Clinton addresses Weinstein sexual harassment allegations

In an interview published on Sunday, former Democrats Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, Britons who supported Brexit in last year's referendum on European Union (EU) membership "voted against modern Britain".

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein".

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated".

The Virginia Democrat ran alongside Clinton on the Democratic presidential ticket during the 2016 election.

The recent report in The New York Times cataloged accusations of sexual harassment against the filmmaker that spanned three decades. By Tuesday afternoon, shortly before Merrill's tweet, new investigations in the New Yorker and New York Times related more stories of more unwanted advances, including forced oral and vaginal intercourse. "I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time", he told reporters.

Speaking at UC Davis on Monday night, Hillary Clinton said climate change must be acknowledged as a cause of the wildfires burning across California.

Longtime Hillary Clinton aides have been confused by the former secretary of state's silence on the issue, questioning - in private - why she has not weighed in at all.

Weinstein and Chapman also contributed $10,000 to President Barack Obama. Weinstein was sacked Sunday from the Weinstein Co. The figures include contributions attributed to Weinstein, first wife Eve Chilton and current spouse Georgina Chapman, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

Her statement made no mention of the donations.

Through his representative, Sallie Hofmeister, Weinstein denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex". As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would donate Weinstein's $14,200 in contributions to several charities supporting women, while U.S. Sen Cory Booker, D-NJ, is giving the $7,800 that he received from Weinstein to the New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault, the Hollywood trade paper reported.
