Biden accuser Tara Reade dropped as client by lawyer

Source: Axios

Douglas Wigdor, whose firm has represented plaintiffs in high-profile discrimination cases, announced Friday that he was no longer representing Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer who has accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993.

The state of play: While Wigdor did not provide a reason behind his firm's decision, he did say that the move is "by no means a reflection" on the veracity of her allegations.

Some of Wigdor's most notable cases have taken on Fox News, including former top host Bill O'Reilly, and Harvey Weinstein.

Despite his caseload, Wigdor has also garnered press for being a staunch conservative and supporter of President Trump.

1. As a former Gary Hart supporter, I applaud this move.

This story needs to hit the MSM for visibility.

Well Mr. Wigdor, it is hard to assess this as anything but a reflection on the veracity of her allegations.

11. Its more than civility, I believe...

... that there is a professional obligation to not allow the departure to prejudice the client's case.
