Congressional Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, have given charities thousands of dollars in donations they had received from Weinstein.

"I support Cy Vance, I will endorse Cy Vance for re-election, and I don't understand the controversy", James said, according to a tweet by a reporter.

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance spoke at an event at John Jay College in Midtown on Wednesday.

The model, Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, brought allegations against Weinstein more than two years before last week's report in the New York Times unleashed a wave of allegations - some from A-list movie stars - spanning decades.

Vance - who has faced a wave of criticism recently for his 2015 decision to toss the Weinstein case and for dropping a probe into the Trump family - insisted he was guided by the law in the case and said he has no regrets.

Police were approached by Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, an Italian actress who accused Weinstein of groping her at a business meeting.

Since Vance began running for district attorney, Boies' son Christopher has given Vance's campaigns $35,000. "The seasoned prosecutors in our Sex Crimes Unit were not afforded the opportunity before the meeting to counsel investigators on what was necessary to capture in order to prove a misdemeanor sex crime", Agnifilo writes.

They say the "horrifying" audio "was insufficient to prove a crime under NY law" which left prosecutors with "no choice but to conclude the criminal investigation without charges". He apologises, saying he "won't do it again".

The British actress and model Cara Delevingne is the latest to accuse Weinstein of inappropriate behaviour.

She said in a statement her "heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions".

"I, like they, were very disturbed by the contents of the tape".

Weinstein stands accused of rape by multiple women, according to an explosive new story by The New Yorker magazine. On the same day, his wife Georgina Chapman said she was leaving him. His spokesperson has since said any allegations of non-consensual sex are "unequivocally denied".

But she was unable to provide further comment as she had signed a "nondisclosure agreement with Weinstein, including an affidavit stating that the acts Weinstein admits to in the recording never happened" in exchange for a financial settlement.

It comes after Bafta, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts suspended his membership of the organisation. "Subsequent investigative steps undertaken in order to establish intent were not successful". "I'm sorry, just come on in". Thanks to NYPD bungling, Freidman-Agnifilo concludes, their office had "no choice but to conclude the investigation without criminal charges". I'm used to that. "The detectives used well established investigative techniques", it said.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office, which is under fire for its handling of a sex assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein in 2015, is now urging other Weinstein victims to come forward.

Weinstein was sacked Sunday by the Weinstein Co., the studio he co-founded, three days after the bombshell New York Times expose alleged decades of crude sexual behavior on his part toward female employees and actresses, including Ashley Judd.
