Lawsuit: Fox News chairman Roger Ailes may have committed federal crime

The chairman of Fox News may have committed a federal crime, according to legal documents filed by attorneys for a former News Corporation employee.

Affidavits filed in a lawsuit against a former News Corporation employee say that News Corp. executive Roger Ailes advised former publishing executive Judith Regan to lie to federal investigators about an affair she had with Bernard B. Kerik.

Kerik, a longtime ally of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was at the time being vetted as the next possible Homeland Security secretary.

Ailes’s goal in asking Regan to lie about the affair was meant to help protect Giuliani’s presidential ambitions, The New York Times noted in its coverage of the allegations.

Better still, Regan taped their conversation, the affidavits claim.

After being fired in 2006, Regan filed a wrongful termination suit against former employer HarperCollins, claiming that her tenure was ended because an executive at parent company News Corp. had asked her to lie. While she did not reveal who applied that pressure, she said it was to help protect Giuliani’s reputation.

Mere weeks after the suit was filed, News Corp. settled for $10.75 million.

The allegations against Ailes, and details about Regan’s maneuvering, were made public recently in documents filed by Regan’s former attorneys, who were documenting their work on her behalf to petition for additional fees.

In the document, attorney Brian C. Kerr remarked that the Fox executive in question had “advised Regan to lie to, and to withhold information from, investigators concerning Kerik.”

Withholding relevant information from federal investigators is a federal crime.

It was unclear, however, if Ailes would be pursued following the revelations. Daniel C. Richman, a Columbia University law professor and former federal prosecutor, told the Times that cases of this nature “are not necessarily easy cases to make.”

Kerik, the former New York City Police Commissioner, backed out of his appointment to lead the DHS after concerns were raised about his business dealings and alleged connections to organized crime. Giuliani testified in 2006 that he had been briefed on Kerik’s suspicious background as early as the summer of 2000.

Kerik was indicted on 16 different charges in 2007, with prosecutors alleging that he accepted $255,000 in apartment renovations from a firm seeking business opportunities in New York. He was also charged with trying to hide the improvements from the IRS. The indictment also claimed he made false statements to the White House.

He was sentenced to four years in prison early last year.

At the time Kerik’s indictment was announced, it made the front page of every New York newspaper but one: the News Corp.-owned New York Post.

    News Corp-owned New York Post. Who could that be? Hmmm I wonder. Do you think the guy who told Regan to lie to our sacred justice system could by some chance be connected to News Corp? That guy, what’s his name, Roger somebody, no no it’s something Ailes, it someone who does propaganda for Fox Fraud News that much I know.

    Every New York paper but one. That one paper, the favorite of all Republicans, that one paper that Republicans love. And if you told a Republican Kerik was indicted they would call you a liar because they didn’t see it in that one paper. And if you show them the other papers the Republicans will blow off as Liberal media bias.

    Keirk indicted. It never happened.

    So once again, I need to get this right: If a corporate head tells one of his employees to lie to the feds in an active investigation, that isn’t necessarily something that the feds want to prosecute, but if I have a bag of weed in my car, I can get jail time? And yet, I’m STILL supposed to believe that we have a system of laws?

    Ailes is a fucking crook, it’s been apparently proven in a court of law, there was a judgment against him and the corporation, and yet, no charges? WTF, OVER? Goddamn, it’s time for that revolution after all. And Ailes should be one of the FIRST people strung up from a light pole. Followed by whatever DOJ miscreant it is that DOESN’T push charges.

    It pisses the hell out of me that we get screwed, and yet if you have money, no charges, no problem, no foul. If the right wants to know what it is that CAUSES revolution all they have to do is look in the goddamned mirror. The fault lies THERE 100%.

  • Anonymous

    Funny, the feds don’t see it that way. And this was a bold faced LIE he was telling her to commit. It’s called PERJURY, and it’s illegal. You can’t have honesty in gov’t without holding people to a level of honesty. I personally think that Faux should be shut down for lying under the guise of news, but the courts have even said they have a RIGHT to lie. So why expect anything BUT lying and BS from the get go?

    I’m sure Ailes is guilty of this and much more. But I seriously doubt he will ever be punished. The rich don’t go to jail or get punished. Now if that was some peon he would probably be on death row right now! We all know ailes and people of that ilk play these games and will do what they have to do to protect their interests. I really wish it would come to a public trial and humiliation and a hard sentence. But reality sets in and I know it won’t play out that way.

    heck if any of these elitist billionaire rulers get caught and actually convicted they can always “die” the way Ken Lay probably did and get a new identity with the same old cayman/swiss accounts.

    The only way I’ll ever believe ‘ol Ken Lay died when they said he did is if he were about to turn states evidence and was offed by the people who would get in trouble. He had been convicted and was about to be sentenced when he “died”, which is EXACTLY the time when states evidence reduced sentence bargains are usually struck.

    Democrats don’t go for the jugular & they’re wusses, so Ailes will walk like all the others. If the democrats had the acquiantance of C.O. JONES, George H.W. Bush would have been prosecuted for his involvement in the Iran/Contra matter, the BCCI scandal would have been traced out regardless of how many fellow dems. were involved, & of course, we’d have had real investigations into the JFK, MLK, RFK, JFK Jr., 9/11, Iraq war, and wall street meltdown scandals that would put virtually the entire military high command and wall street banker/financiar in jail.

    You are still missing proof of intent. Regan would have been the material party, not Ailes, if she had lied to a federal investigator about a “material” fact.

    It is a totally different kind of proof in a “word” crime of deception as opposed to intent in a bank robbery or conspiracy to commit murder.

    As I told you, perjury is almost never pursued and this is when the primary perjurer was even under OATH.

    The $10.75 million was paid to Regan to protect Ailes’ fat ass by settling her lawsuit, and in effect, buying her silence. And now he’s being exposed anyway. Not charged with any crime, just exposed. I see this as a maneuver by the Obummer admin as a message to Rupert, that a proverbial gun can be put to the head of any one of them (that is, the threat of federal charges, public disgrace, etc.) including the head of the snake, Rupert himself.

    How did these allegations come to be known?

    “The allegations against Ailes, and details about Regan’s maneuvering, were made public recently in documents filed by Regan’s former attorneys, who were documenting their work on her behalf to petition for additional fees.”

    Because Regan’s former attorney’s are petitioning the court for more money, and somebody noticed that these documents were filed. Typical greedy lawyers? Or something else going on here?

    No, because although I haven’t heard the tape, his motive “according to her” was to keep collateral damage to a minimum about Kerik. And it no doubt was.

    But he is not lying to a federal investigator. She has a free will to do whatever she wanted. He could say he wanted to see if she would incriminate “herself” and had his own witness to the conversation. Was she looking for money? Was she going to blackmail him? Why did she record the tape? Was she looking for revenge?

    Those are only a few examples.

    Proof of a crime here and the odds of conviction, or even charges, would be monumental. I wish it was different. Even hope I would be wrong.

    A recorded conversation between yourself and one other person is pretty much legal in many states and also admissable in court, as long as you aren’t lying and as long as you aren’t taping a conversation between two other people. However, that is if you don’t pay off the judge and jury or DA so you don’t even have to go to court. If you plan on doing that, I’d check with the state you are in when you do the recording.
