Tara Reade

NEW YORK – The lawyer who represented Tara Reade in her sex assault case against Joe Biden has abruptly quit the case as the accuser faces mounting scrutiny.

Numerous reports have surfaced this weekend that Douglas Wigdor, a New York attorney and ardent Donald Trump supporter, released a statement to some media saying, “Our firm no longer represents Tara Reade” and “is by no means a reflection” on the veracity of her claims that Joe Biden assaulted her in a hallway in Congress back in 1993.

Only about two weeks ago, Wigdor posted a bold proclamation on its Facebook page announcing the firm’s representation of Tara Reade:

Wigdor LLP has the privilege of representing former Joe Biden staffer #TaraReade, who publicly accused the former VP of sexually assaulting her in 1993 while she was a staff assistant to the U.S. Senator. Our representation of Tara Reade has nothing to do with politics. We at Wigdor LLP firmly believe that every survivor of sexual assault has the right to competent legal counsel, and we will represent Ms. Reade zealously, just as we would any other victim of sexual violence. Ms. Reade will be heard shortly in an interview conducted by Megyn Kelly and produced by Rich McHugh, and she will describe to the American public what happened to her. Her harrowing account is credible and supported by numerous “outcry” witnesses from decades ago.
It is inevitable that partisan politics will lead people to attack our firm and Mr. Wigdor specifically, particularly given his support of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. However, any objective view of Mr. Wigdor’s career and the history of the Firm (which is comprised of partners, lawyers and staff from all political parties) belie such a false narrative and make clear that our representation is simply a continuation of our objective support of all legitimate victims. We have decided to take this matter on because every survivor has the right to competent counsel, and that is exactly what we will provide. As Mr. Biden himself has acknowledged, “believing women means taking the women’s claims seriously when she steps forward, and then vet[ting] it and look[ing] into it . . . women have a right to be heard.” We will help Ms. Reade be heard.

Evidently, now, Wigdor will not be helping Reade be heard. The law firm makes no mention of dropping Reade on its Facebook page, but continues to display the post about bringing her on as a client.  Wigdor is reportedly a strong supporter and financial contributor to President Donald Trump, who, himself, has numerous claims against him from women for questionable behavior towards them, spent quality time with dead madman Jeffrey Epstein, said he might date his own daughter, and made a famous proclamation that grabbing women by their reproductive organ is a great technique even if they are married.

Biden has denied Reade’s claims and said no one should vote for him if they believe her.

Recent days have brought turbulence to Tara Reade’s life as she got on board the hell-bound #metoo train.  Reports mount daily with questions regarding her claims of having a college degree, her history as a renter, about whether she provided false testimony in cases that could exonerate dangerous criminals, her mental status, questions about her connection to Vladimir Putin, financial hardships and how her story has morphed over time.

    Why can’t people see the truth. Poor woman. Give her money. Let her live that lifestyle she deserves. And Joe. Why even run. Just give it a couple months and poor old Joe will be up to his neck in mud. I’m beginning to think that Trump has thick skin. Haters are fools. Easy to pick out. And gold digging has never been better. Whatever happened to that bimbo and her lawyer that attacked the high office of this land. They were destroyed. Lead by example.

      Yet, it has some proof to it. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford had absolutely nothing but her word, of an event that happened 36 years ago. No collaboration, no witnesses, no reports, yet it was taken as a gospel by the Democrats. This was because it was against a Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a Republican.
      Then, all the Democrats were lining up, saying all women should be believed, all the time, when it comes to sexual assault/abuse. Now that it is a Democrat, with a paper trail, for some sort of proof, she has to be lying. What hypocrites.

    Men desire her. Not enough attention is being paid to her. That needs to change. The spotlight is perfect for her. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to just give her money. She of all people deserves it.

    So Dr. Blasey Ford was given the benefit of doubt with no evidence, no report to authorities and no witness corroboration. This woman has witnesses, filed a report and her own mother even called in live on national television seeking advice decades ago but she is not believable? I’d look real hard at her former lawyer’s finances. I can guarantee he was paid off by some Democrat.

      Wigdor is reportedly a strong supporter and financial supporter of President Donald Trump. Imagine that! Once they figured out that they were being duped, they dropped out. I am sure Donny isn’t happy with them.

    METOO is still a thing so this is all bullsh*t. Tara is a good woman, fine-looking and clearly desireable to any man, he probably couldn’t resist. She is to be beleived jus like any woman should be believed everytime they accuse a man because women never lie or make things up only men do that to get out of what they did.

      Trump banned Epstein from his resort. Bill Clinton flew to Epsteins rape island over a dozen times. Get real you clown. Did Epstein have a painting of Trump in a dress and high heels in his apartment? Oh that was slick Willy.

        Exacly. My point entirely. Pres Trump us very morale and godly. Believes in Jesus and go to church every Sunday then spends the day with his doting wife and son, who he brags about daily on Twitter. I’d trust him alone with my wife who is a ten he would never reach for her vag.

      “In 2002, for instance, the real estate developer told New York, “I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” Per the New York Times, in 1992, Trump directed Florida businessman George Houraney to organize a “calendar girl” competition at Mar-a-Lago, and after 28 female contestants were procured, revealed that the other guests were just “him and Epstein.” Video footage from that same year shows the two men partying together at the Palm Beach resort with cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins, laughing, chatting, and, in the case of Trump, pawing at women. The friendly relationship continued for more than 10 years after that, with the two men reportedly dining at Epstein’s mansion and attending many of the same dinner parties; according to Epstein’s brother, Mark, Trump would comp Epstein’s mother and aunt at one of his Atlantic City casino hotels and flew on Epstein’s private jet—the one he allegedly used to ferry underage girls to his private island of horrors—“numerous times.” One person who observed both men told the Washington Post that “they were tight” and that, nauseatingly, “they were each other’s wingmen.”

        When YOU get to be a billionaire, what do you think the ‘percs’ will be…a bigger riding lawnmower? A pony for your kids? Grow up. Wealthy and successful people get to do lots of things that you never, ever will. Put on your big-boy pants.

          Try to follow along. The poster denied that Epstein and Trump were buddies. They were, and we don’t know what the two of them were up to when the cameras weren’t rolling. Trump banned Epstein from his resort when a real estate deal between the two of them went bad not because of his penchance for young girls.

            Billionaires don’t need Jeffrey Epstein to procure girls. When you have Trumps kind of money, women throw themselves at you. It’s not much for propping up an anti-Trumpers’ agenda, but it really is the way things work. Too bad. So sad.

            Right or wrong, yes they do. Every single day, and you cannot handle the truth.

            And Phil Haney didn’t write a book about Trump. Phil wrote a book about Obama, and now, Phil is dead.

            I cannot believe you condone 13 year old girls being forced into sex with anyone. It is illegal and it is disgusting. Do you have daughters, granddaughters, or sisters? Do you hold them in the ‘high esteem’ you hold the rest of the women in the world? You are a sick person and, unfortunately, it is evident you support Trump.
