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.
