Hillary Clinton condemns longtime Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein

Even President Donald Trump, himself the subject of numerous sexual assault allegations, commented publicly on the accusations against Weinstein.

Shortly after the statement by Clinton was published, Cillizza's article was with an apparently unimpressed headline, referencing the blandness of Clinton's statement: "It took Hillary Clinton five days to issue this statement about Harvey Weinstein".

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated", Clinton said. "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior".

"I feel sorry for the players". "Our performances this season have showed that our processes are on track". The Springbok coach was full of praise for the outstanding efforts of his forwards.

Weinstein is a longtime associate of the Clintons and a major Democratic Party donor who bundled funds for their political campaigns. Then again, as numbers obtained by the Center for Responsive Politics make somewhat clear, the $1.5 million Weinstein helped raise for the Clintons between 1990 and 2016 may have influenced the former state secretary's thinking.

Observers say Odinga has also not shown keen interest on the campaign trail as he vigorously did ahead of the August 8 polls. Last week, the IEBC told Odinga that they can not meet his demands due to tight timelines and binding legal contracts.

In a statement, Weinstein did not deny the allegations and apologized for his behavior.

The reports have put Democrats under pressure to disavow Weinstein and return or donate contributions from him to charity.

In typical Lane fashion, however, the actor fired back with a quick retort, telling Weinstein, "You can't hurt me, I don't have a film career". Weinstein was a bundler - someone who gathers donations from others into large sums - for the Obama-Biden 2012 effort. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.
