Anti-Kavanaugh Crusader Kirsten Gillibrand Dismisses Allegations Against Joe Biden

Anti-Kavanaugh Crusader Kirsten Gillibrand Dismisses Allegations Against Joe Biden

“Vice President Biden has vehemently denied these allegations, and I support Vice President Biden.”

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was a leading voice among Democrats during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. The failed presidential candidate even insisted on an FBI investigation of the eventual Supreme Court Justice.

Like many of her Democrat colleagues, Gillibrand insisted that all women must be believed.

In the case of the allegations against Joe Biden, Gillibrand is satisfied that they are false.

Jonathan Easley reports at The Hill:

Gillibrand addresses Reade allegations: ‘I stand by Vice President Biden’

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday defended former Vice President Joe Biden after a reporter asked if she believed allegations from Tara Reade, a former aide who says the then-senator sexually assaulted her in a secluded part of Capitol Hill in 1993.

Gillibrand, who ran for president last year, said she stood by the presumptive Democratic nominee and supported him, noting he had denied the allegations.

“So when we say believe women, it’s for this explicit intention of making sure there’s space for all women to come forward to speak their truth, to be heard,” Gillibrand said during a conference call with reporters about the Postal Service.

“And in this allegation, that is what Tara Reade has done. She has come forward, she has spoken, and they have done an investigation in several outlets. Those investigations, Vice President Biden has called for himself. Vice President Biden has vehemently denied these allegations, and I support Vice President Biden.”

What an astonishing change of attitude.

Zachary Evans of National Review provides this reminder:

Sen. Gillibrand, Who Suggested FBI Probe of Kavanaugh, Says She ‘Stands By’ Biden Following Sexual Assault Allegations

Gillibrand in 2018 was one of the most vocal defenders of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The New York senator argued that Ford should not be compelled to testify at the hearings without the benefit of witnesses and an investigation.

“Without the benefit of an FBI investigation … and without the benefit of corroborating witnesses being able to testify, it’s a sham [confirmation] hearing,” Gillibrand said at the time.

Here’s another reminder:

Here’s Gillibrand giving an impassioned speech on the Senate floor in defense of Ford, during the Kavanaugh hearings:

It’s almost like it was all just about politics and power.

Democrats can’t have it both ways.

They set these rules. They can live by them.

    If she did not have double standards, she would have no standards at all.

      Dedicated to the ny idiots who voted for this willowy reed who bends with wind in her quest for power.

      “On her way to work one morning, down the path along the lake, a tender hearted woman saw a poor, half frozen snake. His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew. ‘Poor thing,’ she cried, ‘I’ll take you in, and I’ll take care of you.’
      “Take me in oh, tender woman. Take me in, for heaven’s sake. Take me in, oh, tender woman, sighed the vicious snake.

      “She wrapped him up all cozy in a comforter of silk, and laid him by her fire side with some honey and some milk.

      “She hurried home from work that night and as soon as she arrived, she found that pretty snake she’d taken in had been revived.
      “Take me in, oh, tender woman. Take me in for heaven’s sake. Take me in oh, tender woman, sighed that vicious snake.
      “She clutched him to her bosom, ‘you’re so beautiful’, she cried.

      “‘But if I hadn’t brought you in by now, oh, heavens, you would have died.’

      “She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed him and held him tight. But instead of saying thank you, that snake gave her a vicious bite!

      “Take me in oh, tender woman, take me in for heaven’s sake. Take me in, oh, tender woman, sighed the vicious snake.

      “‘I have saved you,’ cried the woman. ‘And you’ve bitten me, heaven’s why? You know your bite is poisonous, and now I’m going to die.’

      “‘Oh, shut up, silly woman,’ said the reptile with a grin. ‘You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in.'”

    Krystal is a Sanders Socialist and Saager really doesn’t seem like very much of a conservative. Considering the production values, they don’t seem to draw much of an audience.

It’s like they don’t care about hypocrisy because the media will cover for them. I wonder why they are so confident???

I guess inheriting a sex cult means you get to pick and choose your FAUX OUTRAGE on this issue.

Just call her Hillarycito.

Kirsten wouldn’t lift a stinky finger to hurt good old Joe.

LukeHandCool | April 29, 2020 at 5:36 pm

Kirsten,

You’re a lying, two-faced, dog-faced hypocrite soldier.

Level of Surprise: Zero

This story just in from New York: “Dog bites man”

Zzzzzzzzzzzz

She said that Gropey Joe denied the allegations and she believes him? Really? When exactly has he denied anything? His campaign has denied them, yes. I don’t remember him being asked by the press the question or him offering anything voluntarily outside of his handlers.

The discrepancy here really bugs me.

I don’t either disbelieve or believe Tara Reade. But at least her accusation reaches the status of “she-said-he-said” — we have every reason to believe that they were alone together; who do you believe about what happened when they were? Furthermore, what she claimed had a time and place attached, posing the risk that if she were making it *all* up someone would come forward to claim to have been there then, or with one of them at that time. And there’s evidence she’s been claiming this all along, and certainly her on-the-record story has been consistent. Clearly something happened to her at that time, though “something happened” might be that her job performance was poor and she made up a story for why she was demoted to get sympathy from her friends.

Ms. Ford has none of this. Their social circle overlapped, but no one apart from her has claimed they even met. There was no consistent time or place attached. Her public story kept changing (number of people present, approximate location of incident, year in question, etc.) The accusation first surfaced less than ten years ago, when Kavanaugh was bruited about as shortlisted for a *different* Supreme Court opening. Nothing major seemed to have happened in her life in the summer of 1982, which is the year she finally settled on; given a sudden decline in her grades something probably happened in the mid-1980s, which was her original accusation-approximate-year — but by that time their social circles no longer overlapped.

Ms. Ford may be telling the truth, but there’s simply no supporting evidence (other than raw prejudice against Kavanaugh’s demographic, which seems sufficient in many minds) and there’s quite a bit of weak CONTRADICTORY evidence.

There’s really no supporting evidence for Ms. Reade, only evidence that if she lied she’s done so consistently, but at least there’s no CONTRADICTORY evidence.

She’s Pro-Choice, selective, opportunistic, politically congruent (“=”). So, technically, as a matter of principle, she cannot be a hypocrite, let alone a bigot (i.e. sanctimonious hypocrite).

    To be a hypocrite, you have to have principles to betray, and Gillibrand has none. To know how she feels about any given issue, you have only to ask Chuckie, the man with his hand up her backside (and not in a good, Funny Uncle Joe way). Her “sincere support for the NRA” mysteriously vanished when Chuckie informed her that kind of stuff might be OK in the House but didn’t fly in his Senate. Gillibrand is an NPC, not a boss.

Just when has Biden himself “vehemently denied” this?

So far, all we have is the media and other democrats parroting the talking points put out by his campaign

Guess who wants the VP nod?

OH Deplorable | April 29, 2020 at 9:32 pm

Of course she dismisses that idea, just like the previous post implied. That and she Can’t
Understand
Normal
Thinking.

We in NY are so fortunate having not one, nut two really wonderful Senators. It’s almost difficult to pick which one is more sleazy and corrupt.

What the heck is wrong with NY voters? Or rather NYC voters, who really are the only ones who seem to count in getting these leftists into power?

    Milhouse in reply to oldgoat36. | April 30, 2020 at 12:16 am

    It was upstate voters who first pushed her into prominence, and set her up for a senate run. Well, if Albany counts as upstate, rather than as an enclave of the City.

She’s alexandra cortez, without the brains.

“Vice President Biden has vehemently denied these allegations, and I support Vice President Biden.”

And that’s fair enough, as long as she’s fine with us saying the same about Kavanaugh. But she isn’t.

Loathsome human being.

Hillary’s favorite bimbo speaks as she is told to speak.
