The photo, deleted within half an hour after being posted, showed Clinton and her former campaign aide Huma Abedin with Weinstein at the 100th anniversary gala for Planned Parenthood last year, according to the New York Daily News

Flynn's son, Michael Flynn Jr., told the Daily News that his father's tweet, which was captioned "DGfffcf" was the result of a hack, and said they are "currently addressing" the matter. 

Clinton's political connection to Weinstein, a major Democratic donor, came under intense scrutiny last year amid allegations of the producer's serial harassment of actresses. Clinton later pledged to donate campaign contributions from Weinstein to charity. 

 

Weinstein surrendered himself to New York police Friday morning, and agreed to stay in the country as he faces charges of rape and sexual harassment. He pleaded not guilty. 

Flynn, who briefly served in the Trump administration in 2017, has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials during the presidential transition and has agreed to cooperate with the special counsel investigating Russia's meddling in the election.
