In a one-two punch from conservative websites supporting accused pedophile Roy Moore, a Breitbart editor appeared with conspiracy site Infowars’ Alex Jones to question the sanity of one Moore’s accusers.
In audio captured by Right Wing Watch, Breitbart editor Aaron Klein — who was dispatched to Alabama by Breitbart founder Steve Bannon to “dig up dirt,” on Moore’s accusers — spoke with the blustery radio host where he attempted to claim that there were unreported “bombshells” about Moore’s accusers.
Klein asserted that Beverly Young Nelson’s story, about being assaulted by Moore when she was only 16, falls apart because Moore’s signature in her high school yearbook is followed with “D.A,” so it couldn’t have been him because he was an assistant district attorney (A.D.A.) at the time.
Jones praised Klein for that tidbit, saying, “You said all this and you guys reported on it exclusively, basically—got attacked everywhere. You can see it’s fake. You can see it’s different, cobbled together. It’s a lifted signature put on there and now she has to admit she wrote it. I mean you can’t listen to anything that comes out of her mouth now.”
Klein went on to attack Moore accuser Tina Johnson, who claimed Moore groped her in his law office, saying that Johnson once had her child taken away from her, and declared her “psychiatrically unstable,” in legal documents he signed.
“Wow, ” Jones exclaimed excitedly. “I didn’t even know this and I’ve been reading all of your reports. So they had a direct beef with him for what he did as the DA to get back at him? Wow.”
“He was that time a private lawyer, ” Klein corrected Jones, adding, “He represented her [Johnson’s] mother, and she was in there that day to have her child taken away from her by Roy Moore’s client.”
Contrary to Klein’s description of the events, Johnson explained to AL.com that she signed the papers created by Moore because her son had already been living with his grandmother and wished to stay with her while Johnson’s daughters remained with her.

‘Smart rats jump a sinking orange ship’: Columnist predicts more Republicans will flee Trump
New York Times contributing columnist Wajahat Ali predicted that more Republicans would likely flee President Donald Trump in the coming weeks.
Already, Trump's own officials, appointees, and staff are lining up to testify to the House committees, despite Trump saying they will not cooperate with any investigations.
"I believe smart rats jump a sinking orange ship, and if you don't believe me, you haven't paid attention to the last week," Ali told CNN's Don Lemon. In the past week, several of Trump's appointees have lined up to give a deposition or testify. Even outgoing Energy Secretary Rick Perry revealed in a Wall Street Journal interview, that Rudy Giuliani was to be the point person on all things related to Ukraine.
CNN panel mocks the White House for promoting a photo of Trump looking ‘subservient’ to Pelosi
The White House posted a series of photos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Wednesday after their meeting, showing Pelosi being the only person in the room literally standing up to President Donald Trump. It was an image that baffled the mind of at least one CNN panelist as to why the Trump people would be promoting Pelosi.
According to reports from those who were in the room, the president flew off the handle after Pelosi quipped that it seems all roads lead back to Russia for this president. It was at that point that Trump called Pelosi a "third-grade politician," though presumably, he meant "third-rate," and the meeting broke apart.
Max Boot calls BS on Republicans for trying to claim Syria is Nancy Pelosi’s fault because of impeachment
President Donald Trump is conducting foreign policy like a 1980s television character, according to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot.
In a panel discussion about the letter Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, Boot mocked Republicans for suddenly trying to claim that Trump's withdrawal from Syria was Speaker Nancy Pelosi's fault because of impeachment. It is unclear if Republicans are confessing the president is too distracted by impeachment to be making foreign policy decisions or if they are blaming Pelosi for military decisions.
"I mean there's a lot of really lame Republican talking points out there, Don," Boot said to CNN host Don Lemon. "But to suggest, as Rep. Liz Cheney and others have done that somehow Trump's inexplicable decision to give the Turks the green light to invade Syria — that was somehow the fault of Nancy Pelosi because of the impeachment process? What?"
