The Democratic senator wouldn’t commit to returning funds from Weinstein, if she had received any.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) wouldn’t commit to returning donations from disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein in an appearance on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday.
“I don’t know that I’ve received any [donations from Weinstein],” she told Chuck Todd. “I’ll certainly take a look, and then I’ll make a decision.”
Todd pointed out that Weinstein had donated to the senator about 20 years ago. “Any of that money you plan on getting rid of or not?” he asked.
“I just don’t know,” Feinstein responded. “Somebody comes to you and says, ‘Oh, they contributed to you. Are you giving back the money? You sort of look like a startled bird and say, ‘Well let me look and see.'”
“That’s the best I can do for you today,” she offered.
A New York Times report from late last week detailed decades of sexual harassment accusations against Weinstein, a movie producer and prolific Democratic donor.
