After about five weeks after Tara Reade’s sexual assault story came out to the public, Joe Biden has finally been forced to face the allegations made against him after mounting pressure surrounding the topic began to pile up.
However, it might have been better for Biden to have completely ignored the story because upon being interviewed by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi (who admittedly did a pretty good job here and didn’t lob softballs at Joe, as was honestly expected by everyone, including Joe), he fumbled and stumbled his way through the interview and only came out of it not only looking more unfit to be president but that he might even have something to hide, suggesting the probability of his guilt (and let’s not discount the probability he has done worse stuff as well).
You see, Mika began by asking the following:
“The first [question], about the University of Delaware records. Do you agree with the reporting that those records were supposed to be revealed to the public and then they were resealed for a longer time until, quote, after you leave public life? And if you agree with that, if that’s what happened, why did that happen?”
Mika is referring to the University of Delaware having scheduled to release Biden’s Senate papers (which were donated to them by Biden in 2012) in December of last year, but backtracked on that idea after Joe announced his candidacy for president.
Joe responded with:
“The fact is, that there’s are a lot of things – speeches I’ve made, positions I’ve taken, interviews that I did overseas with people, all of those things relating to my job. And the idea that they would all be made public, and the fact while I was running for public office, they could really be taken out of context. The papers are position papers – they are documents that existed, for example, when I met with Putin, or when I met with whomever. And all of that to be fodder in a campaign at this time – I don’t know of anybody who’s done anything like that.”
Navigating through the word jungle that Biden just expelled from his mouth, we find the following argument: “they shouldn’t release the records because I am running for president and it could hurt me.”
Does that sound like a good argument? He is literally arguing that people shouldn’t get access to his Senate records because they could be used against him. Well, considering they could have EVIDENCE OF SHOWING HE COULD HAVE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED TARA READE, I would imagine they ought to be used against him in a court of law.
This particular exchange is why I say that he makes himself out to look like he has something to hide, or even like he actually did it. Even when further pressured about the issue, when Mika suggested just looking for the records that have Reade’s name on them to avoid the other confidential stuff with Putin or whomever else, Joe still was adamant that they do not be released or used at all.
It makes it all the more suspicious that Biden has sent campaign operatives to the university to go through the records. I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden’s Senate papers all of a sudden got “lost” at some point in the future.
In any case, as Biden further pushed back against the idea that his Senate records be released, Mika resorted to asking the following:
“Are you certain there was nothing about Tara Reade in those records, and, if so, why not approve a search of her name in those records?”
Basically, the question is “if you are certain that Reade never made a complaint of that nature, why not allow for people to look through the records with just her name?” In essence, why not prove your innocence by showing there is nothing in those records about Reade’s complaints.
Biden responded seemingly confused: “Approve a search of her name?” I don’t think he was confused by the question, but by the fact he likely didn’t expect such a question. It’s a good and fairly tough one, and as I said previously, he probably expected this interview to be easy – giving him a chance to respond to the allegations, deny them, and basically be done with it without having to answer too much with regards to it.
Biden eventually responded with: “There is nothing. They are not there. I don’t understand the point you are trying to make. There are no personnel records by definition.”
Mika, at one point, once again pushed the question: “Are you absolutely certain, are you absolutely positive, there is no record of any complaint by Tara Reade against you?”
Biden’s response was perhaps the most confusing mess out of the whole ordeal and further goes to show Joe’s mental decline:
“I am absolutely positive that no one that I’m aware of ever was been made aware of any complaint a formal complaint made by or a complaint by Tara Reade against me at the time this was alleged happened 27 years ago or until they I announced for pres – well, I guess it was in April or May of this year.”
A couple of things about this. First, what?
Second, I find it a tad funny that at the end, it kind of sounds like he just jumped aboard a completely different train of thought.
Third, what does he mean “well, I guess it was in April or May of this year”? What is he referring to? The previous “sentence” doesn’t exactly help me pick up any context clues, but that was a particularly strange part. The fact that he also said “May of this year” is odd because that interview happened on the first of May, early in the morning.
Now, one could chuck it up to Joe saying absolute nonsense, or even forgetting what month it was (it’s a possibility given everything we have seen and heard from him, including the attempt at speech that he made just prior), but it’s like his mind completely switched gears to say “Oh, yeah, now I remember something and it could’ve been this.” The problem is I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT!
Is he talking about the formal complaint made against him that (most likely) is in his records? Is he talking about someone on his team coming up to him to remind him of this event or something related to it? I don’t even have a clue as to what he could possibly have meant, assuming he meant anything substantial at all.
Regardless of what he meant in that particular confusing moment, the other parts only go to show his possible and probable guilt. He doesn’t want anyone getting access to his Senate records, even if it’s just to search Tara Reade’s name in the records. He got awfully defensive here and likely for good reason.
Even former Hillary Clinton adviser Peter Daou absolutely RAILED Biden as the interview was happening: “THERE ARE ***SEVEN*** OTHER ALLEGATIONS AGAINST [Biden]. THERE ARE YEARS OF GROPING ON VIDEO. IT’S A PATTERN.”
And that’s likely the other reason as to why Biden doesn’t want to release the Senate records. It’s not simply that we might find Tara Reade’s complaint in there. It’s that we might find many other Tara Reade’s in there. As I have said time and time again with regard to this topic: Joe Biden’s sexual predation is well documented, with the mildest of things being inappropriate touching or sniffing of women’s and girls’ hair.
If you remember, back when I first talked about this story, I noted how a Nevada politician, Lucy Flores, “alleged that Biden had inappropriately sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head as she waited to go on stage at a rally in 2014.”
If you remember, I also noted how the witches at “The View” attacked Flores over this, seemingly choosing to not believe that particular woman (and color me surprised that many on the Left are choosing to believe Biden over the woman accusing him of sexual assault in 1993 and CNN choosing to delete an episode of the Larry King show that had Tara Reade’s mother calling in to the show to talk about the then-Senator’s assault, obviously excluding names).
If we got Biden’s Senate papers showing the likely VARIOUS complaints made against him, I would agree with Joe that they could be used against his presidential campaign, though for PRETTY GOOD REASON AS HE WOULD SHOW A TRACK RECORD OF SEXUAL PREDATION!
Of course, Leftists will try to pivot and point to Trump as being a “sexual predator” even though the allegations made against him are unfounded and without evidence completely (they tried this tactic in October in 2016 and the allegations all of a sudden stopped being a major story after he won).
However, no amount of spinning or pivoting can erase the likelihood of Tara Reade’s story being true and credible. Joe’s response to it has also been pretty abysmal, having pretty much ignored it as much as he possibly could until mounting pressure forced him to address it and delivering terrible answers to tough but fair and good questions from Mika (again, kudos to her for that).
Here’s hoping those Senate records don’t mysteriously “disappear”.
