Internet destroys Breitbart for describing Roy Moore’s advances on underage girls as ‘being romantic’

Published

on

Before the Washington Post broke a story alleging that Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore sought relationships with underage girls — one as young as 14 — Breitbart ran their own story in defense of the judge.

Citing a woman who said she dated Moore when she was 17 and he 34, Breitbart wrote that Moore was “being romantic” during their relationship, which the woman claims never went beyond kissing. It also cites multiple other teenaged women Moore reportedly dated while in his 30s.

Twitter reacted in disgust to Breitbart’s story, which they accused to being published before the Post to “run interference” for the Alabama Republican.

“Breitbart has a pretty good history of supporting people who think it’s cool to f*ck kids,” one user wrote. “Milo [Yiannapoulos, whom they fired for similar allegations], Roy Moore, etc.”

“The same people who blindly believed in Pizzagate are the same ones who are screaming fake news about Roy Moore,” another user tweeted.

Here are the two Trump claims that the Pentagon chief refused to vouch for

Published

on

The White House meeting Wednesday afternoon didn't go well for either party, according to their counterparts. Both sides are dishing on details, including a Democratic aide who said that there were two of President Donald Trump's claims that his own Pentagon chief wouldn't vouch for.

At the onset of the meeting, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) began by reading a quote from Gen. James Mattis, who briefly served in Trump's administration.

"But POTUS cut Schumer off," reported PBS News correspondent Lisa Desjardins. Trump then "said that Gen Mattis was: 'the world’s most overrated general. You know why? He wasn’t tough enough. I captured ISIS. Mattis said it would take 2 yrs. I captured them in 1 month."

Former Clinton lawyer scolds Trump’s White House counsel on impeachment: ‘we never considered’ behaving this way

Published

on

On Tuesday, Lanny Breuer, a special counsel who worked for President Bill Clinton's White House, wrote an open letter in the Washington Post to President Donald Trump's White House Counsel Pat Cipollone — telling him that, while he understands an impeachment is a horrible thing for an administration to go through, Clinton and his lawyers would never have behaved the way Trump is now.

"In 1998, we felt under siege," wrote Breuer. "We argued at the time, as you do in your letter, that Congress should provide additional procedural protections to the president ... For example, instead of conducting its own investigation, the committee relied almost exclusively on [independent counsel Ken] Starr’s report, which had serious flaws. The House took only three months to adopt articles of impeachment, and we had only two days to present our witnesses. The president’s personal lawyer, David Kendall, had only 30 minutes to question Starr. We felt this was deeply unfair and a derogation of the House’s constitutional duty to investigate thoroughly whether impeachment was warranted."
