Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is former Vice President Joe Biden’s newest defender in the face of Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual misconduct. The former presidential candidate said that she was satisfied with Biden’s denial:
“I saw the reports of what Ms. Reade said, I saw an interview with Vice President Biden. I appreciate that the vice president took a lot of questions, tough questions. And he answered them directly and respectfully. The vice president's answers were credible and convincing.“— Manu Raju (@mkraju) May 4, 2020
Though Sen. Warren claims that she “appreciates” that the Democratic frontrunner took questions regarding the allegations, but does not indicate that Reade should have the chance to tell her story without repercussions from Biden allies. Sen. Warren’s stance on misconduct claims, now made against the presumed presidential nominee for her party, is staunchly different from Sen. Warren’s previous rhetoric. As her Democratic colleagues also have, Sen. Warren committed to “believing women” who make such accusations, at least when a conservative jurist was accused. Sen. Warren also demanded that then-Judge Kavanaugh release any and all documents related to his time in President George W. Bush’s White House and other public service roles. In the interest of transparency, Kavanaugh and Senate Republican leadership compiled and released all documentation; Sen. Warren has yet to comment on the hidden records from Biden’s 36-year tenure in the Senate, which the former vice president refuses to unseal:
Brett Kavanaugh has played along with the Trump Administration hiding tens of thousands of pages of documents from his time in government service, and now more questions. We need a full and fair investigation – what is he hiding?— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) September 17, 2018
Sen. Warren even believed deranged New York lawyer Michael Avenatti, who has since been indicted on fraud charges, and the bizarre, unsubstantiated claims against then-Judge Kavanaugh, made by his client Julie Swetnick:
The events described by Julie Swetnick, Ms. Ramirez & Dr. Ford are absolutely heart-wrenching. The idea that the Senate would continue this confirmation process without an FBI investigation is even more revolting.— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) September 26, 2018
@realDonaldTrump must withdraw Brett Kavanaugh's nomination.
In a Democratic debate, as Michael Bloomberg was under fire for hidden Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) given to female employees and claims of sexual harassment, Sen. Warren questioned why anyone would not believe women making these claims:
“This one is personal to me... People say, ‘Oh I can’t really believe the woman.’ Really? Why not?”— Eoin Higgins (@EoinHiggins_) May 5, 2020
Such a change in her views, for political convenience, is unsurprising from Sen. Warren, who has spent most of her career lying about her heritage and experiences for political gain. Sen. Warren is a top pick among Democratic voters to be Biden’s vice president.
Even if Sen. Warren ultimately believes that Biden is innocent of Reade’s claims, the Massachusetts senator and self-proclaimed feminist champion does not even offer the former Biden aide the space to safely tell her story.
