Angelina Jolie Spotted For First Time Amid Feud With Convicted Rapist Harvey Weinstein Over Alleged Assault, Poses With Capitol Police Months After Riot
Angelina Jolie headed to the Capitol in her first appearance since speaking out in detail about an alleged assault involving convicted rapist and predator Harvey Weinstein.
The 46-year-old actress looked ready for business in Washington, D.C., to meet with Chuck Schumer to discuss FBI reform, but not before stopping to pose with Capitol police.
Covering her red carpet curves in a black pencil skirt with a matching blazer. Keeping it chic to address the Senate majority leader, Angelina showed her appreciation to one officer, Harry Dunn, who risked his life during the January 6 Capitol riot.
Dunn was one of the officers who testified in Congress that rioters physically assaulted him and spewed racial slurs in his direction. He also lost five of his officer friends following the riot, including Brian Sicknick.
Sicknick died after suffering two strokes one day after fending off Capitol rioters.
Officers Gunther Hashida, Jeffrey Smith, Howard Liebengood, and Kyle deFreytag took their lives after the January incident.
In the photo, captured by NBC journalist Julie Tsirkin, Angelina is seen with her mask on while standing next to a smiling Dunn, dressed in his uniform.
"Angelina Jolie greeted several officers who defended the Capitol on January 6, including Harry Dunn," Julie captioned the photo. "She thanked him for his service."

Jolie's visit to the Capitol marks the first time she's been seen since describing in detail the alleged assault that took place with Weinstein.
Speaking out to The Guardian, the award-winning actress claimed the disgraced movie mogul made “unwanted advances on her in a hotel room."
“I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did," she continued, adding, “If you get yourself out of the room, you think he attempted but didn’t, right? The truth is that the attempt and the experience of the attempt is an assault."
Jolie claimed, "It was beyond a pass, it was something I had to escape. I stayed away and warned people about him."
Weinstein quickly fired back, alleging the actress was exaggerating the alleged incident in an attempt to sell her book.
"THERE WAS NEVER an assault, and NEVER an attempt to assault. It is brazenly untrue and clickbait publicity," his assistant told Radar. "It's very clear to me that this is for more sales on Angie's BOOK. It's a more attractive book sale if she mentions the infamous movie producer that may have shown interest in her."
As for Jolie, she also took shots at her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. She claims he went against her wishes and worked with Weinstein despite being aware of her past with the producer.
