Actress Rose McGowan, who accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 1997 in Utah, criticized former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for protecting the former Hollywood movie producer under investigation for raping many women.
“I knew Hillary Clinton’s people were protecting the Monster. I can’t believe I used to support her. I guess predators are her style,” she wrote in one of her tweets.
She then referred to Bill Clinton’s victims in another message.
“Hillary Clinton, did you have any concern for your husband’s victims? What about HW victims? No? Didn’t think so.”
Journalist Ronan Farrow, 31, said Hillary Clinton pressured him to stop tracking down the sexual assaults of former film producer Harvey Weinstein, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Similarly, Hillary Clinton’s office said they were uncomfortable with Farrow investigating one of their old friends and top Democratic donors.
Hillary Clinton had ignored in 2016 the multiple accusations of alleged misconduct and sexual abuse against the Hollywood tycoon, who organized fundraising events for the then presidential candidate’s campaign.
Democrats and Clinton have been Weinstein’s main beneficiaries, with $200,000 for the party’s Senate campaign accounts, $23,200 for its House campaign committee, and $46,350 for Hillary Clinton and HILLPAC, a committee Clinton used to support other Democrats while she was a senator, according to AP.
More than 75 women have accused Weinstein of sexual abuse or harassment.
Several actresses and models reported criminal cases, including “The Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra, who said she was raped in a New York apartment in 1992, and Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe, who said she was attacked in a London hotel in 2008.
Weinstein’s rape trial is scheduled for January. The charges could carry sentences of up to life imprisonment.
