(REUTERS/Brian Frank) Actress Lena Dunham asserted she warned Hillary Clintonâ€™s crusade about disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and was uncomfortable with his presence during the 2016 presidential campaign, reportedly a report out Tuesday.The â€œGirlsâ€� star told The- New York Times in that she heard stories about Weinstein from other actresses who claimed they had troubling interactions with him, so in March of 2016 she warned Clinton crusade deputy communications manager Kristina Schake about him.â€œI just want you to let you know in that Harveyâ€™s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,â€� Dunham asserted she told the campaign. â€œI think itâ€™s a really offensive idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved 'cause itâ€™s an open secret in Hollywood in that he has a issue with sexual assault.â€�LENA DUNHAM’S CONTROVERSIES, FROM WISHING SHE HAD ABORTION TO DEFENDING ACCUSED RAPISTDunham, who asserted she has â€œan incredible allegiance to Hillary,â€� claimed Schake told her sheâ€™d relay the message to crusade manager Robby Mook, yet in that she was surprised at the warning.The arguable actress asserted she moreover told another Clinton crusade member, spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod, about Weinstein. Dunham asserted â€œthe crusade had not responded to her concernsâ€� about the disgraced megaproducer, whoâ€™s been accused of sexually assaulting or harassing more than 100 women.Weinstein had donated thousands of dollars to Clintonâ€™s political campaigns over the years, and it took the former secretary of state five days to break her silence following the accusations made against him.â€œI was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,â€� the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee asserted in a acknowledgment through crusade communications director Nick Merrill. â€œThe behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.â€�LENA DUNHAM UNDER SIEGE FOR ‘SHOCKING HYPOCRISY’ FOR PREACHING ON ‘GIRLS’ WRITER ACCUSED OF SEX ABUSEMerrill told The- Times in that no one ever told him about Dunhamâ€™s warning regarding Weinstein to the campaign, and Schake and Elrod â€œdeniedâ€� in that the actress â€œmentioned rapeâ€� when she informed the two about him.Last month, Dunham apologized for defending a male writer and executive producer of â€œGirlsâ€� who was accused of raping an actress when she was 17 years of time old.Nicole Darrah covers breaking and trending news for FoxNews.com.
