From the November 9 edition of Fox News' The Story with Martha MacCallum:

MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): David, you’re defending Roy Moore in this situation?

DAVID WOHL: Well look, the timing of these allegations, one month before the election, makes them highly suspect. I mean, let me get this straight. These acts allegedly took place in 1979 and her first disclosure is 38 years later not to law enforcement but to a newspaper that has endorsed Roy Moore's opponent and is hell-bent on taking him down. I'm sorry, the credibility is completely zero. Mr. Trump -- President Trump went through this same thing during the election. Three maybe four women made outrageous allegations.

MACCALLUM: Yeah, but they weren’t 14-year-old girls.

WOHL: One was, one said it happened when she was 13. She didn’t show up at her press conference and mysteriously dismissed her complaint against him shortly thereafter. I mean she, the girl also admits, Martha, during this time that she was suffering from drug addiction, alcohol abuse. She was basically incorrigible.

MACCALLUM: That’s not the point, David. It’s not a question of her character; it’s a question of his character. He was the adult, he was 32 years old. And so the question is whether or not, and she said I went along with it, I went to his house a couple of times. It’s really not that question of her going, it’s a question of whether or not he did this. And I’m not hearing in what his statement is saying, and I understand that this is obviously a hugely politically charged environment. His opponents are looking for anything they can possibly find to take him down. This is a long-held Republican seat.  Everybody gets all of that. The question is whether or not this happened and whether or not voters are going to hold that against him.
