Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade is demanding that media outlets question Kamala Harris about Reade’s sexual assault allegation against the presumptive presidential nominee, especially since the Democrats appear to be, in her words, enabling predatory behavior.
So far, it’s been “radio silence” from the mainstream media, however, she noted. which is hardly surprising since most news outlets they are glorifying the Harris pick and downplayed or ignored Reade’s allegations since they emerged in March.
Reade, a lifelong Democrat, recalled how the U.S. Senator from California and would-be vice president demonized Brett Kavanaugh over unfounded, last-minute allegations of misbehavior during his contentious Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
“Journalists should be asking her pointedly why there was a smear campaign on me and why Kamala was so aggressive and assertive with Kavanaugh and here she knows there is a credible sexual assault accusation against Senator Biden,” she told NewsBusters.
She added that she won’t be intimidated from speaking out despite the blowback.
Reade disregarded all the praise predictably being heaped on the Biden-Harris ticket from the usual quarters.
“I don’t care if oligarchs or celebrities are supporting him. What is more important to me is sexual assault survivors are allowed to come forward and have their stories told. By coming out, I lost a lot. But I don’t regret it.”
Reade claims that Biden allegedly sexually assaulted her in 1993 when she was an aide in the then-Delaware Senator’s Capitol Hill office.
Although this may be a rhetorical question given how power-hungry the Democrats are, Reade wondered if Harris will stay silent about holding Biden accountable for political reasons.
“To approach sexual violence as a partisan issue is not only dismissive to the survivors and dangerous to the victims. It is the reason why survivors are afraid to come forward. The Democratic Party has become an enabler to sexual predators.”
In a May 2020 interview with Megyn Kelly, Tara Reade said that Biden should drop his presidential bid. As a California resident, she also revealed that she previously brought her misconduct allegation directly to Harris’ attention.
As far as Epstein’s friend Bill Clinton delivering a speech at the upcoming Democrat National Convention, Tara Reade described the speaking slot as “unconscionable.”
“Remember, I’m a lifelong Democrat. I voted for him and believed in him. It is unconscionable that he is being allowed to speak and it speaks volumes about the Democratic National Committee… The only way we can stop human trafficking and sexual violence is to call it out and shine a light on it and not allow these people to continue in power.”
When Kamala Harris was still a presidential candidate fighting for two percent of the primary vote, she indicated that she believed the various women who came forward to accuse Biden of inappropriate touching.
During an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle last April, in reference to Reade, Kamala Harris said “Listen, this woman has a right to tell her story, and I believe that, and I believe Joe Biden believes that, too. I’ve spent my whole career fighting like you said, Joe, to give women a voice, and this brings up I think a bigger structural issue frankly, which is that women must be able to speak without fear of retaliation…She has a right to tell her story, and she shouldn’t face any repercussions for that, but the Joe Biden I know is somebody that really has fought for women and empowerment of women and women’s equality and rights.”
On Wednesday, President Trump reminded everyone that Harris said some “horrible things” about Biden during the primary season, including implying that he was a racist.
In a May 2020 MSNBC interview, Joe Biden claimed that he didn’t remember Tara Reade, but that “if [feminists] believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
