They knew. They all knew.
A longtime associate of the Clinton family penned a column for the Hollywood Reporter in which she claims to have been witness to four decades of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, and repeatedly warned ‘top-level Democratic operatives’ to steer clear of predator Harvey Weinstein.
Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, creator of the hit series “Designing Women” and confidante that helped President Bill Clinton craft an apology speech for his own sexual misconduct, says she warned “at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers.”
“Yes, some may call it hypocritical,” Bloodworth-Thomason said of her close relationship to the former boss of Monica Lewinsky, “but I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers.”
She added that it was “A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.”

Weinstein, a liberal Hollywood icon and Democrat donor, has been accused of being a pervert who spent decades sexually harassing and assaulting women, even being accused of rape.
Hillary Clinton claimed she would return donations from Weinstein to the tune of $1.4 million through various charitable contributions. The Clinton Foundation meanwhile, refused to return up to $250,000 provided by Weinstein.
It would seem a near-impossibility for someone as close to the Clinton family to have warned ‘top-level Democratic operatives’ about Weinstein’s behavior, but not warn the Clintons themselves.
Meaning if Bloodworth-Thomason knew, it seems a reasonable assumption that they did too.
Being as blunt as possible here, if Linda Bloodworth-Thomason knew about Weinstein, then Hillary Clinton knew.

Of course, they may have just shrugged it off, much like the Hollywood Insider herself did in addressing Bill’s own sexual misdeeds.
“One of the best friends I will ever have and a man I love dearly, former President Bill Clinton, has certainly taxed my feminist conscience, but always without diminishing my affection,” Bloodworth-Thomason gushed. “I even helped write his apology to the nation for his own sexual misconduct, was sitting next to him when he delivered it, and believe to this day it was based on something that was none of our business.”
Clinton you see, is none of our business, but Weinstein is a true predator.
A predator whose money the Democrat Party was glad to accept. Maybe it’s just the fact that money talks in Democrat circles.
The Washington Examiner reports that Weinstein would go on to host “multiple fundraisers for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton” helping to raise “$1.5 million for Democratic candidates between 1995 and 2016.”
Guess it’s easy to turn a blind eye when you see someone handing you money out of the other one.
Did Democrats know about Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior like many in Hollywood did? Tell us your opinion below!
