The former Senate staffer, Tara Reade, who recently accused presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of sexual assault, blasted Hillary Clinton for endorsing the former VP’s presidential campaign.
Recentlly, Reade claimed that Joe Biden kissed her and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent in 1993, an allegation the Biden campaign has denied.
While slamming Hillary Clinton, Reade made it clear that she expected more from a fellow Democrat.
“I voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. I voted for her in the primary. I’m a lifelong Democrat. But yet, what I see now is someone enabling a sexual predator and it was my former boss, Joe Biden, who raped me,” Reade told Fox News.
“Hillary Clinton has a history of enabling powerful men to cover up their sexual predatory behaviors and their inappropriate sexual misconduct. We don’t need that for this country. We don’t need that for our new generation coming up that wants institutional rape culture to change.”
Reade added a touch of defiance.
“I will not be smeared, dismissed or ignored. I stand in truth and I will keep speaking out,” she said.
Reade also petitioned the University of Delaware to release documents in its possession from Biden’s time as a Democratic senator from Delaware.
She said she believes the documents may contain her formal sexual harassment complaint, as The Federalist Papers reported.
“I’m calling for the release of the documents being held by the University of Delaware that contain Biden’s staff personnel records because I believe it will have my complaint form, as well as my separation letter and other documents,” Reade said.
“Maybe if other staffers that have tried to file complaints would come to light — why are they under seal? And why won’t they be released to the public?”
Many people on social media supported Reade’s rebuke. Juanita Broaddrick, who has claimed she was raped by former President Bill Clinton, tweeted that Hillary Clinton was “good at enabling sexual predators.”
