The New York Attorney General's office is looking into NBC News over reported claims of sexual harassment there, investigative journalist Rich McHugh revealed to Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Monday night. Host Tucker Carson began the interview by asking McHugh if he had heard that the New York AG has been "investigating" NBC News over "sexual abuse, sexual harassment claims."

"Yes I have, Tucker," McHugh confirmed. "That is true. I'm aware of it. I've been looking into it for a story. It was the New York Attorney General's office civil division, so we're not sure if it could lead into anything criminal, but I do know that they've been looking into this and interviewing employees over a number of months."
"Well, that's kind of amazing," Carlson reacted. "So, just to be completely clear... the New York Attorney General's office is looking into NBC News. Remarkable."
