Clinton addresses Weinstein sexual harassment allegations

Democratic Presidential Candidates Debate In Charleston South Carolina

Obama has yet to speak about the allegations against Weinstein. "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", the statement read.

But when pushed further, the former campaign manager admitted Clinton's silence was antithetical to what she believed the former Democratic presidential nominee stood for.

"It's not even comparable", McDaniel said, citing the reported settlements Weinstein had come to with women who had accused him, saying Trump "didn't have eight settlements".

At the Mondavi Center, Clinton talked about the James Comey letter to Congress that surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign that mentioned the reopening of an investigation into Clinton's use of a private e-mail server.

Many Democratic office holders were quick to repudiate disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein following a bombshell report detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment. Weinstein was later terminated from the movie production company bearing his name, The Weinstein Company.

Clinton, along with former President Obama, has faced some criticism for not speaking out against Weinstein, who donated to both of their campaigns. Already, a large number of prominent Democrats have, donating the equivalent in contributions from Weinstein to charity.

Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie told the Times in a report Tuesday that Weinstein had sexually harassed them.

There has been no comment from Mr. Obama or Mrs. Clinton, who condemned Donald Trump for boasting of sexual assault on the "Access Hollywood" tape.

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

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".

Clinton made the appearance at UC Davis as part of her cross-country tour to promote her new book, "What Happened".
