Top Dem, NYTimes lawyer helped suppress NYTimes story on Weinstein, drafted Mossad spy firm contract

  • A top Democratic lawyer represented the NYT while simultaneously trying to crush their Harvey Weinstein story
  • The lawyer, David Boies, said he doesn't believe his work posed any conflict of interest.
  • The Times called the revelation a "grave betrayal of trust" and said it was "intolerable conduct."
  • Boies admitted that if Weinstein's inappropriate behavior continued past 2015, then he bore some responsibility for it.

David Boies, a prominent Democratic lawyer who represented former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, worked to suppress The New York Times' reporting on Weinstein while representing the paper in other matters, The New Yorker reported on Monday.

Weinstein reportedly hired private security companies staffed with former foreign intelligence officials to investigate and cover up sexual-harassment allegations against him when they first started emerging in the fall of 2016.
