Stacy Abrams Defends Biden Against Tara Reade “I think that he is telling the truth and that this did not happen”

Appearing on CNN with Don Lemon, Stacy Abrams defended 2020 candidate Joe Biden amid a sexual assault allegation by Tara Reade.

Don Lemon pointed out  Abrams tweeted this in September of 2018.

After the courageous and compelling testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford yesterday, it is shameful that Kavanaugh’s nomination is being rushed forward.

I believe women, and I believe survivors of violence always deserve to be supported and to have their voices heard.

A Supreme Court hearing is a job interview for one of the most critical roles in our democracy; if there is even a hint of impropriety—let alone the credible allegations bravely brought forward by Dr. Ford—we should pause and thoroughly investigate them, rather than rush forward.

Stacy Abrams:

I believe that women deserve to be heard and I believe that they need to be listened to, but I also believe that those allegations have to be investigated by credible sources.

The New York Times did a deep investigation, and they found that the accusation was not credible. I believe Joe Biden.

I believe that he is a person who has demonstrated that his love of family, his love of our community has been made perfectly clear through his work as a congressional leader and as an American leader.

I know Joe Biden, and I think that he is telling the truth and that this did not happen.
