Harvey Weinstein inappropriately touches woman during business meeting hours before she alleges he raped her

A 2011 video shows shamed Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein inappropriately touching a woman hours before he allegedly raped her.
In the footage obtained by Sky News, Weinstein hugs and makes sexually suggestive comments to 28-year-old Melissa Thompson during a business meeting in September of that year.
Ms Thompson had visited The Weinstein Company offices in New York to make a business pitch for her company’s video and analytics service and recorded their meeting as part of the demo.
She told the outlet that she had expected to meet the marketing team but was seen meeting Weinstein, 66, in an office alone.

Melissa Thompson released the footage on Wednesday 
The footage begins with Weinstein telling nearby staff "don't interrupt" before he shuts the door. Ms Thompson then goes to shake Weinstein's hand, but he instead hugs her and runs his hands up and down her back.
"That's nice, let's keep it up," he tells her while doing so.
As he sits down, he asks Ms Thompson: "So am I allowed to flirt with you?"
She replies: "Ummm we'll see, a little bit."
Ms Thompson alleged that during their meeting Weinstein put his hand under the table and under her dress
Ms Thompson had met with Weinstein to discuss her tech company 
Weinstein tells her: "A little bit, not much right? OK, then alright, I won't."
Speaking to Sky News, Ms Thompson alleged that during their meeting Weinstein put his hand under the table and under her dress.
In the video, she tells Weinstein: "Data's so hot right?"
"It is hot. You're hot," Weinstein replies.
This is when he allegedly ran his hand up her leg under the dress.
"Let me have a little part of you. Give it to me," he says in the video. "It's okay, would you like to do it some more?"
Ms Thompson filed a lawsuit in June 
Ms Thompson replies: "A little bit... a little high, that's a little high, that's a little high."
She told the outlet that she didn't think she was encouraging his behaviour.
"I don't think I purposely encouraged him. I think there was a combination of confidence and naivety that led me to this dynamic that we see now, watching back."
Weinstein has always denied all allegations of non-consensual sexual contact 
When they finished their meeting, the pair made arrangements to meet in the lobby of the nearby Tribeca Grand hotel.
Ms Thompson claims she was under the impression the meeting was to potentially close the deal they had met about earlier.
When she got to the hotel lobby, Weinstein told her to follow him and took her up to his hotel room - she thought they were going to a conference room.
She told the outlet that she didn't think she was encouraging his behaviour 
Ms Thompson, who filed a lawsuit against Weinstein in June, alleges the producer then raped her.
Weinstein has always denied all allegations of non-consensual sexual contact.
Harvey Weinstein's lawyer Benjamin Brafman said in a statement: "Several respected journalists and trustworthy individuals have seen the entire video.
"What they shared with us is that the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties.

"Anything short of that is intended to make Mr Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative.
"It was produced by Ms Thompson to bolster her position in a civil lawsuit seeking money.
"This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter."
Sky New said they did not pay Ms Thompson.13235935
