UPDATE: Under pressure, the DNC announced that it would send a tenth of its Weinstein money to “groups that elect women,” and Clinton said she will donate an equivalent amount of her Weinstein money to charity.
The Democratic National Committee and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are not making overtures to return their donations from accused sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein has been fired by the Weinstein Company, which he started with his brother, as his entire world falls apart in Hollywood. The super-producer is the latest establishment Democrat target of left-wing progressive outrage.
A super PAC sent me details on the money not being returned:
“Weinstein has given at least $246,290 to the DNC since 1994
- Weinstein has donated at least $23,200 to the DCCC since 1993
- During her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton received at least $5,400 from Weinstein
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has been the recipient of at least $16,200 in campaign donations from Weinstein dating back to 1997
- Senator Al Franken and his PAC have gotten campaign cash from Weinstein totaling at least $19,800 since 2006″
Democratic political aspirant Ashley Judd is one of Weinstein’s accusers.
NeoCon Lincoln Project Fell for Iranian Election Interference Operation Debunked by FBI
The neocon organization Lincoln Project appears to have soundly fallen for an Iranian election interference operation revealed by the FBI on Wednesday night, having promoted a hoax that originated from a fraudulent email chain.
The FBI announced that a chain of emails that purported to intimidate Democrat voters into voting for Donald Trump in the November election originated from the Islamic Republic of Iran in what appears to be an election interference operation. The authors of the email chain, which crudely threatened Florida Democrats, identified themselves as members of the Proud Boys, a right-wing men’s fraternal organization that has become an object of hysterical accusations from progressives and establishment media.
The Lincoln Project tweeted about the hoax on Tuesday, assuring its followers that the email chain did originate from the Proud Boys even as many doubted the veracity of its source. Proud Boys leadership had announced almost immediately that there was no chance the clownish stunt would’ve been carried out by its members.
The elite Democrat-funded RINO organization, which primarily serves to enrich self-aggrandizing political consultants off the back of gullible liberal donors, immediately deleted its tweet on the matter after the FBI announced the Proud Boys email was an Iranian hoax, but the internet is forever.
Many corporate media organizations and establishment liberal journalists rushed to believe that the crude and amateurish email chain was truly from the Proud Boys, declining to question as to why the group would openly admit to an election felony in a mass email chain.
Proud Boys sending emails threatening Democrats in Florida:
“We are in possession of all your information You are currently registered as a Democrat …You will vote for Trump on Election Day or we will come after you.”https://t.co/Di2lCBMqQf

The entire “election interference” narrative is dubious at most, and foolish at worst. Russian and Iranian internet trolls are not influencing the votes of American citizens through Nigerian-prince style emails and poorly animated Facebook memes.
