NY AG reportedly probing NBC News over sexual assault claims

NBC News is being probed over numerous claims of sexual assault and discrimination, just a day after longtime chairman Andy Lack was ousted, according to a report on Tuesday.

The New York Attorney General has been investigating the damning claims about the network for at least six months, DailyMail.com said.

More than a dozen women have been interviewed by officials from a department dubbed “The Weinstein Unit” for its work nailing movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for rape, sources told the site.

Former NBC News anchor Linda Vester confirmed to the site that she is one of the women interviewed about alleged violations at the network.

“They wanted to know as many details as I could offer about what Andy Lack’s involvement was in orchestrating a public response against me and a defense or cover-up. He was one of many,” she told the outlet.
