Harvey Weinstein used agents and journalists to carry out his abuse

Woody Allen director of the new film

Along with Dunham's warnings, Tina Brown, a well-known magazine editor, says she told a member of Clinton's team in 2008 to watch out for Weinstein and to distance the campaign from him.

The "Girls" alum told the New York Times that she told Kristina Schake, the campaign's deputy communications director, that Weinstein was a "rapist" at least a year before recent accusations arose against the producer.

"I think it's a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it's an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault", she recalled adding.

In a bombshell report, actress Lena Dunham says she told the Clinton campaign all about allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

The outlet claims that the truth began to leak out in 2015 after the New York City police questioned Weinstein about allegedly groping an Italian model, Ambra Battilana.

Weinstein, meanwhile, denies claims of non-consensual acts, and his spokeswoman disputed claims in the Times' article about inappropriate actions, as Weinstein has a different recollection from his accusers.

The report indicates that Weinstein was aware that journalists were looking to his behavior and may have tried to align himself with high-profile feminists, possibly as part of a pre-emptive damage control effort.

US Special Counsel Mueller's office has spent $3.2m since May

Paltrow worked with him again after the alleged incident and ended up scoring the Best Actress Oscar in 1999 for Shakespeare in Love, which Weinstein produced, and he allegedly cited her success while he was trying to seduce other women, telling one that accepting his advances would be "the best thing you can do for your career now".

The Clintons' relationship with Weinstein goes back decades, and they had been working on a documentary until Weinstein's scandal broke, the Times said. Pecker is also good friends with President Donald Trump, and both Weinstein and Trump were known in the tabloid industry as untouchable "F.O.P's", the Times said. It's despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage.

Did anyone in Clinton's campaign respond to Dunham's comments?

The Clinton campaign denies ever being warned.

Dunham told the Times that Schake seemed surprised, but she promised to tell Robby Mook, the campaign manager. As to claims about a warning, that's something staff wouldn't forget ...

"This is Harvey Weinstein University, and I decide if you graduate", Rehal says he told her and the other employees to frighten them into obedience. Only [Dunham] can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him. The New Yorker followed with another explosive story a few days later.
