New Video Shows Harvey Weinstein Inappropriately Touching Rape Accuser
Melissa Thompson, who has previously publicly complained of abusive behaviour by Harvey Weinstein during a 2011 business meeting in NY, gave a tape of the encounter to Sky News. She said the incident happened while she was meeting with the disgraced filmmaker in his office at the Weinstein Company to pitch a video technology offered by her start-up company.
Thompson recorded the meeting as part of the demo, and in the video obtained by Sky News, it's immediately clear that something is amiss.
In the video, she can be heard telling Weinstein: "Data's so hot, right?" When she replies, "we'll see, a little bit", Weinstein says he won't.
On the video he says: "Let me have a little part of you. Can you give it to me?" "It's okay. Would you like to do it some more?"
In a lawsuit filed in June, Thompson alleged Weinstein raped her in a hotel the same day the video was shot.
When she arrived to the hotel, Thompson said, Weinstein lead her away from the lobby and into the hotel; she believed he was taking her to a conference room. Today, Thompson released video of the encounter in a report published by the UK's Sky News.
"I was trying to save face a bit ... trying to manage the situation".
"What they shared with us is that the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".
"We believe that the People's response in its entirety makes it absolutely clear that the case against Mr. Weinstein can not be successfully prosecuted", said Brafman in a statement to Deadline. "This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter".
Instead it recorded an excruciating encounter with the man who now faces criminal charges of sexual assault in a NY court, as well as scores...
Later Weinstein placed his hand on Thompson's leg and ran his hand up her skirt.
"If he would make a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me".
She toldSky News she wanted to keep the conversation professional and politely pushed back at his advances while also trying to preserve the deal. "I thought I could handle it". I worked in Wall Street before I went to business school, and I worked in an environment that was heavily male dominated...
Meantime, prosecutors in the criminal case filed papers Wednesday challenging defense claims that they withheld evidence from a grand jury that could have helped Weinstein deny the allegations, including emails proving he had a consensual relationship with one of the alleged victims.
Out on $1 million bail after having plead not guilty to the first round of indictment and having surrendered his passport earlier this summer, Weinstein is set to be back in Justice Burke's Manhattan courtroom on September 20. Instead, he brought her to a hotel room where he allegedly raped her.
