Eric Bolling is taking a page from Fox News host Sean Hannity’s playbook. Sean Hannity was a target of washed up blogger and lawyer Debbie Schlussel until he hired a team of lawyers who threatened to sue her. Like magic, the false allegations went away. No more rolling over and playing dead while the leftist media smears your name and character with false allegations…

Bolling tweeted a couple of messages, thanking his supporters who are standing by Bolling, as Huffington Post reporter Yashar Ali goes for the jugular…

In this tweet, Bolling claims that the accusations against him are “false smear attacks!”

The Hill – Fox News host Eric Bolling is reportedly suing the Huffington Post reporter who broke a story last week that included several female co-workers claiming Bolling sent them lewd photos.

“Just received a summons. Eric Bolling is suing me for defamation – $50 million in damages, ” Yashar Ali, a HuffPost contributing writer, tweeted to his 140,000 Twitter followers on Wednesday. “I stand by my reporting + will protect my sources.”

Ali clarifies in his next post that Bolling is suing him and NOT the Huffington Post:

“The nature of this action is for damages and injunctive relief based on defamation arising from the defendant’s efforts to injure the plaintiff’s reputation through the intentional and/or highly reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements about the plaintiff’s conduct and character. As a result of the defendant’s actions, the plaintiff has been substantially harmed,” reads the summons sent to Ali.

The editor in chief of The Huffington Post tweeted that the outlet will be “standing by” Ali in the case.
