Well, THIS certainly changes the math on the Biden accusation. It’s no slam dunk, but it’s evidence that needs serious consideration.
Considering Biden’s central role in the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas incident which unfolded a few years BEFORE the alleged incident here, you’d expect that he would be held to
Seeing how the press dog-piled some ‘enemies’ of the Democrats with completely unfounded allegations, you’d expect that an accusation against the Left would get SOME attention once evidence started piling up, right?
A NEW PIECE of evidence has emerged buttressing the credibility of Tara Reade’s claim that she told her mother about allegations of sexual harassment and assault related to her former boss, then-Sen. Joe Biden. Biden, through a spokesperson, has denied the allegations. Reade has claimed to various media outlets, including The Intercept, that she told her mother, a close friend, and her brother about both the harassment and, to varying degrees of detail, the assault at the time. Her brother, Collin Moulton, and her friend, who has asked to remain anonymous, both confirmed that they heard about the allegations from Reade at the time. Reade’s mother died in 2016, but both her brother and friend also confirmed Reade had told her mother, and that her mother, a longtime feminist and activist, urged her to go to the police.
In interviews with The Intercept, Reade also mentioned that her mother had made a phone call to “Larry King Live” on CNN, during which she made reference to her daughter’s experience on Capitol Hill. Reade told The Intercept that her mother called in asking for advice after Reade, then in her 20s, left Biden’s office. “I remember it being an anonymous call and her saying my daughter was sexually harassed and retaliated against and fired, where can she go for help? I was mortified,” Reade told me. — Intercept
Here is the clip of the phone call in question:

Turns out, the phone call really happened, and — while not explicitly referencing the attack in question, it confirms at least some of general claims alleged, and does so LONG before he became Presidential candidate.
Our site has been pretty consistent from Day One. If someone is accused of a serious crime, he should get his day in court to FAIRLY have his case heard.
Kavanaugh, for instance, was declared ‘guilty’ (so to speak) not by rules of evidence in a court of law, but by partisan media in the court of public opinion. Once the facts saw the clear light of day, accusations against him fell apart. Not a single corroborating witness backed her story up. Other accusations against him were under investigation for false statements charges.
Trump and any number of other Republicans get the same ‘denounce-first-ask-questions-later’ treatment. Negative press against Leftists, on the other hand, is harder to come by. It was only AFTER Hillary lost 2016, for instance, that Leftist press was willing to admit that Bill Clinton got a complete pass on the Juanita Broadrrick assault claims, some even saying that yes, Bill probably *did* sexually assault her.
Gee thanks for coming out AFTER the Clintons were no longer politically useful to you, Captain Courageous. Ditto with Weinstein and Epstein. And Ed Buck. (Weren’t they ALL big-time Dem donors? Huh, that’s a little weird.)
Those stories were conveniently deep-sixed until the accusations got so loud that even the corrupt media could no longer pretend they weren’t there.
Let’s watch what happens when they are confronted with some uncomfortable evidence against their own party’s nominee.
Will they dispassionately follow the evidence where it leads? Or will they circle the wagons and defend Biden to their dying breath?
It’s a dangerous gambit. They’ve reduced their credibility to tatters — again and again.
Good luck hiding this story, folks. It’s already been made into a meme.
Rest in peace to the Biden campaign pic.twitter.com/oKBluTf1Iu
