Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. called Anita Hill this month to express his regret over “what she endured” testifying against Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991.
Stating obvious here: Biden had 28 years to say something. Called weeks before his presidential launch https://t.co/8DfRSML2KS
Other than Anita Hill hanging up on him, I’m unsure how this could have gone worse for @JoeBiden. Serves him right. He had 28 years to apologize, and he tried this right before launching a presidential campaign. Probably thought it would stay secret, too. https://t.co/GNHU3gBjXJ
NEWS: Anita Hill told me yesterday that Joe Biden called her a few weeks ago, but she was left feeling dissatisfied and doesn't feel he has taken full responsibility. "I cannot be satisfied by simply saying I’m sorry for what happened to you." w/@jmartnyt https://t.co/E2iv6ODZgQ

No but really this is a textbook for what real tshuvah/repentance work isn't. 1/x "Mr. Biden has long cast the hearings in passive terms, as something that happened to Ms. Hill, not something he and others did to her." https://t.co/CoQFsRex6o
Anita Hill: "He needs to give an apology to the other women and to the American public because we know now how deeply disappointed Americans around the country were about what they saw. And not just women." https://t.co/5lDchbes5y

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.
There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.
This is what the political web is talking about right now.
Today in one sentence: The White House rejected a House Oversight Committee request for Stephen Miller to testify; House Democrats suggested fining officials personally for noncompliance with congressional subpoenas; Trump claimed he never told Donald McGahn to fire Robert Mueller despite the Mueller report showing otherwise; and Trump's re-election campaign refused to rule out using hacked information.
