Asia Argento, who accused Harvey Weinstein of rape in Ronan Farrow's October exposé in The New Yorker, delivered a searing speech during the Cannes Film Festival's closing ceremony on Saturday, calling out the festival itself for its complicity in sexual harassment and abuse in the film industry.

"I was raped by Harvey Weinstein. ... This festival was his hunting ground."
— Asia Argento

More from Argento's speech:

  • "Even tonight, sitting among you, there are those who still need to be held accountable for their conduct against women, for behavior that does belong in this industry — does not belong in any industry or work place."
  • "You know who you are. But most importantly, we know who you are, and we're not going to allow you to get away with it any longer."

The news media has largely moved on, but foreign government officials remain fixated on John Bolton's memoir, "The Room Where It Happened."

Why it matters: Bolton's detailed inside-the-Oval revelations have raised the blood pressure of allies who were already stressed about President Trump's unreliability.
