The New York Times is out with a new bombshell piece on Harvey Weinstein with this delicious revelation: Lena Dunham and Tina Brown reportedly warned Hillary Clinton and the campaign that Harvey Weinstein was a “rapist”, yet Hillary persisted in cashing his checks anyway:

Not only that, but the Clintons reportedly were in talks with Weinstein after the election to discuss a “possible campaign documentary”:
Among the revelations in the new @nytimes piece on Weinstein: @lenadunham says she tried to warn the Clinton campaign about Weinstein. Report also says the Clintons had dinner at Rao's with Weinstein/Boies days after election defeat to discuss possible campaign documentary.

- 'Hell of a take'! Water main break leaves thousands in East Harlem without running water and NYT editorial board's Mara Gay knows exactly who's to blame
- British tea company is caught in a political firestorm without so much as making a comment - On the positive side, not just the US that is politically hysterical!
Keep in mind, this means that Dunham didn’t do anything either:
.@lenadunham warned @HillaryClinton in private because she was worried it would hurt her politically. Otherwise she kept quiet and allowed more women to be assaulted and maybe worse. https://t.co/sNH1HHjJRR

And neither Hillary Clinton nor Dunham, who hosted Malia Obama for an internship on the set of “Girls” in the summer of 2015, warned the Obamas about Weinstein ahead of Malia’s internship with him in 2017:
Why the fuck didn’t the Clintons warn the Obamas when their daughter interned for him?! https://t.co/B0HzDw6nsd

Or maybe Dunham is lying about warning Hillary:
Do we have any reason to believe Lena Dunham's claims in this story and not that she's making stuff up to clear her name after her bungled defense of the Girls writer? https://t.co/7O1kYTGt5w

Hillary communications director Nick Merrill denied Dunham’s claim, saying “Only she can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him”:
Not only did the Clinton campaign flatly deny Lena Dunham and Tina Brown warned them about Harvey Weinstein, Clinton aides also took a swipe at Dunham https://t.co/9wFQyZei3d pic.twitter.com/CXrprVSLu3

So, one of them is lying.
