Video shows Weinstein’s hands-on encounter with rape accuser

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

New Video Shows Harvey Weinstein Inappropriately Touching Rape Accuser

Per Thompson, she had set up a meeting with Weinstein in 2011, when she was 28, at his company's offices in NY, to pitch him on working with her on advertising and marketing initiatives for films. Also in June, the website the Blast published a still image, pulled from a recording, of a meeting between Thompson and Weinstein in which the producer was said to have groped her. In her jury seeking action, Thompson says that Weinstein raped her later than day in a almost hotel.

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

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. While doing so he runs his hands across her back and says "that's nice, let's keep it up". "Give it to me", he says in the video. "That's a little high".

Instead it recorded an excruciating encounter with the man who now faces criminal charges of sexual assault in a NY court, as well as scores... If he made a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me.

But Ben Brafman, a lawyer representing Weinstein, said in a statement obtained by The Associated Press that the video "demonstrates that there is nothing forceful" and shows "casual, if not awkward, flirting from both parties".

He is out on bail and has pleaded not guilty in NY to six counts allegedly committed against three women in 2004, 2006 and 2013. She told Sky News she was expecting that this would be a follow-up meeting to close the deal.

At the end of the footage, Weinstein invites Thompson for a drink a few hours later at the Tribeca Grand Hotel (now called The Roxy).

Thompson told Sky News that she did feel she ever encouraged Weinstein's advances and felt that he was playing a game of "cat and mouse" with her to test her limits and identify her vulnerabilities. Thompson says, cordially shoving Weinstein.

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

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 U.S. media outlets reported. "It was produced by Ms. Thompson to bolster her position in a civil lawsuit seeking money". She told Sky News that when she got to the hotel, Weinstein led her to his hotel room and raped her. "This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr. Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter". When she arrived, Weinstein asked her to follow him to what she thought was a conference room.

So far, over 80 women have accused the producer of sexual misconduct, assault or rape.
