Back in December, Fox News reported that not only is a man named Dustin Hice going after Don Lemon, who he claims sexually assaulted him, but also CNN, which he claims is full of “predators and perverts.” In that article, Fox reported:
It’s been over two years since Dustin Hice filed a lawsuit against Lemon – who is openly gay – accusing the CNN host of sexually charged assault and battery at a bar on New York’s Long Island during the summer of 2018. The case is expected to end up in court early next year after a prolonged legal process. Meanwhile, CNN terminated Cuomo – a good friend of Lemon’s – on Saturday amid a series of sexual misconduct-related scandals of his own.
“They’re a network rife with predators and perverts,” Hice told Fox News Digital. “Lemon will have to testify under oath in the near future, but it’s good to see that there’s finally some accountability happening.”
Well, now new details on what’s happening in that suit have emerged.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, a New York federal judge, the one handling Dice’s case, has ruled that ruled Lemon’s accuser will be allowed to call two additional witnesses to the stand. That outlet reporting on the trial, says that:
[Lemon’s]attempts to dismiss the case have been unsuccessful. The jury trial is scheduled for June.
Lemon plans to call two men to testify during the trial named Williams Erdman and George Gounelas.
[…]Gounelas is a friend of Hice who was out with him on the night in question. He publicly backed up his friend’s claim Lemon brushed him off after their first encounter at the bar.
Gounelas said a few moments later Lemon came back “pretty drunk.” He said the CNN anchor got in Hice’s face and then “put his hands down his pants, inside his board shorts, grabbed his [genitals], and then came out with two fingers” and put them under his friend’s nose.
That’s big news; now, Hice has a duo of witnesses that can testify as to what happened, potentially bringing Lemon down as other far-left members of the CNN staff have been brought down by sexual assault allegations or other sexual malfeasance allegations in recent months.
What’s particularly damning for Lemon, at least in terms of who’s being included, is that Gounelas was allegedly there and saw what happened. Though Lemon will certainly try to cross-examine him and disprove whatever he says, it’s important that, if Gounelas’ testimony is believed, that the situation is now more than a “he said she said” one; now there’s someone who saw what happened, or at least claimed to have seen what happened.
CNN is undergoing a purge right now; first Zucker “resigned“, then rumors of Stelter’s firing emerged, and now rumors that Lemon is done for. Perhaps the people CNN hires in their steads will learn how to keep their pants buttoned up. If not, the cycle will just keep repeating.
