Oh for goodness sake, this woman.
First, yes, believe all woman. Then, do your research on said women. And if they end up being liars, then you don’t have to believe them anymore. Which is the case of Tara Reade.
Reade, the woman who accused then-presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her, has apparently defected to Moscow, Russia because she just isn’t safe in America anymore.
Speaking in Moscow at a press conference hosted by the Russian government’s Sputnik news service (how convenient!), Reade claimed that she had felt her life was endangered in the United States. She was accompanied at the event by Maria Butina, convicted of espionage in the United States in a scandal that embroiled leaders of the National Rifle Association, and of course a certain former Senator:

Reade proclaimed her intention to apply for Russian citizenship, with the assistance of Butina and Vladimir Putin. Must be nice to be able to get Putin on the horn like that. But I guess when you want to cause some election interference, Putin is more willing to take your calls.
“I’m still kind of in a daze but I feel very good,” she said. “I feel very surrounded by protection and safety. And I just really appreciate Maria Butina and everyone who’s been giving me that at a time when it’s been very difficult to know whether I’m safe or not. I just didn’t want to walk home and walk into a cage or be killed, which is basically my two choices. I felt that while this election is gearing up and there’s so much at stake, I’m almost better off being here and just being safe.”
Reade repeated her allegations of sexual abuse by Biden in 1993, when she worked in his Senate office, and further claimed she had been threatened recently after agreeing to testify at a Congressional hearing which she was invited to by…surprise, surprise…Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz.
“I only know that when I got off the plane in Moscow, I felt safe and I felt heard and I felt respected, and that has not happened in my own country.” She said that she had informed Gaetz of her trip to Moscow. According to her, Gaetz described her as a “whistleblower and added, “Tara, I’m worried about your safety in our country.”
She added that “as a geopolitical analyst,” she is tired of the war in Ukraine and complained that “our economy is crashing”. FYI, Reade is no more a “geopolitical analyst” than I am. And as you’ve probably guessed, I’m not one.
Reade had previously tweeted that she felt her life was in danger and that should something happen to her, to investigate Biden. She wrote, “I want to make something clear. If something happens to me, all roads lead to Joe Biden. Joe Biden and DNC political machine threats, bullying and intimidation over the last three years will not work. I am not suicidal. I should not be under investigation nor am I a foreign agent. I am a private citizen. I was a former staffer of Joe Biden’s that has chosen to step forward to tell the truth. The tactics using intimidation and bullying to silence me and suppress me using DOJ and FBI and social media will not work. Leave me alone. I will testify under oath in Congress if asked to do so and tell what happened and what I know. The Biden corruption must end. Period Thank you @RepMTG and @mattgaetz for inviting me to testify and caring about the truth!”

From the Daily Beast:
Reade has a history of publicly supporting Putin, including one September 2019 tweet where she claimed Americans “support” the Russian leader. After Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, Reade took to her YouTube channel to promote Russian officials—and criticize the censorship of “good news outlets like [state media] RT]” in the U.S.
In December, Semafor reported that Russian diplomats tried to bring Reade to a meeting on “weapons diversion,” even though she had no known expertise on the topic. While Reade ultimately did not speak at the UN meeting, she did interview Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations on her YouTube channel afterward.
“Your name was too toxic for them and they did everything they could to block you from participating,” Dimitry Polyanskiy told Reade in the interview.
Of course Reade’s accusations have all been debunked, and she’s been been found to be quite a scammer. This Politico article details just all the scams she has committed, and she simply isn’t someone to be believed. This New York Times article also completely reveals that she is lying.
Obviously Biden denied the charges, and no one who knew her at the time or who worked for Biden at the time ever heard or saw of anything she alleges happening. She’s just a liar being used by the right and now RUSSIA to hurt Biden as we go into election season.
And people were quick to call her out:
HAHAHAHAHA! Tara Reade has “Defected” to Moscow. Never has the word “defect” been so accurate! Now she has to share bag of potatoes & bottle of Vodka at the FSB “Traitors Motel” with @Snowden, Steven Segal and John “BAMA” McIntyre. In the immortal words of me, “SHE’S RUSSIA’S… https://t.co/7tdXStISZH

Now that Tara Reade has defected to Russia, it’s pretty clear the reason she falsely accused Joe Biden of sexual assault is because she was a Russian operative all along. By the way, she just gave a press conference with convicted Russian spy, Maria Butina. pic.twitter.com/goxyit7iiX

Remember Tara Reade that pro-Putin grifter who falsely accused Biden of sexual assault, a story people like Ryan Grim ran with, whose links to Russia were dismissed as an outrageous smear against an alleged survivor of assault? Well she’s just announced she has defected to Russia pic.twitter.com/up6ECdBa9m
