According to a recently uncovered 1998 story in the Washington Post, Weinstein, who now faces dozens of sexual harassment allegations from numerous women, donated the maximum of $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.

The former president used the money to fight off sexual harassment allegations from Paula Jones in the midst of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. 

The Clintons and Weinstein have reportedly helped each other for decades, from movie premiers to Hillary Clinton’s presidential race.
