Lawyer for Tara Reade drops her as a client

Published

on

The lawyer for Tara Reade announced that he will no longer represent her regarding claims that she was sexually assaulted by Joe Biden in 1993.

“Our Firm no longer represents Tara Reade. Our decision, made on May 20, is by no means a reflection on whether then-Senator Biden sexually assaulted Ms. Reade,” Douglas Wigdor wote. “On that point, our view — which is the same view held by the majority of Americans, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll — has not changed.”

“Much of what has been written about Ms. Reade is not probative of whether then-Senator Biden sexually assaulted her, but rather is intended to victim-shame and attack her credibility on unrelated and irrelevant matters,” he added. “We genuinely wish Ms. Reade well and hope that she, as a survivor, is treated fairly. We have and will continue to represent survivors regardless of their alleged predator’s status or politics.”

The announcement came just one day after defense lawyers in California said they were reviewing whether Reade misrepresented her credentials when she testified as a witness in past cases.

"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."

Disgraced Fox News host whines about Twitter fact-checking Trump’s conspiracy theory clips from the network

Published

on

One day after Fox News won a lawsuit by arguing that nobody should believe Tucker Carlson, the disgraced Fox News personality was complaining about getting caught lying about the 2020 election.

Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil found the Fox host is not "stating actual facts" on his show, "Tucker Carlson tonight."

If that was humiliating enough for Carlson, later that same night he was again shamed for lying when Twitter slapped a fact-check on a clip of his show that was tweeted by President Donald Trump.
