Anita Hill on Thursday said she wants to hold Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden “accountable” for his role in the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Hill, who accused the conservative jurist of sexual harassment during the hearings, indicated she may get involved in the 2020 Democratic primary. She said Biden caused her “harm” during the proceedings and she is “ready” to hold the Democratic frontrunner “accountable.”
