Watch Mark Halperin Battle Emily Miller, Who’s Now Accusing Him of Harassment

Conservative pundit Emily Miller, a senior political correspondent for One America News Network, is joining the several other women who have come forward to accuse journalist Mark Halperin of sexual harassment.

After CNN’s Oliver Darcy released an article last night exposing the numerous allegations against Halperin, Miller posted the piece on Twitter and said, “#MeToo” — which is a hashtag being used by women to state they are victims of sexual misconduct. Miller went on to tweet that — though she was not one of the unnamed women in the article — she was “attacked” by Halperin.

While she did not give details on the incident, Miller was once a producer at ABC News, which is where Halperin spent a good portion of his career, so it presumably took place when they were both at the network.

To back up her claim, Miller told her followers to go find an old MSNBC clip of the two debating gun control laws on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, as it “will explain why so many of you asked why he attacked me on live TV.” The Washington Free Beacon‘s Alex Griswold dug up the segment (watch above) and it appears that Miller’s characterization is correct.

In the video, Halperin trolls Miller by aggressively playing devil’s advocate. Basically, he tries to corner Miller into defending the civilian use of machine guns and missile launchers — a policy that almost no pro-Second Amendment advocates support. Halperin does so by cutting Miller off and raising his voice over her’s every time she attempts to explain her actual position on the issue.

One might even describe the exchange as hyper-mansplaining.

According to the CNN report, the Halperin harassed women both verbally and physically. In a workplace setting, Halperin allegedly kissed, groped, and rubbed his body against women without their consent. It has been said that being in a position of power and influence allowed him to get away with this behavior.

Miller explained her reasons for not having come forward sooner in another tweet:
