Hillary Clinton said Wednesday she will give the campaign donation she received from Harvey Weinstein to charity.

Asked by CNN's Fareed Zakaria if she planned to return Weinstein's donation to her failed presidential effort, she replied, "Well, there's no one to give it back to."

She then added, "What other people are saying, what my fellow colleagues are saying, is that they’re going to donate it to charity and of course I will do that."

Clinton came under fire for not quickly criticizing the media mogul amid a growing sexual misconduct scandal. On Tuesday, she issued a statement saying, she was "shocked and appalled" by the allegations.

"I was just sick. I was shocked. I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way," Clinton told Zakaria. "Like so many people who have come forward and spoken out, this was a different side to a person that I and many others had known in the past."

Asked if she would have considered Weinstein a friend, Clinton said, "Yes, I probably would have. And so would many others. People in Democratic politics for many decades appreciated his help and support. I think these stories coming to light now, and people who never spoke out before having the courage to speak out, just clearly demonstrates that this behavior he engaged in cannot be tolerated and cannot be overlooked."
