Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has been reaching out to his contacts in the media in an effort to clear his name, according to a new report.
Weinstein, who has been mostly silent since a slew of women accused of sexual assault in 2017, sent an email to members of the media pointing them to press coverage that shows his New York rape case appears to be falling apart, TMZ reported.
“As you can see from all three of these articles, the police have played a very difficult role in my investigation,” the email reads, according to the gossip site. “All 3 police officers have either been retired, or repositioned from the SVU. The articles are self explanatory, but I’d like to speak with you on the phone if you have some time. There is more to this story … ”
Weinstein’s email comes as his lawyer filed a motion in November to dismiss the remaining criminal case against him in Manhattan court.
In October, a judge dismissed a charge related to an accusation by Lucia Evans, who claimed Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004.
The lead detective on Evans’ case was booted off of it for alleged misconduct.
