As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton takes part in the Women for Women International Luncheon in New York City New York U.S

When asked if the Clinton-Kaine campaign should return Weinstein's sizable donation of almost $50,000, Kaine seemed guarded and said that is in the rearview mirror.

Hillary Clinton speaks out against sexual harassment, often.

Attorneys for Weinstein did not immediately return messages Tuesday.

The former presidential candidate began her remarks by offering her sympathy for those impacted by the wildfires throughout wine country and her gratitude to the first responders.

"These allegations are low-life behavior". More than a dozen blazes in several counties killed at least 10 people and injured hundreds, destroying some 1,500 structures and torching almost 100,000 acres of land.

On Thursday, The New York Times reported Weinstein's decades of alleged sexual misconduct.


Weinstein was a big Democratic fundraiser, and gave money to both Clinton and Barack Obama (though Clinton's statement does not mention the donations or whether she will be giving them away).

Three days after the report, Weinstein was sacked by The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded. Through his representative, Sallie Hofmeister, Weinstein denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex".

The Virginia Democrat ran alongside Clinton on the Democratic presidential ticket during the 2016 election. "Where is President Obama?" As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.

"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". "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like 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".

Some Republicans have seized on the Weinstein report and his ties to the Democratic Party. "I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time", he told reporters.
