Lawyers for& Joe Biden sex accuser Tara Reade & on Monday demanded that JOE China! Went a head, and opened up his archives at the University of Delaware and pushed a Senate official to hand over any documents related to the case which makes sense right he kept saying if any record was made it would be there? Now what are the chances that for former V.P in charge of getting people fired in Ukraine won’t have any docs there someone decided to make them gone?
Multiple sources have now corroborated former staffer Tara Reade’s sexual assault claims against Joe Biden, so why aren’t more media outlets covering the story? Mike Papantonio and Farron Cousins discuss.
Top sex-harassment lawyer Douglas Wigdor told Biden that he must “authorize a search [of his university archives] to determine whether they contain any records related to Ms. Reade” evoking the former US senator from Delaware’s controversial handling of the Anita Hill controversy in 1991. Biden was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that weighed Hill’s sex-harass allegations against then-US Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas and has since apologized for his actions at the time. “You have been criticized heavily about being Chairman of the all-white, all-male Judiciary Committee that grilled Professor Hill in excruciatingly graphic detail (including about penis size, pubic hair and pornographic film stars),” Wigdor wrote Biden. Noting the former Bidens’s Mea culpa since, Wigdor said he hopes it does “not ring hollow” now. “Ms. Reade too is entitled to the process she deserves,” the lawyer wrote. Biden’s Senate papers are archived at the university, and Reade’s camp has said the trove potentially includes a complaint she filed with a congressional personnel office in 1993 after he allegedly stuck his hand up her skirt and said, “I want to f–k you.” Biden has denied the claim, said he is unaware of any complaint and refused to open up his archives, saying they do not contain “personnel files” and that other information in them could be used against him during his continuing presidential campaign.
But Wigdor fired back in the letter, “To be frank, we … see no reason why an efficient, diligent and fair search of the Archives cannot be completed in short order.” Wigdor also sent a letter to the general counsel for Secretary of the Senate Julie Adams, who has already turned down Reade’s request for a copy of her alleged personnel complaint, saying that even if it existed, she has “no discretion to disclose any such information,” citing confidentiality restrictions. Wigdor noted that Biden had already agreed to allow the Senate secretary to release the document, if it exists — but that this was just a “disingenuous” ploy on his part, since he knew what Adams would say.
Regardless, “To put it simply, there is no basis, either in law, equity or common sense, for the Secretary to refuse to reproduce a copy of Ms. Reade’s [complaint] to her,” Widgor wrote Adams’ counsel. Asked for comment Monday, a Biden rep sent The Post a previous statement his camp has made on the subject. “As someone who committed himself to changing the culture surrounding violence against women in this country, Vice President Biden knows it is paramount that women should come forward and be heard respectfully,” the statement said. “But it is also the duty of the press to base their assessments of claims on careful and exhaustive review of the facts. And an inescapable fact in the case of these false allegations is that more and more inconsistencies keep emerging.” Adams’ office did not respond to a request for comment.
