Weinstein contributed $46,350 to Clinton during her presidential candidacy, as well as to HILLPAC, a committee Clinton used to support other Democrats while she was a senator, according to The Associated Press.
Clinton appeared at the university as part of a tour promoting her new book "What Happened", about the 2016 campaign.
More allegations against Weinstein emerged on Tuesday, as The New Yorker reported that three women claimed he had raped them, and the Times reported a new slew of allegations from high-profile figures including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie. On Sunday, he was sacked from the company he co-founded, the Weinstein Company.
A high-profile donor in the Democratic Party, Weinstein has contributed more $20,000 to Clinton's campaigns since she ran for U.S. Senate in NY in 1999, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized.
The former presidential candidate began her remarks by offering her sympathy for those impacted by the wildfires throughout wine country and her gratitude to the first responders.
Several Democrats announced their intention to return donations received from Weinstein or donate them to charity in the wake of the Times report. Other notable Democrats for whom Weinstein raised large sums of money - including Obama - have also not publicly addressed the allegations. But this appearance at Rutgers is notable as it comes on the heels of the sexual harassment allegations being made against Weinstein - a longtime Democratic Party supporter and donor.
