Biden to address Tara Reade’s sex assault allegation TOMORROW after ex-staffer said she is willing to testify under oath – The Sun
JOE Biden will break his silence against accuser Tara Reade's sexual assault accusations tomorrow after the former Senate aide said she would testify about her allegations under oath.
The former vice president will address Reade's complaints on Friday in an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe, the show's booking producer confirmed on Twitter Thursday.
In an interview with the Daily Caller, Reade said on Thursday she is willing to testify about her sexual assault allegations under oath.
She has also called on the former vice president to release documents pertaining to his time in the Senate, during which she said Biden inappropriately touched her.
"Joe Biden, I want you to release all the personnel records from 1973 to 2009 and be transparent about your office practices," she said in a separate interview with the outlet on Tuesday.
"I would like to hold you accountable for what happened to me, to how your staff protected you and enabled you, bullied me multiple times into silence."
"You ended my career. You ended my job after you assaulted me. You claim to be the champion of women's rights, but your public persona does not match your personal actions."
Reade said she wants her former boss to publicly admit to his transgressions and apologize for trying to smear her character "in order to cover up" his crimes.
"I want this brought to light and I want you to admit it in public," she demanded.
"I want a public apology for calling me a Russian agent and having other people try to smear my character in order to cover your crimes."
The presidential candidate has denied Reade's allegations of sexual assault.
His campaign has steadfastly denied her claims, saying the alleged sexual assault "absolutely did not happen."
But Biden and other Democratic figures have remained notably silent against the claims, even as pressure for him to drop out of the presidential race continues to build.
