Top House Democrat Says Tara Reade Allegation against Biden Should Be ‘Investigated Seriously’

Top House Democrat Says Tara Reade Allegation against Biden Should Be ‘Investigated Seriously’Representative Hakeem Jeffries, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Wednesday that the sexual-assault allegation against Joe Biden must be “investigated seriously” and that Biden will likely have to address the claim directly.“It’s got to be taken seriously because this is a serious allegation raised by a serious individual and needs to be investigated seriously. We’ve probably got to hear from him [Biden] at some point directly,” Jeffries said Wednesday on WNYC when asked about Tara Reade's claim that Biden sexually assaulted her when she worked for him as a Senate staffer. “I’m not really in a position to say what is the appropriate mechanism, although this needs to be taken seriously.”Reade alleges that in 1993, when she was a Senate staff assistant for Biden, she was told by a top staffer to bring Biden a duffel bag in a Senate building, and when she met with him he pinned her against a wall and penetrated her with his fingers while forcibly kissing her. In early April of last year, before he announced his run for the Democratic nomination, Reade alleged along with several other women that Biden had touched her inappropriately.Several other top Democrats have stood by the presumptive Democratic nominee as he has denied the allegations, including House speaker Nancy Pelosi, New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is considered one of the contenders to be Biden's running mate.“He’s devoted his life to supporting women, and he has vehemently denied this allegation,” Gillibrand said.“I’m satisfied with how he has responded. I know him. I was proud to endorse him on Monday,” Pelosi said.“I know Joe Biden and I think he's telling the truth and this did not happen,” Abrams said during a CNN appearance.Biden will reportedly appear on MSNBC's Morning Joe and address the allegations on Friday.

As markets plummet, Trump says White House to seek possible payroll tax cuts

As markets plummet, Trump says White House to seek possible payroll tax cutsPresident Trump on Monday evening said he will speak with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Republicans about a possible payroll tax cut that would provide "very substantial relief" amid the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic."We have a great economy, a very strong economy, but this has blindsided the world," Trump said. The coronavirus epidemic, as well as Saudi Arabia cutting oil export prices by nearly 10 percent, is worrying investors, and on Monday, U.S. stocks fell more than 7 percent in the Dow's worst day since 2008. Trump said he wants to meet with McConnell on Tuesday, and in addition to discussing a payroll tax cut, he will also bring up "hourly wage earners getting help so they can be in a position where they are not ever going to miss a paycheck."Trump said the COVID-19 epidemic is "not our country's fault, this is something we've been throw into," and the government is working with the airline, cruise, and travel industries as they will feel the effects of people staying home. "The main thing is we are taking care of the American public," he said.More stories from theweek.com Trump may lose the battle with the coronavirus — but nationalists will win the war The only way to protect the economy is to defeat the virus FDA halts 'most' foreign inspections amid coronavirus outbreak
