Asked if she had any regrets about her “lengthy” association with Weinstein, Clinton insisted that she and her aides had no idea about the allegations against the Miramax co-founder.
“How could we have known?” Clinton said. “He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense.”
As well as helping to pull in donations for Democrats, Weinstein and his family have given more than $1.4 million in political contributions since the 1992 election cycle, according to the Associated Press.
The Weinstein family donated $46,350 to Hillary Clinton and to HILLPAC, a committee Clinton used to support other Democrats while senator.
