Tim Kaine: Clinton Campaign Already Spent Weinstein Donations

Liberal Guest Slams Obama and Clinton's Silence on Harvey Weinstein Allegations Lizz Winstead: "Really Disappointed" In Obama, Clinton For Not Denouncing Harvey Weinstein

Gwyneth Paltrow told The New York Times that she was sexually harassed by Weinstein.

Speaking at UC Davis on Monday night, Hillary Clinton said climate change must be acknowledged as a cause of the wildfires burning across California. The statement made no mention of returning contributions from Weinstein.

Watch Doyle's full comments below, via CNN. And I really think it's low-life behavior. It also conveniently leaves out Clinton's much-repeated pledge during her recent book tour that "I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake".

A bombshell report in The New York Times detailed decades of sexual harassment by Weinstein, and just three days after its publication, Weinstein was sacked by the company he founded.

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. Through his representative, Sallie Hofmeister, Weinstein denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex".

Kaine was asked about his former running mate Hillary Clinton's silence on Weinstein and argued that "any leader", regardless of political affiliation, should condemn his alleged behavior. At a White House event for student films in 2013, first lady Michelle Obama credited Weinstein for making the event happen and praised him as a wonderful person and a good friend.

The offices of former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden declined to comment as well.

"And as far as I'm concerned, he should not just be fired, but go to jail", she said on CNN, "because what he did was a crime".

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein".

"It's not even comparable", McDaniel said, citing the reported settlements Weinstein had come to with women who had accused him, saying Trump "didn't have eight settlements".
