The Associated Press admitted in a report on Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden that it interviewed the former Senate staffer in 2019, only to decline publishing the interview.
The AP claims that it “declined to publish details of the 2019 interviews at the time because reporters were unable to corroborate her allegations, and aspects of her story contradicted other reporting.”
The news organization claims that the interview was later “deleted” in accordance with practices related to old material. However, notes from the interview reveal Reade’s account regarding to Biden engaging in behavior such as touching her shoulders and neck and playing with her hair.
It’s questionable that such an interview was thrown out on the basis of it supposed lack of corroboration, considering Reade did veritably work as a Senate staffer at the time. Some of Reade’s associates have since come forward to corroborate hearing of the claims at the time.
Reade’s allegation is unproven, and we can’t rush to accept anything as fact on the basis of it. The best possible option is to investigate evidence and witness accounts, and AP’s deletion of its interview seems to have disregarded the journalistic imperative to do exactly that.
The AP discussed a Senate report Reade had filed as a Senate staffer about Joe Biden’s conduct, and the news agency claimed the report she had filed didn’t include any reference of sexual harassment or assault. Reade herself denied the AP’s claim about the interview that had buried, stating that the report she filed referenced such conduct.
This is false. https://t.co/w4yXGI1DQm

The report has become a point of contention in Reade’s allegations against the former Delaware Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate, with Biden calling for the Senate or National Archives to release any record of such a complaint against him.
CLOWNWORLD: White House Praises ‘African-American Music Appreciation Month’ During Riots
Behold the leadership of President Kushner.
President Donald Trump has been largely silent on Friday night as the country is set on fire by rioters sending a unified message of racial superiority in cities across the nation.
Although Trump has not said or done much of anything as the nation burns, his administration inexplicably released a proclamation in favor of “African-American Music Appreciation Month 2020” while the nation is torn apart by diversity.
“The lyrics and melodies of African-American music have played a powerful role in defining America’s unique landscape. From the soulful streets of the Big Easy to the recording studios of Los Angeles, African-American music has shaped our American culture,” the proclamation reads.
“During African-American Music Appreciation Month 2020, we pay tribute to the monumental achievements of African-American artists who pioneered and evolved the blues, jazz, gospel, rock and roll, rap, hip-hop, and other iconic genres,” it adds.
The proclamation that was released to the public on early Saturday morning can be seen its entirety here:

African-American Music Appreciation Month 2020 has been around since liberal former President Jimmy Carter decreed that June would serve as a month to honor black music on June 7, 1979. It used to be known as Black Music Month, but former President Barack Hussein Obama updated it with a more politically correct name in 2009. This is a creation of the far left to pander to minorities.
“During African-American Music Appreciation Month, we recall the known and unknown musicians who helped create this musical history. Their contributions help illuminate the human experience and spirit, and they help us reflect on our Nation’s ongoing narrative,” Obama wrote in 2009 as he announced he would be changing the name of the month.
Trump has continued with the tradition of virtue-signaling set by his liberal predecessors, and it could not come at a more humiliating time as the country burns in race riots. Protesters even showed up outside of the White House to cause a commotion, and Trump has said nothing.
Conservatives are growing angry with Trump’s lack of a response in the face of the widespread violence after he ran on the law-and-order candidate in 2016 who would take decisive action to defeat thugs:
We need a Richard Nixon law and order moment and we have Jared Kushner's First Step Act… this is unacceptable. Get a coherent message, smash the mob, and mobilize the national guard around hot zones likely to be raided, looted, and burnt to the ground in major cities.

Where is @realDonaldTrump?

President Trump is clearly listening to his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has hobnobbed with globalists and pushed for leftist-style pandering to racial groups, and his unqualified campaign manager Brad Parscale, who has Karl Rove pulling strings and says immigration is not an issue Trump should run on. These dopes may sink Trump’s re-election efforts if he does not wise up and listen to his populist base fast.
