Weinstein Accuser Releases Video In Which She Was Reportedly Groped

Harvey Weinstein Accuser Releases Video of Creepy Business Meeting Before Alleged Rape

New Video Shows Harvey Weinstein Inappropriately Touching Rape Accuser

A damning footage of #MeToo villain Harvey Weinstein shows him shamelessly pursuing and groping a visibly uncomfortable woman, who alleged the media mogul raped her hours later.

The video shows Melissa Thompson, one of three women now suing Weinstein for sexual assault, pitching her tech startup to the movie mogul at The Weinstein Company offices in 2011.

In an interview with Sky News, Thompson said she believed the meeting would have been with a marketing team, but Weinstein requested the two meet alone and can be heard in the video telling off-camera staffers not to interrupt them.

While pitching her product, she appeared to make a joke about data being hot right now.

The conversation, captured on camera, sees Weinstein asking if he is "allowed to flirt" and stating that Thompson is "hot". "Let me have a little part of you", he insists.

"Now I see he's trying, in any way he can, to move me into that zone of comfortable then uncomfortable and confused, and vulnerable, and recognising that he's powerful and I'm not, and that I need this deal from him, and he has the power to give it to me". "It's okay. Would you like to do it some more?" A little bit, she tells him.

Melissa Thompson is one of the three women who filed a class-action lawsuit against Weinstein in June, accusing him of uninvited sexual conduct in various forms. Weinstein ignored it, instead grabbing the woman in a hug and rubbing her back.

Weinstein has denied any wrongdoing, and his lawyer told Sky the video had been edited to obscure "casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".

After quickly agreeing to use the technology to promote his movies, Thompson said Weinstein put his hand up her dress. Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative. "This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter".

The video was taken as part of a demo for a video platform that her start-up company was offering. "It's not bad", he says as he rubs her back.

Thompson also rejected critics who said she encouraged Weinstein's behavior.

Weinstein has been charged in NY with sexually assaulting three women. "We don't have to live with being raped when we think we're going to a business meeting".

She told Sky News Wednesday that he'd also touched her under the table. He said the most viable claim was that Weinstein abused his power to make or break acting careers to get sex. They added that secret grand jury minutes provided to the judge showed they presented evidence "fairly and in a manner that was not misleading".

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.

Several actresses and models accused Weinstein of criminal sexual assaults. Instead, he brought her to a hotel room where he allegedly raped her.
