Rose McGowan Reacts to Harvey Weinstein's Arrest: "We Got You"

Rose McGowan Reacts to Harvey Weinstein's Arrest:

Harvey Weinstein turned himself in today at New York's Tribeca precinct near the home of his former The Weinstein Company and arrested on multiple sex crimes charges handed down by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.

Film producer Harvey Weinstein leaves criminal court following his arraignment in Manhattan in NY, U.S., May 25, 2018.

According to the Times' Ben Mueller, one of the two women cited in the charges is actress Lucia Evans, who told her story to journalist Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker previous year.

Out on bail, Weinstein's travel will be restricted to NY and the neighbouring state of CT.

Weinstein pleaded not guilty and paid $1 million dollars on bail.

Fact-Checkers Bust Trump for False Claims During His Naval Academy Speech
During a commencement speech Friday at the Naval Academy, President Donald Trump stumbled into the tangled web of enunciation. Trump has regularly praised Jackson, although at times with a questionable grasp of history .

More than 70 women have accused the co-founder of the Miramax film studio and the Weinstein Co of sexual misconduct, including rape, with some allegations dating back decades.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, whose office brought the charges against Weinstein Friday, was earlier criticized for having declined to indict the film mogul in 2015, when an Italian model accused him of sexual assault. He consented to electric monitoring and is banned from traveling outside of NY or CT.

So the fact that he was carrying at least two highly visible books as he arrived at the police station - one about Broadway's heyday, the other about a controversial film director - appeared to be created to send a message, but what message exactly?

"We got you, we got you". The D.A.'s office has said that it will continue to investigate other allegations. Zelda Perkins, Weinstein's former assistant, told FRONTLINE that she and a colleague - who accused Weinstein of trying to rape her - signed a non-disclosure agreement. Weinstein's attorney Benjamin Brafman stated in a news conference that they, "intend to move very quickly to dismiss these charges".

"Mr. Weinstein did not invent the casting couch in Hollywood, and to the extent that there is bad behaviour in that industry, that is not what this is about".

Asia Argento has also had her say, as she shared a video of the news breaking along with the caption: 'This is the only movie Harvey Weinstein will be remembered for #perpwalk'.

The night before on Thursday evening she posted about his arrest and said: 'I, and so many of Harvey Weinstein's survivors, had given up hope that our rapist would be held accountable by law. He was the cult leader of Hollywood, I would say.

Standing alongside his celebrated defense attorney, Weinstein looked glum and appeared not to speak during the fleeting court appearance, at which he agreed to post bail at $1 million cash and was ordered fitted with a Global Positioning System monitoring device.

Last week, at the closing ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival, where Weinstein was once a fixture and several of his alleged sexual assault incidents took place, Argento gave an impromptu speech, calling out other sexual predators. "The fact that our voices have made a difference means so much to me and to all of us who spoke out in the MeToo movement".

Allegations from dozens of women against the once-powerhouse producer catalyzed what became known as the #MeToo movement, a national reckoning about sexual misconduct.
