In a statement released Tuesday, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said she was "shocked and appalled" by the accusations made about Hollywood producer and Clinton donor Harvey Weinstein.

Clinton, who has not taken her defeat to Trump in the last election lightly, blames all sides for her woes, and equally told The Times that in hindsight Brexit "should have been a bigger alarm" for her own campaign.

Some Republicans have seized on the Weinstein report and his ties to the Democratic Party. Trump pushed back by touting similar allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton. But she didn't mention Harvey Weinstein.

Democrats in the U.S. Senate rushed last week to condemn Weinstein and donate any contributions received from the movie executive to charities.
