Trump Threatened Megyn Kelly for ‘Rape’ Report

Fox News host Megyn Kelly claims in a new interview that she was bullied by President-elect Donald Trump on more than one occasion, and even threatened on the phone after she ran a segment on rape allegations against the Republican nominee. During her program, The Kelly File, she reported on a Daily Beast story that detailed Ivana Trump’s sworn testimony that Trump had raped her while they were married. She later retracted the claim, which was made during divorce proceedings. Trump reportedly called Kelly after the segment and told her: “I almost unleashed my beautiful Twitter account on you, and I still may.” The Trump camp also threatened Daily Beast reporter Tim Mak for the rape-allegation story, with lead counsel Michael Cohen telling Mak, “I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting. You understand me? You write a story that has Mr. Trump’s name in it, with the word ‘rape,’ and I’m going to mess your life up… for as long as you’re on this frickin’ planet… you’re going to have judgments against you, so much money, you’ll never know how to get out from underneath it.”
