With a new Department of Justice (DOJ) court filing showing that the feds have compiled “corroborating evidence” that allegations that Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and his mega-donor Dr. Salomon Melgen solicited underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski tweeted that Breitbart News’ Matthew Boyle and GotNews’ Chuck Johnson “were right” all along.

“[I]t looks like” Boyle and Johnson “were right about Menendez according to latest FBI filing,” Kaczynski tweeted on Tuesday, referencing an earlier Tweet about the DOJ filing based off a Breitbart News story on the matter Monday evening.

Boyle had broken the story while working for The Daily Caller before the 2012 election and shortly thereafter came to work for Breitbart News. Johnson, then a freelancer, helped contribute research to the story, and since went on to found GotNews.

Boyle, Johnson and David Martosko—the former executive editor of The Daily Caller who went on to become Washington editor of the U.K. Daily Mail—wrote several followup stories digging into the same matter. All three were the subject of vicious and false attacks mainstream media-wide over their now-proven accurate reporting–including, most egregiously, from the Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig and Manuel Roig-Franzia, who inaccurately accused them of being part of a Cuban plot to take down Menendez.
