The Tara Reade Train Wreck Continues. Biden is Not Out of the Woods Yet

Tara Reade is a liar. This is not the first or the second time I’ve written about this. I hope it is the last. Frankly, I’m getting tired of it. And notice: I’m no longer qualifying this as an opinion. The facts bear out the claim. She is a bald-faced, unrepentant serial liar. What are some of the new developments? Well, she’s been revealed to have lied about her college degrees. She lied about being an “expert” who could testify in domestic violence cases — which she did. Now those cases are being considered for reopening, and convicted domestic abusers may be freed because of Reade’s lies under oath. And, her high-profile lawyer dropped her as a client. Her credibility is shot. No one with any discernment believes that Biden actually molested her, unless their hatred of Biden and/or love of Trump drives them to advocate for her credibility because they still hope she can split enough votes away from Biden to cost him the presidency. That applies to both devoted MAGAts and devoted Bernie Busters. Let’s look at where Reade stands now — in the ashes of her future, the unmasked lies and deceptions of her past, and the entire destruction of her credibility as a truthful witness to, well, anything. Cease and Desist? Back in the halcyon days of — five days ago!?! — Reade’s attorney, veteran sexual harassment defense lawyer and Trump donor Douglas Wigdor, sent a cease-and-desist order to Lynn Hummer, one of Reade’s most persuasive critics. Hummer, who calls Reade “manipulative” and a “liar” after having Reade allegedly milk thousands of dollars out of Hummer’s non-profit horse rescue organization, received the letter on May 17. The letter advised her to stop giving “false” information “to the media and online” about Reade. How did Wigdor know Hummer was giving false information to the media? His client, Reade, said so. Wigdor wrote: These harassing, intimidating and false statements are unlawful and are clearly intended to tarnish and impugn Ms. Reade’s character and reputation. … Let this letter serve as a final demand for you to cease and desist from engaging in this or similar conduct immediately. Almost a month before, Reade posted this on Twitter: You will stop Lynn Hummer. You have been reported for animal neglect to Santa Cruz county. Stop soliciting funds using my sexual assault story as leverage. A lawyer will be in contact with you for defaming me. You may not continue to spread false information regarding my life. — taratweets ( Alexandra Tara Reade) (@ReadeAlexandra) April 20, 2020 After Wigdor sent his letter, Hummer’s own lawyer, Pat Harris, said: I find it very ironic that her attorney is trying to bully witnesses when he is claiming that is what’s happening to her in the Joe Biden case. … The last thing in the world that Tara Reade wants to do is meet Lynn Hummer in the courtroom. Hummer has receipts. Reade does not. Harris told Politico: “We’ll be more than happy to provide actual physical evidence that backs up Ms. Hummer’s story. All Reade has is a lawyer trying to bully my client.” Released from Biden’s Staff Due to Health Issues? This is almost certainly a lie. In my previous articles, we’ve seen that Reade almost certainly was asked to resign, if not outright fired, due […]
