With the GOP set to take over the House at the start of next year, things could get a bit more difficult for Joe Biden. Running up to the 2022 election, Republicans promised hearings and investigations into a number of issues and situations involving the president.
According to former Joe Biden aide Tara Reade, in 1993, when the president was still a senator, he pinned her against a wall, reached under her clothing, and sexually violated her. A police report was filed, but there was no investigation into the incident.
Reade told the Daily Caller that it would be time for House Republicans to investigate the matter once they held the majority and said that she would agree to testify under oath. She stated that it would be a “very different thing” to testify and that she would provide any information Congress requested and answer any questions that were asked. She also said, “I think we need to have the conversation, instead of me being erased, and other women that were erased that tried to come forward.”
“For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.” Luke 8:17
Reade’s coworkers in Biden’s office at the time said they had no knowledge of the incident and denied that Reade talked with them about the matter. The New York Times has said that Reade could not provide a specific time, date, or location for the incident. According to the report in the Daily Caller, Marianne Baker, who was the executive assistant at the time, stated:
In the Daily Caller story, Reade maintains that if the staff had to testify under oath, they might have to admit something “very different.” She also alleges that Biden engaged in other behaviors before the alleged assault: “He would put his fingers underneath the back of my neck, underneath my hair, and then run his finger up and down. He would massage my shoulders, and touch me. It was just weird.”
The Biden camp has denied the allegations.
But Biden may not enjoy as much cover on this as he might hope. As Fox News noted on Thursday, incoming House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries said during the 2020 election that he felt that Reade’s allegations need to be taken seriously and even investigated. Jefferies said to WNYC, “It’s got to be taken seriously because this is a serious allegation raised by a serious individual and needs to be investigated seriously. We’ve probably got to hear from him at some point directly. I’m not really in a position to say what is the appropriate mechanism, although this needs to be taken seriously.”
Much has been made about Joe Biden’s proclivity for smelling hair and touching women and girls, and with good reason since there is ample video evidence for it. But this goes beyond “creepy Uncle Joe” jokes. This is a man who was elected to the most powerful position in the world. If Reade’s allegations are true, there were people who knew what he did and continued to support him as a senator and as president.
