David Boies gave Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. a donation of $10,000 after Mr. Vance chose not to press sexual assault charges against Harvey Weinstein according to the International Business Times. Just recently, Mr. Vance admitted to recei ving a donation from President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, after he helped Ivanka and Donald Trump, Jr. avoid real estate fraud charges.

David Boies donated to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance after the office declined to press sexual assault charges against Harvey Weinstein.

Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer delivered $10,000 to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. in 2015, in the months after Vance’s office decided not to prosecute Weinstein over sexual assault allegations, according to an International Business Times review of campaign finance documents. That contribution from attorney David Boies — who previously headlined a fundraiser for Vance — was a fraction of the more than $182,000 that Boies, his son and his law partners have delivered to the Democrat during his political career.

Marc Kasowitz, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, donated $25,000 to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. after Mr. Vance decline to press real estate fraud charges against Ivanka and Donald Trump, Jr.

The revelations about the dropped Weinstein investigation come on the heels of a recent report documenting how Vance declined to prosecute Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. after Trump’s attorney Marc Kasowitz gave Vance’s campaign $25,000. According to ProPublica, Kasowitz made the donation, then met with Vance directly and then Vance dropped the case, overruling his own prosecutors.
