On the Biden allegations

Y'all, seriously. If you support Biden you need to be supporting looking into the allegations. If he didn't do it we need to get this out of the way now. If he did do it, we need to get this out of the way now and figure out how to deal with it—keep him on the ticket and figure out how on earth to defend that, replace him on the ticket, literally whatever you want to do with it, better in May than in October. If you want to argue that the allegations are not a problem even if they're true, man do I not have a lot of time for you *but* as a purely tactical matter you should *still* support investigating them, to move beyond them.

If instead of investigating the allegations and addressing them head-on, you try to simply ignore the allegations or nudge them gently aside or angrily strike them down, they shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. I don't see how anyone who lived through the 2016 election could possibly think otherwise.
