Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., ripped into Kamala Harris and others for their clear and quite scandalous double standard when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh and Joe Biden.
“These Democratic senators believed Christine Blasey Ford’s claim against Justice Kavanaugh, yet there’s more evidence to support Tara Reade’s claim of sexual assault against Joe Biden,” Cotton wrote Sunday.
“How could they possibly agree to be VP under those circumstances?” he correctly asked. Look, Biden has many skeletons and only a few have crawled out of his closet – expect many more to come.
From Fox News:
The women who have been speculated about as potential vice presidential picks for Biden have remained largely silent on the accusations of sexual assault against him, and when they have addressed the claims they have chosen their words carefully.
“[I]n this case — and your listeners should look at the story — there was a thorough review by The New York Times. And I think that’s very important to have, especially involving public figures,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said of the allegation in an NPR interview.
“But I think when I look at — when I see Vice President Biden, someone I worked with, I see him on — a leader on domestic abuse — led the bill before people were even willing to talk about those horrific crimes and has really been a champion of abuses of power against women and has used his voice on the domestic abuse front in such a big way”
Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on her endorsement of Biden, noted that the “allegations are being aired publicly” while saying that she wanted to avoid commenting further until she had read more into the story.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms told NPR in an interview that the allegation against Biden “does not” affect her view of Biden’s candidacy, calling him “a man of the highest integrity.”
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told the San Francisco Chronicle that Biden’s accuser “has a right to tell her story” and that she doesn’t know Biden to be the kind of person to commit sexual assault.
Fox News has reached out to Baldwin, Klobuchar, Lance Bottoms, Harris and 12 other potential running mates for Biden multiple times for comment on the allegation, including following a further development Friday night that bolstered the story of Biden’s accuser. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s office was the only one to respond.
