Hillary Clinton denounces Harvey Weinstein but doesn't say she'll return campaign donations

You voted against modern Britain – Clinton slams Brexiteer

Weinstein donated to both of their presidential campaigns, as well as the Democratic Party at-large, and both remained uncharacteristically silent on the matter until Tuesday, when Clinton's office issued a statement.

The one-time presidential hopeful said that the "whole world should be concerned" by Trump, who pulled off a shock win against her in the United States election a year ago.

"The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated", she added. "Their courage and support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior".

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. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.

During her remarks, Clinton also addressed the Las Vegas shooting and called for gun control.

For anything full market value, the Giants will want to wait and see Beckham return to health and regain his game-breaking form. Craig Levitz, the chief of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine at South Nassau Communities Hospital, told Newsday on Monday.

Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette also told Farrow they suspected that Weinstein retaliated after they rejected his advances or complained about them to company representatives.

During the 2016 campaign, Weinstein held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign at his New York City apartment and another with fashion mogul Anna Wintour.

In December 2015, Hillary Clinton was asked about some of the accusations and her own assertions that victims who allege assault should be believed.

Clinton appeared at the university as part of a tour promoting her new book "What Happened", about the 2016 campaign.

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family.

China Open semi-final latest
The China Open final between Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios will be played not before 7:30pm local time, 5pm IST, 11:30am GMT. Writing for the playersvoice.com.au website, Kyrgios also called the final "a disappointing end to an otherwise good week".

Weinstein raised about $1.5 million from 1990-2016, according to data from the campaign finance-tracking Center for Responsive Politics, and was involved in fundraisers for Clinton's effort, some of which she headlined. Bill Russo, a spokesman for the former vice president, declined to comment to CNN. In the wake of the explosive New York Times report detailing allegations spanning three decades, several Democratic lawmakers who had received contributions from Weinstein - including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sens.

My guess is that the growing public pressure on the Clintons and Obama to say something - anything! - about Weinstein will force them to speak (or release a statement) sometime in the next 48 hours.

Biden has also been outspoken against alleged lewd behavior by President Donald Trump, which Trump was caught describing in the infamous "Access Hollywood" audio tape that surfaced previous year.

"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".
