The Secretary of the United States Senate has denied former Vice President Joe Biden’s request to try to resolve the alleged sexual abuse scandal involving the virtual Democratic candidate for the White House, and claims if the document is on that he alludes, it would exist personally.
The alleged victim, Tara Reade, who coordinated the scholarship program in Biden’s office in 1993, claimed in April that the former senator had mistreated her in a hallway on Capitol Hill. Previously, he had accused him of touching, leading to suspicions that clouded the democratic campaign.
Biden spoke on Friday for the first time to deny the allegations – “didn’t it, it never happened” – and cited inconsistencies in Reades’ statement. To dispel any doubts, he asked the Senate to clarify whether the woman had made a formal complaint, as she claimed.
The Senate Secretary replied to this request this Monday after consulting lawyers who affirmed that the office “was not authorized to publish this information.” In this sense, according to a statement by the US public service broadcaster NPR, he pointed out the need for “confidentiality”.
