MSNBC host is risking cancelation after publically stating that Tara Reade’s accusations against Biden are gaining credibility.
According to The Daily Wire:
The mainstream media can no longer ignore Tara Reade’s claim that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 now that evidence has come forward lending some credibility to her claims. On Wednesday night, Chris Hayes of MSNBC admitted that even though people like himself might wish to dismiss such an accusation, he cannot ignore its underlying credibility.
In March, Tara Reade claimed that then-Senator Joe Biden sexually assaulted her while she served as an aide in his Senate offices during the Clinton administration. She has since detailed her account in multiple interviews and filed a criminal complaint against the former vice president with the Washington, D.C., police department. A former neighbor of Reade and Reade’s brother have both publicly stated that Reade told them of the assault in the 1990s. Recently surfaced evidence also suggests that Reade’s mother called into CNN’s Larry King in the 1990s to complain about a prominent senator with whom her daughter had “problems.”
Later in the segment, Hayes added that the evidence that has arisen in recent days has created a clear situation that warrants media attention.
“A piece of evidence that has risen in how I evaluate these stories is a somewhat contemporaneous disclosure to a trusted person who then tells a reporter about it,” said Hayes. “That is what has happened here. And to me, that has been, in terms of what the evidentiary record is, has raised it a bit in terms of my own view of this.”
Despite the allegations, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided to not believe all women and endorse Biden for president.
