Megyn Kelly speaks out on Tom Brokaw sexual misconduct allegations: 'You don't know what you don't know'

Megyn Kelly issued a warning to defenders of Tom Brokaw on "Megyn Kelly Today" on Monday amid allegations of sexual misconduct against the NBC News veteran.

Speaking during a round table discussion with correspondents Stephanie Gosk and Kate Snow, Kelly openly discussed the accusations against Brokaw brought on by former NBC News reporter Linda Vester, who claims that Brokaw forcefully kissed her on more than one occasion back in the 1990s. Another anonymous woman said that Brokaw acted inappropriately with her around the same time.

For his part, Brokaw has vehemently denied the claims, saying he "was ambushed and then perp-walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety as an avatar of male misogyny, taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half-century of journalism and citizenship."

"This is different, because not in every case does the man come out and forcefully deny it," Kelly said in comparing Brokaw's situation to others in the #MeToo movement. "In fact, we've seen in some of the cases, the men have said, 'I screwed up, I'm not a perfect person, I made mistakes.' Tom is saying that it did not happen."

SEE ALSO: Tom Brokaw rips 'sensational' accuser claims: I was 'ambushed and then perp walked'

The trio of Kelly, Gosk and Snow went on discuss the various investigations that have been done at NBC, Fox News and other networks in the past several months amid continuing allegations against high-profile men in the media.

"That's the thing, back during the presidential race, Hillary Clinton came out and said, 'I believe every accuser should be believed.' Except those accusing her husband," Kelly jabbed during the discussion. "I mean, honestly. That shouldn't be the rule in this case or any other. The men are entitled to due process, and the women are entitled to be heard and a full-fledged investigation of the claims they choose to raise."

"I used to say this all the time," she went on. "When I was at Fox News and [...] Gretchen Carlson filed her lawsuit against Roger and then I called Lachlan Murdoch to tell him what had happened to be 10 years earlier, because I wanted to make sure it wasn't just an internal investigation."

Though NBC News has promised to look into Vester's accusations, which have reportedly been corroborated by a friend and various journal entries, Kelly admitted that "there's only so much they can do about what happened 24 years ago."

Over the weekend, nearly 100 women signed a petition in support of Brokaw amid the claims of sexual misconduct being made against him. And, while Kelly appreciates the intent, she said that "letters like that can be dicey."

"It's basically a character reference, and they're saying, 'For what it's worth, my experience with him has always been honorable and he's treated me well,'" Kelly explained.

As for Vester, she has yet to comment to the press since the initial Variety story was published at the end of last week. Her attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, did release a statement on Sunday night, though, that indicates that she is sticking with her story.
