Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who defended Christine Blasey Ford, calls Tara Reade’s accusation against Joe Biden ‘ridiculous’

Mary Margaret Olohan on May 7, 2020

Rep. Dianne Feinstein on Thursday called Tara Reade’s sexual allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden “ridiculous” and said she does not believe her.

The California Democrat discussed Reade’s allegations before reporters, and said Reade’s are “totally different” from the sexual assault allegations Christine Blasey Ford made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Feinstein said that “Kavanaugh was under the harshest inspection that we give people over a substantial period of time.”

Reade has has said that Biden kissed her, touched her, and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent when she worked for him as a Senate staffer in 1993. Biden and has campaign have denied the allegations.

Feinstein questioned why Reade waited so long to bring forward her allegations.

“And I don’t know this person at all who has made the allegations. She came out of nowhere. Where has she been all these years? He was Vice President,” Feinstein said. To “attack him in this way to me is absolutely ridiculous.”

“No, I do not,” she said when asked if she believes Reade, according to the Hill.

The Hill also reported that Feinstein said she has “a great respect for his integrity, for his fidelity to his family his friends.”

“And so these accusations are very disturbing because they do have an impact on an individual, and every indication I would have is that they would be false until I was shown otherwise,” she added.

Feinstein joins other Democrats who staunchly defended Ford in her allegations against Kavanaugh, but now say they do not believe Reade.

The senator said in a September 2018 tweet that she found “every single piece of information from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford eminently credible, sincere and believable.”

During every step of this process, I’ve found every single piece of information from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford eminently credible, sincere and believable. She knew this would have a huge effect on her life and she was incredibly brave to come forward.

— Senator Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) September 18, 2018

“Confirming Brett Kavanaugh in the face of credible allegations of sexual assault that were not thoroughly investigated, and his belligerent, partisan performance in last Thursday’s hearing undermines the legitimacy of the Supreme Court,” Feinstein tweeted in September 2018.

In another September 2018 tweet, Feinstein called for a delay of the hearings concerning Ford’s allegations.

“We should honor Dr. Blasey Ford’s wishes and delay this hearing,” Feinstein tweeted. “A proper investigation must be completed, witnesses interviewed, evidence reviewed and all sides spoken to. Only then should the chairman set a hearing date.”

“The decision to come forward or not come forward has always been Christine Blasey Ford’s, and that includes her participation in a hearing,” she added.

    Diane u and the rest of the democratic women she be ashamed . You all just got Trump Re elected . Wait till the next Biden woman comes out. He was a wise guy

    Typical leftist hypocrisy. And they wonder why they are hated.

  3. doug priore May 8, 2020

    Feinstein is completely disingenuous…and that figures.

  4. Anonymous May 8, 2020

    Weinstein is a pathetic excuse for a human. She would even make a bad diarrhea explosion. The same thing applies to Pelosi. They both give diarrhea a real good thing.

  5. Jojodmonkey May 8, 2020

    This OLD communist harlet deserves to spend the rest of her life in prison and to have every penny of wealth Confiscated her and her criminal husband posses including campaign funds and turn it all over to social security!

  6. Bruno May 8, 2020

    Again reconfirming Feinstein is a POS. Sen Grassley was going to investigate here over her handling of Cavanaugh’s accusers. He did not which makes Grassley a POS too.

  7. SGT Preston May 8, 2020

    I find Diane Feinstein to be ridiculous and tremendously biased toward Biden. Amazing that she could be so supportive of Ford, even though Ford had no independent witnesses, no supporting evidence, while Creepy, Sleepy Uncle Joe’s accuser has abundant witnesses. Don’t have to guess what political party she is part of–the democrap party

  8. Richard May 8, 2020

    Feinstein put Ford up to the allegations against Justice Kavanugh. This is different because she didn’t use Reade against Biden. These democrats are corrupt to the core and just watch Comey and the other come down and watch the democrats cry wolf when they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Now to start the prosecutions of Comey and the others. Do not forget Obama. The Latin American countries do not hesitate to send the corrupt president to prison in their countries. Is this the third world country that will not.

  9. SGT Preston May 8, 2020

    AMEN, Jojodmonkey.

  10. Charles Montalbano May 8, 2020

    A vote for one democrat is a vote for all democrats. They march in lockstep and must be defeated if we are to the Country that was founded.

    The left is so comfortable with their discriminatory bias of anyone who does not fully agree with their positions it is frightening. Frankly Senator Feinstein is so out of touch she and the whole California Democratic contingent is laughable.

  12. Scott Clark May 8, 2020

  13. Gay Phillips May 8, 2020

    Touchy feels Joe is a far more likely candidate to have molested a woman than Kavanaugh who had a stellar reputation before the Democrats invented a potential rape of a woman who did not know when it happened, where it happened or who was at the party where it happened. The most wicked farce ever.

  14. PAB May 8, 2020

    Only difference is He is a DEMON”RAT” and Kavanaugh is Republican.

  15. Laura Wagner May 8, 2020

    This is typical demokraut behavior, to ignore evidence and go with “Feelings” instead. Also to distort what really happened in favor of wishful thinking. I would have to say that it is also another example of a California demokraut that needs to be voted out of office. Such a hypocrite!

  17. America First May 8, 2020

    How do you spell HYPOCRITE? d-e-m-o-c-R-A-T. According to their anti-America party rules, any accusation without any corroborating evidence what-so-ever, against a Republican is automatically true, but any accusation with plenty of supporting and corroborating evidence against a democRAT is automatically false. joe biden’s mantra is: Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes? Remember in November’s election, a vote for a democRAT is a vote against America.

  18. Stan g May 8, 2020

    There is no point defending a woman (or man) who can’t help the Dems. Using Chuck Schumer’s old and tired line “if the Dems did not hav a double standard, they would have no standards at all”

  19. M141934a May 8, 2020

    I actually thought this old hag was smart enough to keep her mouth shut. She should have been tried and convicted for lying to Congress. Old hag should spend the remainder of her miserable life in jail.

  20. snooky6677 May 8, 2020

    Dianne Feinstein I wonder how you sleep at night with all the bad things that you have done throughout your life all I can say is may God have mercy on your soul because you are going to burn. And she say that you don’t believe Tara Reid why because Joe Biden is a Democrat and you cronies have to stick together well I hope she gets everything that she’s asking that Joe Biden is prosecuted bisexual misconduct and harassment and I know he is never ever going to be president you Democrats are such fools and a joke.

  21. JC May 8, 2020

    Diane Feinstein is an ass for saying this. She is the instigator of the Blasey-Ford incident that was all manufactured to try and prevent Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court justice. One of the biggest lies foisted on America and she has the nerve to say this about a woman with so many people vouching for her story. This is a senator who has led the committee responsible for intelligence and also judiciary and was found to have had a Chinese spy on her staff for 20 years. Democrats continue to prove over and over that they cannot keep secrets, tell the truth, or be trusted with anything important. This old buzzard has to go!

  22. RM May 8, 2020

    I would care less if I read in the paper that Dianne Feinstein CAUGHT the coronavirus with a terminal result. Same for her minions Nancy Pelosi, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Pressley, Adam Schiff, and a few more in Congress….

  23. Milford Palmer May 8, 2020

    Senator Feinstein, You flip flop on everything. When Kavanaugh was accused you wanted hang him. But Ford had nobody to confirm it. But Reade has several people to confirm her allegations. Yet you still back Biden. Now I can understand why the Democrats have lost votes . And now you will be going down. I can not vote for a democrat now.

  24. RM May 8, 2020

    Let’s go a step further….censoring or approval on any post on media should be treated criminally as ELECTION TAMPERING…it would be nice to see Zuckerburg and other media executives in JAIL wearing orange, and being told by their jailers what to do…

  25. Steven Winner May 8, 2020

    Diane Feinstein is a typical lying, cheating Democrat who does not give a hoot about the average American Citizens. She is a disgrace to the Jewish religion. She needs to be voted out of office like every Democrat in the entire U.S.A..

  26. Gerald Cline May 8, 2020

    Feinstein is a hypocrite…ya-think…?!?!?

  28. Melvin Walter May 8, 2020

    It seems to me that when the allegations are at their door, it’s considered hear say and not true,to them people are just sheep and they think they’re the wolf’s with no honor or integrity

  29. cathey May 8, 2020

    Feinstein to you Democrats, you believe only the Democrats over the truth anytime, you naturally lie when the truth sounds better

  30. jjofaz May 8, 2020

    Just how can these dems deal with their conscience? They must be numb to their lies. Ms Reade’s allegations are totally different because she has people backing her up. Not only people backing her up but documents in forms of divorce proceedings published with the actual year. Diane you pulled the Blasey Ford lies out of your a$$ to stop a person from becoming a conservative judge on the Supreme Court. I have never heard so much BS coming from that side of the aisle before in my life. Do you have to wear boots work? The entire Congress is going to be swarming with flies of lies with your spewing of sh*t. Between, Nazi, Sch*t, Nagler, and yourself, there isn’t an ounce of honesty in the house.

  31. Jim May 8, 2020

    Wow! First off, where are all our conservative Senators and congress peeps? Out for lunch it appears! Secondly I hear Fienstein stating “why did she wait so long”? If memory is correct, how long did it take Ford yo come forward? Total BS my friends. If uou can’t see thru the smoke. Maybe you deserve it!

  32. Don Myler May 8, 2020

    Feinstein is a typical democratic/socialist b***ch. Zero credibility. Chinese spies working on her staff. Making millions through dealing with China. Apparently we have no recourse. These criminals are above the law. Never see them prosecuted no matter what the transgressions. The worst consequence they ever suffer is resignation, if they choose too. No deterrent of bad behavior breeds more of the same. Brain dead constituents. Pathetic.

    If anyone is a hypocrite here it’s Feinstein she is a ball faced liar and needs to go along with the other lying Demo-Rats

  37. William G Wilson May 8, 2020

    These comments along with the others prove the total hypocrisy of the Democratic Party. They insist on believing every women as long as it furthers their political agenda. However if your claims don’t fit the scenario you a fact and lying to gain fame.

  38. Pat May 8, 2020

    Diane Feinstein is a hypocritical liar. Ford had a million excuses not to testify and when she did she remembered nothing. Feinstein set this up to stop Kavanaugh but got her nowhere. Resign you stinking liar like the rest of your lying team. Shameful people. Tara Reade should be believed too

  39. MARC CAMP May 8, 2020

    Feinstein and her comrads are using Satan’s playbook.. once a sewer rat, always a sewer rat!

  40. NIcholas Elder May 8, 2020

    I was a Democrat for the better part of my life. The Clintons and all their lies and corruption pushed me to the Republican Party. When I read B S like this, it reinforces my decision to part ways with the hypocritical Democratic Party.?Feinstein and Pelosi are 2 of the most dangerous people in America.

  41. Bob May 8, 2020

    Of course they’re different. There’s more collaborating witnesses for Taras accusations.

  42. Lynda Presco May 8, 2020

    I can’t believe that Sen. Dianne Feinstein can say such a thing re a woman who claims she was assaulted by Joe Biden. If my memory serves me right Ms. Blasey-Ford didn’t come forward since her college yrs & there were no collaborating witnesses, not to mention no credible evidence & Sen. Feinstein believes her. Now Ms.Reade came forward in less number of yrs, has collaborating witnesses that she told about the incident at the time & reported it to people within her dept..and Feistein doesnt believe her! Humm the difference is Justice Kavenough was a conservative; so guilty until proven innocent & Joe Biden is a Democrat; so innocent until proven guilty. Does anyone smell a rat & see the double standard of the Democratic Party? How can they face their constituents?

  43. RM May 8, 2020

    I would care less if I picked up the paper and read that Dianne Feinstein caught the coronavirus with a terminal result. Good riddance.

    DieAnne FineSTAIN, along with others of her perverted persuasion, ADamn Schitt, Jeri GONADler, Schmuck U Shyster, Jamie the Rascal, and many , many, others who crave money and power, are all nasty anti American socialists who wish to destroy the US because they THINK they can get even more power and money through socialism. but it didn’t work out too well for their relatives in the last several centuries in socialist Europe, did it? So why do they arrogantly THINK it will work for them here?

  46. O Olon May 8, 2020

    DF how can you look at your self in the mirror? You are nothing but a huge hypocrite. It’s time that you resign or as it may be get voted out. This may just help you out.

    Feinstein is a career -power grabber. She certainly is no judge of character. Blasey-Ford was a proven liar..

  49. Kim May 8, 2020

    WHAT HYPOCRISY!! Christine Blasey Ford had ZERO evidence, couldn’t even remember where or what exactly the mild incident was – AND IT WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL. Joe BIDEN WAS VICE PRESIDENT, SWAM DAILY IN THE NUDE and his female security threatened to commit suicide if they had to watch him again as he strutted before them; every photo of him REEKS as he grabs and smells and kisses women like a SICK PERVERT. REALLY DIANE? Your dishonesty and hypocrisy should get you FIRED!!

  50. Alexander Bunatin May 9, 2020

    I agree with senator Feinstein – these 2 cases are “totally different”:
    1. Ford
    a. didn’t remember when exactly and where it happened.
    b. She didn’t tell anybody for over 20 years
    c. no one who was present at the event including her best friend , corroborated her allegations
    d. alleged “assault” happened when both were teenagers
    2. Read
    a. states exactly when and where
    b. told her mother, brother and others about event shortly after event
    c. Biden was a senator, not a teenager at the time….
    “Totally different” indeed…

  51. Mary Luy May 9, 2020

    Dianne Feinstein as Pinocchio Schiff have no shame at all. She was the instigator in Kava case. She probably made the deal with Ford to blame Kava. These democrats women have done unspeakable thing all the years in the Congress, and nobody called them out. They think people are dumb enough to not see them for what they are. But now, people are awakening and watching them. It is time to erase all these corrupted mob once and for all.

  52. Jeffrey May 9, 2020

    One more reason for Term Limits!

  53. Chris Horner May 9, 2020

    It pains me to say this – but Dianne is actually right. There is a HUGE difference between Dr. Ford’s accusations and those of Tara Reade – one is actually credible. Dr. Ford couldn’t even remember when or where or with whom she attended the infamous party, yet she was certain who raped her – even though NOBODY came forward to say she had told them about it. Tara Reade WORKED FOR her abuser and is able to cite very specific events leading up to and when the attack took place, and she TOLD PEOPLE ABOUT IT THEN, not 35 years later. One also doesn’t have to look too hard to see proof that Ol’ Gropey has a MAJOR problem with putting his hands where they don’t belong, and that more women are coming forward.

  54. Sheptim May 9, 2020

    You people have said it all. This is just typical of these f**king liberal commies they talk out both sides of their mouth and have no regrets what so ever. After all this is the clown who had a Chinese spy working for her for twenty years and not a thing happened to her . This is why we need term limits.

  55. Ted May 9, 2020

    Is she for real ? Not only did she make a complaint about her incident when it happened, but she also told MANY people that can all these years later corroborate her story. They even have her mother calling Larry King at that time asking questions about how to get justice for these incidents. Add this to the fact that multiple other women have also came forward with similar stories and soo many video clips show him doing inappropriate acts in public to scores of other females of all ages. I think that This senator should remove her head from her behind !

  56. Don May 9, 2020

    How sad there are liars like this making decisions for the citizens of our country. Please vote them out.

    Shame on you mrs Feinstein!you are a hypocrite and a lier! How long did it take ms Ford to blame Mr Kavanaugh? Since high school! And you believed her because The accused was a republican! Shame on you and your whole party for go after an innocent man! Why don’t we have ms Reed hearing? Because Biden can do anything wrong and you would stand up for him ! No democrat should be trusted!
