While most Republican Party officials and many big names in the conservative movement back away from Judge Roy Moore following decades-old accusations of sexual impropriety, Breitbart News Executive Director Steve Bannon is standing strong under the pressure. He refused to withdraw his endorsement of Judge Moore, and says it is up to the voters of Alabama to decide who they want as their next US Senator.
“The people of Alabama have got to decide,” Bannon said to a South Florida audience yesterday. “In Alabama, let people decide and we’ll see how it turns out.”
Although Bannon’s support of Judge Moore may be more tepid than it was in previous weeks, he foreshadowed possible events that may ultimately clear the embattled Senate candidate’s name. Bannon claimed that “some information’s going to come out” that will prove that the claims about the judge were circulated as apart of a calculated “hit” by the GOP party establishment.
If these bombshell revelations come to light, it will show once and for all that the Republican elites would rather have a Democrat in office than an actual conservative. Prominent Republicans such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Cory Gardner (R-CO) have already called on Judge Moore to withdraw from the race. Even conservative champions like Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) turned on Judge Moore when the going got tough.
“We’re not going to stop until Mitch McConnell is no longer majority leader,” Bannon said, reiterating his top priority since leaving the Trump administration.
Other topics Bannon covered during his Nov. 17 speech to a Fort Lauderdale audience included the ridiculousness of the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, the heroism of President Trump, the strategy behind Trump’s incredible win last year, the Democrats’ incessant drive for impeachment, and other key topics.
