Hillary Clinton is photographed having dinner with accused rapist Harvey Weinstein several weeks after the election.
During this period, President Trump was being spied on as part of an elaborate “Obama-Gate” plot to undermine his presidency — a plot that began during the campaign and continued throughout his transition period.
Here is the Daily Mail’s report and the photo of Hillary and Harvey enjoying a meal in Harlem:
A top adviser to New York governor and 2020 presidential aspirant Andrew Cuomo represented former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein as he tried to spin his way out of a sexual assault investigation.
Weinstein stands accused of groping model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez. Her claims of assault sparked a New York Police Department investigation into Weinstein’s conduct in 2015. It was Gutierrez who wore a wire in the TriBeCa Grand hotel to capture Weinstein on tape pleading with her to come into his room for “five minutes” to watch him shower. That infamous “don’t embarrass me in the hotel” tape is presented below. It appears to show Weinstein admitting to touching Gutierrez’s breast the previous day.
The tape only came out recently, amid new harassment allegations against Weinstein by numerous Hollywood starlets. But two years ago, Weinstein managed to wiggle out of the case with no charges against him at that time. He did so, it appears, in part by playing hardball in the media.
The New York Times reported:
“The influential public relations strategist, Ken Sunshine, known for his bare-knuckled tactics, put out statements on Mr. Weinstein’s behalf. And the tabloids ran stories suggesting she was selling her story for $100,000 and had tried use the groping allegation to blackmail him. Mr. Weinstein planted stories to sow doubts about her credibility, said someone familiar with the efforts who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
“These types of matters are considered in two forums; one is the court of law, but probably the more important forum is the court of public opinion,” said Mr. Heller, who represented Ms. Battilana for a few days before being replaced by another lawyer, David Godosky. “They tried to spin an opinion in court of public opinion in a way that would break her down and make her go away.”
Mr. Sunshine said, “I categorically deny having anything to do with planting stories on anyone.’”
