Weinstein Accuser Releases Video In Which She Was Reportedly Groped

Harvey Weinstein Accuser Releases Video of Creepy Business Meeting Before Alleged Rape

Released through an exclusive story by Sky News, the footage shows Weinstein touching and making sexually suggestive comments to Melissa Thompson, who was at Weinstein's offices in NY for a business meeting in 2011.

Apparently, Thompson had visited The Weinstein Company offices in NY to make a business pitch for her company's services and had recorded their meeting as part of the demo.

The video, which only captures the two from the waist up, doesn't show Weinstein's hands at that point, but does show Thompson reacting with discomfort and telling Weinstein, "That's too high". Thompson says she was expecting to meet with the Weinstein Company's marketing team, but instead found herself in a room with just Weinstein himself. "Can you give it to me?" She says it was standard protocol for her to record meetings, and the video for this one is unsettling. He then declines Thompson's handshake in favor of a very handsy hug. "That's a little high".

Thompson is a plaintiff in the class action suit against Weinstein, and back in June spoke to NBC News about her experience with Weinstein.

Thompson said Wednesday that she was trying to "save face" at first during the meeting.

He said, "What they shared with us, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties".

He is out on bail and has pleaded not guilty in NY to six counts allegedly committed against three women in 2004, 2006 and 2013. "It was an invitation to come to a hotel lobby that was within blocks of the office and so that to me felt much safer than being alone with him in his office", she said.

At the end of the footage, Weinstein invites Thompson for a drink a few hours later at the Tribeca Grand Hotel (now called The Roxy).

Thompson told Sky News he then ran his hand up her skirt.

Along the way, she said, he rebuffed her attempts to fight or get away.

Instead, Thompson says, he took her to his hotel room where he raped her. "He corned me, over and over again".

Thompson told Sky News that she did feel she ever encouraged Weinstein's advances and felt that he was playing a game of "cat and mouse" with her to test her limits and identify her vulnerabilities.

Thompson was part of a class action lawsuit against Weinstein filed in June in which she claimed the producer began to harass and fondle her, several USA media outlets reported. At one point, he appears genuinely interested in using her service, instructing her to tell her boss to sign him up. "It was produced by Ms. Thompson to bolster her position in a civil lawsuit seeking money".

"Any suggestion of sexual misconduct is false".

Claiming that the video tried to malign Weinstein for financial gain, Barfman said facts mattered.
