Joe Biden Addressing Tara Reade Allegations Today


After months of not even acknowledging the issue, Joe Biden is preparing to address sexual assault allegations against him. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee will be on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" this morning to respond to the accusation by former staffer Tara Reade.

As we told you before, Reade says then-Senator assaulted her at the Capitol back in the early 90s. While his campaign has denied the allegations, Biden has kept quiet. And until yesterday, so had Democratic Party Leaders. That changed during a press conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

She says there was "never any record" to support the allegations and maintains she's proud to support Biden. Pelosi also took issue with a reporter's line of questioning as it relates to her support of the "Me Too" movement. Pelosi sharply noted that she has four daughters and said she doesn't need a lecture about her support accusers.
