Bombshell Report: Weinstein Hired Spies To Keep Accusers Quiet

08 November 2017, 12:26 | Ivan Casey

Former Mossad agents worked on Weinstein's behalf, report claims

Harvey Weinstein

The newspaper released a statement on Monday following the New Yorker's story: "We learned today that the law firm of Boies Schiller and Flexner secretly worked to stop our reporting on Harvey Weinstein at the same time as the firm's lawyers were representing us in other matters. Diana Filip. No fucking way.'" Filip reportedly contacted McGowan even after the bombshell reports about Weinstein were published last month.

The Black Cube investigator went on to meet with a journalist under the guise that they were a Harvey victim.

"Filip" also met Ben Wallace, a journalist at NY magazine pursuing the Weinstein story, on two separate occasions.

According to dozens of pages of documents, and seven people directly involved in the effort, the firms that Weinstein hired included Kroll, which is one of the world's largest corporate-intelligence companies, and Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies.

With the explicit goal of preventing allegations reaching the press, Weinstein had agents set up meetings with people who may uncover him. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and producers guild has also revoked Weinstein's membership.

His representative Sallie Hofmeister did not immediately return an email seeking comment.

Undermining Weinstein's longstanding history as a self-proclaimed gender equality advocate, he oversaw the actions of female agents who posed under pseudonyms to insinuate themselves in accuser's lives: one such identity was that of "Diana Filip", who claimed she was starting a women's advocacy group, who met with Rose McGowan several times and surreptitiously recorded her, in order to extract information about her accusation that Weinstein had raped her.

The Television Academy says it is also speeding up a review of its code of conduct for members, and wants to provide clear protocols for workplace decency and respect.

This time around, Farrow's focus is on the powerful agencies and investigators Weinstein hired to gather information not only on his accusers, but also on the journalists who were preparing reports about Weinstein's alleged behavior.

After McGowan told the woman that she was talking to Farrow for the New Yorker article, Filip called the reporter.

I asked Boies directly whether he hired investigators to impede the Times in 2004, as he did this year. Boies denies that there was any conflict of interest, though he does confirm working with and paying two investigative firms on Weinstein's behalf.

Weinstein's spokesman has previously said, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

Farrow's long-read is worth a read, because not only does it seem to show, once again, how Weinstein was fully aware of various women's allegations against him and therefore how badly he had treated them. "Just wanted to tell you how fearless I think you are".

That's just one of the startling revelations in Ronan Farrow's latest New Yorker piece, which chronicles the Hollywood titan's elaborate effort to silence accusers and journalists through deception and intimidation. According to Farrow, Boies now regards it as a mistake to contract with and pay contractors that "we did not select and direct".
