Billy Bush is officially leaving NBC in the continuing fallout from that 2005 Donald Trump tape.
Bush laughed along on the tape as Trump talked about coming onto and grabbing women, and he got suspended for it. There were reports that Bush bragged about the tapes months ago and NBC has been conducting an internal investigation.
Bush’s departure was announced in a memo to staff tonight:

Bush: "I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, & for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues"

Bush and NBC reached a settlement days ago after Bush lawyered up.
