BILL CLINTON SAID WHAT?
As reported at the NTK Network, in an interview with the PBS NewsHour former president Bill Clinton chimed in on the #MeToo movement and made some shocking, and strikingly tone-deaf, comments about sexual harassment and assault, including his opinion that “what you can do to someone against their will” has changed.” HUH? No Mr. President, it was never considered acceptable to sexually harass, assault, or break into the presidential humidor. The problem was that everyone gave you a pass on all of your actions from your days in Arkansas to be President. Even today the #MeToo movement has not gone after you for your actions. Is the Clinton being tone deaf or did the MSM create the silence?
President Bill Clinton’s new interview with PBS NewsHour, which aired last week, featured some shocking, and strikingly tone-deaf, comments from the former president about sexual harassment and assault, including his opinion that “what you can do to someone against their will” has changed.
Clinton’s comments seem to suggest that he believes there was a time in which doing anything against someone’s will was acceptable or normal.
Clinton also defended ousted Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who resigned from the U.S. Senate amid sexual harassment allegations. Clinton said, as part of his comments on Franken, that “maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person.”
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.

So Much for Credibility … Beverly Young Nelson, Roy Moore Accuser Now Says She Added Notes Below Moore’s Yearbook Signature
HMM, WONDER WHY SHE DIDN’T ADMIT THIS WHILE MAKING HER FIRST ACCUSATION … ROY MOORE ACCUSER’S CREDIBILITY IS SHREDDED.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … Beverly Young Nelson, a woman who has accused Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual misconduct and claims she is sickened by Moore’s lies now says she made her own notes below a yearbook signature she claims was made by Moore. WHAT?!? Who is the liar? So first Nelson says Moore signed the year book and used it as proof that she knew Moore, now says she made additions to the year book, so called notes. Why in the hell would she have added notes? A better question is why she didn’t admit that when she first made the accusations against Moore and why her attorney, Gloria Allred, didn’t do the same. During the interview with ABC News Nelson did not clarify what notes she made in the yearbook or when she made them. Why not. wouldn’t that have been easy to do and a rather easy follow up question by ABC? Unless you don’t want to know. Roy Moore tweeted Friday, “Now she herself admits to lying.”
So just how much did she alter in the year book and why? Maybe this woman needs a lie detector test? And why didn’t she state this at the outset? Because she never thought anyone would question her accusations, that’s why. The “DA” was not signed by Moore, he was not the DA at the time this was supposed to have taken place. Those were the initials of his assistant when they signed his signature for Moore. But how would Beverly Young Nelson have ever known that? The answer is, she wouldn’t have when she conveniently added that to her year book. What a crock.
A woman who has accused Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual misconduct says she made her own notes below a yearbook signature she claims was made by Moore.
Beverly Young Nelson, who has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her decades ago when she was 16 years old, told ABC News in a Friday interview that she made notes underneath Moore’s alleged yearbook signature, but defended the veracity of the message itself.
“Beverly, he signed your yearbook?” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas asked.
“He did sign it,” Nelson replied.
“And you made some notes underneath?” Llamas followed up.
“Yes,” she answered.
When Nelson accused Moore of sexual assaulting her after offering her a ride home from work, she produced a high school yearbook she says was signed by Moore as proof that she knew him at the time.
More from Patterico’s Pontifications of the accuser’s attorney Gloria Allred trying to spin her client’s lies.
Take a good listen to how accuser’s attorney Gloria Allred is answering the questions as to whether Judge Roy Moore signed the year book. She never says yes she did. Yes she saw him sign it. Sorry, this is BS. We all know now what the “DA” means. It has nothing to do with the title of District Attorney.
Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) Will Resign Today Amid Multiple Sexual Harassment Allegations … Franken Says “Not Accurate.”
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST, FRANKEN IS GONE NO MATTER WHAT HE TWEETED …
According to MRC News, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) will resign today following multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault. Franken claims that there has been no final decision. However, today at a planned press conference it is all but certain that he will announce his resignation from the U.S. Senate. More than 30 Democrat senators have called for Franken to step down. Female Democrats Sens. Kamala Harris (CA), Claire McCaskill (MO), Patty Murray (WA), Mazie Hirono (HA), Tammy Baldwin (WI.) and Maggie Hassan (NH) each quickly followed Gillibrand (NY) in saying Franken should resign. Democrats are ready to eat one of their own as it is being filled with another Democrat and gives them two years to win back a seat that Franken would never have with these many scandals. His departure would require Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, to name a successor who would fill the final two years of Franken’s term. The Senate seat would be up for reelection in 2018.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand On Senator Al Franken: ‘Enough Is Enough’
A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.
The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.
MPR News agreed to withhold the official’s name because the official wanted to give Franken the chance to talk about his decision in his own words.
Franken faced a cascade of calls Wednesday from fellow Democrats and other political allies to leave office in response to multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
After MPR News reported the planned resignation, a tweet from Franken’s official account said it was “not accurate.”
“No final decision has been made and the senator is still talking with his family,” the tweet read.
