BILL O’REILLY ACCUSER PERQUITA BURGESS SHADY PAST, ARRESTED FOR FALSE FELONY REPORT

Posted on Updated on

 

  • According to the police document, Burgess was arrested for filing a false felony report and for violating a personal protection order

 

Earlier this year, Bill O’Reilly was fired by Fox News after accuser Perquita Burgess  claimed O’Reilly once walked past her and said, “hey, hot chocolate,” but was not looking at her when he said it(?) . This allegedly happened in 2008 while working at a temporary job at FOX News.

In April, O’Reilly got fired and Perquita got a big payoff from the company. Of course!

Via The Daily Mail:

‘He walks past and doesn’t look at me. When he said it, I didn’t respond. I was mortified because it not only was sexual, I took that as a very plantational remark. I’ve been around enough racism. Such a blatant person, with such a high profile, making me feel uncomfortable, but then not even acknowledging me as a human being.’

Newsmax reveals:

Newsmax has obtained two documents that cast doubt on Burgess’s credibility.

A Detroit Police report dated Feb. 11, 2015, documents Burgess’s arrest on charges of making a false report and obstructing a court order.

According to the police document, Burgess called authorities and alleged her boyfriend had struck her in the face with a gun. Police said when they arrived at the scene Burgess “appeared intoxicated.”

The arresting officer stated: “I asked Ms. Burgess where the gun was that she was struck with in the face, she replied there is no gun. I again asked her where the gun was, and if she had been assaulted. Ms. Burgess stated there was no gun, and he didn’t assault me!”

The boyfriend told police she had threatened him, saying she would call “the cops saying you hit me with a gun!”

According to the police document, Burgess was arrested for filing a false felony report and for violating a personal protection order

 

 

 

ERIC BOLLING SUES REPORTER YASHAR ALI FOR $50 MILLION OVER LEWD TEXTING STORY BASED ON ANONYMOUS SOURCES

Posted on Updated on

  • Yashar Ali’s story cited 14 anonymous sources corroborating allegations that Mr. Bolling sent at least two female colleagues an “unsolicited” photo of his genitals. Mr. Bolling, co-host of “Fox News Specialists,” was subsequently suspended “pending the results of an investigation.”

 

Eric Bolling hit piece by Ali Yashar on Huffington Post came after Fox News fired Bill O’Reilly last April of this year and after an unsuccessful sexual harassment accusation against Sean Hannity. The sinister mood from the liberal media at that time is to take down every Trump supporter out of Fox News.

Days after O’Reilly was fired, Sean Hannity was accused of sexual harassment by  Donna Debbie Schlussel, a former contributor to Hannity’s television show. After Hannity announced he had retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are in the process of laying out the legal course of action against Schlussel, Schlussel changed her story, LawNews reported.

 

 

Eric Bolling sues journalist Yashar Ali for $50 million over lewd texting story

By Jessica Chasmar – The Washington Times – Thursday, August 10, 2017

 

Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the Huffington Post contributor behind a story alleging Mr. Bolling sent lewd text messages to female colleagues several years ago.

Mr. Bolling filed the lawsuit Wednesday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan accusing contributing writer Yashar Ali of making misleading statements about the Fox News host’s conduct and character, according to reports.

Mr. Ali’s story that broke Friday cited 14 anonymous sources corroborating allegations that Mr. Bolling sent at least two female colleagues an “unsolicited” photo of his genitals. Mr. Bolling, co-host of “Fox News Specialists,” was subsequently suspended “pending the results of an investigation.”

“This anonymously sourced and uncorroborated story is false, defamatory, and obviously intended to destroy this good man’s career and family,” Mr. Bolling’s lawyer, Michael J. Bowe, said in a statement. “We will defend Eric aggressively in court, where actual facts, based on evidence, testimony, and cross-examination, will belie these anonymous accusations.”

Mr. Ali and the Post are standing by the story.

“Just received a summons,” Mr. Alitweeted Wednesday evening. “Eric Bolling is suing me for defamation – $50 million in damages. I stand by my reporting + will protect my sources.

“It’s important to note that Bolling’s summons does not include HuffPost – he is coming after me personally,” he wrote. “I’m a big boy…but very telling.”

The Post has vowed to support Mr. Ali financially.

Yashar Ali is a paid freelancer under contract with HuffPost. We have no hesitation about standing by him financially in this case,” tweeted the Post’s editor-in-chief, Lydia Polgreen.

Yashar Ali is a careful and meticulous reporter. We stand by his reporting,” the Post said.

Meanwhile, Mr. Bollingtweeted that he “will continue to fight against these false smear attacks! THANK YOU FOR CONTINUED SUPPORT.”

RIGGED? LAW FIRM INVESTIGATING ERIC BOLLING ‘SEXTING SCANDAL’ WAS HILLARY CLINTON FUNDRAISER, HAS OBAMA DHS HEAD AS PARTNER

Posted on

  • Paul Weiss donated $271, 970 to Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign
  • A partner in the Paul, Weiss Litigation Department, Jeh Johnson is the former Secretary of Homeland Security
  • Paul, Weiss lawyers have played key roles in facilitating the release of Guantanamo inmates

 

Washington Free Beacon reports:

The firm, Paul, Weiss, has long been tied to the Clinton family, with its employees donating hundreds of thousands to its political campaigns and later cashing in on political appointments in the government.

The Nov. 19 fundraiser, which is being billed as a “conversation with Hillary,” is currently being promoted on the Democratic presidential candidate’s website and costs attendees $2,700 per ticket.

The event is being held as the issue of Guantanamo prison returns to the political spotlight following renewed calls by the Obama administration to shutter the prison and transfer the remaining prisoners to the United States.

Paul, Weiss lawyers have played key roles in facilitating the release of inmates accused of committing acts of terrorism.

 

The law firm employs former DHS Head under Obama, Jeh Johnson.

New York Times wrote:

Jeh C. Johnson, who has stepped down as secretary of Homeland Security, is rejoining the New York law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, where he formerly worked. He will be a partner in the firm’s litigation department.

Mr. Johnson, 59, has worked intermittently at Paul, Weiss, returning four times after stints in public service, including three presidential appointments that required Senate confirmation. He led the Department of Homeland Security for three years, overseeing counterterrorism, cybersecurity, border security and immigration law administration and enforcement. The New York Times reported in 2015 that he gave legal approval for American forces to enter Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden.

Mr. Johnson served from 2009 to 2012 as general counsel of the Defense Department, where he was a primary legal architect of the military’s counterterrorism efforts under the Obama administration. In 2010, he was an author of a Defense Department report that paved the way for the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy by Congress.

 

 

According to the firm:

A partner in the Paul, Weiss Litigation Department, Jeh Johnson is the former Secretary of Homeland Security. Secretary Johnson advises clients, including management teams and boards of directors, on crisis management, government and internal investigations, high-stakes litigation and regulatory matters, and legal aspects of cybersecurity and other security matters. His legal career has encompassed both private law practice and public service, including three Senate-confirmed presidential appointments. He is resident in both the New York and Washington, D.C. offices.

ERIC BOLLING ACCUSER CAROLINE HELDMAN ALSO ACCUSED O’REILLY AND FOX PRODUCER WOODY FRASER WHO ALLEGEDLY STOLE ‘THE FIVE’ IDEA FROM HER

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Eric Bolling’s accuser Caroline Heldman is a left-wing anti-Trump professor, Fox News contributor from 2008-2001, who also accused Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment
  • Heldman claims Fox producer Woody Fraser stole her ‘idea for a show that would become The Five’
  • Claims Fraser  ‘dangled a contributorship and a hosting position for a sexual relationship; then stopped my appearances when I didn’t acquiesce to his advances.’
  • Claim: “Fraser took me under his wing as a mentor; constantly pressured me for a relationship and sex”
  • Heldman: Bolling referred to me as “Dr. McHottie” on air on four different occasions, and called me “smart, beautiful, and wrong” on air twice.
  • Bolling’s lawyer : “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”
  • Fox News spokesperson: “Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway.”

Big League Politics reports:

Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling’s first public accuser is a major left-wing activist who held a protest sign at President Trump’s inauguration accusing the president of being a rapist.

Caroline Heldman, an Occidental College professor who appeared on Fox News, reportedly “filed a sexual harassment complaint just hours before Fox News announced O’Reilly’s departure,” according to People magazine.

Now, she is back to accuse Eric Bolling, a major Trump supporter at the network. Here is Philly.com’s report:

Hours after Fox News announced it was suspending Bolling, Caroline Heldman, a politics professor at Occidental College and frequent guest on the network from 2008 to 2011, claimed the Fox News host made an unspecified number of unsolicited sexual advances to her.

“[Bolling] said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go,” Heldman wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. “Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex.”

Bolling’s team is denying the accusations. Heldman’s social media profiles show her to be a staunch left-wing feminist activist.

 

 

Caroline Heldman  Facebook post about Bolling:

** Long Post, TW for Sexual Harassment**

Fox News just suspended Eric Bolling pending allegations that he sent photos of his genitalia to female colleagues. My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling’s behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years.

I did hundreds of appearances on Fox and Fox Business from 2008 – 2011, and had multiple experiences with Bolling that caused grave concern to my friends and family. Bolling referred to me as “Dr. McHottie” on air on four different occasions, and called me “smart, beautiful, and wrong” on air twice. I pushed back with “Mr. McSexist,” but I shouldn’t have had to. This on-air behavior was perfectly acceptable to Fox executives at the time.

Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have “fun.” He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go. Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex. I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.

Bolling was one of three men from whom I experienced sexual harassment and gender discrimination (the others being Bill O’Reilly and Woody Fraser).

O’Reilly was creepy in person; told me “when I was in college, professors didn’t look like you”; then called me “hysterical” during a show, edited the interview, and retaliated by never having me on his show again. http://www.msnbc.com/…/3-accusers-on-trump-s-defense-of-o-r…

Fraser took me under his wing as a mentor; constantly pressured me for a relationship and sex; took an idea for a show that would become The Five (I emailed Fraser a treatment that is remarkably similar to The Five, right down to some of the hosts, a year before The Five aired); dangled a contributorship and a hosting position for a sexual relationship; then stopped my appearances when I didn’t acquiesce to his advances. http://www.motherjones.com/…/fox-news-sexual-harassment-he…/

 

 

 

 

FOX NEWS SUSPENDED ERIC BOLLING FOR ALLEGED ‘LEWD PICTURES’, BOLLING DENIES AND WILL PURSUE LEGAL ACTIONS

Posted on

  • “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made

 

On Friday, a report surfaced about Fox News host Eric Bolling sending pictures of his “genitalia” to two co-workers years ago.

According to the report, the images were sent to women whom Bolling had worked with at the media outlet.

In response, Bolling denied the accusations against him, and his attorney, Michael J. Bowe, said in an official statement:

“Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”

As a result of the story, though, Fox News launched an investigation into the matter. It’s unclear if the media outlet found out anything else at this time. But Bolling has reportedly been suspended from his job at Fox News.
