Liberals always have a lot to say about President Trump, Republican politicians, and conservative supporters. However, when the person in trouble is a liberal, they are incredibly quiet. The scandal of Democratic mega-donor began six days ago. Hillary Clinton, who has said a lot to say since losing the election, has only today come forward to speak about the man who is accused of sexual assault and rape.
This probably has a lot to do with the fact that he has contributed as much as over $385,000 to her and the Clinton Foundation over the years. While she has now said she is “shocked and appalled” she is also keeping one big thing to herself, all that money.
There is no real excuse that Hillary could produce that would explain her hesitancy to comment on Weinstein’s problems. Unless she wanted to be honest and admit it was about the money which we all know would never happen. She has had two public appearances since the scandal broke and neither one included even a mention of her long-time donor.
Even liberal CNN noted the exclusion of the “elephant in the room.” Anchor Erin Burnett took to Twitter to express her displeasure.
HRC spoke for 90 mins last nite, didn't mention Harvey Weinstein.She won't give women a "pass" for not voting for her, but she gave him one.

She may have issued the statement but she continues to dodge questions about all the money she received from Weinstein. At least seven Democrats and the Democratic National Committee have taken the natural (and moral) step to return the money or give it to charity. Not a peep from Hillary that she might do this, however.
For the 2016 election, Weinstein gave Clinton the maximum donation of $5,400. He also gave $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund. It would certainly be a fair question to wonder where that particular money went. He also gave between $100,000 to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
