Video shows Harvey Weinstein appearing to fondle businesswoman before alleged rape

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

His eyes became dark. I constantly felt trapped, no matter where I turned.

In the footage obtained by Sky News, Weinstein hugs and makes sexually suggestive comments to 28-year-old Melissa Thompson during the meeting in 2011.

Throughout the meeting, Thompson is clearly trying to stick to her pitch even as Weinstein is running his hands on her arms.

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.

It was at this later meeting that Thompson alleges she was raped by the Hollywood executive. "Let's keep it up".

He also touches her shoulder as they sit side by side in front of the recording laptop computer.

He then asked her if he could flirt with her and she replied: "Ummm we'll see, a little bit".

At one point he asks her: "Let me have a little part of you. It's okay, would you like to do it some more?"

In the video, you can only see from the waist up, but you can see that Thompson looks visibly uncomfortable and says, "That's a little high". At first I was kind of trying to manage the situation. "And that I need this deal from him and he has the power to give it to me".

Concept Video Envisions iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
For example, Xiaomi recently launched the Redmi 6A at a starting price of Rs 5,999 and the device has Dual 4G support. According to the report , the iPhone XS with 5.8-inch screen will be priced $1079, which is roughly around Rs 78,000.

Thompson has previously described Weinstein's behaviour as distracting and has recounted how struggled to stay "on script" during the pitch. Instead, he brought her to a hotel room where he allegedly raped her.

Only portions of the video were aired on Sky.

Once in the room, he raped her.

The video shows him rejecting Thompson's offer of a handshake. "I thought I could handle it".

The meeting goes on like that from there. "Brafman says, ". 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".

"Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative", said Benjamin Brafman. Thompson is a major player in the class action lawsuit against the fallen producer.

Claiming that the video tried to malign Weinstein for financial gain, Barfman said facts mattered.

Thompson is one of more than 70 women, primarily from young actresses and women employed in the film industry, who has accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including harassment and rape. "But I hate feeling like a booty call", according to a defense motion to dismiss the case.

"Defendant moves to dismiss the indictment or counts thereof on various grounds of alleged defect or deficiency in the presentation of the matter to the grand jury", said Cyrus Vance Jr's office on Wednesday in a response to a sprawling and politically charged August 3 motion to dismiss from Weinstein's primary attorney Ben Brafman.
