Recently, two well-informed sources told me that Fox, in order to avoid going to trial, had agreed to pay the woman upward of four million dollars. The former assistant has not been publicly identified, and, out of respect for the rights of alleged victims of sexual harassment, The New Yorker is honoring her confidentiality.
The draft complaint also alleged that Guilfoyle spoke incessantly and luridly about her sex life, and on one occasion demanded a massage of her bare thighs; other times, she said, Guilfoyle told her to submit to a Fox employee’s demands for sexual favors, encouraged her to sleep with wealthy and powerful men, asked her to critique her naked body, demanded that she share a room with her on business trips, required her to sleep over at her apartment, and exposed herself to her, making her feel deeply uncomfortable. As serious as the draft complaint’s sexual-harassment allegations were, equally disturbing was what the assistant described as a cover up attempt by Guilfoyle, whose conduct was about to come under investigation by a team of outside lawyers.
In July 2016, the network had hired the New York-based law firm Paul, Weiss to investigate sexual misconduct at the company, which, under the leadership of Roger Miles, had a long history of flagrant harassment and gender discrimination. According to those familiar with the assistant’s draft complaint, during a phone call on August 6, 2017, she alleged that Guilfoyle tried to buy her silence, offering to arrange a payment to her if she agreed to lie to the Paul, Weiss lawyers about her experiences.
The alleged offering of hush money brings to mind Trump’s payments to the porn star Stormy Daniels, in order to cover up his sexual impropriety. By 2017, the Paul, Weiss lawyers had begun investigating accusations of workplace sexual misconduct involving Eric Bowling, with whom Guilfoyle shared the assistant.
(Bowling, whose employment Fox ended in September 2017, declined to comment; he has denied any wrongdoing, and is now a host at Sinclair Broadcast Group.) People close to Guilfoyle called the assistant’s allegation untrue, and said they were shocked that she would fabricate such a false claim.
During my career, I have served as a mentor to countless women, with many of whom I remain exceptionally close to this day.” John Singer, her lawyer, said that he would not comment. According to the former assistant’s account, she declined what she regarded as Guilfoyle ’s attempts to buy her off, and refused to conceal evidence or lie.
Guilfoyle ’s graphic sexual talk so upset hair-and-makeup artists at Fox that they lodged an internal complaint, triggering an investigation by the company. Yet the assistant has alleged, both in her draft complaint and to confidants, that Guilfoyle contributed to, and even defended, the sexually hostile work environment at Fox News.
One of the former Fox News colleagues who had socialized with Guilfoyle told me that her sexually inappropriate behavior was akin to that of many powerful male Fox employees before 2016, when the network was rocked by a lawsuit brought against Miles by Gretchen Carlson, a former on-air host. In an interview with Ad week, Guilfoyle claimed that she had spoken with more than thirty women at Fox, and said, “Nobody that I’ve spoken to said that this was their experience.” Two months before Fox settled with Carlson, for twenty million dollars, Guilfoyle gave an interview to Breitbart in which she vouched for Miles’s “character, integrity, and credibility,” saying, “I’ve known the man very well the last 15 years.
In fact, soon after Guilfoyle left Fox, in July 2018, she joined Trump’s reelection campaign, as vice-chair of America First Action, a pro-Trump super PAC. Last December, reportedly at the President’s request, Guilfoyle was asked to become the head of fund-raising for Trump Victory, his main campaign organization.

The New Yorker subsequently corroborated reports that Guilfoyle had been forced to resign, rather than leaving by choice. Terms were not disclosed, but The New Yorker reported that the settlement was at least $4 million.
The assistant alleged that Guilfoyle frequently displayed herself naked, showed photographs of the genitalia of men she had had sex with, and required her to sleep over at Guilfoyle's apartment. The New Yorker independently verified several of the assistant's allegations.
In 2015, Guilfoyle released a semi-autobiographical and advice book, titled Making the Case: How to Be Your Own Best Advocate, on her experiences growing up, working as a prosecutor, and encouraging people to always advocate for themselves.

Sean Spicer was considered the front-runner for the position and was ultimately selected. On the May 12, 2017, edition of The Five, co-host Bob Becker hinted that Guilfoyle turned the job down.
However, in an interview with Bay Area News Group on May 15, 2017, Guilfoyle confirmed she was in contact with the White House about the position following Spicer's resignation. “I'm a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country”, Guilfoyle said.
“I think it'd be a fascinating job, it's a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.” However, on May 19, Guilfoyle said she was under contract with Fox, indicating she turned down the White House.
In 2018, The Washington Post described Guilfoyle as a “conservative cheerleader for President Trump”. As of early 2020, the Trump campaign was paying Guilfoyle $15,000 per month through the campaign manager's private company, Par scale Strategy.
