Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said Monday that his investigative team has found “an amazing amount of things” about those who have accused him of sexual harassment.
O’Reilly left Fox after a number of sexual harassment allegations but has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal. Newsmax reported on Sunday that one of his accusers was arrested in 2015 for filing a false police report about an alleged assault.
“When I left Fox News I told my audience that no one was mistreated on my watch for 20 years and that this was a political hit job–well-financed, well-organized, and that is the truth,” O’Reilly said about the Newsmax report during a Monday interview with WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall.” “So I immediately hired an investigative team and we’ve come up with an amazing amount of things and I applaud Newsmax.com for their investigation and coming up with what they came up with,” he said. “And now over the next few months we will start to tell the American people what a political hit job is and how dangerous this is to our democracy.”
