Tara Reade, a woman who has accused President Joe Biden of committing one of the worst violations possible against her, took to Twitter this week to caution her followers that if something terrible happens to her, she is “not suicidal.”
Reade first made her allegations against Biden during the 2020 presidential election, with The Daily Wire reporting that according to her account, in 1993 then-Senator Biden confronted her at an empty Senate building hallway and used his fingers to penetrate her. The story was then reportedly brushed aside by the mainstream media for weeks until The New York Times published a piece that thoroughly scrutinized Reade’s accusations.
Bias by the media outlet is not very hard to observe when one considers that article is titled, “Examining Tara Reade’s Sexual Assault Allegation Against Joe Biden,” while a much more recent writeup on former President Trump is more pointedly named, “In Searing Detail, Trump’s Accuser Tells Her Story.”
“I want to make something clear. If something happens to me, all roads lead to Joe Biden,” Reade posted Sunday on Twitter. “Joe Biden and DNC political machine threats, bullying, and intimidation over the last three years will not work. I am not suicidal. I should not be under investigation nor am I a foreign agent. I am a private citizen.”
“I was a former staffer of Joe Biden’s that has chosen to step forward to tell the truth,” added Reed. “The tactics using intimidation and bullying to silence me and suppress me using DOJ and FBI and social media will not work. Leave me alone.”
“I will testify under oath in Congress if asked to do so and tell what happened and what I know,” she said. “The Biden corruption must end. Period Thank you @RepMTG and @mattgaetz for inviting me to testify and caring about the truth!”

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson covered Reade’s accusations, which he reported were “credible” in a long-form sitdown interview he invited her to on “Tucker Carlson Today.”
“It happened all at once … his hands were on me and underneath my clothes,” Reade reportedly has said of the alleged attack. “Yeah, and he went down my skirt but then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me. He said several things. I can’t remember everything he said.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) addressed the situation behind Reade’s allegations when he appeared Monday on Newsmax’s “The Right Squad,” exclusively telling the network that both he and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) are submitting a demand for the employment records of Tara Reade to the Secretary of the Senate because they believe it “will further corroborate the claims she has made.”

“I’m on this sub-committee that’s supposed to look at the weaponization of our government,” Gaetz added, “and nothing is a sicker weaponization than what her allegations set forth.”
