A new book claims that disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein had a much closer relationship to the corrupt Clintons than previously known, with Weinstein allegedly giving then-President Bill Clinton advice on how to navigate the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Ken Auletta’s Hollywood Ending: Harvey Weinstein and the Culture of Silence recounts the rise and fall of the movie mogul who is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for rape and sexual assault.
The book alleges that Weinstein was so close to Bill Clinton that he spent a weekend at Camp David and even gave the president advice about how to handle the Lewinsky scandal. Weinstein claimed to be a “shoulder’ for Clinton to lean on in 1997 as they vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard during the scandal.
Weinstein had extensive experience “being in the doghouse” with his own extramarital affairs and gave his advice to Clinton on how to deal with Hillary.
“Over the years when Hillary Clinton’s aides were reportedly warned of Harvey’s abusive ways, particularly with women, those warnings had no obvious effect on the Clintons’ fealty towards Harvey,” the book states.
No surprise there.
