Scope of Federal Probe into Fox News Broadens

“Federal authorities have interviewed current and former Fox News employees and on-air talent in a widening inquiry into the nature of sexual-harassment settlements and alleged intimidation tactics at the network, according to people familiar with the probe.

Prosecutors at the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan and criminal investigators from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service have spoken to women who accused Roger Ailes, former Fox News chairman and chief executive, of sexual harassment, the people familiar with the probe said. These women included current on-air contributor Julie Roginsky and Laurie Luhn, former director of corporate and special events.

Former Fox News communications chief Brian Lewis, once a top aide to Mr. Ailes, was also subpoenaed and met with investigators earlier this spring, the people said.

U.S. investigators have focused on how settlement payments over sexual-harassment accusations were structured at Fox News and which executives helped engineer them, people familiar with the matter said. But in their questioning, prosecutors also have shown an interest in alleged intimidation tactics authorized by Mr. Ailes, including the hiring of a private investigator to dig up negative information on women who complained, according to one of the people familiar with the probe”
