Hillary Clinton Finally Spoke Out Against Longtime Donor Harvey Weinstein

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated", Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton says she was "shocked and appalled" by the revelations about disgraced movie titan Harvey Weinstein, who faces multiple allegations of sexual abuse and harassment from some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

She urged Hillary Clinton to speak out against Weinstein, who was sacked from the company he headed amid reports he sexually harassed women for decades.

In a statement, Weinstein did not deny the allegations and apologized for his behavior.

Warren will donate the $5,000 in contributions she received from Weinstein for her 2012 senate campaign to charity, a spokeswoman told Variety.

Days after the accusations against Weinstein surfaced, Clinton's Twitter page has made no mention of the story - but she did have time to plug her children's book and a talk at Stanford University.

In a clip from the interview, Clinton tells host Sarah Ferguson she believes Trump is the most unsafe president in US history and that the whole world should be concerned.

The offices of former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden declined to comment as well. The figures include contributions attributed to Weinstein, first wife Eve Chilton and current spouse Georgina Chapman, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

CRP's OpenSecrets website shows Weinstein was a bundler for Obama as well, and the Hollywood giant visited the White House on several occasions during Obama's tenure.

An editorial from The New York Times on Friday implored the Clintons and Obama to disavow Weinstein, calling on Democrats to make sure his status as a major party donor would not prevent anyone from speaking out.

Bill Clinton has been plagued by allegations of sexual harassment and assault throughout his own political career.

"Where's Hillary Clinton? Where's she standing on this issue?"

In a statement on Twitter on Tuesday, Clinton said she was "shocked and appalled" and that "the behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated".
