Hice previously accused CNN anchor Don Lemon of sexual assault in 2018. Lemon allegedly forced his hand down Hice’s pants, groped him and then stuck his hand in Hice’s mustache.
Hice filed a lawsuit against the journalist shortly afterward. The case is expected to go to court next year.
Fox News reports on Hice’s latest message for CNN:
“They’re a network rife with predators and perverts,” Hice told Fox News Digital. “Lemon will have to testify under oath in the near future, but it’s good to see that there’s finally some accountability happening.”
CNN has stood by Lemon, much like the liberal network stood by Cuomo until damning revelations from the New York attorney general’s office about his involvement in protecting his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, finally forced CNN to take action. CNN also reportedly learned about a new sexual harassment allegation against Chris Cuomo, unrelated to his brother, before making the decision to terminate the “Cuomo Prime Time” namesake after months of keeping him on air amid multiple scandals.
“This is who they are. They’re a predator-protecting machine, they slander and smear victims with impunity,” Hice added.
Hice – who says he turned down multiple settlement offers – feels CNN is doing whatever it takes to protect Lemon, one of CNN’s most prominent anchors.
In an interview last month with Megyn Kelly, Hice suggested that Lemon has probably acted this way before.
