"The behavior described by women coming forward can not be tolerated", Clinton said. "Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", the statement read.

KAINE: Any leader, any leader should condemn this.

Hillary Clinton just wrote a 469 page book about her experiences in life, the 2016 election, and her thoughts about Donald Trump. but she still has much more to say.

"It's On Us" is a program Biden and former President Barack Obama began in 2014 during their time in the White House.

Hillary Clinton, for whom Weinstein fundraised extensively during her 2016 campaign for president, remained silent on the issue for five days, but finally addressed the allegations Tuesday afternoon.

"Well, the campaign is over", Kaine replied. "You have lived with that same behavior from your husband for decades".

"I applaud the Democrats who are giving back that money", McDaniel said. "They have embraced him", McDaniel added. I'm a USA senator and I'm telling you that sexual harassment is unacceptable.

In a statement, Weinstein did not deny the allegations and apologized for his behavior.

According to his company, Weinstein has reached at least eight settlements with women accusing him of sexually harassing them.

Clinton's statement makes no mention of Weinstein's sizable donations to her own war chest.

Patti Solis Doyle, who was Clinton's campaign manager in 2007, praised her former boss's record, but said her silence so far has been disappointing.

Clinton's condemnation Tuesday came after years of links between the Clintons, Weinstein and the Democratic Party.

Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has given the three biggest names in Democratic politics more than $75,000 directly since the mid-1990s.

The Hollywood producer, 65, whose movies have received more than 300 Oscar nominations, was a prominent Democratic donor and gave $46,350 to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
