NBC host Megyn Kelly implies that she may know more about sexual-misconduct allegations against former Today show host Matt Lauer, according to The Daily Beast.

During an Us Weekly interview, Kelly was asked if she could see Lauer returning to the public eye.

“I know too much that others don’t know,” she responded.

Lauer was fired by the network last year when he was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. At the time of his firing, Kelly interviewed one of his accusers, Addie Zindone, on her show, and they talked about her relationship with Lauer when she was 24 years old.

Kelly feels very strongly about her #MeToo coverage, and has said that she did not let anyone stop her at Fox and she won’t let anyone stop her at NBC. She has also said that the men rocked by the #MeToo movement need to learn from this moment of reckoning.

“I think these guys who want to completely skirt around it and just reappear and re-emerge in their old roles are kidding themselves,” she said, according to The Daily Beast. “Women are feeling too empowered to allow that. They don’t want to just see punishment, they want to see that you get it.”
