Former Fox News guest Debbie Schlussel accused Sean Hannity of sexual harassment.
Hannity issued a statement vehemently denying her claims:
“LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication. This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation. The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.”
He vowed to retain the finest and toughest lawyers in the country to proceed with the proper legal course of action.
Schlussel heard him loud and clear.
In an interview with LawNewz, Schlussel has now denied that she was ever sexually harassed by Hannity.
While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.
I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel, an attorney herself, said. Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.
“He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly,” she said on the radio program. Schlussel later clarified that it wasn’t his hotel room, but rather his hotel. She told LawNewz.com that she did go on the show following the incident, but after that was “banned from Fox News.”
“I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked,” Schlussel said.
Schlussel is well known for blowing up stories and making sensational statements. And you don’t have to go far to look. On her blog, Schlussel once called Robin Wiliams “selfish” for committing suicide.
Now that we have that out of the way, the liberals can go back to reporting how Russia has Trump in their pocket.
If it’s not one silly story, it has to be another.
