Clinton Finally Comments on Sexual Misconduct Accusations Against Weinstein: 'Shocked and Appalled'

But when pushed further, the former campaign manager admitted Clinton's silence was antithetical to what she believed the former Democratic presidential nominee stood for.

On Tuesday morning, the New Yorker published a story by journalist Ronan Farrow, in which he spoke to 13 women, three of whom said Weinstein raped them. The statement made no mention of returning contributions from Weinstein. Bill Russo, a spokesman for the former vice president, declined to comment to CNN. Kaine called the allegations "lowlife behavior" and "unacceptable".

Clinton's upcoming book, "What Happened", went on sale September 12 and details her upset loss to Republican Donald Trump last fall.

"A New York Times report last week revealed allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein".

Doyle was asked about Clinton not condemning Weinstein, who has fundraised and donated to the former secretary of State's campaigns while appearing at an event this week.

Three days after the report, Weinstein was sacked by The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein told the newspaper that any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by him and that there was never any retaliation. Weinstein was a frequent Democratic donor who gave thousands of dollars to their campaign for the White House.

Since her electoral defeat last November, Hillary Clinton has been outspoken on a range of issues, and during her presidential campaign she went after Trump for allegations of sexual assault.

In total, both Clintons received a combined $29,832 from Weinstein. In 2013, he hosted then-President Barack Obama for a fundraiser at his New York City apartment. "I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this unbelievable day", she said.

"It's not even comparable", McDaniel said, citing the reported settlements Weinstein had come to with women who had accused him, saying Trump "didn't have eight settlements". But this appearance at Rutgers is notable as it comes on the heels of the sexual harassment allegations being made against Weinstein - a longtime Democratic Party supporter and donor.
