Resources to help survivors of sexual assault include the National Sex Assault Hotline (800-656-4673), and The Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN) online hotline.
Mitch McConnell said Thursday that Joe Biden will likely have to “participate in releasing all of the information related to” the allegations of sexual assault from former Biden staffer Tara Reade.
Though the Senate majority leader has not made the same request for the dozen-plus sexual assault allegations leveled at President Donald Trump, McConnell (R-Ky.) said that the Reade allegation is fair game. Reade claims that Biden assaulted her in 1993; Biden’s campaign has denied the allegation but the vice president has yet to address it directly himself.
On Fox News, McConnell was asked if Biden’s papers at the University of Delaware should be released to offer more information about the alleged incident. McConnell and Biden worked closely together during Biden’s time as vice president on fiscal matters.
