Roger Ailes to be Indicted?

Barry Ritholz is reporting that Ailes may be indicted this coming week.

Recent court documents indicate that Ailes told then-News Corp employee, Judith Regan, to lie to Federal investigators about her affair with NYC police chief Bernie Kerik to protect Rudy Giuliani, who was then running for the Republican presidential nomination and also a close personal friend of Kerik's.

Here's what Ritholz has:
Someone I spoke with claimed that Ailes was scheduled to speak at their event in March, but canceled. It appears that Roger’s people, ostensibly using a clause in his contract, said he “cannot appear for legal reasons.”

I asked “What, precisely, does that mean?”

The response: “Roger Ailes will be indicted — probably this week, maybe even Monday.”
