Jeff Session’s Department of Justice appears to have taken Tucker Carlson’s advice and moved hard against Harvey Weinstein.
From The Daily Mail:
The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned.
While it is unknown whether the DOJ order came directly from Sessions, the move is likely to be seen in a political light given Weinstein’s friendship with Trump foe Hillary Clinton.
The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein was planning on heading to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.
However the movie exec appeared to have a last minute change of heart and decided to travel to Arizona for treatment instead at The Meadows center.
The FBI can both look at whether he has committed any federal crimes in the U.S. and prepare extradition proceedings if he remains in Europe.
Among the allegations against Weinstein, which the FBI is expected to examine, is that he forced Lucia Evans, a student who wanted to be an actress, to perform oral sex on him in New York in 2004.
New York State has no statute of limitations on rape and criminal sexual acts – its legal term for forced oral or anal intercourse.
Check out the video of Tucker reacting to the news above.
Fortunately he didn’t act immediately to flee as TMZ’s earlier report suggested. Hopefully by launching this investigation they can keep him grounded in America and not let him flee to France or Israel.
