    Defense lawyers in California are reviewing criminal cases in which Tara Reade, the former Senate aide who has accused Joseph R. Biden Jr. of sexual assault, served as an expert witness on domestic violence, concerned that she misrepresented her educational credentials in court.

    Then known as Alexandra McCabe, Ms. Reade testified as a government witness in Monterey County courts for nearly a decade, describing herself as an expert in the dynamics of domestic violence who had counseled hundreds of victims.

    But lawyers who had faced off against her in court began raising questions about the legitimacy of her testimony, and the verdicts that followed, after news reports this week that Antioch University had disputed her claim of receiving a bachelor’s degree from its Seattle campus.


    I'll very patiently await the realization by those "on the right" that this scandal is one heck of a stinker.

    I'm perfectly OK waiting for the facts to emerge, and say what they say.

    Appreciate your measured response on this. A lot of people "on the left" went psycho over her claims and will have to answer for it :|.

    In related news she was just dropped by one of her lawyers (the non-Russian propagandist) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/21/u...edentials.html


    The lawyer for Tara Reade, the former Senate aide who has accused Joseph R. Biden Jr. of sexual assault, said Friday that he was no longer representing her, just two weeks after taking her on as a client.

    The lawyer, Douglas H. Wigdor, has been a leading plaintiff’s attorney of the #MeToo era. His firm is best known for bringing discrimination cases against Fox News — and its former star host Bill O’Reilly — and Harvey Weinstein, and his presence at Ms. Reade’s side gave her claims added legal heft.

    This case it probably too hot for any high-powered legal firm to take it on. Weinstein was a sacrificial lamb (probably with Democrats' sights on Trump). In this case, the whole Democratic party is at stake -- so few legal firms want to go against this pressure.

    There are plenty of high powered Republican lawyers. The idea that no one is willing to take this case and torpedo Biden's candidacy is sheer lunacy. And the lawyer who is dropping her previously agreed to represent her!

    Seems like she's becoming toxic now her history of fraud and con-artistry is coming out.

    I think by the time the election rolls around most people will have forgotten who she is as the issue fades away due to her claims no longer being considered likely.

    Indeed. That is why the media focused on Biden early on. This gives the media a chance to accuse the accuser and then bury the topic.

    There are literally murderers in prison right now who will get a new trial because of her flawed expert testimony. There are real people who were injured who will have to testify at a new trial because of her flawed expert testimony. None of that is the MSM's doing or then "accusing the accuser."

    Sheesh
