NEW: @rosemcgowan speaks out about Weinstein hiring two of the attorneys that recently represented her: "This is a major conflict of interest but I knew there was shadiness going on behind the scenes" https://t.co/JhqYKe78Ym— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) January 23, 2019
If you recall, Rose McGowan had an arrest warrant in Virginia after a flight attendant found cocaine in a wallet McGowan had left behind on a plane. She pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor drug charge as part of a no-jail deal with prosecutors last month.
Jose Baez and Ronald Sullivan were co-counsel on her drug case. They're now representing Harvey Weinstein, the man who Rose accused of rape and suspected was behind planting the drugs for speaking out against him.
She tells the Daily Beast, "This is a major conflict of interest but I knew there was shadiness going on behind the scenes. This is why my case didn’t go to trial—my instinct was my lawyers had been bought off."
Rose also leaked emails between Weinstein and his lawyer, Blair Berk, who admitted she "took care" of getting an arrest warrant put out for Rose:
Here is some breaking news, just connect the dots. I have been messed with every step of the way in this fight against a super predator. So much evil, so much complicity. #hollywood #Virginia #lawyers #scumbags #BlairBerk pic.twitter.com/RbIHFtp5gi— rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) January 23, 2019
Saw this wasn't posted, and that media in general isn't reporting on it. I wonder why?
