His need: Figuring out the eventual fate of the Weinstein Company. Furthermore, everybody else’s: How much did Bob know, truly?

“I end up in a waking bad dream,” Weinstein told the Hollywood Reporter.
On what he knew
“I really was very mindful that Harvey was philandering with each lady he could meet. I was wiped out and disturbed by his activities. In any case, that is the degree of what [I knew]. I stated, ‘Harvey, you’re recently duping. For what reason do you continually cheat?’ I could see it. Be that as it may, I wasn’t in the live with him.
“For me, I thought he was truly recently going out there conning inescapably. It wasn’t care for he even had a paramour. It was in a steady progression and that I knew about. Be that as it may, similarly as being in a room and hearing the depiction in the New York Times? No chance. No F-in way was I mindful that that was the sort of predator that he was. Also, the way he persuaded individuals to get things done? I thought they were all consensual circumstances.
“I’ll disclose to you what I knew. Harvey was a domineering jerk, Harvey was presumptuous, he treated individuals like poop constantly. That I knew.”
On his association with Harvey
“Oh my goodness something that individuals don’t have the foggiest idea. Throughout the previous five years, I’ve most likely conversed with my sibling ten times on any individual level. That is the break that is gone on. Since Dimension began, we ran two separate organizations. Such a significant number of the general population that he works with — on-screen characters, on-screen characters — I’ve never at any point met and they know it. I needed to lead a different presence. So we were driving two separate divisions.”
“I separated my sibling five years prior. Truly. Furthermore, those that know me by and by in this organization saw how I couldn’t take being around him on any level. Undoubtedly my little girls and my family knew it. I couldn’t take his conning, his lying and furthermore his state of mind toward everybody. I needed to separate myself to survive.”
On Harvey’s future in the Academy
“I was going to really compose [to the Academy]. What’s more, I will do it. I am going to compose a note to them saying he certainly ought to be kicked out of the Academy.”
On the eventual fate of the Weinstein Company
“I know they’re stating ‘Closed this organization down.’ Well, they didn’t close Fox News down, they didn’t close NBC down. My sibling is the one that should pay with everything. What’s more, I mean actually — whether it’s criminal or something else — I will be steady of the majority of that. In any case, I don’t think the general population that are the representatives of this organization or the organization itself should pay.”
“Whatever I can state is that there is an arrangement to turn out on the opposite side. And furthermore the opposite side that makes general society legitimately feel cheerful that what Harvey remained for exists not any more. General society merits that. The casualties merit that. Everyone merits that.”
