Brafman said that he speaks to Weinstein about 20 times a day and describes him as “lonely and angry” at times. He pointed out that Weinstein lost his job and his family over the accusations.
As for whether he thinks Weinstein will be indicted on charges in any of the current investigations, Brafman told the BBC, “I hope not and I don’t know.”
He added that he worries about Weinstein’s ability “to get a fair trial.”
He acknowledged that his client may have behaved inappropriately, but says he did nothing illegal.
“We are not attempting to demonstrate that Harvey Weinstein behaved elegantly throughout his professional business,” he said.
