One of NBC's leading lawyers allegedly threatened to stain Ronan Farrow if he continued to write about the dishonored Harvey Weinstein.

Sources have claimed that Susan Weiner, general counsel for NBC News, called to threaten Farrow after he left the network.

The allegations were made after the producer who worked with Farrow on Weinstein's NBC News investigation, Rich McHugh, resigned this month, according to The Daily Beast.

When Farrow left NBC News last year, he took the story of Harvey Weinstein with him, and then won a Pulitzer Prize for his stories that have played a key role in the MeToo movement.

The initial story about Weinstein was published in The New Yorker. NBC New has claimed that the story was not ready to run online, according to The Daily Beast.
