Three of Charlie Rose's former employees, this time from CBS, accused him of sexual harassment during his time at the network, just hours after he was fired from CBS' morning show.

Earlier allegations were made by eight women who worked, or aspired to work, on Rose's program at PBS. CBS, which reported the fresh round of allegations Wednesday, said they learned about the new cases "not from the HR department, but from our own investigation of his behavior."

The new allegations:

  • The three employees spoke anonymously. One woman said she wasn't ready for the details of her story to become public, and two others described "unwanted encounters with Rose at work-related events."
  • One said Rose groped her butt. The other said he "grabbed her inappropriately and whispered a sexual innuendo in her ear."
  • Former Charlie Rose Show producer Rebecca Carroll also told CBS that she witnessed some of the inappropriate behavior, but "there wasn't anybody to tell."

Rose's defense: Monday night, a TMZ cameraman asked Rose if he had anything to say to the accusers about these "wrongdoings." Rose replied, "It's not wrongdoings." His defiant response differs from his initial statement in which he said "I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed."

Go deeper: CBS and PBS have both dropped Rose from their networks. Bloomberg has also suspended Rose's show from airing on Bloomberg TV and radio.

Grand jury proceedings in the case of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman fatally shot by police, will be released on Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron confirmed to news outlets.

Driving the news: Cameron's announcement late Monday came hours after a judge granted an unnamed juror's court motion seeking the release of last week's transcripts and related recordings.

Bob Woodward: "I was not going to hide" my opinion on Trump

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
