In 2016, U.S. intelligence found proof that Vladimir Putin and Russian intelligence worked to interfere with the U.S. election in order to help candidate Donald Trump win. Upon this discovery, the American people were warned that we shouldn’t expect the 2020 election to be any different. Russia will, and undoubtedly has already started their likely disinformation and smear campaigns against Trump’s opponent Joe Biden.
Over the course of the past couple of years, Tara Reade has gone from praising Joe Biden for his honesty, to last year alleging that he sexually harassed her, to now claiming that she was sexually assaulted by the former senator and vice president.
While every woman’s claims should always and absolutely be heard, as with any allegation, all of the evidence should be evaluated as well. In Reade’s case, there is plenty of evidence that casts doubt upon her claims — claims which seem to evolve with the weeks. Some people believe her accusations without even considering the alternatives, while others believe that there is something more sinister driving her. There are plenty of theories out there, many of which are just pure speculation or even border on conspiracy theory. One theory that has arisen is that Russia could somehow be orchestrating at least part of what has been going on. While we certainly aren’t making this claim, the links between Reade and Russia appear to be plentiful. This article will focus on them.
NOTE: The purpose of this article is to gather facts concerning connections we’ve discovered, and disseminate them in an orderly fashion. There’s a lot of rumors and false information spreading on the internet concerning Tara Reade’s Russian connections. No one has gathered all of this information and put it in a single place yet, so that’s our goal. We are not implying anything about Reade or her motives from this article. We’re just sharing information that might be useful in both debunking or supporting claims, theories and rumors circulating on the internet. We hope that other journalists can use this to further research, debunk, or validate many of the theories out there.
