Joe Biden addresses sexual assault allegations

Joe Biden Democrat’s nomination does not come without problems, mainly a sexual assault allegation made public weeks ago, the former vice president has addressed these allegations.

Tara Reid says that in 1993, then Senator Joe Biden pinned her against a wall and sexually assaulted her.

“No, it is not true. I’m saying unequivocably, it never, never happened. It did never happened,” Biden said.

His denial is whipping up criticism of hypocrisy from Republicans still feeling the sting of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process.

In the previous months, Democrats including Joe Biden said the woman who accused cabinet of sexual assault, should be given the benefit of the doubt.

“Women are to be believed, given the benefit of the doubt, as they come forward and say something that is that they said happened to them. They should start off with the presumption they’re telling the truth. then you have to look at the circumstances and the facts and the facts in this case, do not exist. They never happened,” Biden said.

Tara Reid said she made a formal complaint at the time, which Joe Biden says there is no record of.

The Democrat Party said that US President Donald Trump is the wrong messenger to criticise Joe Biden having been accused by numerous women of sexual assault and harassment.
