Harvey Weinstein accuser reveals video of apparent harassment

A new video of a business meeting between Harvey Weinstein and a woman who has accused him of raping her shows him hitting on the woman and appearing to touch her inappropriately - just hours before the accuser says he raped her in a hotel room.

Ms Thompson was at The Weinstein Company offices in NY in September 2011 to pitch her tech start-up company's new video and analytics service.

Video from that meeting, which Thompson took on her laptop in 2011 as a recorded presentation, aired on Sky News Wednesday as part of an exclusive interview with Thompson.

Prosecutors argue they do not have the responsibility to turn over the emails because Weinstein could have given testimony about the alleged relationship himself, which he did not do.

At one point he tells her: "Let me have a little part of you". Give it to me. "It's okay, would you like to do it some more?"

The clip starts with Weinstein entering the room and telling someone off camera not to interrupt. he then closes and locks the door behind him.

"That's too high." However, the media mogul remained undeterred and kept stroking her arm, even claiming at one point that, "data is so hot, right".

Thompson spoke to Sky News, alleging that during their meeting Weinstein put his hand under the table and under her dress. She ended up in Weinstein's hotel room, where Weinstein raped her despite her attempts to get away, Thompson alleged.

Thompson told Sky News Weinstein was "playing a cat-and-mouse game from the very beginning to see how far he could push me, and what my reactions might be so that he could gauge how he would play with (me), where my levers were, what were my vulnerabilities".

"I was trying to save face a bit ... trying to manage the situation".

Weinstein's lawyer said the full video "demonstrates that there is nothing forceful" and shows "casual, if not awkward, flirting from both parties".

"We believe that the People's response in its entirety makes it absolutely clear that the case against Mr. Weinstein can not be successfully prosecuted", said Brafman in a statement to Deadline. "At first, I tried to, you know, volley a little bit with him", Thompson continued. I constantly felt trapped, no matter where I turned.

Thompson is one of three women who filed a lawsuit against Weinstein in June.

Thompson also rejected critics who said she encouraged Weinstein's behavior. "We don't have to live with being raped when we think we're going to a business meeting", Thompson said. "I thought I could handle it". They said the secret grand jury documents provided to the judge were enough to show they presented evidence "fairly and in a manner that was not misleading".

Weinstein is due back in court in Manhattan Sept. 20. They include: film actress Rose McGowan, who said Weinstein raped her in 1997 in Utah; "Sopranos" actress Annabella Sciorra, who said he raped her in her NY apartment in 1992; and the Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe, who said he attacked her in a London hotel room in 2008.
