The latest fold in the case against defamed Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, is 40 emails that he alleges completely prove his innocence.

The law team behind Weinstein have officially filed legal documents filled with online transactions that show apparent consent. While the emails are not to be released to the public, Weinstein's lawyers claim that these 40 statements prove the Hollywood mogul did not rape the plaintiff, rather showed affection, according to TMZ

This new evidence could completely dismantle the case against Weinstein if proven that the New York District Attorney knew of the emails but did not submit them as evidence, which warrants dismissal of the indictment.

There were alleged steps taken to block these emails from being used as evidence, according to TMZ. "We're told Weinstein did not use a personal email, but rather one from The Weinstein Company and, when he was fired, the company wouldn't give him access to the account. His lawyers got access, but the bankruptcy judge issued a protective order prohibiting them from disseminating the emails," the website reported. 

Weinstein still faces two separate criminal indictments outside of these charges.
