Biden denies he sexually assaulted Tara Reade

“I want to address allegations by a former staffer that I engaged in misconduct 27 years ago,” Biden said in a written statement released by his campaign. “They aren’t true. This never happened.”…

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has accused Democrats of abandoning the criticism and skepticism they applied to Kavanaugh when it comes to Biden.

“I think what most Americans would like is sort of a symmetrical evaluation of these allegations rather than what we have seen at least so far,” McConnell said on Fox News Radio this week.

Some Democrats have reached a similar conclusion, and have expressed frustration that their party leaders have not been more vocal. Many top Democrats have been reluctant to weigh in publicly at length, but have defended him when asked about the accusations.
