Eric Bolling has been silent ever since being suspended by Fox News over allegations from anonymous sources that he sent lewd images to female coworkers, and he finally broke his silence by declaring war against the reporter for the story.

We previously reported that Bolling had tweeted that he looked forward to “clearing” his name after thanking his fans for their support. Bolling, host of The Specialists on Fox News, had been accused by “a dozen different [anonymous] sources” of sending pictures of male genitalia to females he worked with at the network, but he denied the allegations in his tweet.

Taking a page out of Sean Hannity’s playbook, Bolling quietly decided he was going to fight back in a major way – with a massive lawsuit against the reporter trying to tarnish his name.

“BREAKING: ERIC BOLLING Drops Defamation Lawsuit on Yashar Ali for $50 Million in damages,” the tweet read.

That tweet actually referenced a tweet from Ali himself, who yesterday announced that he was summoned by Bolling in the lawsuit.

Of course, the leftist worm tried to spin the lawsuit by claiming that Bolling suing him personally is “very telling.”

More from Business Insider:

Fox News host Eric Bolling filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against a HuffPost writer after revelations Bolling was accused of sending lewd text messages to colleagues were published last week.

Court filings from the New York State Supreme Court reveal that Yashar Ali, a HuffPost contributing writer, was issued a summons notice to appear in court. Bolling is seeking $50 million in damages.

“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,” read the court notice.

Bolling was suspended from Fox News after being accused of sending unsolicited photos of male genitalia to several colleagues at various departments over a span of several years. The allegations, first brought to light by Ali’s report, cited over a dozen sources.

So far, not a single one of Ali’s sources has come forward, and the only suspected accuser, Michelle Fields, a former coworkers of Bolling’s, vehemently denied making the charges against him, saying he was “nothing but professional” during their time together at Fox.

But in another tweet on Wednesday, Ali doubled down on his reporting while dismissing the massive lawsuit being brought against him.

So that’s that. Discovery will be a telling process, and Ali should be forced to reveal Bolling’s accusers.

After all, if they’re so certain this happened, they shouldn’t have any issues coming forward with proof of it instead of trying to smear a good man’s name hidden behind the cloak of anonymity, like a coward.
