Harvey Weinstein Accuser Releases Footage Of Him Groping Her

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

Melissa Thompson, who sued Weinstein in June, said the recording was made while plugging video technology for the movie mogul at his NY office.

In 2011, Thompson said she met Weinstein at the Weinstein Company office in NY to pitch her tech start-up's services.

Ms Thompson said she was under the impression it was to close the deal but instead she claims he lured her to his room and raped her.

Melissa Thompson is one of many women who have come forward to accuse now-disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and rape.

The video aired Wednesday by Sky News was recorded by Melissa Thompson when she met Weinstein at his office in 2011.

At the start of the video, Weinstein rejects an effort by Thompson to shake hands, opting instead to give her a hug while rubbing her back.

Weinstein is heard in the video saying he wants to meet her later for drinks at a nearby hotel lobby.

"If I would try to fight myself away from him, he would then move around to where he could block me in somewhere, and he's a big individual", Thompson told Sky News.

"What they shared with us is that the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".

At the end of the video, Weinstein and Thompson arrange to meet a few hours later at the Tribeca Grand in NY.

The tweets attracted widespread attention and concern - "the Internet lost its collective mind", as Woodward wrote in his book. He seems entirely convinced that he possesses all the knowledge he needs despite never having held elected office before.

She reportedly claimed in court documents that Weinstein tried unsuccessfully to force her to perform oral sex on him before he pushed her on the bed and raped her.

Prosecutors argue they do not have the responsibility to turn over the emails because Weinstein could have given testimony about the alleged relationship himself, which he did not do.

When asked if she "might have encouraged him", Thompson replied, "I don't think I purposely encouraged him".

Thompson tells Sky News that at one point in the meeting Weinstein reached his hand under the desk and put it under Thompson's skirt.

He then strokes her arm while she continues trying to discuss her business. Thompson says, cordially shoving Weinstein.

Thompson was part of a class action lawsuit against Weinstein filed in June in which she claimed the producer began to harass and fondle her, several United States media outlets reported. "We don't have to live with things that are illegal and abusive".

"I never met anyone that I couldn't handle until Harvey Weinstein", she said.

"Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative", said Benjamin Brafman.

So far, over 80 women have accused the producer of sexual misconduct, assault or rape. Weinstein denied the allegation, according to Sky News. "This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr. Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it".
