The announcements come sexual harassment accusations against Weinstein continue to mount.

President Donald Trump addressed the allegations of sexual harassment made against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, ironically on the one year anniversary of the release of the infamous Access Hollywood tape of Trump making lewd comments with host Billy Bush that surfaced during last year's election.

"My understanding is that Mr Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement".

Earlier this week, a bombshell New York Times report exposed decades of sexual harassment and abuse allegations against Weinstein, including from actress Ashley Judd.

Some of her former clients, including former Fox News contributor Wendy Walsh, however, told Business Insider's Max Tani that they defended her decision to join Weinstein's team.

Bloom, who says she has known Weinstein for about a year since her book "Suspicion Nation" was optioned for a film, defended him this week in an interview with "Good Morning America".

Weinstein was a major supporter for Hillary Clinton's failed run for the presidency, donating tens of thousands of dollars to her campaign and throwing celebrity fundraisers for the Democratic nominee.

Danielle Rhoades Ha, a Times spokesperson, said Weinstein had been given two days to respond and that his full statement had been published.

Trump was asked Saturday how the allegations against Weinstein differ from his own comments.

A self-described "women's rights advocate", Bloom also said she would be working on completing a "comprehensive review" of the Weinstein Company's workplace and gender equality policies.

Movie and television producer Harvey Weinstein will take an indefinite leave of absence from his company, the board of directors of The Weinstein Co. announced on Friday.

"Harvey Weinstein needs to resign from his companies, face his sickness, and go into a long, self-imposed exile", Brzezinski wrote on Twitter.

On Saturday, Sivan tweeted that she was only able to come forward now about the incident "because of women far braver than me".

The New York Times on Thursday reported a slew of accusations against Weinstein going back decades. "I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it", he said.

Bloom has been under heavy scrutiny since deciding to represent a man accused of sexual harassment. when she nearly always represents victims.
