Cy Vance Jr. overruled his own prosecutors to clear the Trump children. The Manhattan district attorney’s office is being investigated for closing cases against the wealthy and powerful after getting big campaign donations, the New York Daily News reports.According to the report, the FBI is looking at whether Cy Vance Jr. and his staff dropped high-profile cases after “lawyers for the well-connected subjects made donations.”Vance, a Democrat, once refused to bring criminal charges against Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. in an alleged real estate scam. The Trump children were facing charges of fraud for allegedly lying about the number of condos that had been sold in one of their properties.At the time, Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz was once of Vance’s largest donors. The lawyer went directly to Vance to have the investigation dropped, and the DA complied with the request. Kasowitz had given Vance $25,000 before dropping the charges and another $32,000 after.According t...

A New York judge on Thursday threw out one of six sexual assault allegations against disgraced Hollywood tycoon Harvey Weinstein, a victory for a defense now clamoring for the entire case to be dismissed. Weinstein, an international pariah after being accused by more than 80 women of sexual misconduct, is still charged with rape in March 2013 and a forced act of oral sex in 2006, which could see him spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted. The 66-year-old father of five was arrested in May, eight months after he was initially accused in the media of decades of sexual misconduct.

Actress and former #MeToo heroine Rose McGowan made waves across Hollywood when she referred to the  Time’s Up movement as “all bullshit” and “a lie” in a recent interview. “It’s a Band-Aid lie to make them feel better. I know these people, I know they’re lily-livered, and as long as it looks good on the surface, to them, that’s enough,” Rose McGowan told The Times. These statements come as a surprise for many because McGowan was a central figure in last fall’s #MeToo movement in Hollywood after she accused disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape. An avalanche of sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein followed. McGowan also shared some interesting comments about conservatives who dislike the left-wing propaganda that emanates from several Hollywood figures, saying that those who criticize the “faux liberals” of Hollywood are “100% right.” “They hate Hollywood for being faux liberals...

Huffington Post made good use of an old Spy magazine experiment: it called 16 of New York's most snobbish restaurants to find out if any of them would be willing to accommodate Harvey Weinstein and five guests for dinner at 8pm that evening, "something that, for those living outside of high society, is basically unheard of." Many of the restaurants said yes, and Huffington Post ran transcripts of the calls. Here are a couple: Masa: Yes. “I have to check with chef. I’m not 100 percent sure we have enough fish, as our fish is imported from Japan on a daily basis. Allow me a moment please.” [Calls back.] “We can accommodate six guests this evening. However, in order to assure the table will be ready in a timely manner, we can accommodate at 9 p.m.” Dinner for four at Masa could run you $3474.20 Minetta Tavern: Hell yes. “We can do 8:30.” OK. “Can I have the last name you’d like on the reservation?” Weinstein.

The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court plays right into a simmering #MeToo backlash. When Sen. Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, made the dramatic announcement on Friday afternoon that she would vote in favor of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, she took pains to paint herself first as supportive of Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who testified to the Senate that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school (an allegation the judge denied under oath), and of the #MeToo movement in general.“The Me Too movement is real. It matters. It is needed, and it is long overdue,” Collins said.Then the senator proceeded to give all those who have fretted over whether this real, needed, long overdue movement has gone “too far” what they wanted to hear — that the roiling revolution of the last year can be stopped in its tracks to favor the status quo, in which even a credible accusation of sexual assault isn’t enough to keep a powe...
