Biden's Accuser Says She Never Explicitly Accused Biden Of Assault In Report
Tara Reade has accused Joe Biden of sexual assault. She now says assault was never mentioned when she filed a report about it, according to the Guardian.
Reade claimed she was too scared to mention sexual assault or harassment when she spoke with the Congressional Personnel Office. Yesterday, Biden called on the Secretary of the Senate to locate Reade's complaint.
Tara Reade, the former Senate staffer who alleges Joe Biden sexually assaulted her 27 years ago, has said she filed a limited report with a congressional personnel office that did not explicitly accuse him of sexual assault or harassment.
“I remember talking about him wanting me to serve drinks because he liked my legs and thought I was pretty and it made me uncomfortable,” Reade said. “I know that I was too scared to write about the sexual assault.”
Reade said she described her issues with Biden, then a senator from Delaware, but “the main word I used – and I know I didn’t use sexual harassment – I used ‘uncomfortable’. And I remember ‘retaliation’.”
