“I strongly believe that the sexual encounter with Ms. Phillips more than 20 years ago was consensual,” he said in a statement to the news outlet.

Dauer said that Moonves discussed ways to keep the allegations hushed. Apparently, he offered Phillips work in “Blood And Treasure”, which she declined.

“If Bobbie talks, I’m finished,” he reportedly told Dauer.

“I don’t know how I got in the middle of this. All I know is that I’m a key witness with $120 million at stake,” said Dauer. “I can’t even imagine a sum of money like that… yes, I did try to get my clients parts. That’s my job. That’s what managers do.”

These allegations led to Moonves leaving his CEO position at CBS. The network is currently in the middle of investigating the sexual assault claims.
