Lisa Bloom Resigns as Harvey Weinstein Advisor

President Donald Trump on Saturday said he was "not at all surprised" by recent reports alleging that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed multiple women over a period of decades.

Davis, a lawyer who once represented President Bill Clinton, was providing Weinstein with legal and public relations counsel. "After all, she is the former Democrat presidential candidate who argued all women should be believed when making allegations of sexual harassment or assault".

His comments came after the New York Times published a bombshell report earlier this week which alleged Weinstein, whose company produced such hits as "The King's Speech" and "Django Unchained", preyed on young women hoping to break into the film industry. "Next steps will depend on Harvey's therapeutic progress, the outcome of the Board's independent investigation, and Harvey's own personal decisions".

The decision was made by The Weinstein Company's board of directors.

"They can start by endorsing her bipartisan legislation to end sexual violence on college campuses and in our military", Gillibrand senior adviser Glen Caplin said in an emailed statement.

Trump faced his own sex scandal previous year when video emerged of him using lewd language to describe groping women. The investigation has rocked the entertainment company, with employees and business partners demanding swift action by the board. She suggests Weinstein once wielded such vast power, politically, monetarily, and otherwise, he's been able to squash and evade accusations for years.

Weinstein has hired Charles J. Harder - the LA attorney who brought down Gawker after winning a $140 million verdict for Hulk Hogan after the site posted a sex tape - to go after the Times, which posted its blistering exposé on the Oscar-winning Hollywood mogul Thursday.

"I am all for people who have done wrong to evolve and improve themselves and she is too", Harth said.

Judd is quoted in The Times as saying: "I said no, a lot of ways, a lot of times, and he always came back at me with some new ask".

In an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday, host George Stephanopoulos said he was surprised to see Bloom defending Weinstein when she's taken on individuals like O'Reilly, Trump, and Bill Cosby.

As an example of what she said was Bloom's commitment to women and social-justice issues, Walsh described Bloom's reaction when Walsh gave her a copy of "Why I Am Not A Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto", a critique of mainstream feminism as toothless.
