The Department of Justice Opens the Investigations of Harvey Weinstein

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has started an investigation on Harvey Weinstein who is a very powerful man in the film industry. According to Daily Mail.com, this particular move came per the orders of the Department of Justice which is run by President Donald Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions who has given instructions to the bureau for investigating the increasing allegations leveled at Harvey Weinstein. But it is still not clear that whether the order from the justice department came directly from Jeff Sessions or not. This move is quite sure to be seen in a political light given the friendship of Weinstein with Hilary Clinton who is a rival of Donald Trump. This move by the justice department came at the time when rumors said that Weinstein was planning to go to a sex rehab in Europe leading to fears of a Roman Polanski style situation where he dribbles the prosecution in the United States. However, there was a sudden change of plans by Weinstein in the last minute in which he decided to travel to Arizona for the purpose of the treatment instead of The Meadows Centre.

The FBI has opened up an investigation into the disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein for alleged sex crimes. The investigation team can find out whether Weinstein had committed the sex crimes in the United States and at the same time can extradition proceedings if he remains in Europe. Among the allegations that are against Harvey Weinstein, which the FBI is expected to examine is that whether he forced Lucia Evans who is a student and wanted to be an actress, to perform oral sex on him in New York in the year 2014. The state of New York has no law of limitations of rape and criminal sexual acts which is actually the legal term for forced anal or oral intercourse. On Wednesday evening, the NYPD confirmed that they have started an investigation against Weinstein.

The Special Victims Division has been given orders to 'Endeavour to identify and locate and interview any of the potential victims' the very famous Oscar winning film producer Harvey Weinstein. A police official said referred to Weinstein as a super predator and his conduct shows that he has been engaged with these kinds of activities of sexual crimes for a long period of time. Another police official mentioned that he's a professional in this particular field. The investigating team believes that the famous Hollywood personality has committed these types of crimes in several countries when he travelled to different places for the promotion of his films.
