The hearing saw law professor Anita Hill accuse Thomas of persistent sexual harassment. He has faced heavy criticism over his handling of the hearings. Biden did not call corroborating witnesses who were not called to appear before the committee to back up Hill's story. Joe has defended how he treated Hill, saying 'I don't think I treated her badly.' He called Hill but Hill told the press that the call was not what she considered "an apology." Joe's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, told NPR's Rachel Martin "It's time to move on" from the controversy.
