Roy Moore’s wife preempts accusations of anti-Semitism: ‘One of our attorneys is a Jew!’

On the eve of the special election that will decide the fate of Alabama’s open Senate seat, Kayla Moore, the wife of the controversial GOP candidate, decided to “set the record straight” on accusations of anti-Semitism against her husband.

“Fake news will tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” Washington Post reporter turned Trump punching bag Dave Weigel tweeted, quoting Kayla Moore. “One of our attorneys is a Jew!”

Moore was accused of anti-Semitism following repeated comments about the liberal Jewish megadonor George Soros last week, a popular anti-Semitic dogwhistle used by right-wing personalities like Steve Bannon and Alex Jones.

Last month, after the initial accusations against Moore were published in the Post, many Alabama voters received a mysterious robo-call from someone who identified himself as “Bernie Bernstein” that claimed to work for the newspaper. “Bernstein” said he would give money to women who would come forward with fake accusations about Moore, a popular talking point among right-wing pundits at the time. The Post denied that any such reporter existed soon after, and many noted that the name appeared to be playing on anti-Semitic tropes.

Upon the release, many White House watchers noticed that the transcript was nothing like the summary of the call that the administration released on the day the two leaders talked.

The exchange released by the WH does not appear to be an exact transcript as it does not include talk of U.S. support of Ukrainian sovereignty and a desire to root out corruption there, two things specifically highlighted in the White House read out of the call released in April.

Viewers baffled as GOP counsel appears to push anti-Trump talking points during Yovanovich cross-examination

Published

on

House Republican impeachment inquiry attorney Steve Castor on Friday baffled viewers with a line of questioning that appeared to be beneficial to House Democrats' case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Among other things, Castor referred to ambassador Bill Taylor as a man of integrity and also didn't challenge former ambassador Marie Yovanovich's story that she had been the subject of a smear campaign launched by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In fact, Castor's line of questioning was so friendly to House Democrats, that some Twitter users joked that he was a "deep state plant" who's secretly helping to impeach the president.
