Bannon compares Moore report to Trump Access Hollywood tape

  Bannon compares Moore report to Trump Access Hollywood tape "By the way, the Bezos Amazon Washington Post that dropped that dime on Donald Trump is the same Bezos Amazon Washington that dropped a dime this afternoon"At a speech in New Hampshire Thursday night, GOP strategist Steve Bannon compared the accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to the release of President Trump's infamous "Access Hollywood" video during the 2016 election.

Breitbart , led by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon , was prepared even before The Post’s story was published. As Axios’ Jonathan Swan noted, “this shows the extremes to which [ Breitbart ] may go to discredit Moore ’ s accusers .”

The Washington insider publication Axios reports the website has shipped-off reporters Matt Boyle and Aaron Klein to Alabama where they aim to poke holes in the stories of Moore’s accusers. The two Bannon lackeys have already started their investigation into the women, as Klein published a story today suggesting one allegation could be false due to a previously unreported “key detail.”

Robocall Impersonating Washington Post Reporter Pretends To Seek Dirt On Roy Moore

  Robocall Impersonating Washington Post Reporter Pretends To Seek Dirt On Roy Moore A robocall from someone posing as a Washington Post reporter offering money for “damaging remarks” about Alabama Republican Roy Moore is fake, the Post said Tuesday after a local station in Alabama reported on it. The call ― an apparent attempt to discredit the Post’s reporting on sexual assault allegations against the U.S. Senate candidate ― was received by at least one person, Pastor Al Moore of Creola, who reported it to local CBS affiliate WKRG-TV.

One of the accusers , Leigh Corfman, told the Post that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was just 14-years-old. Tags Breitbart Roy Moore Steve Bannon Donald Trump Alabama Senate race.

“Speaking by phone to Breitbart News on Saturday, Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71, says that her daughter did not have a phone in her bedroom during the period that Moore is reported to have allegedly called Corfman – purportedly on Corfman’s bedroom phone – to arrange at least one encounter,” wrote Klein.

Despite Breitbart suggesting this “key detail” discredits Leigh Corfman’s claims — who is accusing Moore of initiating physical relations with when she was 14 and he was 32 — the woman’s mother still supports the allegations and has noted the phone could “easily” be used in her daughter’s bedroom.

Bannon running defense for Moore — regardless of the nastiness of these allegations — is hardly surprising, as the Breitbart kingpin aggressively campaigned for the former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice during his primary run against Senator Luther Strange. Moore has vehemently denied the allegations, calling them “completely false and misleading” — though he previously admitted to dating “a lot of young ladies.”
