Republican lawmaker on Roy Moore abuse allegations: 'I'd break his face'

Billy Bush

Another five women came forward about sexual advances allegedly done by Moore that made them uncomfortable. "But you mentioned the economy, and while I think it's foolish to give him all the credit for the good economy, it would also be absolutely unfair not to give him a significant amount of credit for the economy".

Additionally, more than a dozen Senate Republicans, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, have called on Moore to drop out of the race. Lindsey Graham said, "If you can't be in a mall, you shouldn't be in the Senate".

The Times cites three staff members confirmed hearing the comments, with Trump asking "Do you believe this?" to several aides in the Oval Office.

Trump suggested that Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, must be out of the Senate.

But something deeper has been consuming Trump.

Before unloading on the conservative candidate, Taylor said Moore's defense against the accusations has not been "sufficient enough". In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.

Police later said no evidence of gunfire could be found. 'Updates will be provided as soon as we have them. Sky News reported Bond Street and Oxford Circus tube stations were close but have since been reopened.

His position was a break from that of other national Republicans.

The White House's message on the race has changed day-to-day.

The Economist/YouGov results might also cast some light on the thinking of President Donald Trump, who has even left the door open to going to Alabama to campaign for Moore.

That is despite detailed allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior.

Both polls, commissioned by Republican groups in mid-November, found Jones leading Moore in a head-to-head election and winning handily in a three-way race, according to people who reviewed the results.

McConnell and his allies have believed for weeks that disaster awaits, win or lose, if Moore remains in the race: Either the Democrats will claim the seat December 12, or Moore will win and thrust the party into an agonizing monthslong debate over whether to expel him. Just 9 percent of GOP respondents said Moore "definitely did it" regarding the reported inappropriate sexual conduct with high school students when Moore was a prosecutor in his thirties.
