According to the NY Daily News

Feds probing Fox News Channel for not disclosing sex harassment payouts, attorney for Ailes accuser says

The feds are conducting an “ongoing criminal investigation” of Fox News Channel and whether Rupert Murdoch’s company hid from investors the payments it made to employees who alleged they were sexually harassed, an attorney alleged in court Wednesday.

The rest of the fun stuff:

What? Jefferson Beauregard Sessions hasn't yet ridden to the rescue and fired all Federal attorneys involved?
Trump delenda est.

His in-tray is a bit full at the moment. Draining the swamp for Mr President, you know.

Remember that U.S. Attorney that Trump asked to stay on who just got canned? Well guess who was the one investigating Fox News. Hmmmmmmmm.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara was pursuing multiple investigations relating to criminal charges against Fox News when he was fired on Saturday, according to Media Matters.

Bharara was reportedly following multiple lines of investigation against the conservative network, including the slew of sexual harassment allegations leveled against ousted CEO Roger Ailes and a pervasive culture of sexual harassment and bullying of women workers by men.

The U.S. Attorney’s office for the southern district of New York is one of the busiest and most powerful in the country and was tasked with investigating accusations that the network spied on and surveilled its employees and that Ailes failed to disclose to shareholders that the company was paying millions of dollars to multiple women to keep them silent about their experiences with on-the-job sexual harassment.


Sound awful? You ain't read nothin' yet.

The attorney predicted to be nominated for Bharara’s position is a former member of Rupert Murdoch’s personal legal team, Marc Mukasey. Murdoch is a part owner of NewsCorp, the company that owns Fox News.

Mukasey was one of the crisis team summoned to Roger Ailes’ home in upstate New York when news broke of Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment suit against Fox and its then-CEO.

The rot and corruption of the Trump administration goes ever deeper.
