The New York Times reported Wednesday that during a dinner party in New York a few months ago, the "Girls" star told guests at the apartment of HBO's chief executive that she was disturbed by efforts on the part of the Clintons to discredit women who had accused the former president of sexual assault.

Dunham declined to comment to the newspaper for the report, which cited unidentified sources. A spokeswoman for the actress told the Times that Dunham "fully" supports Hillary Clinton and "her track record of protecting women" and that her dinner party comments had been mischaracterized. 
 
The actress campaigned with Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire this month, wearing a sweater dress with Clinton's name on it. She also interviewed the former secretary of State in September in an effort to attract millennials, especially young female voters who make up a key support base for Clinton.
 
Clinton, who is locked in a tighter-than-expected race with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the Democratic nomination, has been the focus of attacks from Republican rival Donald Trump in recent weeks, who has charged that she served as "an enabler" of her husband's past infidelity. 

“I'm gonna let the voters decide what's relevant and not relevant in their decision as to who they're going to support," Clinton told CNN earlier this month when pressed about Trump's charge.
