Hillary Clinton Speaks Out on ‘Sick’ Weinstein Allegations, Says She’s Giving Donations to Charity

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Hillary Clinton tonight a day after her public statement condemning Harvey Weinstein, who donated a lot of money to her campaigns.

Clinton said she was “just sick” and “appalled” by the allegations. She admits she “probably would have” called him a friend, saying that “people in Democratic politics for a couple of decades appreciated his help and support.”

The former presidential candidate said she personally wasn’t aware of the allegations against him, but praised the “courage” of the women coming forward now and said this isn’t just about one man alone.

As for the donations Weinstein gave her, Clinton cited other Democrats giving the donations to charity and said, “Of course I will do that. I give 10 percent of my income to charity every year. This will be part of that, there’s no doubt about it.”

As CNN’s Dylan Byers noted, though, this may be insufficient:
