DEVELOPING: Harvey Weinstein Sentenced to 23 Years in Prison, Faces More Charges in LA

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.11.20

Former Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison in a New York City courtroom Wednesday for rape and other sexual assault charges.

“A jury made up of five women and seven men found the 67-year-old movie producer guilty last month of raping aspiring actress Jessica Mann in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on TV and film production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006. Weinstein was brought into the courtroom in a wheelchair,” reports NBC New York.

Weinstein faces additional charges in Los Angeles that could bring more jail-time.

“We thank the court for imposing a sentence that puts sexual predators and abusive partners in all segments of society on notice,” District Attorney CY Vance said in a statement.

“We thank the survivors for their remarkable statements today and indescribable courage over the last two years. Harvey Weinstein deployed nothing less than an army of spies to keep them silent. But they refused to be silent, and they were heard. Their words took down a predator and put him behind bars, and gave hope to survivors of sexual violence all across the world,” he added.

BUSTED: Emails Show CLINTONS SHIELDED Weinstein for Decades

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.14.17

A bombshell report from the New York Times published Wednesday reveals what many had suspected for years; both Bill and Hillary Clinton knew about –and helped conceal- allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.

The article, titled “Weinstein’s Complicity Machine,” details the enablers surrounding the studio big-shot, including celebrities as well as prominent political figures; mainly the Clintons.

The author describes the “celebrity shield” that Weinstein had created around himself, noting “Chief among them were Bill and Hillary Clinton.”

“But two prominent women said they warned Mrs. Clinton’s team. In 2016, Lena Dunham, the writer and actress, said she was troubled by the producer’s visible presence during Mrs. Clinton’s presidential run,” the article adds.

Dunham reportedly sent an email to the Clinton campaign ahead of election day, telling staffers that “Harvey’s a rapist” and “it’s going to come out.”

“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” the actress told the campaign’s deputy communications director.
