Former campaign manager: 'Disappointing' Clinton hasn't condemned Weinstein

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she was "shocked and appalled" by allegations of sexual harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, but didn't elaborate on whether she would return his campaign donations.

Weinstein donated to both of their presidential campaigns, as well as the Democratic Party at-large, and both remained uncharacteristically silent on the matter until Tuesday, when Clinton's office issued a statement.

"The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated", she added. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.

He has also given at least $100,001 to the Clinton Foundation.

Days after the accusations against Weinstein surfaced, Clinton's Twitter page has made no mention of the story - but she did have time to plug her children's book and a talk at Stanford University.

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family.

The former presidential candidate began her remarks by offering her sympathy for those impacted by the wildfires throughout wine country and her gratitude to the first responders.

Harvey Weinstein and Hillary Clinton.

"A New York Times report last week revealed allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein. So personally it is, it is disappointing she hasn't come out and condemned Harvey Weinstein". The New Yorker story also details allegations that Weinstein subjected four others to unwanted touching that could be classified assault and exposed himself to several women and masturbated in front of them.

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, for example, said in a CNN interview on Sunday that Democrats should give any money they received from Weinstein back. And I'm sure she'll have a word to say when the time is right for her.
