Biden denies sexual assault allegations

                         Joe Biden denies allegations of sexual assault 

"This never happened. I don’t know why she is saying it".
On Friday, Joe Biden denied a sexual assault allegation made against him by a former member of his senate staff, making his first statement on an issue that has become unpleasant considering his campaign running for president.
The former vice president has spent about 20 minutes on an interview on “Morning Joe” denying over and over the allegations accusing him of sexual assault in a hallway back in the 1990s by one of his senate staff Tara Reade.
“They aren’t true. This never happened” said Biden on a statement on “Morning Joe”.
Biden was under heavy pressure from Democrats to handle the situation personally after his campaign denied it while some prominent members of the Democratic Party started to have questions about the issue.
“I don’t remember any type of complaint she may have made. It was 27 years ago. I don’t remember, nor does anyone else that I’m aware of the fact that I don’t remember any complaint ever been made” Biden said.
Tara Reade claims that in 1993, when she was a member of the Senate staff, Joe Biden put his hands on her skirt and penetrated her in a congressional hallway.
However, Biden denies that and says that no one has ever made any similar allegation and why exactly after 27 years and in a point where he is running for the presidency of the United States of America.
“I’m not going to question her motive or get into that at all. I don’t know why she is saying this, I don’t know after 27 years this gets raised. I don’t understand that”.
Tara said that she did raised some pf the issue with her supervisor and senior staffer from Biden’s office at that time. Nonetheless, they both man and a woman- have said, unequivocally, that she never came to them and complained or raised issues.
