The Clintons sure have a lot of unscrupulous connections between them. I guess that’s just how it goes when you’re a duo that includes a philandering, sexual-assaulting ex-president and a power-hungry woman who’s not afraid to crush anyone that stands in her way. While that’s often overlooked, unlucky for Bill and Hillary, one of their close associates is in the news for multiple accusations of abuse and rape.
Harvey Weinstein’s crimes have caused Hillary to answer for all sorts of questions, like why wasn’t something done sooner if everyone knew, and how is he any different from her own husband. Amidst of all the questions and research into Harvey’s past, some new details about his relationship with the Clintons, and the infamous Monic Lewinsky scandal, have come to light.
As reported at the Daily Mail, it seems that back in the scandal laden year of 1998, when Bill in trouble for getting busy in the Oval Office with an intern he preyed upon, Weinstein was more than happy to help the president out with his legal defense fund.
Harvey was among a several stars at the time who cut a $10,000 check to offset the costs of Clinton’s legal defense fund once it was discovered he perjured himself when he lied about his relations with Monica Lewinsky.
Other members of the liberal Hollywood elite also rendered aid to the pervert Bill. The $2.2 million in donations that Weinstein and friends like Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen, and Barbara Streisand gave Clinton, helped Bill retain his seat in the White House.
And it wasn’t like Weinstein was an innocent man at the time. He made the donations just a year after actresses Rose McGowan and Asia Argento allege he raped them in hotel rooms. They’re part of the 40 plus accusers that have come forward thus far detailing Weinstein’s sexual assaults and harassment.
Weinstein’s help with the Lewinsky scandal is just the tip of the iceberg, however. In 2000, he hosted a huge birthday bash for Hillary to raise money for her successful Senate bid in New York, and he’s been giving money to her campaigns ever since.
The ties Weinstein and other Hollywood big shots have with the Clintons run deep. They’ve been scratching each other’s backs for decades, which is why it’s so amusing watching how they react now that their benefactor has been found out. But it’s hardly surprising that such a scumbag and the Clintons are close. You know what they say, birds of a feather…
