Within minutes of the now widely discredited Washington Post article which lobbed entirely unsubstantiated claims at Judge Roy Moore, a whole host of Republican U.S. Senators, including Mitch McConnell, called on Judge Moore to step aside if the allegations were true, as noted in the tweet below.

Many observers of the Alabama special election, including Jesse Lee Peterson, immediately saw through the ruse, and, citing the questionable timing of the Washington Post hit piece, put forth the common sense response that anyone accused of such serious crimes — especially someone like Judge Roy Moore, who’d lived his entire life under the microscope of hostile political opponents — should be given the benefit of the doubt and innocence should be presumed.

Astute observers also sniffed out Republican involvement in the smear campaign.

Naturally, Chamber of Commerce-aligned Fox News rushed to carry water for the establishment Republicans and amplified the Majority Leader’s call for Moore to step aside. Fox News had also rushed to report the liberal Bezos owned Washington Post’s report earlier that day.
After pushing their narrative all weekend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sought out TV cameras to tell the nation he thought Roy Moore should step down, logically making way for pro-abortion Democrat Doug Jones.
Republican scribe George F. Will even endorsed pro-abortion, open-border Democrat Doug Jones.
