Hollywood actor and frequent Trump critic Robert De Niro appeared on MSNBC and argued impeachment of Trump must move forward or else “we’re letting him get away with something.”
“He has done something wrong. He has to pay for that,” argued De Niro.
Unlike other recent obscenity filled appearances where De Niro lost control of his temper, the “Joker” actor was more subdued.
Per Newsweek, Robert De Niro’s former executive assistant sued the actor in federal court October over allegations that she was subjected to “years of gender discrimination and harassment” during her tenure at De Niro’s production company, Canal Productions, Inc.
The woman, Graham Chase Robinson, is alleging that De Niro fostered a “hostile work environment” and committed overt acts of harassment against her, including “unwanted physical contact” and sexual comments.
“Robert De Niro is someone who has clung to old mores,” the complaint alleges. “He does not accept the idea that men should treat women as equals. He does not care that gender discrimination in the workplace violates the law. Ms. Robinson is a casualty of this attitude.”
