Steve Bannon made a lot of money working with Harvey Weinstein
Yet ANOTHER political figure has ties to Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced producer who has been accused of sexual harassment and assault.
Several Democratic politicians, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, have disowned the man after attending several of his fundraisers. Now it looks like another big name has connections to him: Steve Bannon.
The former chief strategist to President Donald Trump partnered with the Weinstein Company in 2005, according to the Associated Press. In fact, it owned a 70 percent stake in Bannon’s now-defunct Genius Products, which distributed DVDs and VHS tapes.
“We are extremely honored to be in business with the new Weinstein Company,” Bannon told investors in a call at the time, according to AP. He went on to say “the Weinsteins have the most impressive track record in the film industry.” Bannon was awarded stock options worth $1 million, and made hundreds of thousands more thanks to a consulting agreement between his Bannon Strategic Advisers and Genius Products.
Judging by these headlines …
… I’m sure Breitbart News will slam its executive chairman Steve Bannon for his Weinstein connections.
