Clinton 'shocked' by allegations against longtime donor Weinstein

It has been radio silence from Hillary and Bill Clinton since Hollywood legend Harvey Weinstein was disgraced last week following a string of sexual misconduct allegations.

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 behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated". "Their courage and support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior".

"It's On Us" is a program Biden and former President Barack Obama began in 2014 during their time in the White House. Chastain is among the stars weighing in on the firing of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein from the company he co-founded.

Mrs Clinton was asked whether she stood by her comments made during the election campaign, when she described Trump as the most unsafe White House candidate to ever make a run for the presidency.

Patti Solis Doyle, who was Clinton's campaign manager in 2007, praised her former boss's record, but said her silence so far has been disappointing. Trump pushed back by touting similar allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

More allegations against Weinstein emerged on Tuesday, as The New Yorker reported that three women claimed he had raped them, and the Times reported a new slew of allegations from high-profile figures including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

Camerota noted that Weinstein donated more than $30,000 to the Clinton campaign.

Clinton was the beneficiary of more than $26,000 in contributions from Weinstein, a major Democratic Party donor, since her initial Senate run in 2000, according to the Federal Election Commission. "Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go", he said.

"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".
