With public pressure mounting that the accuser’s story be given a fair hearing, more witnesses are coming up. And these ones have a key difference from the ones brought in to accuse Kavanaugh.
These ones have the credibility boost that comes with speaking against their own interests. It’s not conclusive proof, by any means. And he still deserves a fair hearing. But it’s more credible than someone with a personal or political grudge popping up out of the woodwork to lodge a complaint.
Several corroborating witnesses — some of whom support Biden’s run for President — remember Tara Reade speaking about this incident back in ’93.
In March, when a former aide to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden accused the candidate of sexually assaulting her in 1993, two people came forward to say that the woman, Tara Reade, had told them of the incident shortly after it allegedly occurred — her brother, Collin Moulton, and a friend who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution.
Now two more sources have come forward to corroborate certain details about Reade’s claims. One of them — a former neighbor of Reade’s — has told Insider for the first time, on the record, that Reade disclosed details about the alleged assault to her in the mid-1990s.
“This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it,” Lynda LaCasse, who lived next door to Reade in the mid-’90s, told Insider.
The other source, Lorraine Sanchez, who worked with Reade in the office of a California state senator in the mid-’90s, told Insider that she recalls Reade complaining at the time that her former boss in Washington, DC, had sexually harassed her, and that she had been fired after raising concerns. –Source: BusinessInsider
This tweet did not age well…
In fact, it aged about as poorly as Hillary’s tweet: “Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault,” Clinton said. “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed and we’re with you.”
(Juanita Broaddrick would like a word with her on that score, to be sure.)
We only hope that Joe gets the same fair and impartial hearing on this issue that he gave to Justice Clarence Thomas. Oh, wait. The presumption of innocence went right out the window there, didn’t it? And to this day, Biden is backing Anita and (by extension) presuming the guilt of Thomas.
The media’s running out of ways to cover for Sleepy Joe. And he can barely complete a sentence, anyway, let alone ‘Slick Willy’ his way out of this scrape.
What’s this going to do to his nomination? That’s the real wildcard in this story, isn’t it?
