Campaign officials for presidential hopeful Joe Biden reportedly told their supporters and spokespeople to defend the former vice president using a New York Times‘ investigation into an allegation of sexual assault.
But there is a huge problem.
The New York Times investigation didn’t exonerate Biden. In fact, the Times feels so strongly about that fact that they released a statement pointing out Biden’s assessment of their report was “inaccurate,” according to Breitbart.

Although Biden’s campaign claimed the Times found Tara Reade’s story “did not happen,” the Times sharply disputed the claim: “Our investigation made no conclusion either way.”
