Two More People Come Forward to Corroborate Account of Biden Accuser
Just days ago a journalist for The Intercept published a transcript from a 1993 episode of Larry King Live that corroborated one particular claim of Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade.
In interviews, Reade had mentioned that her mother had made a phone call into King’s show, in which she made reference to her experience being sexually harassed by a Senator. “I remember it being an anonymous call and her saying my daughter was sexually harassed and retaliated against and fired, where can she go for help? I was mortified” Reade said.
The Intercept confirmed that that call did take place, and that Reade’s mother said what her daughter said she said.
The right-wing Media Research Center was able to track down and publish the video of the exchange from their archive before CNN was. Only CNN could be a day late on reporting on a story that occurred on their very network.
While CNN did cover the new development (because they had to), they quickly deleted that particular Larry King Live episode off of their archive on “Google Play,” as if that wouldn’t just alert more people to the video’s existence.
And now, there’s even more corroboration of Reade’s claims, as two individuals have come forward to support her allegations.
According to Business Insider:
Two more sources have come forward to corroborate certain details about Reade’s claims. One of them — a former neighbor of Reade’s — has told Insider for the first time, on the record, that Reade disclosed details about the alleged assault to her in the mid-1990s.
“This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it,” Lynda LaCasse, who lived next door to Reade in the mid-1990s, told Insider.
The other source, Lorraine Sanchez, who worked with Reade in the office of a California state senator in the mid-1990s, told Insider that she recalls Reade complaining at the time that her former boss in Washington DC had sexually harassed her, and that she had been fired after raising concerns.
Business insider sought access to Biden’s senatorial papers, which are housed at the University of Delaware to see if they could shine any additional light on Reade’s claims. However, the University denid the request, claiming that they would be closed off to the public until two years after Biden retires from public life.
What will Biden’s fellow Democrats have to say about this?
Given their reaction thus far, probably nothing.
