“Crime Stories With Nancy Grace” host Nancy Grace weighed in on the Harvey Weinstein case hours after his conviction on Monday.
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Nancy said that Weinstein’s illicit behavior towards women was an open secret in Hollywood. She says the first witness testified that people in the industry were aware of Weinstein’s victims, which many referred to as his “girlfriends.”
Grace also believes Weinstein, 67, is getting preferential treatment. While en route to Rikers Island, the disgraced producer reportedly experienced high blood pressure and heart palpitations and was taken to the hospital.
“You know where Weinstein is right now? He’s not on his way to jail but on his way to the hospital. He’s already whining, having chest pains,” Grace commented.
“You wonder, do those women have chest pains after he raped them?”
Weinstein was convicted in New York of first-degree commission of a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. He was acquitted of predatory sexual assault and first-degree rape.
Weinstein still faces rape and sexual assault charges in California. Grace said the allegations levied against him in that case are especially heinous.
“In one of those [Los Angeles] cases, the woman tried to show him — according to her — pictures of her children, her family, begging him to stop, but he didn’t. And now, he will be tried for that as well out there,” she said.
Weinstein’s sentencing in New York is scheduled for March 11.
