What did Joe Biden know? And when did he forget it?

◼️◼️◼️◼️ He’s getting worse.◼️◼️◼️ Joe Biden marred his facts on Thursday during a virtual roundtable with three governors supporting his campaign. While speaking with Govs. Ned Lamont (D-CT), Phil Murphy (D-NJ), and Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Biden said, “We’re in the middle of a pandemic that has cost us more than 85,000 jobs as of today. Lives of millions of people, millions of people, millions of jobs.” To date, there have been 85,066 deaths in American blamed on COVID-19, and over 1.4 million cases in the U.S., according to Reuters. There have been 300,798 deaths globally, arcgis.com reported. Over 26 million jobs have been lost for U.S. workers in the five weeks since the coronavirus outbreak began, according to NPR. The event kicked off awkwardly when Biden was introduced but wasn’t notified he was on camera and was supposed to begin. He sat in silence for several moments and stared down at the floor before he was prompted to begin. “Go ahead, sir,” an aide faintly said off camera. Note: the Twitter account @TrumpWarRoom boosted the audio level to make it more audible. Another time, he seemed to forget the name of one of his top health advisers.

Douglas Wigdor, the attorney for Tara Reade, told Breitbart News on Friday morning that former Vice President Joe Biden’s claim not to remember her is all the more reason for him to consent to opening up his Senate records. Biden told MSNBC on Thursday evening that he did not remember Reade, who worked for him as a Senate staffer, and who alleges he sexually assaulted her in 1993. Biden has refused to open his Senate archive, which is housed at the University of Delaware. Wigdor responded in a telephone interview with Breitbart News. Biden “hasn’t been that sharp on many things, not least of which now is not recalling Tara Reade,” Wigdor said, “which is all the more reason why now, frankly, he ought to consent to opening up his record at the University of Delaware.” The former vice president, who is the presumptive Democratic Party nominee for president, has said that he will not consent to his papers being released while he is seeking or serving in public office, because of the risk that information might be taken out of context. But Wigdor says that Biden’s Senate records could be the key to refreshing his memory and establishing the truth. “We’re starting to now see, as the attacks change from her being some sort of a Russian sympathizer, to there being no record of her working there, to [writing] bad checks, to now it’s sort of changed — I’ve seen things about work performance and even the clothing that she was wearing,” Wigdor told Breitbart News. Asked whether the case was “closed,” as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said earlier this month, Wigdor retorted: “The case hasn’t even started.” He challenged Biden to sit down for an interview with NBC’s Megyn Kelly, as Reade had done, noting that his client had granted multiple interviews. Asked why other women had not come forward with similar stories, Wigdor replied: “I think a number of women have come forward who have spoken about his hands-on touching, and looks at them, and things like that [that] made them feel very uncomfortable.
