Remember that annoying ‘deal me in’ catchphrase Hillary used about the ‘woman card’? When the stakes were high, she folded.
Hillary billed herself as the defender of women against a man she accused of being a dangerous predator. But we now have a claim that she was shielding the grand-daddy of MeToo himself from scrutiny — Weinstein. And he just HAPPENED to be a big financial benefactor for her campaign.
The implication being, however much she claims that she ‘loves’ women, it is NOT as much as she loves political power.
Strangely, for all the talk about him being a womanizer, we have never yet seen evidence of him having non-consensual contact with a woman. Even that ‘damning’ quote that feminists love to trot out from that Billy Bush tape had him explicitly saying, immediately before the infamous Grab ’em quote, he says something that completely changes the nature of the boast: ‘When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.’
But Hillary, she’s pure as the driven snow, right? The White Knight defender of women, isn’t she?
One of her legal cases in 1975 was to defend an accused rapist and attacked the character of the 12-year-old victim claiming she was attracted to older men.
‘It was a fascinating case, it was a very interesting case,’ Clinton says in the recording. ‘This guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old. Course he claimed that he didn’t, and all this stuff’ . . . ‘I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,’ she added with a laugh. Clinton can also be heard laughing at several points when discussing the crime lab’s accidental destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.
Hillary, pure as the driven snow, approached Juanita Broaddrick after the meeting in which Bill is said to have raped her and had an exchange Juanita perceived as a direct threat.
Hillary, pure as the driven snow, personally worked on Bill’s campaign to stamp out what she called ‘Bimbo Eruptions’
Former Bill Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos, now an anchor for ABC News, wrote in his memoir All Too Human: A Political Education that Hillary Clinton had to “savage her enemies” during the Lewinsky affair, repeating a pattern from previous scandals involving her husband’s behavior towards women.
We’re now seeing a pattern of behavior that completely undermines her official persona. And if this report is true, it gets much, much worse.
This is where Weinstein comes into the picture. His treatment of women was an open secret, yet he continued to get away with it, and nobody seemed willing or able to do anything about it.
So why didn’t they do anything to stop the abuse? Well, it turns out because people like Hillary Clinton helped Weinstein get away with it.
Here’s one example of it. In the summer of 2017, according to this new book, Farrow tried to schedule an interview with Hillary Clinton for another book he was writing about U.S. foreign policy. Hillary’s publicist, a man called Nick Merrill, warned Farrow outright that a certain “big story” that he was working on was “a concern for us.”
In other words, leave Harvey Weinstein alone. If you want to get what we’ve got. Stop it. Stop bothering Harvey Weinstein. That was the message to Farrow from Hillary Clinton.
Noah Oppenheim is still the president of NBC. Andy Lack is still the chairman, despite his own documented history of sexual indiscretions with NBC employees. Neither one has ever told the truth about the Harvey Weinstein cover-up.
Now Weinstein had been a longtime fundraiser for the Clinton family. Hillary wanted to protect him, no matter how many women he was hurting and there were quite a few apparently.
Several months later, Weinstein returned Hillary’s favor. He sent an email to an NBC executive called Deborah Turness, and he pitched a docu-series about — you guessed it — Hillary Clinton. Turness called the idea “absolutely stunning.”
But don’t be surprised. NBC News is in the tank for the Democratic Party and also in the tank for Harvey Weinstein.
When Farrow began his investigation, he may not have known this. He was still an NBC employee at the time. But he learned it when the company rejected his story on Harvey Weinstein, despite the fact he had it nailed. In the end, Farrow took the piece elsewhere and won a Pulitzer Prize with it.
Did we mention that Weinstein was a REALLY effective fundraiser for Democrat — and specifically Clintonian — causes?
The Democratic donor, who owns the Hamptons house next door to the $50,000-a-week vacation home the Clintons rented last summer, has already maxed out to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and contributed up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
His latest favor for his Hamptons pal will be hosting the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, and climate change hero Leonardo DiCaprio at his Manhattan home for a fundraiser benefitting the Hillary Victory Fund, according to the New York Post.
This is the second fundraiser Weinstein has held for Clinton this election. In October, Weinstein co-hosted a fundraiser with fashion designer Anna Wintour where attendees could get a picture with Clinton in exchange for a $2,700 donation.
That couldn’t POSSIBLY have entered into her thinking, could it?
