Billy Bush is reportedly considering legal action against NBC over the leak of his sleazy conversation about women with Donald Trump. Page Six reports that Bush believes NBC leaked the tape to The Washington Post last weekend after the network found out that Access Hollywood planned to air it the following Monday. “He told people at NBC about this tape,” an insider points out. “What if there was a transcript of the tape, and high-level discussions about when to release it? Which executives were involved, and why did they decide to suppress the tape until October, when they could have aired it in August?” The source goes on to suggest that NBC made a strategic decision to leak the tape right before the second presidential debate and is now making Bush the scapegoat by firing him over a “morality clause” in his contract. Regardless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC and Bush are currently negotiating his exit from NBC News.
