Biden on Anita Hill: I Wish I Had Power To Gavel Down Senators Harassing Her

Joe Biden wanted to tell the those Republican Senators to shut up...


Biden chaired the hearings, in which Anita Hill testified that she was sexually harassed by Clarence Thomas when he was her boss at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Republicans on the Senate Judiciary panel questioned Hill’s account, and Thomas denied the allegations.

Biden said on PBS that he felt badly about his “inability to be able to silence the Republican critics on the committee.”
