FBI Reportedly Investigating Harvey Weinstein

Tyler Durden's picture

The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein for alleged sex crimes, the DailyMail reported on Wednesday evening, a move that reportedly came at the behest of the DOJ which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul. The move comes amid rumors that Weinstein plans to head to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears that Weinstein could attempt to pull a "Roman Polanski" where he lands in some non-extradition country in Europe to dodge U.S. prosecution.

The FBI can both look at whether he has committed any federal crimes in the U.S. and prepare extradition proceedings if he remains in Europe.

The Mail writes that while it is unknown whether the DOJ order came directly from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the probe will likely be seen in a political light given Weinstein's friendship with Trump foe Hillary Clinton. Additionally, it is not yet known if Sessions gave the direct order or if Trump requested the investigation, however the president has previously said he wasn't surprised by the sexual harassment and assault claims made against Weinstein.

Trump said shortly after news of the shock report on Thursday: 'I've known him for years. I'm not surprised.'

Among the allegations against Weinstein, which the FBI is expected to examine, is that he forced Lucia Evans, a student who wanted to be an actress, to perform oral sex on him in New York in 2004. And since New York State has no statute of limitations on rape and criminal sexual acts - its legal term for forced oral or anal intercourse - Weinstein may be out of luck if Evans, or any other number of women who have stepped up in recent days, decides to press charges.

Ironically, even escaping to Europe may not help the scandalous former movie exec: So far five accusers have given accounts of attacks in France, while allegations of attacks in London have also surfaced – any of which could lead to charges there. Additionally, the FBI has field offices in both countries and could assist prosecutors there with their cases.

Weinstein was a big donor for Hillary Clinton, who kept silent for five days after the accusations emerged, before finally denouncing her longtime friend in a statement on Tuesday;

"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior."

She has, however, remained silent on the crucial issue of the vast amount of cash Weinstein donated directly to her and her family.  The move by the DOJ comes as it emerged the movie mogul has taken on top criminal defense lawyers Blair Berk and David Chesnoff. Berk has represented A-listers like, Mel Gibson, Johnny Depp, Britney Spears, Kiefer Sutherland, and Lindsay Lohan, while Chesnoff’s clients have included Vince Neil, Bruno Mars, Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio and the family of Michael Jackson.   The pair will join his expanding legal team following an article in the New Yorker, which alleged three women were sexually assaulted by him.

Up to 30 women have now come forward to make allegations of sexual misconduct

There is that long list of democrats and democrat donors the FBI has prosecuted...right?

I'd have DOJ do a thorough review of NY County District Attorney Cyrus Vance's files of non-prosecuted crimes.

The money wasn't flowing from him like it used to.  Hillary lost.  Million rasons, but basically, he became expendable.  Wasn't worth the dead weight of covering for his ass the last 30 years any more.

Could be.  But WHY wasn't the money flowing? Was Weinstein's business going to hell?

The Oscars will do SOMETHING goofy and stupid to "honor" the victimhood of the Hollywood bimbos.

They'll call all the bimbos on stage, have them link arms, and shake their fists at Donald Trump and his "war on women".

And they'll blubber about Harvey's "bad judgement", but then forgive him becaused he's "expressed remorse" and gone to rehab.

"He's a changed person, now".

Yeah good luck. Hillary got a pass, Huma, Corzine, 85% of insider trading Congress, NeoCons at Benghazi, Clinton Foundation, Pizzagate, Wasserscum-Schultz, Podesta, Nudelman, Soros, and the list is endless.

FBI will find that Harvey was "extremely careless", but recommend no charges because he always wiped the tip of his cum-dripped penis with a cloth or something.

Kind of odd they haven't labeled him a "white supramacist" yet?

However, when they dig up the alleged bodies buried in cement in his basement and his alleged necrophilia desires, this could get even more interesting.

Comey already leaked via a friend working as a barista at Starbucks that no reasonable prosecutor would find watching Harvey shower a chargeable offense.

pizza pizza . don't say you weren't told straight up point blank a long damn time ago..... i wonder why this abuse goes on when all these good people won't even look or listen to the accusations. fucking sad and pathetic people watching their TV night after night. not wanting or caring for the truth yet know more than you ever will.

You need to read a little more.6000+ paedo's and human traffickers arrested since Jan 20th. many

in Kommiefornia.There was a lull of a couple of months,presumably turning them on their ilk..

There's another reason TPTB are suddenly dumping that ugly mother, we will find out about

paedo habits in due course,without much doubt he was into anything he could dominate,doubt it stopped

at just women.

OK, let's assume for the sake of arguement that the scumbag Weinstein raped numerous women. Can anyone tell me the specific federal statute that was violated and why the FBI would have a compelling interest in investigating? 

Harry Lightning's picture

The FBI is involved because the activity alleged against the target of the investigation occurred in more than one State. Crossing State lines with illegal behavior makes it a Federal case in addition to a local one. 

Ajax-1's picture

Are you suggesting that scumbag Harvey Weinstein kidnapped one of the women, crossed a state line and raped her? If so, who is the victim making this specific allegation? Lastly, assuming that there is not an interstate nexus to support a charge of kidnapping, what is the specific federal statute prohibiting intrastate rape? I'll give you a hint...there isn't one. It would be a violation of state law, not federal law. The FBI is comprised of federal investigators enforcing federal law, not state law. This story is fake news.

"The FBI is involved because the activity alleged against the target of the investigation occurred in more than one State"

 

So here's a question.

 

If Trump gets the wall built, & I whip out my schlong publicly (which is caught on camera), & stream a piss of urine over into Mexico, is the FBI gonna get involved?

 

Sessions & Mueller don't seem to have much else to do. Maybe I should dress up like Boris Badinoff, wear a bear skin hat, fashion a cape out of an old hammer & sickle flag, and piss 'Strlenikov!' like I'm conducting the Red Army Choir with its music blaring in the background.

What? He got a rape blowjob across state lines? "Faster baby, before we get to Jersey... shit, too late!" Now it's an FBI matter...

I believe this is the revenge of Fox News at work. 

Liberal groups for a while have been trying to bring down the conservative network run and owned in large part by Rpert Murdoch.

Now Murdoch is getting them back for the money they have cost him by taking down one of the left's icons. 

I doubt that this is the last of this war, but it sure is one of the brightest stars to be extinguished. 

Grandad Grumps's picture

How did Harvey betray his master? I suppose that it really does not matter. He is now being shown just how powerful he really is... which is "not at all". He has always existed on borrowed power.

A lesson for the rest of them.

Evidently FBI  ought to be also investigating Dan Schneider, producer of many children's TV shows.

Dan Schneider created the shows The Amanda Show, Zoey 101, iCarly, Victorious Justice, Sam & Cat, and even Drake & Josh.

What? It's not like he said the tribe were responsible for all wars and he needs to be executed.

This fat fuck is a disgrace to humankind. The problem is, if we send him to jail, we'll only be enablers, giving him plenty of people willing to watch him take a shower.

So let me get this straight. Private handling and use of classified material on a non secured home server is something nobody would borther bringing a case against  Hilary for. But the FBI (WTF...the FBI) are all over this? Why?

Affleck tweaks a girls boob ( ok hes was a kid, still wrong but fuck?) and hes publically roasted alive.

Hilary takes millions of dollars from this creep and nothing happens?

Your screwed America.

a post on 4chan alluded to tshtf on several levels.

by his writing style, it appeared to me he was the same one that posted after the podesta email dump & everything he said materialized.

HAHAHA yeah get a "special prosecutor" to investigate all of Hollywood based just on the sex crimes that it covers up.

All we need now is to have Awan turn states evidence and the east coast liberals blow up.

Being linked to Clinton, and what self respecting criminal wouldn't be !

I think they're going to need another "Special" Prosecutor

I wonder why Harvey was outed? Whom did he piss off? Was it the hurricane Harvey that did him in or did he grab Hillary by the ball sack? So many quesitons...

kwality's picture

Remember, in addition to silencing his victims, HW also was in close communication with DNC/ HRC and advocated that they use the media to "silence" Bernie's long history as a civil rights advocate, in order to get the easily fooled low info voters to go "with her".

When his demo-dogs didn't win, HW is no longer a Big Cheese, just a Big Sleaze, and maybe EVERYONE he has fucked over is seizing the opportunity to flush him where he belongs.

This, my friends, is a holy hell example of what happens when you fall off the ladder after kicking people in the face on the way up. Good riddance.

One of his rat Tribe Member FBI buddies must of tipped him off. That's why he left the country so fast.

Yep..He's donated to public officials who oversaw incident reports on him etc etc ...The assaults are a local matter more then likely..

MuffDiver69's picture

It's common knowledge the FBI investigates incidents from media reports and you can do the search yourself. The incident with Cyrus Vance alone and the 50,000 dollar donation is easily worth a look and that's how they always get in the door. I hope Sessions did initiate it..The god damn corrupt Clinton/Obama sleaze did it for decades on decades..

Harvey Weinstein will flee to Apartheid Israel, our good friend and ally which wouldn't exist without the US Armed Forces and our financial and military materiel largesse, which will never extradite him back to the United States.

In order for the FBI to have juris-dick-tion, the crime must have crossed state lines...

Try not to imagine that...
