Democratic Senator Who Believed Kavanaugh Accuser All Of A Sudden Doesn’t Believe Biden Accuser

(RightWingAmericans.Com)- Let the hypocrisy games begin!
Just two years ago, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, was blasting then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the entire confirmation process. Gillibrand was upset that people were trying to get Christine Blasey Ford to testify during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. Ford had accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Now, Gillibrand has apparently had a change of heart when it comes to defending women who accuse powerful men of sexual assault.
On Tuesday, she threw her full support behind Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who has also recently been accused of sexually assaulting a former staffer.
The hypocrisy that Gillibrand is displaying is obvious in her comments now and those back in 2018.
During a conference call Tuesday, she said:
“I stand by [former] vice president Biden. He’s devoted his life to supporting women, and he has vehemently denied this allegation.”
In 2018, Gillibrand said this in regard to Kavanaugh and his confirmation hearing:
“Without the benefit of an FBI investigation … and without the benefit of corroborating witnesses being able to testify, it’s a sham [confirmation] hearing.”
So, apparently, while Gillibrand wasn’t willing to take Kavanaugh, a Republican, at his word when he denied sexual assault allegations that happened years before, she’s willing to do so for Biden, a Democrat, who is in pretty much the exact same situation.
The two cases are oddly familiar.
In 2018, Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when the two were teenagers back in 1982. She said he pinned her down, groped her over her clothing, tried to remove her clothing and then covered her mouth when she tried to scream.
Kavanaugh denied the allegations.
In March of this year, Tara Reade accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993 while Reade was a staffer for him when he was a Senator representing Delaware. Since then, numerous sources have stepped forward to corroborate her story, including a former neighbor who earlier this week said Reade described the assault to her back in 1995.
Biden’s campaign has denied the allegations.
The main difference in these two incidents — at least as it seems to relate to Gillibrand — is that Biden is a Democrat and Kavanaugh is a conservative who was nominated for the Supreme Court by Republican President Donald Trump.
Gillibrand hasn’t said why she believes Biden without the need for an FBI investigation but wouldn’t believe Kavanaugh without one. So, the only thing people can do is try to draw their own conclusions, such as the Senator is toting the party line here.
This isn’t to say that Biden is guilty and Kavanaugh is not guilty. At this point, there are only four people who really know what did and didn’t happen — the two accusers and the two accused.
If we are to truly live up to the good things that the MeToo movement has brought about, including hearing out women accusers, then we need to hear out all of them, regardless of their party affiliation or that of the person they are accusing.
Gillibrand should take that lesson to heart.
