“A lawyer for Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore responded to allegations of child sex abuse by invoking a reporter’s “diverse background” and suggesting one of the women accusing Moore was mentally ill.
Speaking to Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday, lawyer Trenton Garmon claimed multiple women alleging Moore attempted to groom them as children ― including one who says Moore sexually assaulted her ― were instead “false witnesses.”
“Based on what I’ve seen, facts out there now, there’s questions” about the validity of the witnesses’ statements, Garmon said. “There’s issues about mental health we’ve not yet had the opportunity to get into.”
In a clip played by MSNBC, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity asked Moore if he would remember dating girls as young as 17. Moore responded no, but that he would not dispute the claims.”*
