Harvey Weinstein Probe Halted by Andrew Cuomo After $25k Donation From Weinstein’s Lawyers

Published

on

At the end of June, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, (D-NY) suspiciously halted an investigation into New York Attorney General Cy Vance Jr’s potential mishandling of 2015 sexual misconduct claims against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein only days after Weinstein’s lawyers donated $25,000 to Cuomo.

“On June 26, Cuomo’s office sent Attorney General Barbara Underwood a letter calling for a six-month pause in the investigation so that it would not hamper Vance’s prosecution of Weinstein on sexual assault charges stemming from allegations that came to light in 2017 in the New York Times and the New Yorker,” according to BuzzFeed.

According to Capital & Main, law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner sent a $25,000 donation to Cuomo dated June 20. The same law firm represents Weinstein.

The complainants allege that Weinstein’s abuse occurred in 2015, and that the Attorney General’s office mishandled their complaints, allowing Weinstein to skate.

The pretext for halting the investigation is so that it does not interfere with Weinstein’s upcoming trial for rape stemming from allegations made during the #MeToo movement according to Amy Spitalnick, a spokesperson for the attorney general’s office.

The #MeToo allegations were made well after the original complaints against Weinstein from 2015.

“Upon receiving a referral from the Governor, this spring the Attorney General’s Office commenced an inquiry into the handling of recent sexual assault investigations conducted by the Manhattan DA and the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit,” Spitalnick told BuzzFeed. “This summer, pursuant to the Governor’s office, we temporarily suspended our inquiry to avoid any interference with the District Attorney’s ongoing prosecution of Harvey Weinstein. We remain committed to conducting a comprehensive, fair, and independent review.”

But Attorney General Vance is close with Weinstein’s lawyers too.

“Attorney David Boies, the partner in the firm who oversaw Weinstein’s defense, has been near the center of the investigation into Vance’s handling of the Weinstein case from the start,” said BuzzFeed. “Months after Vance dropped the 2015 case against his then-client, Boies donated $10,000 to the Manhattan DA’s campaign fund, a contribution that fueled the calls for an investigation into Vance.”

The district attorney’s office has assured the public that the investigation into Vance’s handling of the 2015 complaints will be re-opened at the proper time.

Netflix ‘Cheer’ Star, Joe Biden Surrogate Charged With Producing Child Pornography After Federal Raid

There’s something wrong at Netflix.

Published

A Netflix star who has appeared in digital campaign events as a Joe Biden surrogate has been charged with producing child pornography, just days after federal law enforcement raided his Illinois residence on suspicion that Jerry Harris was engaging in sexually explicit messaging with minors.

Harris is known for appearing on Netflix’s Cheer documentary, which details the competitive cheerleading world. Harris had appeared with Joe Biden in a digital campaign interview with the auspices of turning out the youth vote in June.

Harris’ arrest comes just days after Netflix itself became embroiled in controversy over the publication of the film Cuties, which depicts prepubescent girls in a highly sexualized manner. Many opponents of child exploitation have cancelled their subscriptions to Netflix on account of the film.

A federal criminal complaint filed in the US District Court of Chicago alleges that the 21-year old Harris “enticed an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself.” The boy is described as being only 13 years old.

Harris is also being accused of child sexual abuse in civil lawsuits filed by two alleged victims earlier this week. The plaintiffs allege that Harris requested sexual photographs from them when they were respectively 13 and 14 years old.

Netflix quite clearly has some serious institutional and cultural issues. Joe Biden needs to immediately disavow his supporter- who he appeared with in a lengthy campaign interview- for what appears to be a pattern of child sexual abuse.
