Read: The contract between a private security firm and one of Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers.
On July 11, 2017, Harvey Weinstein’s attorney David Boies, of the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner, LLP, signed a contract with Black Cube, an Israeli private-intelligence agency operated by former members of Israel’s Mossad intelligence service. The contract describes Black Cube’s tactics and goals in its work for the client, identified in other documents as Weinstein. The firm’s first objective, as stated in the contract, was to uncover information that would help stop the publication of a new, negative newspaper story, which sources said was a New York Times story focussed on sexual-misconduct allegations against Weinstein. Its second objective was to obtain a manuscript of a book that sources identified as the memoir of the actress Rose McGowan, who had accused Weinstein of rape.
