So she’s a liar?

Prosecutors in Monterey County, California, have opened a probe into whether Tara Reade, the woman accusing Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexual assault nearly two decades ago, lied under oath when testifying in recent trials focused on domestic violence, the district attorney’s office said.
“We are investigating whether [she] gave false testimony under oath,” Monterey County chief assistant district attorney Berkley Brannon said in a statement to ABC News.
The new probe was first reported by Politico, marking the latest development after news accounts last week questioned previous statements she had made about her credentials while on the stand. It’s unclear exactly which portions of her in-court appearances prosecutors are currently reviewing, but trial transcripts obtained by ABC News suggest she may have misstated her credentials several times.
Each time, before a judge would allow her to testify about the insidious cycles of domestic violence, Reade had to show she had the proper education and experience required to be an “expert witness.”
She often described her 20-year career as “a victim advocate” with local agencies and organizations. But in at least two trials over the past two years, Reade stated she had earned a degree from Antioch University in Seattle.
That is not true, according to Antioch University officials – and it can be a criminal offense to knowingly make false statements under oath.
I have to say that I never trusted this woman.
I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt because that seemed fair, but when her story kept changing that was pretty much it for me.
And now to find out that she is a professional victim who lies about her credentials is essentially the nail in her credibility coffin.
