New Video Shows Harvey Weinstein Inappropriately Touching Rape Accuser

A new video showsHarvey Weinstein inappropriately touching and making sexually suggestive comments to a woman during a business meeting. It was filmed when she was 28-years-old, in 2011 during a meeting at The Weinstein Company offices in NY where she was pitching her company to the Hollywood mogul.
In a statement to Sky News, Weinstein's lawyer Benjamin Brafman says that the video of Thompson's meeting with Weinstein "demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual if not awkward flirting from both parties".
"Data's so hot", Thompson tells Weinstein in the video.
Prosecutors argue they do not have the responsibility to turn over the emails because Weinstein could have given testimony about the alleged relationship himself, which he did not do. In addition to telling Thompson that he wants "a part of her" Weinstein is apparently out of the camera's view running his hands up her legs as she objects "that's a little high, a little high". In the video, she noticeably squirms and says "that's a little high".
"Am I allowed to flirt with you?" he is heard asking, and Thompson replies: "Um, we'll see, a little bit".
Thompson spoke to Sky News, alleging that during their meeting Weinstein put his hand under the table and under her dress. She told Sky News that when she got to the hotel, Weinstein led her to his hotel room and raped her.
In the video, Weinstein eventually agrees to use Thompson's service.
"Every time that he toed the line of being inappropriate enough where I may have said something, he could sense it and he pulled back and he changed the dynamic again", Thompson said. Anything short of that is meant to make Mr Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative.

Weinstein has been indicted on sex crime accusations involving three women in NY but not Thompson, according to the AP.
"If I would try to fight myself away from him, he would then move around to a place where he could block me in", Thompson said.
Thompson, who had previously worked on Wall Street, rejected suggestions she encouraged Weinstein's behaviour. "We don't have to live with things that are illegal and abusive".
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. Thompson had set up a meeting with Weinstein's company at their offices.
