Asked by the tweet time on a 2017 for praising Biden published, Reade says it’s from a time “when I still feel kind of conflict Joe Biden. And during that time I was not willing to come up with forward, what happened to me. “While the democratic presidential race in progress were received in spring 2019, Reade was to claim one of the eight women who have come forward in quick succession, that Biden had touched her inappropriately, made them feel uncomfortable or invaded their personal space in the past. (These complaints included allegations that Biden kissed her on the back of the head, rubbed his nose and hugged her “just a little ‘too long bite.”) Reade a local newspaper at the time said that Biden touched while working in his office in a way that made them feel uncomfortable. “He used to put his hand on my shoulder and a finger in the neck escape,” said Reade, the Union of Nevada County, California.

After the women came forward in 2019, Biden confirmed their complaints and promised to avoid such behavior in the future. “The limits of protection of personal space has been cleared, and I do,” he said in a video on complaints reacts April 3, 2019. “I got it. I hear what you say, I understand it, and I’ll be much more aware. “said Reade, with several media outlets as part of its initial statements to touch inappropriate.

And remember, He happens all at once.

But if other women came forward claiming that Biden had touched her inappropriately in 2019, said Reade, who has a “central” conversation with her daughter. “He said: ‘You know, he’s just too strong.” ‘Reade says,’ I do not think you should say something because it has too much power. “And I thought, oh, well now I have to.” Reade said that the decision was not easy. “I was always Joe Biden came into conflict,” he says, noting his work on violence against women act. “So you can see how it’s almost like cognitive dissonance. This person did to me, but he did good things. Confirmed” Reade have aspects of the question? Friends and Family Reade corroborated parts of their account news agencies, including a friend who says that she told of sexual violence simultaneously. Reade former colleague Lorena Sanchez told Business Insider that reminds Reade discuss sexual harassment by a former brother DC Reade boss told the Post in a report published on April 12, he told his sister reminded him that Biden was “inappropriate . “days after his interview with the post, adding that he remembered his sister saying that Biden had put his hands under her clothes.

What does Biden? After weeks of leave from his campaign in a prepared statement that denies the incident, said Biden about the allegations for the first time in his interview on May 1 in the morning Joe. He vehemently denied any wrongdoing “E. is not true,” said Biden. “I say clearly never, never happened, and he did not. It never happened.” Mika Brzezinski interviewer cited past statements Biden, is to believe that women have stated that sexual violence to come forward. “Look, from the beginning, I have to take the statement seriously believe women female officers, when in front of the stairs, and then, you vet look into it,” said the former vice president. “This is also true in this case. Women have the right to be heard, and the press must strictly investigate claims they make. I will always respect this principle. But in the end, anyway, is the truth that matters. And in If this is true, the allegations are false. ” Biden said he could remember made a complaint from Reade. “I do not remember any kind of complaint they have done. It ‘been 27 years ago, and I do not remember, nor anyone else I know,” he said, when asked if he remembered Brzezinski Reade. “I’m not going to ask his motivation, I do not get that in, I do not know why they say,” said Biden. “I do not know why all of a sudden he got up after 27 years. I do not understand. But I’m not going to come in and their motive in question, I will not attack. You have the right to say what he wants to say, but I have the right to say, look at the facts, checking to see if any of what he says has claimed there are true. “from a can called Biden the secretary of the Senate to try Reade the national Archives for the complaint record, said it filed . “I ask you to accept or directly all necessary measures to improve the situation of the records to establish this office, and once you have lied to conduct a search for the alleged complaint and make public the results of this research,” Biden wrote. “I would ask that the public version is not just a complaint, if one exists, but any and all other documents in the records of the question.” Asked Brzezinski also whether to approve the opening of its documents would be Senate, currently held at the University of Delaware, to search for all relevant documents. Biden, whose records are currently sealed until two years after his retirement from public life, pushed back on the need to open the records. “I do not have the records contain personal,” he said. “These are public records, my words, my papers, my statements. And if the document exists, it would be preserved in the National Archives, where documents from say office who presented their complaints are also saved. “As has been treated the assertion? Some media have been slow to take the story, but the New York Times, The Washington Post and The Associated Press all investigations started shortly after. TIME requested an interview with the first Reade on March 31, shortly after he admitted Halper interview. Reade accepted an interview, but at the appointed time in the month of April, Reade, said he felt bad. The interview was then postponed for a few days, but Reade has to answer a call or text. He called again on May 1, according to written requests for this story received. Though they talked for about half an hour with time, she did not talk at this time about the alleged sexual assault, which she says is emotionally exhausting.
