BizPac Review reports:
The Washington Post published a story in 1998 reporting Harvey Weinstein as one of 62 “donors giving the maximum $10,000.” Weinstein donated along with a number of other notable names, like Tom Hanks, Barbra Streisand, Michael Douglas, Ron Howard, Norman Lear and Steven Spielberg.
WaPo also reported that Clinton’s defense fund collected $2.2 million in its first six months, tapping into the “resentment against” the attorney that investigated Clinton as to whether he committed perjury or obstructed justice in a sexual assault lawsuit.
Weinstein has paid out settlements to at least eight women over the years, The New York Times reports. The women include his former assistant, an Italian model and an actress. Weinstein has also donated $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation, as well as a total of $75,000 to the campaigns of both Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
