Former Senate aide Tara Reade, said in a new interview that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should withdraw from the 2020 race.
According to CNN, Reade who has accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993 made some comments recently.
She said, “You and I were there, Joe Biden. Please step forward and be held accountable. And if you feel that you can address this in a real way, then you know and I know that you should step down,”
Reade disclosed in her first on-camera interview since Biden personally denied her allegation last week. “You should not be running on character for the president of the United States.”
In an interview that was released on Friday Reade made the remarks to former Fox News and NBC anchor Megyn Kelly.
Meanwhile, CNN spoke with Reade over the phone multiple times about her allegation. Last weekend Reade canceled an on-camera interview with CNN.
The said accusation occurred when Reade was an aide in his then-Senate office.
She told CNN, and reiterated in the interview with Kelly, that in a corridor on Capitol Hill, Biden had pushed her up against a wall and forcibly put his fingers inside of her
