On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin stated the records of the Obama family and Clinton family are tarnished because they were “willfully blind” to Harvey Weinstein’s behavior. Toobin said, “You know, this was widely known, Harvey Weinstein’s inappropriate behavior with women. … I think the real question for the Clintons — I mean who cares whether Hillary Clinton gives a statement now. She’s a private citizen. the real question is, why were the Clintons and the Obamas so close to him during the campaigns, when they were important? I think this is a real blot on the records of both the Obama and the Clinton families, that they were so blind to this, willfully blind, for so long.” He added that President Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women and “admitted to sexual assault.” (h/t Mediaite) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
