Clinton: We Made a Person Who Committed Sexual Assault President


Hillary

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton discussed the culture of sexual assault following a myriad of new sexual harassment and assault allegations against Hollywood film producer and longtime Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein.

INTERVIEW UK CHANNEL 4

In an interview with the U.K.’s Channel 4 News on Saturday, Clinton said:

“Look, we just elected someone who admitted sexual assault to the presidency. So there’s a lot of other issues that are swirling around these kinds of behaviors that need to be addressed,” Clinton said when asked if she had heard rumors of Weinstein’s behavior before the bombshell reports.

BRIGHT SPOTLIGHT

“I think it’s important that we stay focused, and shine a bright spotlight, and try to get people to understand how damaging this is,” she continued.

“The women coming forward is the only way that that story will be told,” she said.

CLINTON’S COMMENTS

Clinton’s comments come as accusations against Weinstein going back decades continue to surface from major Hollywood actresses including Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale.

BACKLASH DURING CAMPAIGN

Trump faced major backlash during the presidential campaign when he was heard bragging about groping and kissing women on a leaked “Access Hollywood” tape from 2005.

NUMEROUS ASSAULTS

Numerous sexual assault allegations surfaced against Trump during the campaign.

CONDEMNING WEINSTEIN

Clinton, along with the Obamas, came under scrutiny after they issued statements condemning Weinstein’s behavior five days after the scandal broke.

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

Clinton announced on Tuesday that she would be donating the money Weinstein contributed to her campaign.
