DailyMail.com understands the move came at the behest of the Department of Justice, run by Donald Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul.

"Gwyneth Paltrow: The star told the New York Times that Weinstein touched her and suggested having joint massages in the bedroom before she started shooting the 1996 film Emma. She said she told her then boyfriend Brad Pitt about the incident and he confronted the mogul."

Yeah, all of these look pretty damn credible. I understand he's fleeing to Europe like Roman Polanski did after he admitted to sodomizing a thirteen year old girl. And we still haven't gotten Polanski back. So he might get away.

You know, the only thing that surprised about these accounts is that Harvey didn't also target little boys. You would think that someone that creepy would be an equal opportunity sex offender.

So Sessions will investigate Weinstein, but not Trump?

Gee, I wonder why???

#2 Because Weinsein admitted to it, but rumors about Trump are still just rumors? If the Democrats could Clinton him, they would have done so by know.

But read up on RussiaGate all you want to!

Is it not surprise the commenters could care less about the offender, his escape and more about deflection?

Liberals virtue signal, that's all they are.. hollow signalers of virtue.

"Why?"

Because they seem to have something in common as sexual predators.

Here's a thought: Maybe Weinstein can bunk with Assange?

I love you AndreaMackris (but not in a gay way). Maybe some day we can get together, go shooting, then kick back and have a few beers after cleaning our guns and discuss the Bill of Rights.

Conservative virtual signaler, please read the article:

The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein was planning on heading to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.

However the movie exec appeared to have a last minute change of heart and decided to travel to Arizona for treatment instead at The Meadows center.

Or maybe you shouldn't read it, because it will expose what a hollow signaler of virtue you are. Projecting much?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure his lawyers advised him to do that, because women in four other countries are accusing him, and now it's an international crime. Hence the FBI.

But granted, I did sort of miss that part. I sort of skipped through most of the regular Daily Mail verbiage to get the the rest of the sordid tale.

Standing for the anthem and saluting the flag is the original virtue signal.
That's all conservatives have.

Predated? Is that the date one goes on before date? A pregame of sorts?

Comments like this are why righties should pay more in taxes.

Without society to support their self-unaware, intellectually meandering selves evolution would have weeded them out long ago.

Without liberals to advance society, conservative would have kept America looking like Saudi Arabia.

Besides. Conservatives don't believe in evolution.

How many more women agreed to Weinstein's advances? Seriously. No woman is coming forward and saying Weinstein acted like a creep and that they turn had sex with him. Because I absolutely believe there were women who allowed themselves to be sexually used by Weinstein. They just will never ever admit it. It is PC to condemn Weinstein. It is not PC to admit that you actually went along with it for personal benefit.
