A vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, Bolling wrote a March op-ed accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation's health care system.

"Well you would send some salacious material, ostensibly from one of their popular co-hosts or hosts and you'd send it out and then get it publicized and then you have some woman complain that she had gotten this salacious material from this particular co-host", he said Monday in a monologue on CBN, referring to the latest sexual harassment scandal involving Eric Bolling, the co-host of "Fox News Specialists" and "Cashin' In". "Thank you. I look forward to clearing my name asap".

A story published Friday by Huffington Post alleges that Bolling, 54, "sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message" to three female colleagues several years ago. According to CNN, Bolling's name and face have since been removed from the Twitter and Facebook pages of "The Fox News Specialists".

The allegations against Bolling are the latest sexual harassment claims against high-ranking employees of Fox News. Anybody could send a salacious piece of literature and say it came from Sean Hannity or it came from this one or it came from the other one.

In an August 6 article, CNN reported that Bolling's attorney said Bolling "denies the claims" that he sent "lewd photos" to co-workers and that Bolling "may return once the investigation is complete".

Trump Lashes Out at Blumenthal: "He Was a Phony Vietnam Con Artist"
The senator admitted in 2010 to misrepresenting his military service after saying he had been "in" Vietnam . The president took three tweets to criticize Blumenthal. "That investigation must be pursued".

Huff Post said they had spoken to 14 sources linked to Fox News and Fox Business to verify the story, but all of them wanted to remain anonymous because they either work at the network or are at risk of breaching confidentiality agreements.

"Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway", the network said in a statement on Saturday.

The late-show host commented that people are attacking Bolling as a hypocrite after he made comments expressing disgust about former NY lawmaker Anthony Weiner's sex scandals.

"Once, he took me up to his office in NY", she continued, "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". If any Fox executives are reading this, please include make-up artists in your assessment of the environment.

Former Fox anchors Megyn Kelly and Andrea Tantaros also accused Mr Ailes, who died aged 77 in May, of sexual harassment following his shock departure.
