In 2016, Lena Dunham, the writer and actress, said she was troubled by the producer's visible presence during Mrs. Clinton's presidential run, hosting fund-raisers and appearing at campaign events.
The actress has accused the shamed film producer of wielding her name like "an assault weapon" in a string of "disturbing encounters".
Lena Dunham claims that she tried to convince Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign not to accept money from Harvey Weinstein.
The "Girls" star told the newspaper that she also warned Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton spokeswoman, about rumors surrounding Weinstein. "As to claims about a warning, that's something staff wouldn't forget", Nick Merrill, Clinton's communications director, said in a statement, adding "Only she can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him".
