Harvey Weinstein is seen getting handsy and flirting with a woman in a new video … the same woman accusing him of rape.  

In footage released Wednesday, Weinstein is seen hugging, touching and making suggestive comments during a business meeting in New York with Melissa Thompson. Thompson is a major player in the class action lawsuit against the fallen producer. 

The clip starts with Weinstein entering the room and telling someone off camera not to interrupt … he then closes and locks the door behind him.

Thompson is clearly uncomfortable throughout the video, at one place telling Weinstein his hands were moving too far up her leg. 

In a lawsuit filed in June, Thompson alleged Weinstein raped her in a hotel the same day the video was shot. 

Weinstein’s attorney, Benjamin Brafman, tells us others have seen the full video … and it tells a different story. Brafman says, “… the video, when viewed in its entirety, in context and not in select excerpts, demonstrates that there is nothing forceful, but casual – if not awkward – flirting from both parties.”

He continues, “It (the video) was produced by Ms. Thompson to bolster her position in a civil lawsuit seeking money. Any suggestion of sexual misconduct is false. This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr. Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it. Facts do matter.“
