'Morning Joe's' Mika Brzezinski to Cancel Book Deal Unless Harvey Weinstein Resigns

Harvey Weinstein attends amfAR's New York Gala honoring Harvey Weinstein in New York. Weinstein is taking a leave of absence from his own company after The New York Times released a report alleging decades of sexua

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski is calling for film producer Harvey Weinstein to go on a "long, self-imposed exile", saying she is refusing to proceed on a book deal unless he steps down from his companies in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

Lauren Sivan told the Huffington Post that she met Weinstein and other people at Cipriani and then "rode with him and others to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant in which Weinstein and Giuseppe Cipriani, who was then the head of the Cipriani restaurant empire, were investors". At Cafe Socialista, Weinstein offered Sivan a tour, which she reluctantly accepted after telling a friend to come and get her if she wasn't back in "ten minutes". Sivan, who was shocked by the entire incident, said Weinstein had called her at her office the next day to tell her "he had a great time last night".

"Well, can you just stand there and shut up."

After ejaculating into a nearby potted plant, Weinstein cleaned up and returned to the nightclub.

Canada Cancels Plans to Build Pipelines
The decision comes a month after TransCanada asked the National Energy Board to put regulatory hearings on hold. On Thursday, Notley called on the NEB to explain what future project reviews will look like in Canada.

Sivan claims she has had no further contact with Weinstein since the incident.

Weinstein then dismissed the two staffers in the kitchen.

Sivan's accusations come just one day after The New York Times published a bombshell story detailing Weinstein's decades long pattern of allegedly harassing women. Weinstein later left through the kitchen, she said. He then made a decision to masturbate, and ejaculate "into a nearby potted plant". Sivan says Weinstein ejaculated quickly into a potted plant that was in the vestibule and then proceeded to zip up his trousers and they walked back into the kitchen.

Mr. Weinstein was not available to be interviewed for the Huffington Post's report, his attorney told the new site. A list of detailed questions was emailed to a Weinstein Company publicist.

The main allegations against Ted Heath
One offence in 1964 against a boy aged 15 is alleged to have happened while Heath was secretary of state for trade and industry. AN INDEPENDENT scrutiny panel has today "commended" Wiltshire Police for their involvement in Operation Conifer.

There may have been a taste for vengeance in the brother's fateful move, as another insider said, "Bob wanted Harvey to get what's coming to him". His attorney Lisa Bloom also resigned on Saturday, despite initially defending him after he retained her as an advisor.

"I hope Harvey gets the help he seeks", Rock writes, "but I do not buy any of it at this point as I believe he is only going down this path because he can not cover his own sh- up any longer".

The Weinstein Company announced Friday that Weinstein was going on an indefinite leave pending investigation of the sexual harassment claims by an independent law firm.
