Gutierrez, who was 22 at the time of the alleged assault, then met Weinstein at a hotel while wearing a wire.

An excerpt of that recording has been published by The New Yorker.

In it, a man the publication identifies as Weinstein appears to be inviting a woman named as Gutierrez into a hotel room, while she hesitates.

At one point she asks: “Why yesterday (did) you touch my breast?”

The man replies: “Oh please, I’m sorry, just come on in. I’m used to that. Come on. Please.”

The investigation did not lead to criminal charges being filed.

Here is the transcript:

On Tuesday, the Hollywood producer was accused of rape by three women.

A statement released on his behalf said: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein.”
