His new defense is that it's all a vast right wing conspiracy

Hillary supporter Harvey Weinstein thinks a 'right wing conspiracy out to get me' is reason he has been revealed as serial sexual harasser

advising Weinstein:

Anita Dunn, a top Obama campaign staffer and former White House communications director

Lanny Davis, former special counsel to Bill Clinton

David Boies (represented Al Gore in 2000 presidential election)

Lisa Bloom (who helped bring down Bill O’Reilly)

Charles Harder (who helped Hulk Hogan fell Gawker).

**************

"it's a right wing conspiracy" yet Weinstein says:

"I've brought on therapists and I plan to take a leave of absence from my company and to deal with this issue head on."

"My journey now will be to learn about myself and conquer my demons"

exactly where does the right wing conspiracy fit in ? (probably the same place where it fit in for the Clintons)

is "right wing conspiracy" a code phrase for "truthful facts" ?

And leftist political activist Ashley Judd is just one of the many who are accusing Weinstein of past harassment. She actually told an industry rag a few years ago about sexual harassment from a studio head, but did not disclose the identity until recently.

Yeah, that "right-wing-conspiracy" crap will work wonders.

If I read it right, he is going to sue the NYT, who knew of his antics for some time, but he paid them to not report it.

"One of the most open secrets in Hollywood." The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds. Every time some lib mentions fake news about President Trump's alleged sexual harassment I'm just going to keep repeating, "Harvey Weinstein. "

Even CNN admits this is a big, big problem for the Democrat party. President Trump just keeps winning:

Same here. There are a couple of Leftists I know that claim they are open-minded, but they really aren't. In past times I thought it might open their eyes if we had conversations that allowed them information beyond The New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN. Nope - no effect whatsoever. So from now on anytime they bring up Trump's comment either to or around me I'll turn into a giant parrot and exclaim "Harvey Weinstein!" over and over.

It never ceases to amaze me all the fine upstanding wonderful people you never heard of when you don’t go to the movies.

His attorney's have interesting backgrounds. Lanny Davis defended Bill Clinton in the Lewinsky scandal. His other attorney Lisa Bloom organized the opposition against Bill O'Reilly and also Bill Cosby, so why is she defending a scumbag like Weinstein when historically she sides with the victims? Turns out he optioned her book for aTV mini-series earlier this year.

And even though for decades, he had a reputation as a predator in Hollywood, guys like Obama were more than happy to take his money and even let his daughter intern for the slimeball.

She's going to do what the DNC has done. They are taking $30K and giving it to groups that donate to dem candidates and calling it 'donating to charity':

Ashley Judd huh? Why wasn't she brave enough, during her putrid rant against Trump, to mention Harvey? Her balls not bigger than that vagina on her head?

Guess not.

^^^Yup, that's sure what she did. And she had undying love and support for the woman who could be bought by the same man who harassed her. It just can't get any better!

these right wing conspirators are very powerful (sarc)

http://deadline.com/2017/10/ha...rk-times-1202183009/

Harvey Weinstein’s self-declared indefinite leave of absence from the company he co-founded and co-chairs could become permanent. While not showing him the door yet, The Weinstein Company board announced this evening that they have retained outside lawyers and begun an independent investigation of the co-chairman following yesterday’s exhaustive New York Times report detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment and big-bucks settlements.

“The investigating lawyers will be reporting to a special committee of the board composed exclusively of independent directors,” the statement signed by Bob Weinstein and three other board members read. The statement also says that it is “essential to our Company’s culture that all women who work for it or have any dealings with it or any of our executives are treated with respect and have no experience of harassment or discrimination.”

The board controls the majority of the company, with Harvey holding about a 23% equity stake and his brother and co-chief Bob holding the same amount.

The development comes after a dramatic two-day emergency board meeting held in the wake of the New York Times exposé that detailed numerous devastating allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein. The meeting started Thursday and continued all day today.

During the volatile showdown between Harvey and the board, who were reportedly at odds over the extend of his suspension from the company, three board member resigned — billionaire publishing heir and investor Dirk Ziff; Tim Sarnoff, Deputy CEO and President of Production at Technicolor; and Marc Lasry, CEO of Avenue Capital Group and a co-owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.

Indicating a deep divide, of the nine TWC board members (eight without Harvey Weinstein), only four signed the statement — which endorsed his indefinite leave but stopped short of terminating him — Weinstein’s brother Bob, Tarak Ben Ammar, Lance Maerov and Richard Koenigsberg. In addition to the three who resigned, Paul Tudor Jones, allegedly opted not to sign the statement

“We have retained an independent and leading lawyer and firm, John Kiernan of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, to undertake a thorough and independent investigation and report to the full Board on the results of that investigation,” said the TWC statement, signed by board members Bob Weinstein, Tarak Ben Ammar, Lance Maerov and Richard Koenigsberg.

“Working with Mr. Kiernan will be his partners Matthew Fishbein, former Chief Assistant United States Attorney for both the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and Helen Cantwell, former prosecutor in the Southern District of New York and the New York County District Attorney’s Sex Crimes Unit, who have extensive experience in these kinds of investigations,” it adds.
