CNN anchor Jake Tapper needed Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Sunday on "State of the Union," asking whether sexual assault allegations against former VP Joe Biden deserve the same attention that Democrats gave similar allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Wittmer said she trusts Biden's denial and "not every claim is equal."
JAKE TAPPER, CNN: You said you believe Vice President Biden. I want to compare that to 2018 when you said you believed Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford after she accused now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh of assault.
Kavanaugh also, like Biden, categorically denied that accusation and Blasey-Ford, to be honest, she did not have the contemporaneous accounts of her view of what happened that Tara Reade does. You have spoken movingly about how you're a survivor of assault yourself. Why do you believe Biden and not Kavanaugh? Are they not both entitled to the same presumption of innocence regardless of their political views?
