Let’s just make this the feel good story of the day, shall we?
I mean, it’s always a boost to morale to see a powerful Jew go down in flames for his exploitation of the Goyim, and it gets even better when you think that this is one specific rat that won’t ever get to make Aliyah thanks to a confiscated passport.
That, and I don’t think the Israelis would take him – too much baggage, and too much potential heat for the Jewish Race as a whole if they were to get involved.
That’s right – Harvey Weinstein has been hung out to dry by his own, and his future is going to be filled with a very specific type of guy once all is set and done.
As expected, Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to the New York Police Department at the 1st Precinct in Tribeca this morning to face criminal charges stemming from multiple sexual assault allegations.
Facing potentially years behind bars, sources say Weinstein is likely looking at first degree and third degree rape charges and a first degree criminal sexual act charge from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
Once the most powerful producer in Hollywood, Weinstein exited the precinct house at about 8:45 AM ET in handcuffs, escorted into a waiting car. The New York Police Department issued a statement saying he had been arrested and charged with rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct for incidents involving two separate women.
“The NYPD thanks these brave survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice,” police said in the statement obtained by Deadline. “The arrest and ensuing charges are the result of a joint investigation between the NYPD and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.”
Weinstein was seen leaving the precinct in handcuffs, smiling, as he was escorted to a waiting car to be driven to court — a powerful image for the women who accused him of abuse.
Though accused by close to 80 women, the charges apparently center on three incidents within the Empire State’s statute of limitations: former Boardwalk Empire actor Paz de la Huerta has claimed that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010, and a 2004 occurrence where college student Lucia Evans said the Hollywood mogul compelled her to perform oral sex on him.
Weinstein arrived at the Lower Manhattan station house early this morning amid a throng of media and onlookers gathered at the police station, with NYPD barricades up to separate them the Oscar-wining producer as he was escorted inside. The disgraced media mogul carried three books under his right arm, including what appeared to be a biography of Elia Kazan, the director of such classic Hollywood films as On the Waterfront and A Streetcar Named Desire. He walked silently through the media phalanx as the cameras clicked and reporters shouted “Harvey!”
While in the lower Manhattan precinct, Weinstein was placed in a holding cell for about 30 minutes, sources tell us. The 66-year old sat on the floor of the cell flipping through the Kazan bio as officers filled out an online arrest report. Earlier, Weinstein had been subject to a live scan finger print, which meant it was done electronically with no ink used.
After being booked, Weinstein and lawyer Benjamin Brafman headed over to nearby criminal court for an arraignment hearing to enter a plea. At the hearing, a predetermined bail of $1 million will be set, and Weinstein’s passport will be handed over to authorities due to flight-risk concerns. As part of the process of the criminal complaint, the producer could be ordered to wear a monitoring device.
Only one major question remains – what was the title of the black book carried by Harvey?
The other two were biographies of other directors famous for the Casting Couch, but the black one doesn’t seem to have a title on its spine.
For the record, I’m just going to assume it was the Talmud.
