Sky News WEINSTEIN: unearthed video from 2011 appears to show the film mogul proposition a woman (Pic: Sky News) "That's too high. Give it to me", he says in the video.

In response to the footage, Weinstein's lawyer has released a statement which reads: "Several respected journalists and trustworthy individuals have seen the entire video". "Brafman says, ". the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual - if not awkward - flirting from both parties". She told Sky News, "I worked in Wall Street before I went to business school, and I worked in an environment that was heavily male dominated..."

Thompson also rejected critics who said she encouraged Weinstein's behavior.

Instead it recorded an excruciating encounter with the man who now faces criminal charges of sexual assault in a NY court, as well as scores... She says that upon arrival, she was ushered into an empty office where she turned on her laptop's video camera, intending to use the live footage she was shooting as part of her demonstration.

He continues, "It (the video) was produced by Ms. Thompson to bolster her position in a civil lawsuit seeking money. It's okay. Would you like to do it some more?"

Prosecutors argue they do not have the responsibility to turn over the emails because Weinstein could have given testimony about the alleged relationship himself, which he did not do. "A little high. That's a little high".

Out on $1 million bail after having plead not guilty to the first round of indictment and having surrendered his passport earlier this summer, Weinstein is set to be back in Justice Burke's Manhattan courtroom on September 20.

In the footage, Weinstein invites Thompson to join him at the Tribeca Grand Hotel lobby restaurant.

"It wasn't an invitation to go to his hotel room".

Thompson told Sky News: "Now I see he's trying, in any way he can, to move me into that zone of comfortable then uncomfortable and confused, and vulnerable, and recognizing that he's powerful and I'm not, and that I need this deal from him, and he has the power to give it to me". "He cornered me over and over again", Thompson said. "It was an invitation to come to a hotel lobby that was within blocks of the office and so that to me felt much safer than being alone with him in his office", she said. The then 28-year-old said she also recorded the interaction as part of her demo. "This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter". However, she said when she arrived, he led her up to her room and raped her. That is where she accuses him of raping her.

So far, over 80 women have accused the producer of sexual misconduct, assault or rape.
