"Why do you think they're giving me this trouble?"

Moore, an evangelical Christian who was twice ousted as Alabama's chief justice, suggested he's being attacked for his hardline views on faith in public life as part of an ongoing "spiritual battle".

"I believe that the Democrats will do great damage to our country", Brooks responded, picking up his pace. That's how he justifies supporting Roy Moore, accused of assaulting a 14-year-old girl among other five women who've accused the Republican Judge - as if Donald Trump were not already actually doing great harm to our country. And on Monday, a separate Alabama woman alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, and described her experience at a news conference, represented by attorney Gloria Allred.

Over a four-day period from November 9 to November 13, ABC, CBS and NBC dedicated 79 minutes and 42 seconds of morning and evening newscasts to covering the allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore from the 1970s.
