If you ever wondered why all the lefty bigwigs kept defending Bill, here's a little hint why.
Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to sex scandals – back when Bill Clinton was battling allegations he lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, Weinstein had the president’s back, and a hefty check in hand.
A recently uncovered 1998 story in The Washington Post lists the powerful producer – now accused of sexual harassment and assault by numerous women – among several Hollywood heavyweights who gave the maximum $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.
“This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it's in entertainment, politics,” Clinton said. “After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.”
The BBC's Andrew Marr responded by pointing out that Clinton has dismissed allegations made by women against her husband.
“That has all been litigated,” Clinton replied. “That was subject of a huge investigation in the late '90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past.”
Meanwhile, the litigation Clinton referenced led to a big out-of-court settlement: $850,000 to Paula Jones, who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment.
None of this is really news. Not even the double standard.
And Hillary Clinton is recycling the old Move On defense that never gets old. But there's a reason why so many Clinton associates, Anthony Weiner, Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein were tremendously creepy folks. Birds of a feather flock together. For guys like Harvey, Bill's creepiness would have been an added incentive to back the Clintons. What attracts sleaze more than sleaze?
