So this is weird. Early today there was a report that Tara Reade, the woman who is accusing Joe Biden of sexual harassment, remembers her mother calling in to CNN to talk about what had happened to her.
In August ’93, the month Tara Reade left Biden’s office, a woman called the Larry King show saying her daughter had problems at a prominent senator’s office but did not want to go to the press about it. The woman was Reade’s late mother. https://t.co/KHpqDlrpOG pic.twitter.com/9SnX6P6gI7

Then someone found the video:
#BREAKING: HERE is the video from August 11,1993’s ‘Larry King Live’ described by @TheIntercept (and Tara Reade) as allegedly featuring her mother calling in and alluding to Reade’s sexual assault claims against @JoeBiden (blog here by @ScottJW) https://t.co/fCgEqBnX7n pic.twitter.com/V5FGHskv56

Now, Reade’s mother only obliquely references the accusations, but it’s definitely there. And Reade says that she believes that is her mother.
This is my mom. I miss her so much and her brave support of me. https://t.co/okU80kqWAI

This helps the case that Reade told people about the sexual harassment at the time, which is a key component of proving these kinds of claims. To be fair, it’s still circumstantial. But we ALL know that this kind of evidence is always enough for the media to nail a Republican to the wall. For a Democrat? Not so much…
Here’s more about the heinous accusations against Biden from Tara Reade.
