Questions About the Weinstein Affair that Democrats Don’t Want Answered

Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct scandal has implications far beyond just how it impacts him. The following questions about this sordid affair are important and need to be investigated. The answers to these questions could have a major impact on the credibility of the nation’s most prominent liberal personalities, the establishment “news” media, and the Democrat Party.
1. Who were Weinstein’s enablers? Who procured his women for him and helped pay them off or threaten them into silence?
2. How many and who in Hollywood (and elsewhere) knew about what he was doing and stayed silent? (Hint: This number most likely is well into the hundreds.) How many of those passive enablers have attacked Republicans and conservatives for a supposed “war on women”?
3. How many other powerful Hollywood men (and women?) have been engaging in the same conduct? Who are their enablers? Who is keeping silent about them? How many of those producers, agents, and enablers have attacked Republicans and conservatives for a supposed “war on women”?
4. How many people in the “news” media have known about Weinstein’s conduct and chose not to report it?
5. How many people in the “news” media currently know of other powerful men (and women?) in Hollywood who have been engaging in the same kind of conduct and have chosen not to report it?
6. What did Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama know about Weinstein’s activities, and when did they know it? Did they know it at the time they accepted donations from Weinstein? At the time they made appearances with him and praised him as a “wonderful human being“? Did Bill Clinton, an accomplished sexual harrasser in his own right, ever participate in any trysts with Weinstein? Did he ever do so while he was president?
7. How much did other Democrat leaders know when they were accepting large donations from Weinstein? How many of them waited until after his conduct was exposed to give up his donations? How many still haven’t done so? (Paging Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama….)
8. Will there be any criminal investigations and prosecutions regarding Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults and rapes, the efforts by him and his allies to bribe and blackmail the victims into silence, and any potential conspirators-after-the-fact who helped cover these matters up? If not, why not?
9. How many prosecutors have known about potentially criminal conduct by Weinstein but chose not to prosecute him? How many of those prosecutors accepted political donations from Weinsten and/or his allies? How many lawyers violated professional ethics by helping Weinstein cover up his potentially criminal conduct?
10. Will the Democrat Party, the various establishment “news” media organizations, the various Hollywood studios and agencies hold accountable anyone who is found to have known about Weinstein’s conduct and kept silent or, worse, accepted donations from him?
