In a slugfest between two prominent New York litigators, plaintiffs lawyer Douglas Wigdor on Wednesday cited his appreciation for Fox News—and his financial backing for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign—to refute the suggestion that he’s part of a left-wing conspiracy against just-ousted Fox commentator Bill O’Reilly.

“As someone who supported and contributed to the Trump campaign and who routinely watches Fox News, I can categorically deny, and find it offensive, that my firm is being accused of being controlled by far-left organizations,” Wigdor said in a statement. “To the contrary, we have and will continue to vindicate the rights of all employees to ensure that they are treated fairly and lawfully regardless of who they work for or what political beliefs such employer may support.”
