A resurfaced clip on "Larry King Live" in 1993 appears to show the mother of Tara Reade—who has accused Joe Biden of past sexual assault while in the Senate—alluding to “problems” her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator.
H/T: Fox News
The Intercept on Friday first reported the transcript of a broadcast from Aug. 11, 1993, of a woman from San Luis Obispo County, Calif., calling in to the show about her daughter's experience on Capitol Hill.
"San Luis Obispo, California, hello," King begins.
"Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him," the caller says.
"In other words, she had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?" King inquires.
"That’s true," the woman responds before King cuts away to a panel to discuss her claim.

But no one is disputing that Tara Reade worked for Joe Biden. Yet the media is treating her sexual assault allegations against him totally differently.#OperationProtectBiden pic.twitter.com/GUZr9HNeGK
New Evidence Supports Credibility of Tara Reade’s Allegation Against Biden https://t.co/0H6on210Ks— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) April 25, 2020
CNN gave airtime to Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys, her friends, her family.— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) April 25, 2020
They even aired focus groups on the allegations.
It’s been 24 hrs since evidence from CNN own's archive emerged corroborating Tara Reade's story.
How in the world can CNN justify not mentioning it?
Shockingly, the words "Tara Reade" are nowhere to be found in this @nytimes puff piece on creepy @JoeBiden’s campaign. But don’t worry guys, there’s a lot of tough reporting in here like Joe having dinner with his wife and going on bike rides! 🙄 pic.twitter.com/4Up5GPobYK— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 25, 2020
