Feminist attorney Lisa Bloom, who once worked on behalf of Harvey Weinstein, said Friday that though she believes 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden sexually assaulted Tara Reade, she will still be supporting him, as reported by Daily Caller.

Bloom, a sexual harassment attorney who represented accusers of President Donald Trump and former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, tweeted her support for Reade Friday but emphasized that she will still be voting for Biden.

“I believe you, Tara Reade. You have people who remember you told them about this decades ago. We know he is ‘handsy.’ You’re not asking for $. You’ve obviously struggled mightily with this. I still have to fight Trump, so I will still support Joe. But I believe you. And I’m sorry,” Lisa Bloom tweeted on Friday.

Tara Reade worked as a Senate staffer for Biden in 1993 and has accused the then-senator of kissing her, touching her, and penetrating her with his fingers without her consent.

On Sunday, Lisa Bloom took to Twitter again to clarify why she is choosing Joe Biden over President Donald Trump.

“The only alternative is Trump, credibly accused of sexual misconduct by over 20 women and who openly bragged about sexual assault. I represented 4 of them. We’ve only 2 choices. Trump’s ignorance and arrogance has resulted in COVID deaths of tens of thousands. Far worse,” she claimed. Continued Below

“Biden will appoint a progressive female VP, and has a long history of fighting for women’s rights. Trump opposes everything I care about: climate change, human rights, treating immigrants with respect. I understand Ms. Reade has this same struggle as she opposes Trump too,” Bloom tweeted.

“Ms. Reade’s struggle is just like that of the hundreds of victims I’ve represented for decades, and still do. I have also sued and gone after many Democrats though I am a lifelong Dem. I used to think sexual assault was more common on the right but it’s not. It’s everywhere,” she wrote.

The Daily caller reported that Bloom came under for her work representing the late alleged sex predator Harvey Weinstein. Bloom reportedly offered to help Weinstein discredit actresses accusing him of sexual assault by portraying them as “pathological liar[s],” according to a book written by two New York Times reporters. Bloom reportedly wrote in a memo that she could leverage her experience working on behalf of sexual assault victims to discredit Weinstein’s accusers. Continued Below
