Joe Biden’s campaign team is working overtime in order to silence anyone that speaks out about the sexual assault allegation against him. Buzzfeed News released a letter that Biden’s team has sent out to Democrats on how to answer the sexual assault allegations.
Over the last few weeks former Biden staffer from 1993 Tara Reade has spoken out about how Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in the workplace. Joe Biden has not been questioned by the media on this topic, but clearly his team knows the evidence is mounting and eventually the media will have to cover the story.
While Joe Biden has remained publicly silent about a sexual assault allegation made against him, his presidential campaign has sought to coordinate and unify Democratic messaging on the matter, advising surrogates earlier this month to say that the allegation “did not happen.” …
But the messaging shows that while Biden has stayed quiet on the allegations on the eve of his nomination, aides were taking the claims seriously enough behind the scenes to coordinate messaging among other Democrats to try to cast the matter as one that’s been thoroughly vetted and determined to be unfounded.
The letter that Biden’s campaign released on talking points for Democrats to answer the sexual assault questions was released to Buzzfeed News.
The Biden Team Talking points letter reads, “Biden believes that all women have the right to be heard and to have their claims thoroughly reviewed. In this case, a thorough review by the New York Times has led to the truth: this incident did not happen.”
The letter continued, “Here’s the bottom line. Vice President Joe Biden has spent over 40 years in public life: 36 years in the Senate; 7 Senate campaigns, 2 previous presidential runs, two vice presidential campaigns, and 8 years in the White House. There has never been a complaint, allegation, hint or rumor of any impropriety or inappropriate conduct like this regarding him — ever.”
However, The New York Times did not establish Joe Biden was cleared of the allegations nor did they provide evidence Tara Reade is politically motivated and lying. If there were credible journalists asking Biden or Democrats about the allegation they would press them on how the New York Times did not debunk the claims, and Biden does need to give a real answer to the allegation.
