Rep. Mo Brooks risks his life to defend Roy Moore

Gloria Allred Responds to Roy Moore Attorney, Calls for Moore to Testify Under Oath Rep. Mo Brooks risks his life to defend Roy Moore

A former USA senator from Oklahoma and endorser of controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore says he's concerned that the Alabama Republican is being unfairly tried in the court of public opinion.

But this growing criticism has yet to sweep over key Republicans in Alabama.

"The good people of Alabama, not the Washington elite who wallow in the swamp, will decide this election!"

Republican officials in Alabama continued to express skepticism about the accusations made against Moore, saying that they are still waiting for the evidence to back up the allegations.

The 70-year-old, who is running for the Senate seat Sessions vacated when he joined President Donald Trump's administration, has denied the allegations and has suggested that establishment Republicans are working in tandem with news media to discredit him.

"These attacks said I was with a minor child and are false and untrue - and for which they will be sued", Moore said Sunday night during a campaign speech in Huntsville, Alabama.

Prime Minister Modi also called for concerted efforts by countries of region to deal with terrorism and extremism. China claims sovereignty over nearly all of the South China Sea, a huge source of hydrocarbons.

Others in the state said there is little that can be done, as the December 12 election to fill the seat vacated by Sessions approaches. "It's too damn late".

Mr. McConnell told reporters at the Capitol Tuesday that Mr. Moore was "obviously not fit to be in the United States Senate".

The National Republican Senatorial Committee was the first to drop itself from the agreement, which benefits Moore's campaign, ending its participation last Friday, according to FEC filings.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the nation's top law-enforcement officer, said in testimony before Congress that he has no reason to doubt five women who have accused Moore of misconduct when they were in their teens.

Now, the Alabama Republican Party is the only other GOP entity that is participating in Moore's fundraising efforts.

He stated recently that the Senate should expel Mr. Moore should he win the seat.
