Tara Reade, the former aide to then-Senator Joe Biden, has become a popular name in the 2020 election after her accusations against the presumptive Democratic nominee were made public.

Reade said Biden sexually assaulted her after being the recipient of his frequent sexual harassment during her tenure in his office. The media needs to ask his new Vice Presidential running mate Kamala Harris if she changed her mind about Biden?

Why? Because Harris had previously made public statements in support of the accusers saying they deserve to be “heard” and that she believed them.

NewsBusters spoke to Reade about the selection and acceptance of Harris as Biden’s running mate. Reade said “journalists should be asking her pointedly” about the allegations and her previous support for the victims.

“Journalists should be asking her pointedly why there was a smear campaign on me and why Kamala was so aggressive and assertive with [then-Supreme Court nominee Brett] Kavanaugh and here she knows there is a credible sexual assault accusation against Senator Biden,” Reade told NewsBusters.

Reade told Megyn Kelly in a May interview that she remembers being pushed up against a wall by Biden and that he proceeded to run his hands up her clothes and assaulted her. She also claims he asked if she wanted to go somewhere else and that he wanted to go further.

“I don’t care if oligarches or celebrities are supporting him. What is more important to me is sexual assault survivors are allowed to come forward and have their stories told. By coming out, I lost a lot. But I don’t regret it,” she said.

Reade asked if Harris will “ignore it out of a will for power” or “will she hold Biden accountable? Will she be silent?”

“To approach sexual violence as a partisan issue is not only dismissive to the survivors and dangerous to the victims. It is the reason why survivors are afraid to come forward,” Reade said. “The Democratic Party has become an enabler to sexual predators.”

White House Confirms It Is Looking Into Shutting Down Oil Pipeline Amid Fuel Crisis

Gas Pipeline

The Biden administration confirmed that it is considering shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan despite the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

“Revoking the permits for the [Line 5] pipeline that delivers oil from western Canada across Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan and into Ontario, would please environmentalists who have urged the White House to block fossil fuel infrastructure, but it would aggravate a rift with Canada and could exacerbate a spike in energy prices that Republicans are already using as a political weapon,” Politico Pro reported. “Killing a pipeline while U.S. gasoline prices are the highest in years could be political poison for Biden, who has seen his approval rating crash in recent months.”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about the report during Monday’s press briefing, asking, “why is the administration now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan?”

“So, Peter, that is inaccurate,” Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed. “That is not right. So, any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate. … So, again, I would — it is inaccurate what you just stated, but —”

“What’s inaccurate?” Doocy asked.

“The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I didn’t say ‘wanting.’  I said, is it being studied right now?  Is the administration studying the impact of shutting down the Line 5?”

“Yeah. Yes, we are. We are,” Jean-Pierre admitted.

 

The news comes as gas prices have reached their highest since 2014, when Biden was vice president, and are currently about 50% higher than they were when Biden entered office.
