A terrifying expose alleged that Harvey Weinstein used an 'army of spies' to dig up dirt on the actresses and journalists he feared would expose him.
Ronan Farrow, whose previous report forThe New Yorker unearthed decades of sexual abuse allegations against the powerful Hollywood producer, has revealed the frightening lengths to which Weinstein went to silence his accusers.
The Miramax producer hired Black Cube, run by former Israeli intelligence officers of Mossad, and Kroll, one of the biggest global corporate-intelligence firms, to gather details about the personal lives and sexual histories of dozens of actresses and journalists.

Weinstein or the agencies also hired their own journalists to interview accusers and alleged victims to find out what their claims against him were.
Agents went through journalists' personal lives, even profiling their ex-wives, to try and find information to discredit them.
Weinstein allegedly tricked an ex-employee into revealing a list of her old colleagues who would be open to contributing to a book about the 'good old days' at Miramax. When she provided the list, he forced her to call them in front of him to see who had spoken to the press.
The producer conducted much of his investigations with his secret intelligence agencies through his lawyers so they'd be protected by attorney-client privilege.
Weinstein also used several other private security firms including the Los Angeles-based agency PSOPS to investigate those who threatened to expose him.
The agencies deployed secret operatives to 'target' stars such as Rose McGowan, who would later become Weinstein's most vocal accuser, Farrow reports.
One agent even posed as a woman's right activist to lull McGowan into discussing her claims.
