Clinton Finally Comments on Sexual Misconduct Accusations Against Weinstein: 'Shocked and Appalled'

"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein", the spokesperson said. "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior".

The statement comes hours after her former running mate, Tim Kaine, made comments directed criticizing leaders who reamined silent on the matter.

Democrats quickly began facing pressure to return their donations from Weinstein. Weinstein was later terminated from the movie production company bearing his name, The Weinstein Company.

Doyle was asked about Clinton not condemning Weinstein, who has fundraised and donated to the former secretary of State's campaigns while appearing at an event this week.

CNN reported Tuesday that Clinton aides were "confused" by her silence and asking why she has not said anything about the allegations.

Weinstein and Chapman also contributed $10,000 to President Barack Obama. The figures include contributions attributed to Weinstein, first wife Eve Chilton and current spouse Georgina Chapman, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

An editorial from The New York Times on Friday implored the Clintons and Obama to disavow Weinstein, calling on Democrats to make sure his status as a major party donor would not prevent anyone from speaking out.

She continued, "I think that's, all you can do is live for yourself". 'Kris is so supportive and she knew this was a Kylie decision.

A high-profile donor in the Democratic Party, Weinstein has contributed more $20,000 to Clinton's campaigns since she ran for U.S. Senate in NY in 1999, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

CRP's OpenSecrets website shows Weinstein was a bundler for Obama as well, and the Hollywood giant visited the White House on several occasions during Obama's tenure.

After the "Access Hollywood" tape came out, Trump dismissed his comments as "locker room talk".

Shortly after the statement by Clinton was published, Cillizza's article was with an apparently unimpressed headline, referencing the blandness of Clinton's statement: "It took Hillary Clinton five days to issue this statement about Harvey Weinstein".

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy said in a CNN interview on Sunday that Democrats should give any money they received from Weinstein back.

Hillary Clinton just wrote a 469 page book about her experiences in life, the 2016 election, and her thoughts about Donald Trump. but she still has much more to say.
