The existence of the Senate report has become a key element of the accusations against Biden, which he has flatly denied.

"He feels very good about where he stands, he's had record approval with the Republican Party ... and we think Joe Biden is hiding", she said.

And they anxious that "in the midst of a catastrophic virus and devastating economic coma that command our full attention, Mr. Biden finds himself on the outside looking in".

"And for over a year now on this problem I have been saying throughout this entire mess of Democratic process Hillary Clinton has been sitting on the sidelines looking for the opportunity to avenge her loss in 2016".

He also said Reade did not raise concerns with supervisors or senior staffers at the time.

Biden, in his TV interview, said "there are so many inconsistencies" in Reade's various accounts. Despite the scandal, the favorite of the Democrats continues to participate in the presidential race.Details - in the material "Kommersant" "Sexual skeletons in the closet Joe Biden". "I in no way excuse my poor judgment on this matter and hope that every one will know that I am truly sorry for my mistakes".

Biden gave his first media interview Friday denying Reade's allegation that he pushed her against a wall and sexually assaulted her in 1993 when she worked for him.

Despite refusing to allow even a search of "Tara Reade" in the records, Biden reportedly sent campaign operatives to look through the records last spring shortly after he launched his presidential bid.

The AP reviewed notes of its 2019 interviews with Reade after she came forward in March with allegations of sexual assault against Biden. She cited "retaliation" as one factor behind her reluctance to do so.

Both sources spoke anonymously to protect their families' privacy, the report said.

Reade has said that she complained to multiple colleagues in the office about interactions with Biden that made her uncomfortable, but not about the alleged assault. Dennis Toner, who was Biden's deputy chief of staff at the time and one of the people Reade said she had discussed her complaints with, told CNN in an interview that he had no recollection of Reade or any conversation related to sexual harassment allegations. NO sexual assault or harassment allegation ever came up against him.

Bruenig admitted that Reade's story has holes in it because of inconsistencies.

Jeffress said his lawyers interviewed dozens of people and had access to any paperwork they requested from Biden's office.
