Lena Duham Claims She Warned Clinton Campaign About Weinstein’s Ways

Amber Randall on December 5, 2017

Actress Lena Dunham claimed she tried to warn the Clinton campaign about Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged inappropriate behavior during the 2016 presidential election, according to a Tuesday report.

Dunham, a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter, said she tried to tell Clinton campaign staffers of the numerous assault and harassment allegations against Weinstein, a Clinton donor and supporter, The New York Times reported.

Dunham alleged she had heard rumors and firsthand accounts from women who experienced inappropriate behavior from the Hollywood producer, prompting her to bring information to the campaign, according to TheNYT.

“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point. I think it’s a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it’s an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault,” Dunham said she related to Clinton campaign deputy communications director Kristina Schake.

Dunham also said she mentioned her concerns to Clinton spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod, but noticed that Weinstein was still helping Clinton campaign by hosting a fundraiser in the final weeks before the election.

Both Schake and Elrod denied receiving warnings from Dunham about Weinstein.

“We were shocked when we learned what he’d done. It’s despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage. As to claims about a warning, that’s something staff wouldn’t forget,” Nick Merrill, Clinton’s communications director, said in a statement, adding “Only she can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him.”

At least 40 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault. A representative for Weinstein has denied all accounts of nonconsensul sex.

  • Lena Duham is not to be trusted either. Her sexual proclivities seem to center on small female family members.

  • Oh! So now that subhuman pedophile Lena Dunham is claiming to have warned Hillary about Weinstein? WTF cares what Lena Dunham OR Hillary say or do anymore? They're both pervs in their own right. Both are has-been/outcasts. Disgusting to see either one of them anywhere on any media. There are just no words strong enough to describe these two repulsive people.

  • As to claims about a warning, "that’s something staff wouldn’t forget,” Nick Merrill, Clinton’s communications director, said in a statement. Really? DEMON-O-RATS are the #1, forgetters (I know it;s not a word, but applies very well) on earth. However, who would ever believe Lena about "sexual assault?" She's the one who openly admitted to sexually assaulting her younger sister

  • How could one rapist ignore another? Both Clintons are friends with Epstein, a known paedophile, and visited his island. Both are as corrupt, treasonous and criminal as they come yet they have not been charged. It merely shows that America is not safe for decent people. I'm aware of the accusations against Trump but I suspect it is mostly to divert attention.

  • What's it called? Ignorance? Refusal to acknowledge? My guess is the campaign was simply too busy campaigning with their big donors...one of whom was Harvey Weinstein himself! Of course Hillary's team was going to ignore Lena Dunham....what did Lena Dunham ever do for Hillary?
