Harvey Weinstein’s Trial Update!


(audience cheering) Too much information, I would throw you right out. (audience clapping) I would! What do you change your hair color to get in there? Me? Yes.
No. They just let you in? Well, you need a press pass, and a very secure one. Believe me, not just that, well, actually it is open to the public, Wendy. Oh. But there’s a long line, we’ll get to that, not just anyone can get in. All right, well look, the jury begins deliberating on Harvey Weinstein case today. Here with the inside scoop is a girl, you’ve been messing with our show for a long time, this is Elizabeth, Elizabeth Wagmeister. (audience cheers) And the great thing about having Elizabeth here for the Weinstein case is that she goes into the courtroom. She’s got the press pass. She sits there and is actually getting that, the real action. Yes. Okay, so what’s going on? So Wendy, as we were just talking about, I have been in court every single day, the Harvey Weinstein trial– Do you wear that? I do not wear this. Okay.
(audience laughing) I’m going right to court– Harvey would like that. I’m going right to court after this and I will be putting on not Wendy clothes, I showed up for you, but so this trial, it started on January 6th, I have been in court every single day. Well, closing arguments were last week. Today, the jury starts deliberating. Literally, Wendy, as we are speaking, the jury has begun deliberation. Talk fast, you’re missing stuff! So that means the verdict can come as soon as today. They could also take days, weeks, we don’t know when it’s coming, but it could come today. Now, Harvey Weinstein, he has been accused by over 90 women of everything ranging from sexual misconduct to rape. But here’s the thing with this trial, this case largely rests on the allegations of just two women because the statute of limitations for a lot of the other women has passed. Does he wear an ankle bracelet? He does wear an ankle bracelet, yes. So these two women, their names are Miriam Haley and Jessica Mann. They are the key witnesses in this case, Wendy. Okay. And he’s facing five charges. And by the way, the maximum sentence is life in prison. (audience clapping) What’s the minimum sentence? Well, it depends, you know, he can get acquitted. And also, it’s complex because since there’s five charges, he can be charged on any number of them. So, you know each charge, if for instance, he is charged with sexual assault from Miriam Haley, then that sentence could be from five years to 25 years. And then he’s got to go to California, England, like he’s got a whole bunch of places to be tried ’cause he’s been doing this all around the world. Yes, the Los Angeles DA has also charged him with rape and sexual assault, so he’s also facing charges, as you said, in LA. Do you think that he will go to jail? Give me the temperature going on in there. Okay, so it’s complicated. I mean, any rape case is very hard to prove. Actually, most sexual assault cases do not end up in a conviction because they’re largely a he said she said case. Now in this particular case, as I said, it rests on two women. So that’s very complicated. You know, during jury selection, Harvey’s defense kept saying to the potential jurors, you need to just focus on what’s in the court. You cannot focus on the stories. You can’t focus on the Me Too movement. This is about what’s in court. So what’s complicated about this is these women, they went back to Harvey after, there is evidence of texts. Yeah I know, I heard, I know. And that’s what the defense has largely been resting their case on. One of them called him, “You are my soulmate”. Yes, but here’s the thing, the prosecution, they brought in an expert witness, her name is Dr. Barbara Ziv, and she is a forensic psychiatrist who specializes in victims of sexual assault. Okay. She explained that trauma victims, rape victims, it’s very normal to go back to your perpetrator. In fact, it’s abnormal if you don’t. So they continue this communication, it’s complex, and we’ll see if the jury can get past that. How does Harvey look in the court? Well, as you’ve seen, we all know about the walker, right? So Harvey Weinstein, he has been coming into court every single day with a walker. He looks very frail, very feeble. Does he look dusty? Like, like his suits aren’t cleaned? Yes, the suits are wrinkled, I’ll tell you that. Thank you. The suits are wrinkled, the hair is not brushed. Does he stay awake? Sometimes, but sometimes not. So here’s the thing, this has been a long trial, sometimes I’ve spotted him, you know, I’m in the courtroom every day, I’ve seen him at the defendant’s table, sometimes dozing off doing one of these– Does he slump? He scribbles notes a lot, he chews on gum or mints or something, but I will tell you, despite this frail, feeble look, walking in with a walker, by the way, he had back surgery from a car accident in August, so that’s why his defense says he has a walker. A lot of people are wondering if it’s fake. Harvey Weinstein says it is not fake, but despite this frail and feeble look, he’s in very good spirits. He walks into court every day, he says hello to the press, he smiles, he laughs, and after closing arguments, were Friday and I was there. I have to tell you, he was very confident, after his defense gave their closing arguments and they were strong, they were very effective, Wendy, he walked out, and we asked how it was, and he said it to the press that his attorney’s speech was the Queen’s Speech, that’s what he said. And that’s why we at Wendy had to call you because I’m done with this case. I’m very confused. I just, if, okay, even if not guilty, he still faces the other trials. Yes. And they’re going to happen right away, right after New York is done, he flies right to L.A.? Yeah, we don’t know that exactly yet, but I can tell you this is not going anywhere. So whatever happens with this trial, whether he’s acquitted or not, he as you said, will be facing charges in L.A. There’s other investigations going on overseas. But Wendy, something that I think you might be interested in, one of the most shocking parts of the case, ’cause everyone asks, “What was the most shocking part of being in court?” Well one of the women described Harvey’s genitalia. Go! As, I knew she’d be into it, as deformed. That is the word.
(groaning) That is the word that she used on the stand, and that’s the thing with these cases, it gets really nasty, it gets really into the nitty gritty on the stand–
Well, we don’t know that its deformed, but that’s what she– Well, the jury was given photos of Harvey Weinstein–
How did they get photos? So the DA’s office, the Manhattan DA’s office, they took naked photos of Harvey for evidence. Not the Michael Jackson! They showed the jury. Oh my gosh! They showed the jury, I did not see them, press was not allowed, and the jury– Deformed why, because it leans a little to the left? She–
(audience laughing) That’s not deformed. No, read my reporting on variety.com ’cause I don’t like saying these things on national TV, but there are some serious details, that not just Jessica Mans said, by the way– Say it you’re a grown woman, talk to me. All right, Wendy, well one of the women, she said she was not sure if the testicles were there or not. And then another woman, she said that she wasn’t sure if the other part was there either. (audience laughs) And then another woman, Lauren Young, who she is another witness, the charges don’t rest on her, but she also echoed Jessica Mann’s description. So they showed the jury photos, the jury, they shuffled through them really quickly. The jury, it’s very hard to tell what they’re thinking. They’re very stone cold. When they got these photos, that was the one time I saw a reaction. I’d be like, what the hell is this, look! (audience clapping) But, the defense, so Harvey Weinstein’s defense team, during closing arguments, they brought up the naked photos. They said there was no reason for those to be shown other than to humiliate him. So, that’s the point that they brought up in closing arguments. Elizabeth, what do you eat all day? ‘Cause, can you smuggle in a sandwich? Well, you’re technically not allowed to eat in the courtroom, but– But what do you do? I go into the hallway and I file my story, and I eat a granola bar, I eat my almonds– You’ve lost like 25 pounds being on this case. Here’s the thing with being a journalist, people often think it’s glamorous because they see this, they see the dress, they see I’m sitting with Wendy Williams, but really we’re sitting in a court room and we have to do the work. And this is a very important story to get out there. It’s a monumental trial. It’s the first trial of the Me Too movement because Cosby was before that. So there’s a lot resting on this case. Why am I under house arrest? There’s a lot resting on this case. The stakes are very, very high. I’ve been interviewing a lot of women who have accused Harvey Weinstein for an upcoming story that’ll be coming out in Variety. So the stakes are really high You make me really proud to know you, you know? And one of the people who supported our show all these years. This, everybody, is the fabulous Elizabeth Wagmeister. (crowd cheers) (upbeat music)

  5. It aint complicated shes not paying attention. Noone stays in contact with their rapist on that level. She discussed crap the media put out already and the gentalia information is exploitive – proves nothing if his side of the story is true.

  6. Bill Cosby was tried in a similar manner. Yet, didn't all those women spring up from the past? Please enlighten me if you all have more information.

  7. There are many who are behind the scenes in Hollywood who have forced actors and singers into contracts that are the same as blood sacrifices. It's disgusting. I don't know how they have gotten away with it for so long.

  8. I really hate to say this and hope I am wrong but Wendy is giving me early signs of dementia or some sort of memory issue. Any doctors in the comment section? Please comment. She is always random with her responses. I think the trauma of her marriage put a toll on her.

  9. Wendy! Whay is up with that hair? ? Who.is doing your hair? It's like one day it looks great, the next its a hot mess like on this video

  10. HARVEY WEINSTEIN won't do any PRISON time WHITE PRIVILEGE only BLACK Male CELEBRITIES entertainers go to PRISON .. Tha fix is in lies are been told if he rapes he has to have a penis

  11. I think Wendy is jealous of the non meaty upper arms (given that she looked her up and down and commented on her weight, asked what she eats)

  12. … But Harvey Weinstein isn't facing charges in Toronto ☕ Thats the real tea……even though women accused him here

  13. But I get the naked pics, its to prove that those women were in fact in contact with him, only they would know those details about his genitalia, same as in the MJ case

  14. gross I really don’t need to hear about Harvey’s genitalia. How did they obtain naked photos of him when he’s still alive?! Sick perverted jury….

  15. Wait!
    NONE of these 90 women could have turned around and walked out the door???
    NONE of these 90 women had the choice to turn and walk away, or to stay and have sex???

  16. Wow it seems like they're spamming her channel with a bunch of s*** clips to distract from the real video everyone's talking about. Come on down! She's so damn high all the time. On top of that she's a horrible, insensitive, garbage human being. Everyone that is subscribed should have never!

  17. Like it or NOT, he will be acquitted by the jury. Then there will be a re-trail. Again he will be acquitted. Then he will go to LA & UK to get acquitted. Then he will die of suicide/accident/ or some drug overdose. Don't throw tantrums at me, but ask why all these women go back and forth to him at different location. These women wants a quick career and quick money without going to school & college and without working hard like regular people. They want to sell their beauty and body in exchange of indirect money. Lot of them made it happen and some missed the mark and accuse him of misconduct.

  18. Did Wendy just say Harvey would like that? Come on Wendy. You’ve been sticking your foot in your mouth these past few weeks.

  19. his most heinous crime is orchestrating that Oscar for Gwyneth when it should’ve gone to Cate Blanchett that year & he should be in jail for that

  20. 1,495 cases filed since the NY CVA has passed – Survivors have until August 14, 2020 to seek justice.

    People don’t know this is happening all over the country. Victims are getting a chance to sue their rapists because of cva laws. Child victims act laws.
    Perverts have no idea that victims of their old rapes have power to ruin their lives.
    Find out when the laws are passing in your state and if you get the revival window to sue your rapist.
    In Wisconsin the bills introduced are-
    AB424 and SB 381.

  21. He will get off, just faking making like he is sick, yet they wasted no time throwing Bill Cosby in prison for his old sexually assault case. Will be dame shame if he get off, yet they had no mercy on Bill Cosby. Bill Cosby sick to… So who cares if Harvey is sick.

  22. A nazi solider did this. Faked being frail to get sympathy. But the media had photos of him 2 days earlier walking around fine.

  23. Hard to convict him when those 2 woman were continuing to see him! That's not rape! He maybe a creep but it takes 2 and they kept on coming back!

  24. That deformed penis is gonna get off! Obviously! People with lesser crimes are rotting away in prison…. While deformed penis guy is roaming about confident with his rape-y self.

  25. I guarantee many of these women were gold digger. Now they are coming back and Guarantee they will sue him if found guilty. Why isn't the Dr & his wife, spouse being charged? They had 1,000 women come out, saying they drugged & raped them!?

  26. He's gonna get away with it,and Merica can't say Anything Bout me too anymore,because we elected the man that set up this attitude in america,powerful men been rPing woman and getting away for years but now ,it's open season on black men while white men walk away

  27. Oprah's buddy! Where is his documentary or the one of your spiritual adviser who is a convicted rapist. Where are their documentaries Oprah?

  28. Well what do you know a lot of Weinstein victims are not included in this trial because of the conveient Statue of limitations very telling but for MJ case and now recently the Rick James accuser the statue of limitations laws conveiently disappear hmm I wonder why

  29. He's gonna get found innocent. There is no evidence he did anything. These women sucked him off to get a film role. If a crime has gone on. It's one of prostitution.

  30. Is it rape if he has a micro penis or an inverted one? Surely that’s no real penetration so for the rape part, it should be Not Guilty.

  31. @4:29 when aunt Wendy did that with her head I was afraid that, that atrocious wig was gonna slip off!! I screamed! NO DONT MOVE!! 🤦🏻‍♀️

  32. I disagree with the so-called legal forensics that it's abnormal for rape victim to NOT go back to her attacker. There are cultures out here where they understand rape & DO NOT go back. So these White female "victims" kept dealing with him willfully and calling him for favors, one of them texting he's her soul mate, suggest sexual consent.

  33. I don't know what kind of QUACK doctor they consulted, but I was date-raped by a guy and I NEVER WENT BACK TO HIM.

    They are seriously trying to make excuses for these gold-digging whores that waited ALL THESE YEARS to report him.

    I'm not insinuating he's not guilty of some of the allegations but it appears to me a lot of these women are looking for a pay-day.

  34. All these dirt bags need to go down they’re are so many of them . We need them all to go down not just this disgusting blow fly.!
