Steve Bannon is slamming The Washington Post as part of the “opposition party” after the newspaper reported allegations of sexual misconduct by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, was among Moore’s most vocal supporters this fall. He referenced the Alabama controversy only briefly during an appearance Thursday night in New Hampshire.

Bannon is calling the Post an “apparatus of the Democratic Party” and notes it was among the first to report the “Access Hollywood” tape that caught Trump using sexually predatory language in 2005.

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

The Post reported Thursday that an Alabama woman said Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, had sexual contact with her when she was 14.
