Brian Lewis, that former "right-hand man" to Fox News chief Roger Ailes who was fired and escorted out of the building - allegedly because he leaked to Ailes critic and forthcoming biographer, Gabriel Sherman - has now retained a high-profile lawyer and is threatening to spill secrets.
According to Gawker, Lewis has retained Judd Burstein, an entertainment lawyers whose past clients include Donald Trump and the Backstreet Boys.
But here's where it gets interesting. In a statement to Gawker, Burstein said he is "still plotting our course of action." But then he made this not-so-thinly-veiled threat:
But two things are very clear to me. First, Brian Lewis no longer has any confidentiality obligation to Newscorp or Roger Ailes because of the false and malicious statements made by Fox to date. Second, Roger Ailes and Newscorp have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis.
Grab the popcorn!
However, if it’s true Lewis leaked to Sherman because he was uneasy with what Ailes has been up to and things remain acrimonious…
More importantly, I can’t wait to read the book!
These frauds don’t like their secrets spilled to the public. What they do is pay off their former employees with a settlement.
NOTE TO BRIAN
Don’t let that foul-mouth Ailes pay you off! Tell the world of what he has done. He threw you under the bus, now throw him under the bus. Tell the masses about the Second Floor meetings, the War Room meetings, the anchors’ double standards, who’s doing who, and the rest of the gems.
