BIDEN on ALLEGATIONS: ‘I Think Women Should Be Believed… BUT This Never Happened’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.12.20

Former Vice President Joe Biden deflected questions regarding recent allegations of sexual assault during his time in the Senate; saying “all women should be believed” but adding “this never happened.”

“On these allegations from Tara Reade… I know you’ve denied them, but you’ve also said all women should be believed. What do you say to Americans who believe Tara Reade and won’t vote for you because of it,” asked George Stephanopoulos.

“That’s their right. I think women should be believed. They should have an opportunity to state their case… Then it’s the responsibility of journalists to go out and investigate those. At the end of the day, the truth is the truth… This never happened. That’s the truth,” said Biden.

THE LATEST: Joe Biden Denies Allegations of Sexual Assault by Tara Reade

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.01.20

Former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden publicly denied allegations of sexual assault Friday from a member of his staff nearly 30 years ago.

“Did you sexually assault Tara Reade?” asked MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski.

“No, it is not true. I’m saying unequivocally it never, never happened. And it didn’t. It never happened,” denied Biden.

Tara Reade -a former staffer to Joe Biden- alleges the former Senator sexually assaulted her in Washington, DC roughly three decades ago and is now the center of a political scandal at the center of the 2020 presidential election.

“Reade accepted a staff position for then-Delaware Sen. Biden in the fall of 1992 after having interned for then-Rep. Leon Panetta, a friend of the senator. One of the main roles of her position was to oversee the office interns. She recalled her early time in the office as being ‘very positive,’ noting a holiday party she attended at Biden’s Delaware residence. One of her biggest highlights was meeting Maya Angelou at President Bill Clinton’s inauguration in January 1993,” writes Fox News.

“When he’d see me, he’d usually put his hands on me. And that’s just something he did. And I didn’t like it. It made me uncomfortable,” Reade told Fox News in an extensive interview. “Like, for instance, I had worked for Leon Panetta and others later, and no one had ever done that with me. Like my boss had never put their hands on me, so that was strange to me.”

“While she had not yet filed a formal complaint, she did recall having conversations with Marianne Baker, Biden’s executive assistant, and Ted Kaufman, his chief of staff, about his alleged behavior, saying they ‘took notes,” adds Fox.
