At least two additional sources have claimed that former Senate staffer Tara Reade told them about aspects of her sexual harassment and assault claims against former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a new report.
The Associated Press revealed Saturday that its reporting uncovered two sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and who added to the already-mixed bag of individuals either corroborating or casting doubt on Reade’s claims.
One friend, who said they knew Reade in 1993, said she told them about the alleged assault when it happened, according to The AP. The second friend met Reade more than a decade after the alleged incident and confirmed that Reade had a conversation with them in 2007 or 2008 about allegedly experiencing sexual harassment from Biden while working in his Senate office.
Reade claimed she told three of Biden’s other staff members about harassment, although none of them reportedly said they remembered hearing those allegations from her. However, two other individuals, including a former neighbor of Reade’s, corroborated her sexual-assault allegation in a report released earlier this week.
In addition to the two sources reported Saturday by The Associated Press, that makes at least four people who have corroborated Reade’s allegations of either sexual assault or harassment against Biden.
Lynda LaCasse, one of Reade’s former neighbors, reportedly claimed that Reade shared details about the alleged assault in the mid-1990s. One of Reade’s former colleagues, Lorraine Sanchez, also told Business Insider that she remembered Reade complaining that her former boss harassed her.
Reade was one of eight women who came forward last year with allegations that Biden made them feel uncomfortable with inappropriate displays of affection. Biden acknowledged the complaints at the time and promised to be “more mindful about respecting personal space in the future.”
After reviewing interviews with Reade from 2019, The AP interviewed her again on Friday. The outlet claims that Reade says she filed a limited report with a congressional personnel office at the time that did not explicitly accuse Biden of sexual assault or harassment.
“I remember talking about him wanting me to serve drinks because he liked my legs and thought I was pretty and it made me uncomfortable,” Reade reportedly said. “I know that I was too scared to write about the sexual assault.”
Reade said she described her issues with Biden but “the main word I used — and I know I didn’t use sexual harassment — I used ‘uncomfortable.’ And I remember ‘retaliation.’”
Reade has denied this report, however, tweeting after the article’s publication that The AP’s report was “false.”
Reade later told Fox News that the “story itself is correct” but that the headline is “wrong.”
An Associated Press spokesperson told Fox News that it “stands by its story.”
“I do not know what is on the form until we see it. I filed a sexual harassment complaint and included retaliation,” Reade said.
Reade said she told The AP that she had filed an “intake form” regarding sexual harassment but did not disclose the alleged sexual assault in the complaint.
“I asked AP to retract [the] headline,” Reade told Fox News.
On Saturday evening, The AP changed its headline to “Reade: ‘I didn’t use sexual harassment’ in Biden complaint.”
“The headline of this story was changed for clarity and to incorporate a direct quote from Reade,” an editor’s note read at the bottom of the article.
However, Reade told Fox News that it’s “still incorrect” and “misleading.”
“They’re standing by the fact… that I said I don’t think I used the term ‘sexual harassment.’ We didn’t use it as much back in 1993, so I don’t know but that’s not to say that there isn’t a box that I didn’t check. Until we get that form, we don’t know,” Reade explained.
The existence of the Senate report has become a key element of the accusations against Biden, which he has flatly denied. Reade says she doesn’t have a copy of the report, and Biden said Friday that he is not aware that any complaint against him exists. He asked the Senate and the National Archives to search their records to try to locate a complaint from Reade.
So, there are four corroborating witness.
That is more than the Democrats had to support their erroneous claims against Former Judge, now Associate Supreme Court Justice, Bret Kavanaugh.
Why are the Democratic Elite, the Founders of the #MeToo Movement, so quiet about the allegations of sexual abuse against their presumptive Presidential Candidate?
What happened to “Every woman has a right to be heard”?
Does the presumption of guilt involving a claim of sexual abuse only hold true if the accused is a Conservative Republican?
Or, considering Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer, only if they are not the presumptive Democratic President Candidate?
Isn’t it funny how things have come back to bite all of the self-righteous Democrats in Washington, New York, and Hollywood right in the gluteus maximus?
From the moment that the revelations about Hollywood Producer and star maker Harvey Weinstein to Charlie Rose to Matt Lauer to Tom Brokaw to Less Moonves and now, Sleepy Joe Biden, the warm feelings of schadenfreude have brought a smile on my face.
Since Donald J. Trump first announced his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States of America, the MSM and the Entertainment Industry have been accusing President Trump of being the biggest Lothario since Adam took a bite out of an apple offered to him by a naked woman.
Their desperation to bring down a sitting President has transcended the bounds of broadcast journalism to the point to where broadcast news outlets now resemble a revolutionary faction vying for power in Venezuela.
This desperation has led them to publish unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own still hurt feelings over their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.
The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.
The funny thing is, that during all of those decades of Liberal Self-righteousness, CBS, NBC and other Liberal Show Biz Organizations were condoning sexual harassment and intolerance in their own corporate confines, just like the Democratic Elite who stride the Halls of Congress have excused Joe Biden’s sexual abuse of women as “just Joe being Joe”.
The same bunch of “morally superior” East and West Coast Liberals, who have been insulting and talking down to average Americans, from their positions of notoriety and power, simply because we believe in Traditional American Faith and Values and we would not swallow the Kool-aid they we offering during the 2016 Presidential Campaign and elected Donald J Trump as President, instead of the Queen of Mean, knew all along about the debauchery going on both behind closed doors and out in their open in their “places of business”.
It takes a special sort of hypocrite to sit in judgment as their have with all of their sexual harassment baggage neatly hidden away…or so they thought.
And now, it has all come back to bite them.
No wonder Nancy Pelosi refuses to allow Congress to reconvene.
As Popeye the Sailor used to say,
Tsk, tsk. How embarrasskin’.
