Another woman has come forward to allege that Senate candidate Roy Moore groped her in 1991 after a meeting in his law office, AL.com reported Wednesday.
“Hannity will likely have more pull than anybody else in convincing Moore supporters to tell Moore to leave the race, more than any of the senators who dropped their endorsement”, wrote Carl Arbogast in the conservative blog Redstate.com on Wednesday.
Trump has given little indication whether he’s interested in playing the role of party heavy.
Hice, R-Ga., earlier endorsed Republican nominee Roy Moore in a special election for a U.S. Senate seat, saying the former Alabama chief justice would be “such an ally” to fellow members of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus.
The stories are based on posts from a Twitter user named Doug Lewis claiming “a family friend” of Lewis said she was offered $1000 by a Washington Post reporter identified only as “Beth” to accuse Moore of wrongdoing.
Roy Moore stands accused of sexually harassing six women.
“To a sweeter more lovely girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House”, the message said.
And when her own father’s remarks describing sexual assault in a leaked “Access Hollywood” tape resurfaced during the 2016 election, Ivanka Trump said his words were “offensive” and “jarring”.
Trump himself had, famously, boasted of sexual assault in the Access Hollywood tape that surfaced during last year’s presidential campaign. Nelson was a classmate of Kayla Kisor, who later married Moore. Xi asked Trump privately after they delivered joint statements to reporters, in a moment described by two White House officials not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.
“That obviously would be a big move for him and for the President”.
The president backed Moore’s unsuccessful rival, Sen.
President Trump, who backed unusual in the primary, just returned from his trip to Asia and could weigh in on Moore further.
“He’s anxious about the conversation moving to his past accusers”, the Republican familiar with the matter said, noting that the President believes his accusers were unfair and some of Moore’s may be, too.
The poll, conducted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, showed Moore at 39 percent and Jones with 51.
Gonnella even suggested the allegations against Moore could be “satanically motivated, but politically carried out”.
Under state law, Moore can not be removed from the ballot.
Meanwhile, McConnell floated Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a write-in to take back his empty Senate seat as a replacement for Moore. Sessions also hasn’t displayed any public interest in returning to the Senate.
