    Chelsea Clinton runs from questions about handing back Harvey Weinstein’s tainted $250,000 donations

    Chelsea Clinton fled to her car to avoid answering questions from a DailyMail.com reporter on Saturday about whether the Clinton Foundation will return up to $250,000 in donations from accused rapist Harvey Weinstein.


    The former first daughter, who is a board member of the Clinton Foundation, ran from questions while she was attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event in Northeastern University in Boston.

    The night before, Clinton Foundation press officials blocked a DailyMail.com reporter attempting to approach Bill Clinton to ask him questions at a public event.

    Bill and Chelsea were at Northeastern University to chair the Clinton Global Initiative University’s annual student conference.

    A number of Democratic politicians and groups, including the University of Southern California, have said they will return donations from Weinstein after he was accused of sexual assault, harassment or rape by over two dozen women.

    Hillary Clinton said earlier this week she would return Weinstein’s donations to her 2016 campaign. The disgraced movie producer gave over $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and $5,400 to Hillary for America.

    But the Clinton Foundation has declined to comment on whether it will return Weinstein’s donations. Weinstein has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the foundation, according to its records.

    The Foundation declines to come clean on how much individual donors give.

    ‘Chelsea, will the foundation give back the donations from Harvey Weinstein?’ a DailyMail.com reporter asked Chelsea as she left a CGI lunch event through a side door on Saturday. ‘Do you plan to return the $100,000?’

    Chelsea, flanked by Clinton Foundation officials, looked straight ahead and ignored the questions as she scurried through the side lot and ducked into her waiting black sedan. Security blocked the reporter from approaching her car.

    Earlier in the day, Chelsea had ducked the same questions from DailyMail.com after her car dropped her off at the front of the building. When she left the event, Chelsea departed through the isolated side door as her car idled next to it, seemingly to give her a chance to flee quickly.
