I am an expert in trauma and I've dedicated my career to helping survivors. Since I came out in support of Tara Reade:

-my professional reputation has been attacked

-my employers have been contacted with coordinated attempts to get me fired
-articles have been planted in news outlets to attack me professionally

-my personal character has been impugned.

All of this has been done by Democrats in support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. They are complicit.

I have the receipts.
It's important to note: this is nothing compared to what Tara has faced. That said, to be ruthlessly attacked by troll farms associated with the DNC because I stood up for a victim of sexual assault is unacceptable and shows who the Dems really are.
It is clear that the Democrats are enemies of the #MeToo movement. This includes the party establishment, the "Resistance" voters, the msm and the Dem operatives. Yes, it includes you, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. You are complicit.
And as far as the operatives go, the people behind these attacks- we know who you are. And we will draw the connections between you and the people who paid you.
Sally Albright and your ragtag group of dunces: We see you. We know you worked for Newt Gingrich in the 1990s. We know you are really a Republican. You will be brought out into the light.
And as far as the others go, Democracy Partners come to mind. Your tired repertoire of dirty tricks won't save you.

The Democrats and their allies worked to bury the truth about Weinstein, and now they're doing the same to bury the truth about Tara Tara Reade. You will not win.
Corporate groups such as @TIMESUPNOW who pretend to care about victims, but refuse to help those harmed by their bosses in the Democratic Party: We see you, too. You are complicit in rape culture and the perpetuation of sexual assault.
Trying to take down a survivor and her allies is classic Clinton/Biden cult warfare. But it won't work anymore.

We know that Joe Biden sexually assaulted @ReadeAlexandra. We won't be silent.

The truth will come out.

Your clock is running out. Tick tock.

Joe Biden presided over Clarence Thomas hearings when Anita Hill accused Thomas of workplace sexual misconduct. Right before he a mounted his prez run, Biden called Hill. She said the conversation was inadequate and that it left her 'deeply unsatisfied'. nytimes.com/2019/04/25/us/…
Anita Hill also said that Biden's actions during the Thomas hearings had harmed her and other victims.
Hill also said that Biden 'set the stage' for what went on in the Kavanaugh hearings, where the reputation of Dr. Blasey Ford was attacoed by GOP. Anita Hill then said she was troubled by recent disclosures of Biden inappropriately touching women.

To those who question why Tara Reade didn't go to police after being sexually assaulted by Biden in 1993-
A thread:

25 years before #MeToo and sexual assault was not taken seriously

Police were not trained in sexual assault then and often dissuaded victms from pursuing cases
Joe Biden was a powerful Senator who could have destroyed any chances Tara had of ever working in DC again- her dream
I have been a director at 2 rape crisis centers on Long Island, in counties with a total population of 2.8 million.

I have trained police, prosecutors and judges in both counties.

Bill Clinton's FBI ignored Jeffrey Epstein victim Maria Farmer's complaints about Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell when she went to them in 1996 w/her story of exploitation and intimidation.
amp.news.com.au/entertainment/…
Records show that Epstein visited Bill Clinton in the White House multiple times in the early 1990s and donated $10,000 to a White House charity at that time, even attending dinners w/Clinton- before Farmer ever went to the FBI.
thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epstei…
The Clintons' relationship w/Epstein, and eventually Maxwell, is far deeper than they have acknowledged. Had the FBI pursued a case against Epstein in 1996, countless girls and young women could have been saved.

At the heart of criticisms against Tara Reade is a serious lack of understanding on how trauma affects people.
As a professional who has worked with trauma victims most of my career, and who trains judges, police and other professionals about it, I am concerned that this lack of understanding trauma clouds not only Reade's case, but makes it more unlikely that victims will come fwd.
Being obsessed with small details- like what part of a hallway the rape took place in- shows a lack of understanding of how trauma memories get stored in the brain.

I have worked in the field of sexual violence and trauma most of my career. What follows are a few thoughts about Tara Reade and why her allegations need to be taken seriously. #IBelieveTaraReade
First- I have worked with hundreds of victims of sexual assault in my life as a director and then a senior director at two rape crisis centers in New York. Currently, I teach professionals about how victims disclose and how hmtrauma affects them.
I have trained thousands of professionals in the NY region and around the country on this subject. I have trained over 1,000 trial judges in NY in the past couple of years and as recently as the beginning of March of this year.
