Turnabout: Why Trump, GOP leaders are now backing Roy Moore
Posted by Staff

Fox News:

When the allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore were first published, President Trump was quick to distance himself.

While a "mere allegation" should not be allowed to destroy someone's life, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement, "the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside."

Mitch McConnell said that if Moore won the Senate seat in Alabama, he would face possible expulsion. "If he were to be sworn in," the majority leader said at a Wall Street Journal forum, "he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee." Moore would be "asked to testify under oath" in what would probably be "an unprecedented beginning."
