Joe Biden To Address Tara Reade’s Allegation On Morning Joe Friday

Biden has yet to directly address the allegation.

Joe Biden is slated to address Tara Reade’s allegation of sexual assault against the former Vice President on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday. Biden’s remarks on the matter will be the first time he’s spoken on the allegation, which his campaign denied in a statement released earlier this month.

Pressure has mounted upon the former Vice President to deny the allegation directly. Tara Reade, a California woman who worked as a U.S. Senate aide in in the 1990’s, is describing an incident in which Biden allegedly pushed her against the wall of a Senate office and penetrated her with his fingers in 1993. Biden was a Delaware U.S. Senator at the time.

Several witnesses have come forward with accounts of Reade recounting the alleged incident to them at the time. Lynda LaCasse, a woman who was Reade’s neighbor in 1995 and 96, has described Reade telling her of the alleged incident. “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.”

Leading Democrats have mostly brushed off Reade’s allegation as they unite around the party establishment figure for the 2020 election. Nancy Pelosi said she was merely “satisfied” by Biden’s denial of the allegation, a whopping double standard for Democrats who required far less to demand Brett Kavanaugh’s withdrawal from Supreme Court confirmation processes.

President Donald Trump encouraged his general election opponent to address the allegation when asked about the situation Thursday, stating that it is possible the allegation could be false. It appears Biden’s Republican opponent is far more willing to recognize due process than Democrats such Kirsten Gillibrand, who demanded Brett Kavanaugh withdraw his nomination while maintaining an endorsement of Biden on the basis of his “vehement denial” of Reade’s allegations.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
