A reporter detailed graphic incident with Harvey Weinstein amid sexual harassment controversy

Meryl Streep and Harvey Weinstein reportedly will team up in The Senator s Wife a film that looks at the behind-the-scenes influence wielded by the NRA to defeat a gun-control bill after Sandy Hook

However, notes The Hill, the DNC got $300,000 from Weinstein over the years, but donated just $30,000 from the last campaign cycle to political action groups, not women's groups. At Cafe Socialista, Weinstein offered Sivan a tour, which she reluctantly accepted after telling a friend to come and get her if she wasn't back in "ten minutes". Weinstein then said to Sivan, "Well, can you just stand there and shut up". There, he met a local cable news anchor, Lauren Sivan, who later rode with him, the restaurant's owner, and others to a Cuban-themed club the restaurant owner was an investor in.

"I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein", she said in a statement to ABC News.

"Not all that shocking because very similar things happened to me".

Sivan's account is in keeping with several other accusations leveled against Weinstein insofar as she says the night in question began with the two of them being joined by other people whom Weinstein eventually dismissed so that he could be alone with her.

Newsom's letter delves beyond Weinstein to the heart of the problem: the unspoken and complicit acknowledgement that Hollywood's most powerful men were leveraging their positions of power to sexually harass and abuse female employees then silence them from speaking out or taking legal action. Sivan says she was trapped by Weinstein's body and was intimidated.

Secessionists Can't Speak for All Catalans in Clash With Spain
Mr Puigdemont must return to the path of law before any negotiation could take place, it said said in a statement (in Spanish ). King Felipe made his own TV address on Tuesday night, calling Sunday's Catalan referendum illegal and undemocratic.

He then attempted to kiss her but she pulled away and told him that she had a boyfriend. "Let's just say they have an "inconsistent" relationship". Weinstein then allegedly undid his trousers and started masturbating in front of her.

But it didn't end there: Weinstein allegedly called Sivan the next day to say he'd had "a great time" and asked if she'd like to meet up with him once he was back from some travel.

Speaking to the New York Times a day prior to her interview with Stephanopoulos, Bloom had said: "The allegations if true would constitute sexual harassment". She has not interacted with the movie mogul since.

But that all ended on Saturday, after she endured days of criticism for defending the kind of behavior she has been known to attack.

As Weinstein left for an indefinite absence from work, one-third of his company's board members submitted their resignation.
