Manhattan district attorney may explore rape charges against Harvey Weinstein

Manhattan district attorney may explore rape charges against Harvey Weinstein”

Boies also signed the contract to attempt to uncover information that would block the New York Times story that ignited the Weinstein scandal.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyprus Vance plans on presenting evidence to a grand jury for rape charges against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, WNBC reported on Tuesday.

Weinstein spokesperson Sallie Hofmeister said in a statement to the New Yorker, "It is a fiction to suggest that any individuals were targeted or suppressed at any time".

De la Huerta's attorney, Aaron Fuller, also predicted last week that Weinstein was "likely to be arrested".

An IDF veteran living in Israel's coastline city of Jaffa is the spy who acted on producer and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's behalf to trick actress Rose McGawan (one among a slew of complainants) into revealing personal information with the objective of eventually derailing some of the sexual harassment and rape complaints brought forth against Weinstein.

According to the Daily Mail, Stella Penn Pechanac, who used aliases such as "Diana Filip" and 'Anna, ' worked for Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube which Weinstein used to gather sensitive information about the multiple women who accused him of assaulting them.

Urban, a 10-time CMA Award victor who has two daughters with his wife, Nicole Kidman, spoke to the Associated Press on the red carpet at Tuesday's BMI Country Music Awards in Nashville. "Whatever legalistic arguments and justifications can be made, we should have been treated better by a firm that we trusted".

Asked to comment on Weinstein's statement, Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., said, "We're not commenting on the investigation or any timeline".

Weinstein has allegedly assaulted or harassed dozens of women, a group that includes Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Rose McGowan.

Tishler said he was not familiar with all the details of the work Black Cube carried out for Weinstein. "I take responsibility for that".

A spokesman for the Weinstein Co did not respond to a request for comment.
