'You Weren't Shocked Or Appalled' - Juanita Broaddrick Slams Hillary's Weinstein Response

You voted against modern Britain – Clinton slams Brexiteer As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein", Clinton said in the statement.

"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated", Clinton said. "Their courage and support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior".

An editorial from The New York Times on Friday implored the Clintons and Obama to disavow Weinstein, calling on Democrats to make sure his status as a major party donor would not prevent anyone from speaking out. It also conveniently leaves out Clinton's much-repeated pledge during her recent book tour that "I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake". During a roughly 90-minute speech Monday night, Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, did not address the controversy.

Many Democratic office holders were quick to repudiate disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein following a bombshell report detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment.

At the Mondavi Center, Clinton talked about the James Comey letter to Congress that surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign that mentioned the reopening of an investigation into Clinton's use of a private e-mail server.

Despite Clinton's brief response to the matter, and the all-too-obvious meanings contained therein, many are questioning why it took her five days to say anything.

Biden's resurgence of the "It's On Us" campaign comes as the Trump administration has formally rescinded Obama-era guidance on how schools should handle sexual assault under Title IX federal law. So personally it is, it is disappointing that she hasn't come out and condemned Harvey Weinstein.

Last Thursday, a New York Times report detailed multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein.

The New Yorker reported Tuesday that three women accused Weinstein of rape.

What's remarkable about that silence is that Weinstein isn't, really, denying the allegations.

Several Democrats announced their intention to return donations received from Weinstein or donate them to charity in the wake of the Times report.

Doyle said what Weinstein did was "repulsive, diabolical, awful". "Where is President Obama?"
