Trump had his own run-in with sexual harassment accusations in October, after an "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which he said he grabbed women by their genitals.

"I don't think Bill did anything wrong".
When Fox CEO Roger Ailes was under scrutiny and later forced to resign, Trump continued to maintain his innocence and stand by the aggressor, even as it threatened his presidential ambitions.
Nine months after Ailes' departure, Fox News is facing mounting public pressure from accusers, advertisers and women's rights groups to go further in addressing the allegations against O'Reilly.More news: Melanie Brown Granted Restraining Order Against Stephen Belafonte For Alleged Domestic Abuse
