Clinton: The Democratic Party Would Have Called Harvey Weinstein A Friend

“Yes, I probably would have,” Clinton told CNN about whether she would consider Weinstein a friend.

Hillary Clinton said in an interview with CNN that she and other Democrats would have considered Harvey Weinstein to be a friend before reports surfaced that Weinstein had been sexually assaulting women for years.

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria asked Clinton if she would have considered the Hollywood producer a friend.

“Yes, I probably would have,” Clinton told Zakaria. “So would so many others. People in Democratic politics for a couple of decades appreciated his help and support.”

Clinton then told Zakaria that the behavior in which Weinstein engaged cannot be tolerated.
