  • Harvey Weinstein’s Lost Appeal

    The American Conservative ^ | 14 June 2022 | Matthew Schmitz
    Not realizing what lay ahead, Weinstein boasted of his support for the forces that were about to devour him. Yet the initial appellate body’s ruling was far from a foregone conclusion. During oral argument in December, that same body expressed grave doubts about whether Weinstein had received a fair trial. One issue concerned Juror 11, a Harvard-educated novelist named Amanda Brainerd. During voir dire, she denied that her debut novel, scheduled to be released a few months after the trial, concerned “predatory older men.” This was a transparent lie, but Brainerd was allowed to remain on the jury. When the...

    Disgraced Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein has been caught with contraband in jail, accoridng to reports. Weinstein is currently being held in L.A. County jail as he awaits trial for rape. He was caught with contraband Milk Duds in November, prompting a reprimand from L.A. County jail guards, according to prisoner records.

Weinstein claimed to the guards that he had brought the Milk Duds with him when he was extradited from New York last July. The...

    A convicted felon accused by the US government of supporting “the cause of violent jihad” — and promoting 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden — donated to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign and a host of progressive Democrats following his release from prison, records show. Emadeddin Muntasser, 57, and two of his associates were convicted in January 2008 on counts of conspiring to defraud the United States government, lying to the FBI and engaging in a scheme to conceal evidence. The charges stemmed from their operation of an Islamic charity that acted as a front to finance Islamic jihad abroad and lying...

    Jackie Mason weighs in on arguably the biggest scandal in Hollywood history, the Harvey Weinstein saga… Jackie says he’s not sure what the outrage is all about, because we’ve seen this kind of thing before. “What did he do? Someone would think that he killed more people in an hour than was ever destroyed in the whole universe!” Jackie says. “It turned out that he did what Bill Clinton did, and made Bill Clinton the most popular man in America!” “Bill Clinton became a sensation all over the world, and Weinstein is wiped out in three days.

    A court livestream captured the moment when convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein learned that he will be extradited from a New York prison to Los Angeles to stand another trial on multiple sexual assault charges. The 69-year-old disgraced film mogul buried his head into his hands soon after an Erie County judge made the ruling Tuesday, as seen on a court livestream. Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year sentence at the upstate New York Wende Correctional Facility on convictions of third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act.

    Rose McGowan says the Democratic Party is just as much of a cult as the one she was raised in. Growing up with the Children of God “gave me the ability to see the control and the propaganda machine, especially in the U.S., for what it is and how it harms people,” the actor and activist said Monday on Fox News. The “Brave” author called that ability a “superpower” that allowed her to see that the political left could harm people just as much as the right, if they ignore other aspects of reality. She said she no longer considered...

    The Cuomo administration has hired a high-profile defense attorney who has counted Woody Allen and Harvey Weinstein among his clients to represent the Executive Chamber as federal investigators probe the state’s handling of nursing homes during the pandemic.

McGowan took to Twitter on Wednesday to call out Harris for accepting donations from Weinstein during her time as attorney general of California. “Did you return the money Weinstein gave you?” McGowan tweeted. “How many predators bankroll you?” Did you return the money Weinstein gave you? @SenKamalaHarris How many predators bankroll you? https://t.co/vQmcCllRDB — rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) August 12, 2020...

    Actress Ashley Judd alleges that Harvey Weinstein tried to make her watch him shower and give him a massage at a Beverly Hills hotel in the mid ‘90s, and on Wednesday, a federal appeals court ruled that Judd can sue the disgraced former producer under a California sexual harassment law. The sexual harassment portion of Judd’s lawsuit, filed in 2018 and put on hold in the midst of Weinstein’s criminal trial, was initially dismissed by a judge in a lower court because Weinstein was not technically her employer at the time. However, because Weinstein held such a position of power...

    New York State Attorney General Letitia James signed off on a Harvey Weinstein settlement deal that included terms she supposedly promised victims' attorney wouldn't be included. The settlement deal that James approved was negotiated by lawyer Elizabeth Fegan, acting on behalf of multiple Weinstein accusers and is now off the table after it was rejected by Manhattan Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein on July 14. In his decision, Hellerstein called the deal 'obnoxious' and said that Fegan 'was wasting (her) time.'

    Some people might burn a little sage to clear out bad vibes. Southampton restaurant owner Zach Erdem busts out a sledgehammer, axe, and giant bottle of lighter fluid. Erdem, the owner of 75 Main in Southampton, New York, was troubled by the lingering “bad energy” at a VIP table at his establishment that had been frequented by not one, but two, famous convicted creeps: Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein. The table, a high-top designed to seat six, was such a favorite dining spot for Epstein that he once paid another party’s $1,500 bill just to get them to clear out....

    Epstein suffered a minor setback in 2008 when local police from Palm Beach, Florida caught him abusing a 14 year-old girl at a massage parlor. The FBI swooped in for the rescue, offering Epstein a sweetheart plea deal which allowed him to serve less than 13 months without ratting out his clientele and with substantial work-release. Epstein continued his trafficking ring for years to come until President Trump managed to confirm William Barr, a seasoned prosecutor willing to attack privileged criminals, as attorney general. Barr arrested Epstein after declaring Epstein’s FBI deal to be illegal. Seeing the writing on the...

    Harvey Weinstein's two ex-wives went to court in April and successfully convinced judges to freeze nearly $6 million of his assets, according to court records reviewed by ABC News this week and three sources close to the disgraced Hollywood producer. The rest of his estate is tied up in bankruptcy and other civil proceedings, multiple sources familiar with the situation confirmed to ABC News. Sources close to Weinstein claimed that the asset freeze has complicated his efforts to appeal his New York conviction and mount a strong defense ahead of his L.A. trial. "He doesn't have the money to file...
