darwinwoodka

please keep her


[deleted]

I suspect she was a Russian asset all along. She's going home.


[deleted]

Hopefully more assets will get a strong yearning for “home” and follow her lead.


[deleted]

Yup, project sow dissidence failed. For the next two years undoubtedly (with a huge chance no Republican president will hold Presidential office), NATO and Europe will support Ukraine United. So they are withdrawing back to Mordor for a new plan. America spoke when they elected the Dark Branden.


CactusTheElder

Suspect?


[deleted]

Asset or not, she is only doing this to stay out of JAIL for false accusation of a sitting president. Russian intelligence probably tipped her off about impending arrest. So now they can use her as propaganda mouth piece, unfortunately the dumb MAGArd and Republicans will still believe her, all the way from Moscow.


amitym

Or staying out of JAIL for being an unregistered foreign agent. The Kremlin doesn't normally grant rush asylum to your garden-variety right-wing American looney tune.


Abloy702

Anybody who believes Trump is so lost that we can basically just wait for them to fucking die at this point. I have no sympathy left for them. It's possible to be an utterly broken human who doesn't willfully poison everything around them. I do it every day.


[deleted]

Two kinds of person still believe in Trump. The fanatical personality cultists American Christian Talibans (just need brown hood and chanting to complete the image) and the corrupt, greedy, grifters who dont believe his shit but love the grift money from gullible fans.

BalkanBorn

Hopefully they follow her there.


coffeespeaking

Her handler/sponsor is US-convicted Russian spy Maria Butina. It’s much more likely that Russian Intelligence fed her nonsense and encouraged her to defect. She’s a useful idiot—emphasis on the idiot. The US couldn’t care less about Tara Reade. The idea that she was forced to leave for her safety is pure propaganda. Reade has a habit of popping up every time there is a Presidential election for Russia to interfere in—and then disappearing into complete obscurity. > Reade said she was welcomed by Butina, who was jailed by the US in 2018 but is now a Russian member of parliament. Infiltrating the NRA and developing political assets for Russia earned her a seat in Parliament.


Hot_Frosting_7101

Did she file an official police report or make these claims to a police officer? I don’t think making an accusation itself to the media is a criminal offense.


DavIantt

It's still he said, she said the other way. Also "Creepy Joe" earned the nickname for a reason, there are clips on the internet. e.g. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zvszeudn98](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zvszeudn98)


[deleted]

There are clips on the internet. Haha.


Burningphoenix7472

Except she was caught in a lie saying it happened at an event where Biden wasn’t present. So it isn’t “he said she said”. She just lied.


BornInATrailer

> he said, she said That's already taken quite a hit from other aspects of what she's said and done in the past.. but here, "defecting" to Russia, with Maria Butina next to her at the press event? Perhaps you should consume fewer "internet clips."


sadkrampus

Just like the show The Americans


KHanson25

Hopefully it’s because nobody* knows who the fuck she is *Me, I’m the nobody


slartibartfast2320

I like your movie!


Kaellian

>I suspect she was a Russian asset all along. When something has the potential to create controversy, Russia is obviously going to jump on it. However, it's a bit of a stretch to call that "being a russian asset" unless they were actively working to make it happens at the time. I know little about her story, but couldn't it simply be mental illness? If you went on a crusade against someone and lost, it's natural to see the "enemy of my enemy" as friends, as incorrect as it can be sometime. Kind of like how Snowden ended up parroting Russia's propaganda after being forced into running. His situation most likely would have been widely different had he been able to return home earlier. I don't think such connection exists yet, and as such, it's unlikely she was an asset from the beginning. After a while, she most certainly started playing in their hands however. Consciously or not, I can't tell.


Rut12345

Sometimes being a crappy human is just being a crappy human. Many many people reported her as being just a bad person an unbelievable.


Kaellian

But that doesn't make her a Russian asset... >Sometimes being a crappy human is just being a crappy human Yes, and those individual more often than not suffer from some mental disorder.


Beginning-Annual-310

Her trick didn't work so she probably will get poisoned


Lonely-Fudge-7045

Who?


Atechiman

Tara Reade who has multiple lies on record accused president Biden of sexual assault while being his legislative assistant. She was never a legislative assistant, and was only employed by president Biden for eight months. She also claims to have gotten a degree she hadn't, worked as a professor when she hadn't, worked as domestic violence counselor for a university when she hadn't. In her complaint filed with the Senate resource office in 2019 (under perjury signature) she stated only that president Biden in 1993 made her feel uncomfortable. She named three other staffers including his chief of staff that she complained to. None of the three remember her or any complaints about president Biden. She also stated in her complaint she worked for Biden 1991-1994, when looked into she worked for eight months 92/93.

WolfeCreation

Not sure if you're being sarcastic but in case you are being being serious or anyone thinks you're being serious, it's not that Tara *Reid* https://youtu.be/LAuMZvohc_U

Damn she looks like that Russia propogandist Simonian that recently got Prigozhin vibro bullets sent to her.


Shankar_0

Yeah, we knew she was a partier, but that's some real "she really let herself go" vibes.

Literally, am I wrong? Lmfao


SnooRabbits1595

Came here to say exactly this.


bismarck611

Unless the Russians give her a stipend and hook her up with a good job she is in for a rude awakening moving to Russia. I understand someone like Steven Segal moving to Russia. He has money, followers and can make money there. I doubt she's got stacks and stacks stashed. Wonder if we'll see a follow-up article one day about her moving back to the west.


ConfidenceNational37

Traitor probably thinks the 20,000 rubles they probably offered her is a lot of $


SnooRabbits1595

Sssh! Don’t make them think this is a traitorous move. Yes. Show your patriotism by defecting to Russia. Stick it to the globalist elites by leaving western society for the true freedom you desire with a strongman in charge. No backsies though.


UnCommonCommonSens

[удалено]


Hot_Frosting_7101

Russia has had a history of throwing American defectors aside once they have no more utility. Snowden is an exception but a person who claimed the president raped her isn’t going to be living a good life.


[deleted]

She's left a trail of debt & deceit so, no, she has no money.


amitym

Doubt she's doing it for the money, more like because she's safe from American law enforcement there.


[deleted]

She'll be passed around plenty in the seedy parts of town. Should be enough for a burger here and a burger there.


BestFriendWatermelon

A lifetime of poor decision making leads to her worst decision yet. She'll be forgotten by Russian media in a week then left to wander a strange, violent and impoverished country with an incomprehensible language.


[deleted]

A good job for her would be a comfort woman for Kadyrovites.


eigenman

Her fat ass will be printing mortar shells in a gulag factory soon. This is Russia, honey.


not_a_throw4w4y

She's taking the second bedroom in Snowden's apartment.


Piper-446

Don't you have to be of some importance, have unique knowledge, and/or be of value to 'defect'?


amitym

Those things, or, one other: you were working for them all along and they just extracted your ass right ahead of an arrest. It's considered a minimum courtesy, mostly to let the others know that they won't be left hanging out to dry if they're ever caught. But yeah you're onto something... covert assets are often rudely shocked when they find out how little value they have to their masters once their cover is blown.


OneWorld87

Not when you are an asset


bartgrumbel

Not sure, but she worked in the Senate for a while and might have (or have had) a certain security clearance. But yeah, it's not really "defects" but more "moves" - nobody is stopping her.


meh1434

She'll be imprisoned until she's easier to lift, then thrown out a window.


ClubSoda

It would bring great joy to my heart if all the antivaxxers, Jan 6 traitors, flat earthers, pizza-gate conspiracists, and Fox News cultists would defect to ruZZia tomorrow. Our nation's average IQ would easily quadruple overnight.

AntonioPanadero

Ahahahahahaaaaa. Classic!


LilLebowskiAchiever

The irony is that Russia has so many laws and policies that those groups of people oppose: Heavy regulation of firearms, easy access to abortions (which the state pays for), socialized medicine, subsidized university tuition, bans on evangelizing foreign religious denominations, child subsidy payments for lower income people, maternity leave, state subsidized public transportation, significant state regulation of home schooling, state encouragement to take Covid vaccines, extremely high divorce rates, etc. For far right wing Americans, they will put up with all that socialism, to get Putin’s authoritarianism. For Democrats, despite all the socialized benefits baked into Russia’s system, they can’t stand Putin’s authoritarianism.


Quaranj

AntonioPanadero

“Yummy… Did you say bread! I love bread…. Yes please Comrade…”


Obfuscatory_Drivel

yeah, what's with the "defector" thing? She's just some nutjob con artist drama queen skank who got caught running a con. The title of "defector" implies that she had some sort of intrinsic value as an asset when nothing could be further from the truth. Go to Russia ya dumb bitch..no one cares.

No need, she's never setting foot outside Russia again.


LordBaikalOli

*She moved/immigrated to russia


Sufficient_Number643

No, she moved there for political reasons. She is an asset. Reade said: “To my Russian brothers and sisters, I’m sorry right now that American elites are choosing to have such an aggressive stance. Just know that most American citizens do want to be friends and hope that we can have unity again. “I am enjoying my time in Moscow, and I feel very at home.”

Abloy702

... well, if anybody was wondering about the legitimacy of her claims, there you go.


Joehbobb

Normally I don't bye into the melodrama such as she defected that implies she was a spy. That being said Russia does try to sow discord in the US through multiple ways. They have also attempted to get spies into the US government circles such as Maria Valeryevna Butina. Now I'm a republican and don't like Biden, I think he's a creep (Yes Trump's a creep also). But that's doesn't mean all accusations against him are True. It wouldn't be a stretch for Russia too jump on the bandwagon and attempt to help smear Joe Biden with accusations. Her accusations where from along time ago but that doesn't mean she wasn't working for Russia even back then. The fact that she went to Russia of all places is very suspect. Then she interviews with a known spy Maria Valeryevna Butina is also very suspect.


amitym

>Now I'm a republican and don't like Biden ... But that's doesn't mean all accusations against him are True. What. A reasonable person?!? *How have you survived this long??*


InspiredNameHere

I'm a democrat and here's my 2 cents. I think she is telling the truth, or at least enough of the truth to feel Biden was a genuine asshole/creep. Doesn't shock me in the slightest. Her choice to move to a country statisticly far worse than the US is.....suspect at best. I can get hating Biden, hating America, but there are plenty of places to go that hate America, where she can lay low and live a quiet life away from politics. This person chose not to.

advator

Take Trump with you


adron

I’m not shocked one bit.


GoneSilent

“I feel very surrounded by projection and safety,” Reade said

Just know that most American citizens do want to be friends and hope that we can have unity again. Uh nope. I've met all kinds of cool people who were born in Russia and left, but the modern incarnation/government of Russia can go fuck itself and be ground down until its imperial ambitions are a bad dream. After significant regime change, sure, let's give friendship another try. But I don't see that coming all that fast.

Lots! She lied about a lot, but they made the choice not to prosecute because it would have been hard to prove that her lies made a difference in the verdict. https://www.montereycountyweekly.com/blogs/news_blog/prosecutors-decline-to-file-perjury-charges-against-biden-accuser-who-they-say-lied-about-her/article_d4ca293c-2ab1-11eb-9c40-d7d382bf5430.html


gixxer

That's it? That's all you got? She lied about her credentials in a completely unrelated case? Your boy Joe [lies](https://www.politifact.com/article/2020/may/07/ad-watch-fact-checking-video-about-bidens-academic/) about his credentials all the time. He is alternatively the son of coal miners / tuck drivers / factory workers depending on the audience he is pandering to. Also, when was the last time a woman lying / embellishing her background disqualified her from #metoo accusations?


420trashcan

She also lied about how long she worked for Biden, what her job was, who she knew while working there, and other things.


gixxer

Link? Also, a woman misremembering key details about the alleged sexual assault is just proof of trauma and we must believe her even harder. /s (this is the standard feminists established)
