(NBC NEWS) NBC News’s Billy Bush has been suspended by the network indefinitely after a 2005 tape leaked in which he can be heard talking with Donald Trump crudely about women.

“I know we’ve all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours,” wrote “Today” show producer Noah Oppenheim in a memo to staff.

“Let me be clear — there is simply no excuse for Billy’s language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter.”
