WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters says Fox News host Bill O’Reilly “needs to go to jail” over sexual harassment allegations.

The Democratic congresswoman from California told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes during a Wednesday appearance that it’s “all catching up with O’Reilly” and described the situation at Fox News as a “sexual harassment enterprise.” The New York Times has reported that O’Reilly and his employer have paid $13 million to five women to settle allegations he mistreated them. O’Reilly hasn’t admitted any wrongdoing.

Waters also criticized President Donald Trump for defending the Fox News star, saying his words of support are “coming out of the mouth of someone who has said some terrible things about women.” She calls O’Reilly and Trump “two of a kind.”

O’Reilly was forced to apologize last week for a glib remark about Waters’ hair.

Fox News didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Maxine, you should keep your mouth shut before someone brings some dirt regarding business deals you’ve made. Try working to make your constituents lives better. That’s what they sent you to Congress to do.

      Are you serious? Just how many lives has B.O. made better? I was venture to say none at this point, but I can tell you whose lives he made worse, starting with these women. Oh but that $13M minus their lawyers fees are about to change their circumstances. In the words of Marvelous Walter Hawkins “Oh HAPPY DAY!”

    HAHAHAHAHAAH Mad Maxine Waters calling for someone to go to jail?
    How much time did she spend in jail when she was under investigation from ethics committee for funneling gov. funds to her husband’s failing bank how much did they have to pay out, sure there maybe something there but pay-outs aren’t and admission of guilt just ask Wal-mart GM ANY Insurance Company and people do bring frivolous lawsuits just ask Al Sharpton’s daughter, Miss Waters had her day in Court Bill will have his

    As for Oreilly, Bill Oreilly is getting his own dirt back regardless if these latest claims or true or false or half true. He judged others high profile cases of the people being guilty even when those cases were PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW to be on the defendant’s side. See why you can not throw stones.

    I love Ms. Waters but a person can not go to jail just on allegations, there has to be charges (which can get a person arrested). Then go to trial to prove who is telling the truth or not. Although I believe Foxnews did alot of this stuff based solely on the fact that Roger Ailias step down which is very telling more than anything (You can not judge settlements only because people settle for different reasons even if they are innocent. Every case is different; now regardless if that is the case here).

      With Clinton, a lot of those women had affairs with Clinton and then turn around and made claims. Monica was WILLING participate in hers. With Foxnews, those women SIGNED agreements that make it hard for them to sue Foxnews and many go ahead and get a settlement because they are in a “executive agreement”. So, at this company, the way it is written, if they have an complaint, they can get a settlement and avoid court. This is why I say, “settlements mean different things and people do settlements for different reasons regardless if they are innocent or not. Not everyone who settle in guilty. In the case of Foxnews, they look guilty due to Roger A stepping down and Bill is on tape back in 2004 for this same thing. That was PROVEN on TAPE.
