I said in the very beginning that I believed Mitch McConnell and the Establishment GOP had their fingerprints all over the false Roy Moore accusations as they were sore losers over Luther Strange.
It seems now, there is some definite truth to the matter, as it has been outed that Tim Miller, a Republican operative and an ex-Jeb Bush staffer, admitted planting the anti-Roy Moore story in the Washington Post.
What I want to know is how much did Mitch McConnell know and when did he know it. He was ready almost immediately after the story hit to call for Roy Moore to stand down. It was almost like he was prepared.
Anyway, here is the story from Breitbart and BigLeaguePolitics:
A Friday Big League Politics report claims Tim Miller, a Republican operative prominent in the “Never Trump” movement, helped pitch the Washington Post story in which the first allegations of sexual misconduct nearly 40 years ago were made against Alabama GOP senatorial nominee Roy Moore.
The report contains screenshots of what are alleged to be text messages between Miller and conservative publisher Charles C. Johnson of GotNews.com. The texts show Miller insulting Judge Moore’s fitness for office and bragging about how “Beth” is “good to work with.” He is implied to be referring to Beth Reinhard, one of the two authors of the original Washington Post story.
Big League Politics has obtained screenshots of a text conversation between Tim Miller and conservative writer Charles C. Johnson. In the conversation, Miller refers to “Beth.” He is referring to Beth Reinhard, a Washington Post reporter who has pushed the allegations against Moore.
The allegations that Moore pursued young teenage girls have been roundly criticized for alleged factual inaccuracy, and for the Democratic Party connections of at least one accuser.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is seen by insiders as fighting against Moore in favor of his Democrat opponent Doug Jones, who is also linked to Bush family strategist Karl Rove, according to insiders.
These text messages reveal a few things: the Republican Establishment’s relationship with the Post’s anti-Moore coverage, the cunning of writer Charles Johnson in trapping Miller, and former Bush staffer Miller’s cluelessness about how to conduct himself in the world of political subterfuge. Miller denied to BLP that he was involved in the Washington Post story “or any others where women spoke out about Judge Moore,” but the text messages below leave no doubt as to his involvement:
Reinhard, before joining the Washington Post, worked at the Wall Street Journal during the 2016 GOP presidential primaries as the embedded reporter covering the Bush campaign. She, therefore, likely had regular interaction with Miller since at least 2015.
During and after the 2016 primaries, Miller was one of the leading voices against eventual GOP nominee Donald Trump. He played a role in the decidedly unsuccessful attempt by Never Trumpers to disregard the will of Republican voters and deny Trump the nomination through the use of convention rules.
Miller remains an outspoken critic of Trump and consistently opposes Republicans of the pro-Trump or populist-nationalist bent. He has frequently appeared on cable news programs as an anti-trump Republican voice and now is one of far-left Salon.com’s 25 favorite “conservatives.”
Miller has aggressively campaigned for Judge Moore’s liberal Democratic opponent Doug Jones. on Twitter, announcing last month that he had donated money to Jones:
I just donated to a Democrat for the first time in my life if any of yall want to do so as well. Enough is enough. https://t.co/YlDXTXSnyJ

In an Associated Press (AP) report, Miller bragged about his donation to the Jones campaign. “Given all the re-tweets, I probably raised more money for Doug Jones than I ever raised for Jeb,” he told the AP.
Now a partner at Definers Public Affairs, a beltway outfit run by Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign manager Matt Rhoades, Miller co-founded America Rising, a Romney and GOP establishment affiliated “super PAC.”
If true, the Big League Politics report would vindicate Moore’s claim that there was “collusion” between the GOP establishment, the Democrats, and the media in the promotion of the allegations against him. While unconfirmed, the article has received massive popular attention. Sources close to Big League Politics tell Breitbart News the site’s servers initially could not handle all the traffic coming into the site from the story.
I want to know! Mitch McConnell young man! What did you know? And when did you know it?!
