidential campaign a year ago, she tried to warn them about rape allegations against the mogul and that they would become public at some point.

We were shocked when we learned what he'd done.

The Clinton campaign denies ever being warned.

There are still more revelations about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct and the ways the powerful producer covered his tracks. Weinstein's escalating sleaziness did not come out during the campaign. Discussions about the project continued for months, with Clinton's lawyer exchanging emails with Weinstein about potential European buyers as recently as September 28. The New Yorker followed with another explosive story a few days later.
