Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon suggested
Thursday there could be a questionable connection between the
recent sexual misconduct allegations involving Roy Moore,
the Republican nominee for Alabama senator, and the release last
year of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s revealing
“Access Hollywood” tape.

Speaking at the “Taking On The Establishment” fundraiser in New
Hampshire Thursday, the executive chairman of Breitbart
News raised doubt on the
accusations, calling it the “politics of self-destruction,”
and attacked the credibility of the Washington Post, according to
CBS News.

“But it’s interesting,” Bannon said in a recording obtained
by CBS News. “The Bezos-Amazon-Washington Post that dropped that
dime on Donald Trump, is the same Bezos-Amazon-Washington Post
that dropped the dime this afternoon on Judge Roy Moore.”

“Now is that a coincidence,” Bannon continued. “That’s what I
mean when I say opposition party, right?”

The Trump campaign initially struggled after the release of
the damaging Access Hollywood tapes, published last
year by The Post, in which he was heard making lewd
remarks about women in 2005.

Trump boasted in the tape of being able to “grab” women “by
the p—y” because “when you’re a star they let you do

On Thursday, The Post published a
bombshell report on Moore’s alleged past, citing several sources
and corroborators. Multiple women alleged that Moore had
approached them when they were underage, some as young as 14, and
made sexual advances.

Following the accusations, Moore vehemently denied the
allegations and several GOP operatives have even gone so far to
allege that the
accusers may have been working for the Democratic Party.

“It’s purely part of the apparatus of the Democratic Party,”
Bannon continued. “They don’t make any bones about it. By the
way, I don’t mind it. I’ll call them out every day.”
