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".

This came after few women stepped forward, saying Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers.

So far, five women have come forward to accuse Mr. Moore of sexual misconduct almost four decades ago, when Mr. Moore, now 70, was in his 30s. 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.

He wants to make sure that Roy Moore doesn't make it to the Senate and is considering exercising several options, but Mr. Moore remains defiant about stepping down.

The Alabama special election for the Senate seat is a crucial one for the GOP because their already-slim majority could weaken further if they lose that vital seat in a deep red state to a Democrat.

"I believe the women, yes", McConnell said.

Moments before, Colbert displayed a photo of Moore speaking onstage with his arm outstretched and likened him to a "man demonstrating how tall you must be to date him".

Moore is running for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' old Senate seat, now occupied by Sen.
