New Details Emerge On Joe Biden’s Alleged Sexual Assault Of Tara Reade
MARION, IOWA - JANUARY 27: Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign event at the Prairie Hill Pavilion January 27, 2020 in Marion, Iowa. In a what appears to be a neck-and-neck race, Biden is ahead of rival candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by 6 points in a USA Today/Suffolk University poll but is running behind Sanders by 8 points according to a New York Times/Siena College poll, both polls of likely Iowa caucus-goers conducted at about the same time.

On Friday, new details from the alleged sexual assault by Joe Biden on his former Senate staffer Tara Reade emerged during an interview with journalist Megyn Kelly.

Reade told Kelly that Biden used graphic language when he allegedly sexually assaulted her and tried to take things even further.

“He was kissing my neck area and he whispered, did I want to go somewhere else in a low voice,” Reade said. “He said some other things. I can’t remember everything he said, but he said something vulgar.”

“May I ask what?” Kelly asked.

“He said, ‘I want to f*** you,’” Reade claimed. “And he said it low and I was pushing away.”

Reade later said that she was leaving the Democratic Party.

In late March, Reade documented the alleged assault which she claims happened when a supervisor instructed her to take a gym bag to Biden.

“I handed him the thing. He greeted me. He remembered my name. And then we were alone,” Reade said. “It was the strangest thing. There was no like exchange really. He just had me up against the wall. I was wearing like a skirt, a business skirt.”

“It happened all at once…his hands were on me and underneath my clothes,” Reade continued. “Yeah, and he went down my skirt but then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me. He said several things. I can’t remember everything he said.”


In April, Reade filed a report of the incident with the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C.

Reade’s claim gained traction and credibility when NewsBusters unearthed an old CNN video clip from 1993 that reportedly showed Reade’s mother calling into “Larry King Live” to talk about a problem that her daughter was having with a “prominent senator.”

Transcript of the video:

LARRY KING: San Luis Obispo, California, hello.

CALLER: Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him.

KING: In other words, she had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?

CALLER: That’s true.


Additional evidence surfaced this week when a local California newspaper found court records from Reade’s former husband who said in a court document that Reade had told him that she was sexually harassed while working for Biden.
