Graham Defends Biden Against Sexual Assualt Allegation, but Calls on Him to Release Senate Personnel Papers

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is coming to Joe Biden’s defense as the former vice president is facing a sexual assault allegation by a former Senate staffer.

During a Fox News “Hannity” interview late Friday, Graham said, “The Joe Biden I know, I’ve never seen anything [or] believed that he would do anything like this until you convince me otherwise.”

Graham also called on Biden to release his Senate personnel records.

On Friday, Biden called on the secretary of the Senate to see if there is any record of such a complaint. The personnel files are kept in the National Archives. He also even wrote a letter requesting the release of any documents.

Tara Reade, who was a staffer while Biden was a senator, is accusing Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993, and in March she came out publicly with her alleged story.

There has been comparison and questioning in reports on whether this a double-standard between the allegation against Biden and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s case.

Graham said during the Fox News interview, “Is there a double standard? Of course.”

“Do most Republicans understand what happened to Brett Kavanaugh was not about trying to right a wrong against Dr. Ford [but] was about trying to keep a seat open so they could fill it when they could beat Trump? I mean, they [Democrats] were dumb enough to say that,” he added.

Though Biden’s campaign had denied Reade’s allegation, early Friday, Biden himself addressed the allegation in which he denied it, as IJR reported.

“They aren’t true. This never happened,” Biden said in a statement.

  1. So where are these Me Too activists that are screaming for Creepy Joe’s head on a platter. Guess that’s only for cases of Republican nominees and candidates. Democrats are given a free ride even if the case is more plausible than the Kavanaugh case. At least this accuser can remember dates and times and where it happened and who actually was there.

  2. I’m disgusted that something like sexual harrassment or assaults could be on sealed personnel files for a member of Congress.

    I am relieved to see Biden is trying to get any such records released.

  3. WHO were the Democrats Sen Graham repeatedly refuses to name that claimed they wanted to keep the seat open “until they could beat Trump”? Are these unnamed Democrats sitting U.S. Senators, Democrat cable hosts, or some Democrat off the street? I have heard this claim on conservative outlets and social media, but NO ONE identifies WHO these Dems are. We deserve to know.

    1. That’s what you take away from this story? Guess you shouldn’t listen to “conservative outlets”. I must have missed that. Could you name them since you are all about full disclosure?

  4. Guess Graham hadn’t heard the latest complaint against Predator Joe. Now, a girl who was 14 at the time of the incident has been found to relate how a child predator named Biden complemented her on her breasts. She told friends (named) and her sister (named). Wonder how the predator will squirm out of that “never, never happened” incident. What a first class CREEP the Jackass Party has in its’ stable as a POTUS candidate (until the DNC dumps him).

    1. James, as Kaleigh McEnany pointed out yesterday and I have pointed out to you on numerous occasion sexual assault and harassment allegations against a presidential candidate WERE on the ballot in 2016 and the electoral college results tells us sexual assault & harassment allegation against the CANDIDATE are NOT disqualifying.
      WHAT is disqualifying is sexual harassment/assault allegations against the SPOUSE of the candidate. Elections have consequences and that was a clear consequence of electing a candidate with 16 sexual assault allegations–including Trump raping a 13 yr old girl in Jeffrey Epstein’s apartment in 1994. “Creepy” was also on the ballot after the Access Hollywood and Howard Stern interviews by Trump became public BEFORE the election. SO apparently, “first class CREEP” is also not disqualifying. If Joe Biden gets sued for fraud and has a long rap sheet of corrupt business practices and 5 bankruptcies, THOSE are also NOT disqualifying as a result of the 2016 election. If you are looking for the DNC or Dems to “dump” him, WHY would they? Certainly you are NOT suggesting one standard for R’s and a different one for D’s?

      1. Oh lord not more of the same. President Trump was NOT sitting in the people’s White House or in the Senate when he had his dalliances. He was a PRIVATE citizen. Not a fan of the behavior but he did not ask my permission nor yours. And obviously like all Democrats you mention constantly “5 bankruptcies “. They were Chapter 11. That is reorganizational which means, for the intentional under educated, that employees were paid as were suppliers. You just love the Epstein story but the truth is that it wasn’t Trump but Clinton “Trump was sued by an anonymous woman who claimed he raped her at an Epstein party when she was 13 years old. However, several journalists who dug into this allegation back then came away voicing caution or downright skepticism, and the accuser withdrew her lawsuit shortly before the election.
        Stop spewing lies. It is unbecoming.

        1. Cherl, Cherl, Cherl, you cannot win an argument with the likes of communist party faithful like syphilis. She lies and lies and lies as do all that belong to that party like michael (with a capital B), confuction and baal paul just to name a few. Everything she has stated has been disproved but that will not stop their narrative because, like the black people, they want us to fill our minds with those lies and brain wash us as they have most (not all) black people. They use people to accomplish their goals NOT because they care.

      2. Syphilis – you are disqualified for being a lying parrot!!!! Stop squawking.
