Hillary Clinton Reacts To Harvey Weinstein's Guilty Verdict: 'It Was Time for An Accounting'

Hillary Clinton is sharing her thoughts on Harvey Weinstein‘s guilty verdict.

“The jury’s verdict [in the Weinstein trial] really speaks for itself,” the former US Secretary of State and First Lady expressed (via Variety) while attending the photo call and press conference for her docu-series Hillary held during the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday (February 25).

Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of committing a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. The charges and verdict come almost two years after the former producer was accused of sexual harassment, assault or rape.

“It is obviously something that people have looked at and followed, because it was time for an accounting and the jury clearly found that,” Hillary said at the Berlin Film Festival.

When asked if the Weinstein verdict will cause politicians to think more carefully about the donations they accept from senior figures in the entertainment industry, Hillary said she doesn’t think it will “chill” the donations process.

“He contributed to every Democrat’s campaign — he contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign, John Kerry’s campaign, Al Gore’s campaign, everyone’s campaign,” she said. “I don’t know whether that should chill anyone else from contributing to political campaigns but it should certainly end the kind of behavior for which he was convicted for.”
