Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood heavyweight, has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently as multiple women have accused him of sexual harassment and even rape.

IJR recently reported that Weinstein and the Clintons appear to be good friends, according to both pictures and emails exchanged several years ago. Weinstein has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Clintons, donated money directly to them, and even hosted private fundraisers for them in 2016.

But now, a video from 2012 that IJR has dug up after coming across one of Weinstein's emails, which was leaked, has surfaced. Weinstein appeared on CNN to fill in for Piers Morgan and brought former President Bill Clinton on as a guest on the show.

After the interview, Weinstein sent an email, which was exposed by WikiLeaks, to Hillary Clinton, saying:

Not sure if you were able to catch my interview with President Clinton last night on Piers Morgan Tonight. Do you think calling Secretary Clinton the greatest Secretary of State of all time shows just a touch of my bias?

Pres. Clinton is incredible. I hope our current president, who is as busy as can be, gets to see it. I did my best to flatten Romney in a cool kind of way, and talked about how Donald Trump was uncool was the least I could do.

Yes, that was all the way back in 2012.

In the TV interview, Weinstein said:

“I know Donald Trump to be a sane, smart businessman ... doesn't he realize how uncool he is?”

Then, President Clinton responded:

“Donald Trump has been uncommonly nice to Hillary and me and we're all New Yorkers. I like him and I love playing golf with him.”
