Sen. Blackburn on Sexual Assault Allegations Against Joe Biden: ‘They Must Be Investigated’
“I have been contacted by many women who they feel as if the Me Too movement has actually served a purpose to make it easier for their daughters and granddaughters to say ‘something wrong was done to me,’ but then they see the Democrats using Me Too when it’s convenient and dismissing it when it is not convenient,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn, (R-TN) said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
“And I will tell you: Listening to Joe Biden‘s [MSNBC] interview yesterday, I said we should call this the ‘pretzel defense.’ He was on every side and contradicting himself and twisting himself in knots,” Blackburn said.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, addressed the issue on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday, denying the allegations, saying “I’m saying unequivocally it never, never happened, and it didn’t. It never happened.”

Blackburn said that sexual assault allegations are too serious to “be something that is used as a political football or as a term of convenience to suit the purposes of the Democrats.”
“They are determined to take down Donald Trump. They do not want anything to happen to Joe Biden. They are so determined to take down President Trump that they are actually going to dismiss someone who has corroborating evidence,” Blackburn continued.
“We will get to the bottom of this. I think that truth will come out,” Blackburn said. “We know that Vice President Biden has had a history of touching people, and kissing and making them uncomfortable.This is serious. Tara Reade deserves to be heard, just like other women deserve to be heard,” concluded Sen. Blackburn.
