The NY Times published 2 letters they received in response to their Editorial Board piece titled “Investigate Tara Reade’s Allegations.”
One letter was by Martin Tolchin, a co-founder of “Politico” and “The Hill” as well as a former member of The Times’ Washington bureau.
In his letter Tolchin has some eye opening statements including “I don’t want justice, whatever that may be.”
Below is the full letter:
I totally disagree with this editorial. I don’t want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden. Would he make a great president? Unlikely. Would he make a good president? Good enough. Would he make a better president than the present occupant? Absolutely. I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance.
Suppose an investigation reveals damaging information concerning his relationship with Tara Reade or something else, and Mr. Biden loses the nomination to Senator Bernie Sanders or someone else with a minimal chance of defeating Mr. Trump. Should we really risk the possibility?
The writer is a former member of The Times’s Washington bureau and a founder of Politico.
