Harvey Weinstein Turns Himself in to Authorities … Will There Be Justice?
It was anticipated that Harvey Weinstein would turn himself in, now its official. The downfall of Harvey Weinstein, once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, just got even more real. Weinstein turned himself into authorities this morning to the New York Police Department at the First Precinct in Tribeca. More than 80 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd and Angelina Jolie. Weinstein is likely looking at first degree and third degree rape charges and a first degree criminal sexual act charge from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Weinstein has denied any wrongdoing.
Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender to authorities Friday to face sex assault charges in connection with attacks on multiple women.
The fallen Hollywood honcho is expected to be charged with preying on Lucia Evans, who told investigators that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004, and at least one other accuser, sources said.
His attorney Benjamin Brafman declined to comment Thursday.
Evans told The New Yorker she was an incoming college senior trying to break into the film business when she met Weinstein at a nightclub.
The movie mogul invited her to the Miramax office. Soon after she arrived for the daytime meeting, Evans said, Weinstein pulled her head down to his crotch.
“I said, over and over, ‘I don’t want to do this, stop, don’t,’ ” she told the magazine.
“I tried to get away, but maybe I didn’t try hard enough. I didn’t want to kick him or fight him.”
Evans said the hulking Weinstein ultimately “overpowered” her.
“I just sort of gave up,” she said.
After being booked at the Lower Manhattan precinct, Weinstein and lawyer will next head to criminal court for an arraignment hearing later today to enter a plea. At the hearing, a predetermined bail of $1 million will be set, and Weinstein’s passport will be handed over to authorities due to flight-risk concerns.
Multiple Woman Come Forward that Harvey Weinstein Sexally Harrassed, Assaulted and Raped Them (Audio Sting Tape)
For more than twenty years, Weinstein has also been trailed by rumors of sexual harassment and assault and the LEFT remained silent …
The New Yorker has a bombshell article of the disgusting and reprehensible life and times of Harvey Weinstein. As stated in the piece, “I was told by thirteen women that, between the nineteen-nineties and 2015, Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them.” The sick part about this is that it was known, not just rumored, but known by many for years and nothing was done. Because he was a darling of liberal, LEFT Hollywood, mum was the word. So the LEFT and the liberal MSM lost their minds with the Trump buss audio tape, they knew this was going on for decades with this Hollywood mogul and they remained silent.
Listen to excerpt from NYPD sting tape with Harvey Weinstein of this pathetic excuse of a human being. And the DA did not bring charges against him.
Since the establishment of the first studios a century ago, there have been few movie executives as dominant, or as domineering, as Harvey Weinstein. As the co-founder of the production-and-distribution companies Miramax and the Weinstein Company, he helped to reinvent the model for independent films, with movies such as “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” “The English Patient,” “Pulp Fiction,” “The Crying Game,” “Shakespeare in Love,” and “The King’s Speech.” Beyond Hollywood, he has exercised his influence as a prolific fund-raiser for Democratic Party candidates, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Weinstein combined a keen eye for promising scripts, directors, and actors with a bullying, even threatening, style of doing business, inspiring both fear and gratitude. His movies have earned more than three hundred Oscar nominations, and, at the annual awards ceremonies, he has been thanked more than almost anyone else in movie history, just after Steven Spielberg and right before God.
For more than twenty years, Weinstein has also been trailed by rumors of sexual harassment and assault. This has been an open secret to many in Hollywood and beyond, but previous attempts by many publications, including The New Yorker, to investigate and publish the story over the years fell short of the demands of journalistic evidence. Too few people were willing to speak, much less allow a reporter to use their names, and Weinstein and his associates used nondisclosure agreements, monetary payoffs, and legal threats to suppress these myriad stories. Asia Argento, an Italian film actress and director, told me that she did not speak out until now—Weinstein, she told me, forcibly performed oral sex on her—because she feared that Weinstein would “crush” her. “I know he has crushed a lot of people before,” Argento said. “That’s why this story—in my case, it’s twenty years old; some of them are older—has never come out.”
Last week, the New York Times, in a powerful report by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, revealed multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein, a story that led to the resignation of four members of his company’s all-male board, and to Weinstein’s firing from the company.
This crap happened and these actresses said nothing and never bothered to warn unsuspecting woman. The dirty little Hollywood secret is this crap goes on all the time.
When Gwyneth Paltrow was 22 years old, she got a role that would take her from actress to star: The film producer Harvey Weinstein hired her for the lead in the Jane Austen adaptation “Emma.” Before shooting began, he summoned her to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting that began uneventfully.
It ended with Mr. Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting they head to the bedroom for massages, she said.
“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” she said in an interview, publicly disclosing that she was sexually harassed by the man who ignited her career and later helped her win an Academy Award.
She refused his advances, she said, and confided in Brad Pitt, her boyfriend at the time. Mr. Pitt confronted Mr. Weinstein, and soon after, the producer warned her not to tell anyone else about his come-on. “I thought he was going to fire me,” she said.
SWEDEN DROPS RAPE INVESTIGATION AGAINST WIKILEAKS FOUNDER …
As reported in the NY Times, prosecutors in Sweden have dropped the rape investigation into the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange. For the past five years, Assange has taken refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London after the authorities in Stockholm opened a preliminary rape inquiry against him. Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny said in a statement, that the prosecutors office said it decided to end the investigation because “there is no reason to believe that the decision to surrender him to Sweden can be executed in the foreseeable future.”
Prosecutors in Sweden said on Friday that they would drop their investigation into Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder who sought refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London five years ago after the authorities in Stockholm opened a preliminary rape inquiry against him.
With a legal cloud hanging over him, Mr. Assange, 45, an Australian, had refused to go to Sweden for fear of being extradited to the United States, but the prosecutors’ decision does not mean that Mr. Assange is in the clear.
In Britain, he still faces a warrant for failing to appear in court, and the London police said on Friday that they would arrest Mr. Assange, who has maintained his innocence, if he tried to leave the embassy.

Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd stated there’s nothing he can do:
“We did our due diligence to try to remove it, but it’s impossible. There’s too many websites that have it, there’s too many people who have it on their device.”

“We were actually contacted by a police officer from California who saw it the night of the event,” Chief Dodd told FOX 5′s Deidra Dukes.
The police department’s been flooded with Facebook messages, emails, and phone calls from as far away as Great Britain from people who are outraged the video is being shared online and demanding the police have it taken down.
