Not Just Rape, Lawsuit Accuses Harvey Weinstein of 'Sex Trafficking'--Just Like Jeffrey Epst

• http://thefreethoughtproject.com

Harvey Weinstein has now been accused of violating sex trafficking laws—similar to what Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of when he spent just 1 year in prison.

While dozens of women have claimed they were sexually assaulted by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the latest allegations accuse him of "sex trafficking," which would put Weinstein in the same camp as another wealthy man who spent just one year in prison–Jeffrey Epstein.

British actress Kadian Noble has filed a lawsuit against Weinstein that accuses him of violating sex trafficking laws during the Cannes film festival in 2004. The lawsuit claimed that while "travelling in foreign commerce," Weinstein intentionally "recruited and enticed a young aspiring actress."

Noble said in the lawsuit that after grooming her by promising her a role in an upcoming film, Weinstein insisted that she come up to his hotel room to discuss the role, all the while "knowing that he would use means of force, fraud or coercion to cause her to engage in a sex act in his hotel room."

Describing Weinstein as "a gatekeeper of enormous influence in the entertainment industry," Noble said she saw the producer as a man whose approval carried "tremendous significance to the future of her acting career." According to the lawsuit: 

"[Weinstein] approached [Noble] at Le Majestic Hotel in Cannes, France. [Weinstein] asked [Noble] to come to his hotel room to review her reel with her and discuss further steps in securing the role he had previously targeted for her. [Noble] came to [Weinstein's] hotel room. Once in the room, [Weinstein] instructed [Noble] to have a seat on the couch. [Weinstein] sat next to [Noble] on the couch and had her play him her reel. [Weinstein] began massaging [Noble] and then gripped her shoulders. He informed her that she needed to relax, and if she did, his people would have all of her details and would 'take care of everything' for her."

Noble's lawsuit also named Harvey's brother, Bob Weinstein, and The Weinstein Company, claiming that they were aware of Harvey Weinstein's conduct in the name of promoting the company's projects. Noble claimed that when she was with Weinstein, he "called an unnamed TWC producer in the United States and put him on the phone" with Noble. The producer told Noble that "she needed to be 'a good girl and do whatever he wished,' and if she did, then 'they would work' with her further."
