Eric Bolling joined MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss the death of his son Eric Chase and his departure from Fox News.


Bolling has done several interviews with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough since his son’s passing, but Brezinzksi opted not to ask him about leaving Fox out of respect for the mourning process. During an interview on Tuesday, she did not hold back and questioned him directly about allegations that he sexually harassed female Fox colleagues.

“I do feel it’s time to address some things, kind of uncomfortable, allegations that made a lot of news before you left Fox News,” Brzezinski said. “There were allegations of sending lewd texts, then you were suspended from Fox, then a few hours later there was an allegation of sexual harassment, maybe more, and then you sued.”

Bolling explained that when he left Fox News the network released a statement indicating that he left “amicably” and not because of the sexual harassment allegations.

“Are any of the allegations true?” Brezizinski asked.

“An agreement that you make [when separating] is to not discuss it any further for a period of time,” Bolling replied. “I am still under that agreement and I don’t want to violate the agreement but I certainly would love to be able to talk about it…and there will be a day.”

Bolling added that he is a “good person” and that he doubts his wife would stand by him if the accusations were true.
