No wonder Hillary Clinton doesn’t want to return any of Harvey Weinstein’s money.
Turns out, the cozy relationship between the two pals was even cozier than originally thought, as evidenced by the recent release of a series of flattering emails from her stint as Secretary of State, thanks to that ever-helpful Freedom of Information Act.
The first letter, from August 2010 written specifically to Clinton’s assistant, Capricia Marshall, shows an eager Weinstein attempting to reignite his friendship with the then-Secretary of State.
“As time moves on, I realize I haven’t seen you and Mrs. Clinton (Hillary) in a long time, but I think of you both often,” Weinstein wrote. “I don’t know if movie producers are still worthy in your world, but next time you’re in NYC I’d love to see you.”
The Hollywood mogul harked to cozier times between the two as Hillary watched ‘Shakespeare in Love’ and even promoted ‘The King’s Speech’ before its release.
“It’s a fun movie that is much in the tradition of Shakespeare in Love. Again I think you would both like it (and Hillary would approve because it’s PG-13 with not too many swear words),” he wrote.
Ironically signed, “Your bad friend, Harvey.”
(Which begs the question – did Hillary know just how “bad?”)
Hillary excitedly took Weinstein up on his offer, replying to her assistant: “That is so sweet. So pls let him know I not only want the movies, including The Tillman Story) but I’ve heard about some of his other projects from Jamie Patricof (Company Men, Blue Valentine) that also sound great.”
The next released correspondence took place in June 2012 when Weinstein emailed to ask for a copy of an interview he did with Hillary’s husband, Bill, after guest hosting Piers Morgan’s CNN show.
“Do you think calling Secretary Clinton the greatest Secretary of State of all time shows just a touch of my bias? Pres. Clinton is incredible. I hope our current president, who is as busy as can be, gets to see it,” Weinstein wrote, in addition to mentioning how he scored some anti-Romney and even some anti-Trump creds in the interview.
“I did my best to flatten Romney in a cool kind of way, and talked about how Donald Trump was uncool was the least I could do,” he wrote.
Weinstein again emailed Clinton in 2013 to ask if there was “anything” he could do for her, to which she instructed her assistant to “Pls respond.”
