REVEALED: Trump-loving CNN pundit Paris Dennard was once fired for sexual harassment

Published

on

Days after being praised by the president, pro-Trump CNN commentator Paris Dennard’s past firing for sexual harassment at an old job has been revealed.

The Washington Post reported that Dennard was fired from a job at Arizona State University four years ago for making “sexually explicit comments and gestures toward women,” according to documents from the school.

According to the report, ASU’s internal investigation concluded that the Trump surrogate expressed sexual interest in a woman and recent graduate who worked under him.

Dennard, the internal investigation continued, “pretended to unzip his pants in her presence, tried to get her to sit on his lap, and made masturbatory gestures.” He didn’t dispute the claims but said they were done so in jest.

An ASU official confirmed the veracity of the report to the Post.

In email correspondences with the Post, Dennard said he “cannot comment on items I have never seen regarding allegations I still believe to be false.”

He added that the story is “another politically motivated attempt to besmirch my character, and shame me into silence for my support of President Trump and the GOP.”

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
