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:

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:

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:

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:

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.
