Tim Mak, senior correspondent for The Daily Beast, joined Megyn Kelly on "The Kelly File" tonight to discuss his controversial article about three-decade old rape allegations against Donald Trump made by his ex-wife.

Mak defended the article, claiming that Trump's status as a leading presidential candidate, plus his comments about Mexican "rapists" crossing the border, made these allegations fair game.

"But that doesn't answer the question about whether your reporting is fair or relevant," Megyn said.

Megyn defended the Republican presidential front-runner, noting that Ivana Trump has since walked back her rape allegations.

Megyn also pointed out that many false, inflammatory statements are often made during divorce proceedings.
