According to the Business Insider, two more sources–one a former neighbor and the other a former co-worker–have come forward to corroborate certain details about Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation against former VP and 2020 Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden.
During the Kavanaugh hearings, Biden said, “For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time.”
Where is that guy now?
I saw the CNN tape on Larry King from 1993, where Biden’s accuser, Tara Reade’s mother, called in to make a statement against the Delaware Senator without naming names. Over the weekend CNN finally aired that video, but nobody has any answers.
#BREAKING: HERE is the video from August 11,1993's 'Larry King Live' described by @TheIntercept (and Tara Reade) as allegedly featuring her mother calling in and alluding to Reade's sexual assault claims against @JoeBiden (blog here by @ScottJW) https://t.co/fCgEqBnX7n pic.twitter.com/V5FGHskv56

Objective reporting for the educated American.
In addition to LaCasse, Lorraine Sanchez, a former legislative staffer to California State Senator Jack O’Connell, told Business Insider that Reade lamented about being “sexually harassed by her former boss while she was in DC.”
“What I do remember,” Sanchez explained “is reassuring her that nothing like that would ever happen to her here in our office, that she was in a safe place, free from any sexual harassment.”
Sanchez recounts that Reade was talking about Biden.
Sanchez lauded Reade’s resolve to speak out about her allegation, telling Business Insider: “It takes great courage and strength to come forward.”
“It’s much easier to keep silent. However, I also understand the duty we have as women to share our story regardless of who the perpetrator may be,” she added.
Sanchez reportedly worked with Reade between 1994 and 1996.
Biden, along with Democrat leaders, said we should always believe the women. But it increasingly seems as though that sentiment only applies when Republicans are accused of misconduct.
The big question is this, why isn’t the media making a bigger fuss over Reade’s allegations and others like it? Don’t forget, a woman came forward a year ago after Biden announced his candidacy to complain about unwanted touching. The Democrats soon silenced her. Notice all of Biden’s and Bill Clinton’s accusers are themselves Democrats.
Ultimately, the DNC put forth a ragtag bunch of misfits for the presidency and settled upon an aged career politician, with diminishing mental acuity and zero notable accomplishments in his almost half a century in public office.
Let’s see if CNN and MSNBC give Biden the same treatment as Brett Kavanaugh. I won’t hold my breath.
