Harvey Weinstein guilty of sexual assault, rape

Description:

A United States jury has found Harvey Weinstein guilty of the predatory sexual act and third-degree rape.
The jury on Monday convicted him of criminal sexual act for assaulting production assistant Mimi Haleyi at his apartment in 2006 and third-degree rape of a woman in 2013.
Weinstein's sexual assault trial saw his fall from powerful Hollywood studio boss to the biggest villain of the #MeToo movement.
The verdict followed weeks of often graphic testimony from a string of accusers alleging rapes, forced oral sex, groping, masturbation, and lewd propositions.
Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.

An op-ed in the New York Times has suggested some Democrats are willing to "sacrifice" Joe Biden's accuser Tara Reade and future survivors of sexual assault to ensure President Trump does not get reelected. One America's Emily Finn takes a look at that piece.
A woman who previously accused Biden of unwanted touching says he also assaulted her in a Capitol Hill office building back in 1993.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is expected to address a recent allegation of sexual assault on Friday. The former vice president has been facing pressure to respond to an accusation made last year by a woman who worked in his office when he was a senator. Tara Reade originally accused Biden of touching her neck and shoulders in the '90s. She later changed her story to include sexual assault. CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns joins CBSN's Elaine Quijano with more.
