Joe Biden never expected to be betrayed by such a trusted partner.
Tara Reade’s accusation of sexual assault is now impossible to ignore.
A jaw-dropping admission from Joe Biden’s top ally exposed a big cover-up.
The more honest Democrats are admitting that the allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden are extremely problematic.
Joe Biden’s behavior towards women was known to be improper even before Tara Reade came forward with her claims that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her when she was an aide at his Senate office in 1993.
The videos of Joe Biden getting uncomfortably close to young girls is troubling to watch.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was honest enough to admit that this should not be the end of the investigation into Tara Reade’s claims.
“There have been investigative journalists that have corroborated certain aspects of her account – that is undeniable – [and] have raised questions about other aspects of her account,” Ocasio-Cortez said to NPR.
“It certainly seems as though something has happened. I’m not sure,” the congresswoman continued. “Frankly, this is a messy moment, and I think we need to acknowledge that – that it is not clear-cut.”
Ocasio-Cortez is in the minority of Democrats admitting that there may be substance to the allegations.
Nancy Pelosi says she will not take any more questions on the subject and the DNC declined to investigate the allegations.
For most Democrats, the question of whether Biden is still electable is more important than whether or not he committed a crime.
One prominent journalist was honest enough to admit that he doesn’t care if Joe Biden is guilty or not.
Journalist Martin Tolchin, the founder of Politico, wrote in response to The New Yok Times to criticize them for calling on the DNC to investigate the allegations against Biden in an unbiased way.
Tolchin doesn’t think that Biden should be investigated at all because it’s more important to beat Trump.
“I don’t want an investigation,” Tolchin wrote. “I want a coronation of Joe Biden. Would he make a great president? Unlikely. Would he make a good president? Good enough. Would he make a better president than the present occupant? Absolutely. I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance.”
“Suppose an investigation reveals damaging information concerning his relationship with Tara Reade or something else, and Mr. Biden loses the nomination to Senator Bernie Sanders or someone else with a minimal chance of defeating Mr. Trump,” he continued. “Should we really risk the possibility?”
The goal of journalism is to inform voters.
The idea that the media would keep people in the dark just to score a political victory is disgusting.
Justice does matter.
If Joe Biden is an innocent man, the media can prove it with a thorough investigation, and if Biden is guilty, voters deserve to know that too.
No one should be fighting to hide the evidence, especially not a journalist.
