NEW YORK (AP) — A television network has aired video of Harvey Weinstein fondling a woman who accused him of rape.

The video aired Wednesday by Sky News was recorded by Melissa Thompson when she met Weinstein at his office in 2011.

It shows Weinstein propositioning Thompson and caressing her shoulder during a business presentation.

The video shows Thompson reacting with discomfort but also joking about his advances, saying that "data is hot."

In a lawsuit filed in June, Thompson said Weinstein raped her that evening at a hotel.

Only portions of the video were aired on Sky.

Weinstein's lawyer says the full video "demonstrates that there is nothing forceful" and shows "casual, if not awkward, flirting from both parties."

Weinstein has been charged in New York with assaulting three women, but not Thompson.
