Democratic Calif. Rep. Maxine Waters said Fox News host Bill O’Reilly should be arrested over the multiple allegations of sexual assault against him.
“Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail,” she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Wednesday. “It shouldn’t be, in America, that you can sexually harass women and then buy your way out because you’re rich.”
The New York Times reported last week that O’Reilly and Fox had paid out a total of $13 million to five women to settle harassment claims.
During a separate interview with the Times on Wednesday, President Trump defended the Fox News host, saying he was a “good person” and that he disagreed with O’Reilly’s decision to settle.
“I don’t think Bill did anything wrong,” Trump said.
