Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has finally addressed a serious abuse allegation against him.
The former vice president flatly denied that he sexually assaulted one of his former Democratic staffers named Tara Reade. She accuses Biden of pushing her up against a wall, putting his hand up her skirt and violating her when he was a senator in 1993.
The allegation has gained traction in recent days after others supported Reade's account, including her brother, saying she previously told them about it.
After several leading Democrats said Biden should respond, he appeared today on MSNBC's Morning Joe program.
"No, it is not true," Biden stated. "I'm saying unequivocally, it never, never happened."
Biden went on to say that women who come forward with allegations should be listened to, but those claims should be investigated.
Although he was interviewed multiple times by major media organizations since the allegations surfaced, Biden was never asked about it until today.
"The former staffer has said she filed a complaint back in 1993," Biden told MSNBC, "She does not have a record of this alleged complaint. The papers from my Senate years that I donated to the University of Delaware do not contain personnel files."
"There is only one place a complaint of this kind could be—the National Archives. The National Archives is where the records are kept," he continued.
