While Hillary Clinton managed for several days to dodge questions from the media about the return of Harvey Weinstein donations, on Sunday, a spokesman for the Clinton Foundation announced that $250,000 of donations from the movie mogul will not be returned.
The spokesman alleges that somewhere between $100,000 and $250,000 in Harvey Weinstein donations has already been spent by the Clinton Foundation on the “organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes.”

The move to keep the money was expected following tweets from the foundation’s spokesman Craig Minassian.
“Suggesting @ClintonFdn return funds from our 330,000+ donors ignores the fact that donations have been used to help people across the world,” Minassian wrote on Twitter.

The calls to return Weinstein’s money were prompted after multiple actresses have come forward and accused the Hollywood executive of sexual assault and rape, forcing numerous politicians and organization to grapple with the dilemma.
Dozens Democratic Party politicians – including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sen. Sen. Al Franken, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker – have pledged to donate their Weinstein’s contributions to charities focused on women’s rights[…]
About the return of Harvey Weinstein donations by Progressives bureaucrats…
The DNC says that it will return $30,000 of $300,000 in political donations from Harvey Weinstein to three women’s organizations, i.e., “EMILY’s List, which supports women candidates that support abortion rights, Emerge America, which recruits and trains Democratic women for office, and Higher Heights, which supports black women running for office.”
In other words, the DNC is returning nothing.

…The decision was made “because what we need is more women in power, not men like [President] Trump who continue to show us that they lack respect for more than half of America,” DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa explained in a Friday statement to CBS.
“The allegations in the New York Times report are deeply troubling. The Democratic party condemns all forms of sexual harassment and assault,” Hinojosa added….
To funnel Harvey Weinstein donations, even a mere 10% to organizations that donate to and work hand in hand with Progressive bureaucrats is a new low even for the left. That 10% will find its way back into DNC coffers.
Also, worth noting that the amount of cash the DNC is laundering to avoid the Weinstein stank is only 10% of the total he has donated.

In the meantime, twitter is blowing up over the Clinton Foundation.

Remember that time it took Hillary Clinton 5 days to sort of denounce a sexual predator AND she kept Harvey Weinstein’s $250,000?

Why would the Clinton foundation give back Harvey Weinstein’s $250,000 donation?!
Chelsea Clinton might need it for a wedding or something!
