Bill And Hillary Were Weinstein's 'Celebrity Shields'

Lena Dunham tells the Times she warned the Clinton campaign to distance itself from Weinstein in March 2016.

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", Ms. Dunham said she told Kristina Schake, the campaign's deputy communications director.

Dunham said she also notified Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton spokesperson who was in charge of collaborating with celebrity campaigners.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by more than 100 women.

Both the phones will look identical, and will only differ in the display size with the Redmi 5 Plus being the larger of the two. Smartphone manufacturing major Xiaomi today launched the "Redmi 5A" in the city on the eve of the nationwide online sales.

But the article also details Weinstein's long-running association with Bill and Hillary Clinton, for whom he raised funds and donated cash. In trying to coerce other women to have sex with him, he used Paltrow's Academy Award-winning "First Lady of Miramax" prestige as proof to that he could advance the careers of women who pleased him, she told the Times.

He is now under investigation by NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and Beverly Hills Police.

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.

Tina Brown, the veteran journalist and publisher, also said she warned Clinton's team during the 2008 presidential race, saying it was unwise for the candidate to associate with Weinstein.

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

Weeks before Election Day, the producer helped organize a star-packed fund-raiser: an evening on Broadway with Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway and others.

Clinton's campaign claimed they were "shocked" by the allegations and that the campaign's staff "wouldn't forget" such a warning. It's despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage.

"We were shocked when we learned what he'd done", Nick Merrill, Clinton's communications director, told the Times.

Dunham's warning was verbal, the Times reported.

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