Harvey Weinstein Says Hillary Clinton Did Nothing Wrong on Benghazi

Harvey Weinstein Says Hillary Clinton Did Nothing Wrong on Benghazi

Attacks are “bulls–t,” mogul claims

Harvey Weinstein came out swinging for Hillary Clinton on Saturday during a symposium at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The Weinstein Company chief slammed Republicans in congress and on the airwaves for suggesting that Clinton behaved irresponsibly by not instituting stricter security at the American diplomatic mission in Libya. The so-called Benghazi attacks resulted in the death of  U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and another diplomat, and Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time, and other members of the Obama administration were faulted for suggesting that the violence was a spontaneous demonstration in response to an offensive YouTube video rather than a carefully planned assault.

Weinstein did not shy away from profanity to make his point.

“There's nothing to what these guys are saying. ‘Hilary Clinton didn't answer her phone and that is how Americans died,'” Weinstein said, according to media reports. “That's complete bulls–t. It sounds good, but I don't believe the guys who are saying it believe it.”

Weinstein appeared on stage with Ken Ziffren, the veteran entertainment lawyer and newly appointed L.A. film czar. He prevailed upon Ziffren to continue pushing to expand California's film and television production incentives, noting that the state is losing ground to places like New York and Louisiana that offer broader benefits.

“There's no reason for us not to shoot here, except when you do the numbers,” Weinstein said.

The state legislature is currently considering a bill that would allow productions with budgets of up to $100 million to qualify for benefits, as well as broadcast television and premium cable shows. Currently, incentives are reserved for films with budgets under $75 million and basic cable programming.

      • jakotis

        The dysfunctional brainy parrots never know Clintons and democrats sold WMD to Americans.

        “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…”
        – Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

        “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
        – President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

        “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program.”
        – President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

        “We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the stability and security of his neighbors with weapons of mass destruction.”
        – Madeline Albright, Feb 1, 1998

        “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
        – Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

        “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
        Letter to President Clinton.

    Harvey Weinstein must be an expert on Benghazi. Who knew?

    • croixscout

      Probably knows more than you…

      • bottlesflying

        You're one of the “what difference does it make?” crowd headed by Hillary Cliton.

        • croixscout

          You know nothing about me. Here is one thing – I am not foxinated…

          • Lol

            WhAt the fox say?

          • freedom

            No, You are totally screwed up.Liberal blind jerk.Your so called opinion is as good as used toilet paper.

          • croixscout

            Beats being a Koch sucker…

  • Michael Difani

    I agree….our consulates overseas are one rung below our embassies when it comes to U.S. Marine security squads and special operators. The Grand Obstructionist Partier loudmouths like right wing Rep. Issa (the car alarm mogul) of California are always vs. the president, no matter what he does. If Hilary Clinton runs, she will be pilloried and we Democrats know it. Yes, the State Dep't was underfunded at the time of the Benghazi attack, and the Republicans knew it.

    • Duke

      Yes, Comrade Difani. Liberalism is dying.. You clueless wonders had your chance and you ran everything into the ground. Liberalism doesn't work, it's all emotion and no intelligent thought. You are all propaganda artists like Weinstein. Most of you have alcohol and drug substance abuse problems, so your brain is all messed up.

      • croixscout

        How stupid are you?

        • jakotis

          Not as stupid as you!

          • croixscout

            I bet I can beat you by at least 2 college degrees…

    • wtf_u_say

      And what about the military being told to stand down? But as Bill's other half said, what does it matter?

    • Bodo Thibodeaux

      Yes it was especially underfunded by the dems for a clandestine weapons running program.

    Harvey Weinstein's Miramax is owned by the Qataris – the same people who financed Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, the 9/11 mastermind. The same people who financed the Arab Spring. The same people who ARE the Muslim Brotherhood's Executive Management. That's Harvey… Now you understand why he dismissed Benghazi.

  • bald man dave

    Who gives a s#@t what Harvey says? He doesn't know anything he is talking about, nor is he an expert or even well veersed on the Bengazi situation. At least this is in the entertainment section and not the news like they'd usually do.

    And some of you think Harvey Weinstein, (alias “scam-troll”) knows enough about Benghazi to form an intelligent, articulate, factual opinion…?
