Hillary Clinton Says She’ll Donate Harvey Weinstein’s Contributions

Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Wednesday that she will donate the money she received from disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein to charity. “Well, there’s no one to give it back to. What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is that they’re going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that,” Clinton said, following in the footsteps of other Democratic politicians who have pledged to give Weinstein’s contributions to charity. Clinton added that the donations will be “part of” the 10 percent of her income that she donates to charity each year, but it was unclear whether she meant that the money from Weinstein would be in addition to that 10 percent. Weinstein was a major Democratic donor, having contributed the maximum $5,400 to Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Clinton told Zakaria said she would have called him a “friend” in the past.
