Kamala Harris Once Stood By Biden Accusers – ‘I Believe Them’

When she was still seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, the Democrats’ newly announced vice presidential pick Kamala Harris said last year that she believed the women who accused Joe Biden of touching them without their consent.

“I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” Harris told reporters in April of 2019.

When Kamala Harris was still running for president she declared she believed the accusers and so did some other Democrats

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and former vice president Biden was accused of inappropriately touching or kissing four women. The women said his interactions with them were inappropriate and made them uncomfortable.

Fellow Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made similar comments about the allegations against Biden at the time.

“I think we need to listen to those who are raising their stories, who have the courage to come forward to share their experience,” O’Rourke said.

Biden tried to explain

Biden addressed the accusations against him in a video via Twitter.

“I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say you can do this,” Biden explained. “Whether they’re women, men, young, old, it’s the way I’ve always been. It’s the way I’ve tried to show I care about them and listen.”

Does Kamala Harris ‘believe’ Biden’s accusers now?

“I hear what they’re saying. I understand it,” he continued. “And I’ll be much more mindful. That’s my responsibility. That’s my responsibility, and I’ll meet it.”

In a statement, Biden initially said of the allegations, “In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately.”

“If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully,” Biden said. “But it was never my intention.”

Regardless, the record still stands that Kamala Harris said she believed Biden’s accusers.

Does she now? Will any debate moderators ask this question?
